The new MG3.

Bigger than Seat Ibiza/MG too

In recent years, sales of super mini vehicles have fallen, becoming more expensive in the area of ​​NIS 120,000, and are suffering from increasing competition from the small Jeeps.

The popular Toyota Yaris hybrid already costs from NIS 134,000.

The hybrid Honda Jazz has also already taken off to a ridiculous 151 thousand shekels.



The new MG3 unveiled today at the Geneva Motor Show could change that.

After we had already seen it in the manufacturer's renderings, the production car arrived, with the same rounded exterior design and a driver's environment very reminiscent of the MG4.

The trunk has a modest volume of 293 liters/MG

The dimensions are larger than the Toyota Yaris and even the Seat Ibiza, which continues with gasoline engines only: 4.11 meters long, 1.80 meters wide, 1.5 meters high and a wheelbase of 2.57 meters.

The trunk has a volume of 293 liters, compared to 286 liters in the Yaris but 355 liters in the Ibiza.



The MG3 will be marketed with hybrid drive only, with a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine using the Atkinson method and an electric motor, where the electric motor (136 hp) is more powerful than the gasoline (102 hp) in an unusual way.

The combined power is a high 194 hp for a popular hybrid, which weighs 1,285 kg.

As in MG4: 10.25-inch multimedia screen and 7-inch/MG digital dashboard

MG, on the other hand, has given up the usual continuously variable automatic transmission in favor of a classic 3-speed automatic, a genre we thought we got rid of in new cars 20 years ago.

Such a smaller and smoother box, but will the flexibility of the electric motor be able to overcome the lack of gears?

The official acceleration figures at least suggest so, with 8 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h and 5 seconds from 80 to 120 km/h.



With a 1.83 kW battery, MG promises a combined fuel consumption of 22.7 km per liter, a good figure and better than the Ibiza (17.2 kml) but inferior to the Hiaris (26.3 kml). It is able to travel short distances with electric drive at 80 km. That.

3-speed automatic box as before instead of a continuous box.

Quieter and smoother, but what about the performance?/MG

In the driver's environment there is a 10.25-inch multimedia screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, and a 7-inch dashboard.

The dimensions give potential to the spacious passenger cabin in the group, but we will know that when we drive it.

The equipment includes 4 USB sockets, 6 stereo speakers, parking sensors and a reverse camera.

The high level of finish comes with leather-like upholstery, a smart key, heated front seats and steering wheel and a 360-degree camera.

The warranty in Europe will be 7 years or 150 thousand km.



The safety equipment includes autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping and more.



And the price? In Europe, the MG3 is expected to cost from 20 thousand euros, 10% less than a basic Yaris hybrid, which costs Starting at NIS 134,000. But the Yaris is manufactured in France and is exempt from paying the 7% customs duty, which applies to the MG3, which is manufactured in China.



Will the MG importer be able to price the new super mini for less than NIS 120,000? We will know in the summer, when the new MG3 will be launched in Israel.
