MG expects diesel-powered MG6 to be in demand in 2013

Article by Anita Panait, on December 24, 2012

Needing a D-sector car for your fleet or for your company? Then why not consider the diesel-powered versions of the MG6, which has been quite an attraction among fleet buyers and company car drivers. The MG6 DTi-TECH diesel is on top of many car-to-consider lists for 2013, given its class-leading insurance group ratings, extremely low BiK P11D prices and low servicing and repair costs.

With over half of D-sector cars sold in the UK being diesel-powered, MG expects to dispose 65 percent of the new MG6 DTi-TECH diesels in the fleet and business sectors. Despite having the interior space and comforts of a D-sector car, the MG6 has the dynamic agility of a smaller C-sector model. For over three years, MG expects the new MG6 GT and MG6 Magnette DTi-TECH diesels to be among the most economic for several company car drivers to run.

P11D prices for the MG6 DTi-TECH is at £16,820 for the GT in S trim; £18,020 for the GT in SE trim; £20,020 for the GT in TSE trim and the Magnette. The pricing for the new diesel MGs places the vehicles in the middle of the cutthroat car price structure. But what make MG’s vehicles more attractive than their rivals in the business sector is their very high levels of standard specification.

MG offers no optional features for its vehicles, as these options just add to the overall taxable value of the car. The S model features a very high level of standard trim, which includes anti-lock braking (ABS) with Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), Emergency Brake Assist (EBA), brake pad wear sensor, brake disc wiping, Stability Control System (SCS)  and Hill Hold.

Fuel figures for the diesel give: Urban 46.1 mpg (6.2 l/km), Extra Urban 59.0 mpg (4.8l/km) and Combined 53.5 mpg (5.3 l/km). The CO2 emissions are 139g/100km.
