mg3-motability-car-topMG MG3

The MG3 is a five door hatchback similar in size to the Ford Fiesta and Peugeot 208, it is also the cheapest car on the Motability Scheme at £46.75 per week. The MG3 is a bit of a surprise, it’s roomy, sporty to look at, fun to drive and does have the rare commodity of having a bit of a kerb appeal. The 1.5 litre petrol engine with 105bhp can take you to 62mph in 10.4 seconds and return 51.5 miles per gallon, so it is not the most economical and to get the best from the engine it does need to be revved hard. The level of equipment is excellent, 16 inch alloys wheels, LED daytime running lights, CD player with aux/USB input, bluetooth, DAB radio, all round electric windows, leather steering wheel with audio controls, very supportive sports seats, electronic air conditioning, electrically adjustable heated wing mirrors and remote central locking.
