For The MG6 is spacious and well equipped, plus it remains composed in bends.
Against It makes very little financial sense due to its inefficient engines and weak resale values, while the interior plastics look cheap and nasty, and refinement is awful.
What Car? says
The MG6 feels out of date in several key areas, so it’s impossible to recommend.

There are 6 MG MG6 versions available
Target Price team says:
The MG6 is available 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 inefficient compared with the engines in most rivals.
Once you’ve chosen your preferred bodystyle and engine, you have three trims to pick from. We’d recommend the cheapest of these because it still comes pretty well equipped, although mid-spec SE cars do get several desirable extras, including sat-nav and rear parking sensors.
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.
