The winner of our best security award for 2013 - the MG6 - shows that giant strides have been made to keep Britain’s cars safe from thieves.
This year, we were looking for a manufacturer that has demonstrated the greatest effort to improve security, either through a particular innovation or a sheer determination to design out crime.
MG’s new hatch stood out for us. The MG6 has been bolstered with the industry’s highest-rated alarm and immobiliser system, complete with perimeter detection. Meanwhile, body security has been fortified with first-press double locking, and vehicle identification enhanced with markings.
It’s impressive work, and gratifying to see a newcomer in this price bracket achieve the top five-star rating from Thatcham for resilience against theft of the vehicle, and four stars in the ‘theft from’ category.
