For The MG6 is spacious and well equipped, plus it remains composed in bends.
Against It makes no financial sense due to its inefficient engines and weak resale values, while the interior plastics look cheap and nasty, and refinement is awful.
The MG6 feels out of date in several key areas, so it’s impossible to recommend.

The MG6 is offered as a four-door saloon, which is badged Magnette, and a five-door ‘fastback’, badged GT.
There are also two engines to choose from: a turbocharged 1.8-litre petrol and a 1.9-litre diesel. We prefer the latter because it makes more financial sense, although it’s still dirty and inefficient compared with the engines in most rivals.
While the GT is available in three trims levels, the Magnette is only available in one fully-loaded form. This means you get niceties like sat-nav and leather upholstery, but it also means the car looks very expensive.
All MG6s come with a three-year/60,000 mile warranty, which is a little disappointing compared with the five- and seven-year deals offered by some rivals. There is a three-year, unlimited mileage roadside assistance package, though.
This model gives you loads of standard equipment, but the MG6 makes most sense as a budget buy, so we’d stick with the entry-level S hatchback.
