    About the MG3

    Sophie G purchased this MG3 used for $16,990 (including all on-road costs) in 2023. Sophie G would buy this car again because: “Great little car packed with all the modern features. The car has been very reliable, fuel efficient and super easy to navigate and drive. The technology makes for a pleasant positive experience and the cost was in a very affordable price range!”

    How reliable has your car been? Tell us about any issues.

    The car has been very reliable. I have had no issues and have done a 1600km trip in two days which it drove really well for. It has been very practical in size and speed for getting around traffic easily and parking.

    What do you think of the ownership experience with your car?

    The experience of owning an MG vehicle for myself has been great.

    From the friendly customer service received at the dealership on enquiring, showing me the features of the vehicle and even checking upon after purchase to ensure everything is running smoothly. The car runs great and has been nothing but reliable and pleasant to drive.

    Are you happy with the price and features of your car?

    The price was very affordable and impressive given the accessories that are actually included with this model being the lowest.

    Even though the vehicle is small it has all the necessary technology plus the extra modern features which is all included in the price. It has a sleek modern look along with a very spacious boot for the size of the car.

    The price is amazing compared to other vehicles on the market that don’t include anywhere near as many features.

    What do you think of the performance and economy of your car?

    The car drives really smoothly on the road and has no problem getting up to speed when accelerating and braking quickly.

    The power of the car is good and the four-speed gearbox is okay although it struggles to decide what gear it wants when inclining on hills. Other than that, the car is very fuel efficient averaging at 570km off a full tank and is a quiet driving vehicle.

    What do you think of the technology in your car?

    The technology the car comes with is a real stand out, featuring all the modern add ons making it a pleasurable experience to drive. Apple CarPlay would have to be a standout allowing calls, messages and map directions.

    Along with cruise control, the reverse camera and reversing sensors. I’m not sure what other technology is out there that isn’t already in this vehicle.

    What do you think of the ride comfort and handling of your car?

    Even though the vehicle is small, the inside makes for a very enjoyable ride. The car is spacious with very comfortable seats, plenty of legroom and a good aircon/heating system. It is a good handling car that feels stable on the road, takes corners well and ultimately does exactly what it needs to do.

    Do you have any additional comments about your car?

    Perfect car for someone wanting a small reliable and efficient car to get around in that is in a very affordable price range used or brand new!
