MG3 coming to Europe

Latest spy shots confirm that the MG3 will go on sale in the UK, arriving early next year

These are the pictures that confirm the MG3 will be coming to the UK, complete with a new look and a few other European-friendly updates.

It was spotted testing in Spain wearing UK number plates and the camouflaged front hides a slightly updated fascia. The lower intake has been made shallower and is more shapely, and the grille has been given more of a wing shape, a lot like the new Renault Clio.

The car is already on sale in China but MG will be making changes to the suspension set up and the interior quality to help the car appeal to more demanding European customers.

The engine line up will consist of a 107bhp 1.5-litre petrol engine and a 1.3-litre engine with 87bhp. Future engines include a range of small turbos starting at 1.0-litre in size, plus, eventually, a 1.4 diesel.

The standard MG3 will go on sale early in 2013. A hot-hatch model will also be unveiled later in the year and a rugged Streetwise version may also be produced.
