Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

The MG 3 isn't too cramped inside. While it's not as roomy in the front or back as the Dacia Sandero, it’s roughly on a par with the Ford Fiesta. Not bad for a car with such a budget price tag.

There’s enough head and leg room to ensure four adults will stay comfortable, even on long journeys. Boot space isn't great compared with the Sandero (or many other small cars for that matter), but the load bay is at least a practical, square shape and the rear seats can be folded down when you need to take longer loads (the seatback splits in a 60/40 configuration).

In terms of interior storage, the 3 has decent-sized door bins and a generously sized glovebox. If you opt for the range-topping Exclusive model, you get map pockets, too.
