Used MG car buying guide
Since its re-entrance into the Australian market in 2016, MG has offered customers an affordable yet premium product range, with a particular focus on stylish, well-equipped and spacious urban SUVs and hatchbacks. Whilst Chinese vehicles have historically been labelled as ‘cheap and nasty’, companies such as MG are making waves by upending this stereotype and securing their place as one of the best selling car brands in Australia.
Which MG model is for me?
MG leaves you spoiled for choice with their large range of ultra affordable, small to midsize SUVs and hatchbacks. Here’s a few of our top picks:
The MG3 is a stylish and compact car that combines affordability, modern features, and a touch of personality for an all-round enjoyable driving experience. Recently crowned the best-selling light car in Australia, the MG3 is the ideal choice for navigating narrow city streets and squeezing into tight parking spaces.
Competing with similar small-size SUVs like the Mazda CX-3 and Hyundai Kona, the MG ZS stands out from the crowd for its good looks, clever interior design and excellent value. Available in both petrol and fully electric models, the MG ZS is praised for its practicality and smooth ride.
The MG HS, a dynamic mid-sized SUV, effortlessly combines style, performance, and cutting-edge technology. With both petrol and hybrid engine choices, the MG HS cements itself in the league of beloved family cars, alongside the likes of the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V.
Is a used MG safe?
Safety takes centre stage for MG, and they've got the ANCAP ratings to prove it. Some models, such as their 5-star rated MG HS, utilise an advanced driver assistance system known as MG Pilot to keep drivers safe. This technology equips cars with a range of safety features such as active emergency braking, blind spot detection and traffic jam assist to name just a few!
In addition to their expert tech keeping you safe, many MG cars feature a robust cage body, curtain airbags, and whiplash minimising seats, so drivers can hit the road feeling totally at ease. Basically, MGs aren’t just cool to cruise in–they’ve also got your back on the safety front too.
What are the benefits of buying a used MG?
Buying a used MG is a great option for those looking to buy a distinctive and sporty car on a budget. Modern MGs come in a variety of models and are widely available, giving you the flexibility to find a car that’s right for you without the wait. When properly maintained, used MGs offer a reliable and enjoyable driving experience, only enhanced by the brand’s enduring reputation. If something does go wrong–don’t panic! All MG cars come with a 7-year unlimited km warranty (regardless of a change in ownership!).
