The steering wheel adjusts for reach and rake, and the driver’s seat is height adjustable. However, its base is short, so it doesn’t support your legs properly. To make matters worse, the pedals are offset to the right, the footrest is too close to the clutch pedal and the design of the handbrake lever makes it easy to pinch your thumb. The infotainment system on higher-spec cars also disappoints, because it’s horribly complex and the main control dial is awkwardly positioned.
MG6 space & practicality
There’s plenty of room in the front of the MG6, but six-footers may find rear head room a little tight, and a central tunnel makes life uncomfortable for a central rear passenger. The boot is large and well shaped. However, it has a big load lip and the rear seats lie at a pronounced angle when folded down.
You need to buy the MG6 as cheaply as possible for it to make any sense, so it’s fortunate that entry-level S-spec cars come with air-conditioning, alloy wheels, four electric windows and a stereo with aux-in and USB sockets. Mid-level TS spec adds satellite-navigation, cruise control, Bluetooth and rear parking sensors (particularly welcome given the poor rear vision). Meanwhile, range-topping TL cars also get leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control and a reversing camera.
