Avis Rent a Car will offer new MG6 models

Article by Christian A., on December 22, 2011

Avis Rent a Car will soon offer 100 MG6 GT fastbacks and MG6 Magnette sports saloons for rent. MG Motor UK had delivered these new MG6 models to Avis, one of the top car rental companies in the UK. Avis will put these cars in its national car hire fleet. Who benefits from this transaction are the customers who would hire the MGs and drive it as they attend business trips and go on holidays as well as other trips.

A 1.8-litre turbocharged engine powers both the MG6 Magnette sports saloons and the MG6 GT fastback. Five adults can be accommodated in these cars, which feature the famous MG driving dynamics. MG Motor’s plant at MG Birmingham designs, engineers, and assembles these cars. According to Anthony Ainsworth, Commercial Director of Avis Rent a Car, the company is “pleased” with the return of the MG marque.

MG6 provides the best chassis dynamics in its class, high levels of standard specs, and a spacious boot. Car buyers should know that the MG6 has the lowest insurance group ratings in its class. The S and SE models both have a rating of 13E while the range-topping TSE is 14E. According to Guy Jones, MG Motor UK’s Sales and Marketing Director, the company is “delighted” that Avis has the MG6 as a member of its fleet. On the road, the MG6 range is priced from £15,495.

The MG6 is a five-seater fastback that is designed to reflect the characteristics of the MG brand while also giving the volume market something different. MG 6 follows on the coattails of the MG F sports car.

MG Motor UK sales and marketing director Guy Jones says that the launch of MG 6 is a milestone for the brand and the rest of the automotive industry in the United Kingdom. MG brought a UK designed and engineered car to the world. Jones explains that at the moment, the brand is only building and selling the MG TF in the country, but they are planning to expand that to include the new MG products.

MG 6 was launched at the 2009 Guangzhou Auto Show and this signalled the beginning of a global presence for the brand. The Chinese launch signals the start of selling in different international markets, including the United Kingdom. The MG 6 will be available in China starting in January, with other markets following suit.

The brand also announced that the production for MG in China will be at the brand’s Lingang factory, starting in December 2009. Production at the UK Birmingham plant will begin before 2010 ends.
