This car comes with adjustable driving seat, which is one of the most urged features, for comfortable driving. The steering wheel can get adjusted for reach and fang, when needed. The legroom is disappointing, and more addition, to the moldy, is right-side offset pedals, the footrest is close, to kiss the clutch pedal. Hand-break level uplifts the uneasiness, due to its improper fixing. Infotainment system in higher variants is spofish, and the positioning, of the control dial, is also, not up to the standards.
Space upfront is sufficient for average people, but if your height is 6 feet or more, then you can find the roof space inadequate for you. At the rear seats, the central sap, makes the passage difficult, for the passenger in central rear. Boot space is considerable and well crafted, though the seats do not get lay down completely flat.
Entry level S-spec cars have stereo with USB socket and aux-in, AC, and alloy wheels. If you look at the SE models, then you can find that they have rear parking sensors, Bluetooth, satellite navigation and cruise control. In the range top variant TSE you can get reversing camera, dual zone climate control, leather furnishings.
You can own this car with 1.8 liter 158bhp turbocharged petrol engine and the 1.9 liter 148bhp diesel engine. The petrol engine is flexible enough, but not that much speedy performer as you expect. Diesel engine has 6-speed gear-box and plenty of mid-spectrum torque, for remarkable performance.
It stays satis oblate in corners. The steering wheel is too light to hold. Body movements are not as well controlled in the diesel variants. It suffers over bumps and other hurdles on roads.
Diesel engine sounds louder and vibrates even in placid acceleration. Excessive road and wind noise compel you, to raise your voice, for talking, with your companion in cabin, while driving. Petrol engine also growls and it becomes trashy above 3500rpm.
Your insurance cost can be at lower side, because MG has limited the top speed, which ranges from thirteen for a base petrol to fifteen for a top variant diesel. Top-half of the dashboard gives the tender feel. For security it has stability control and curtain, side and front air-bags. It earned 4 stars out of 5 in the crash test, conducted by Euro NCAP. Integrated stereo, deadlocks and alarm are the other tools fitted, to make it anti-theft.
