The MG3 debuted at the MG Zero Concept at the Beijing Auto Show in April. The MG3 is now ready and the production car will debut at the Guangzhou Auto Show starting at December 21. MG3′s in colors were seen at a gas station, for road testing for sure, but more likely to generate some free pre-publicity on websites like this blog. Well, job done MG, you got it! The MG3 will get 1.3 and 1.5 4-cilinder engines, price will start around 70.000 yuan.

After seeing loads of camouflaged MG3′s in funkt colors it is almost a relieve to see a brownish car for once. Bad color doesn’t kill the design meaning its lines are strong. Apart from the 108hp 1.5 a smaller and cheaper 1.3 will be available as well, no numbers on power for that one yet.

MG keeps testing barely camouflaged MG3′s in public, then leaving the cars unattended. Might they do this on purpose? Well, I’ll play along because the set includes one good pic of the interior. Sporty with an very flashy gearknob and handbrake.

This is actually the same car as seen in spy shots on May 13 but for some reason we now have two more pics and for the first time one of the back. It all loox very sporty, the area above the exhaust is of a very ‘interesting’ design.

The new MG3 is confirmed for October and this is the first picture of the production vehicle. It loox very similar to the MG Zero concept car that MG unveiled at the Beijing Auto Show. All concept-thingies are gone and what is left is a sharp-looking small hatch. It will come with 1.5 and 1.3 litre engines and price will start around 70.000 rmb, and that is indeed a 10.000 more than we thought earlier. Still competitive enough, especially with those lines and the MG-nametag.
