What alternatives should I consider to a used MG MG3 hatchback?

The Dacia Sandero is by no means perfect, but, it's a very roomy car and you get the option of a more modern, turbocharged engine.

Value for money has always been a key selling point of the Kia Rio, and most examples will still have some warranty coverage left. The Rio's interior is well put together, if a little dull, and the car gets plenty of standard equipment.

Then there’s the Vauxhall Corsa, which has been a big seller for many years now thanks to low prices, affordable running costs and cheap insurance rates. It’s not the most exciting small car to drive, but it is one of the more spacious cars in its class.

Verdict

The MG 3 is a spacious small car that’s fun to drive, but a gutless engine and dated interior on pre-facelift examples mean there are better options

  • Fun to drive
  • Low insurance
  • Rear legroom
  • Poor engine performance
  • Plenty of road noise
  • Dated interior on pre-facelift examples
