MG dealers' mega deals

Time 9:13 am, September 18, 2012

MG Motor UK is pushing two eye-opening deals in a bid to entice more feet onto showroom floors.

The firm is allowing customers a £3,000 allowance against a new MG6 by trading in their old car. Any make or model qualifies for the deal, provided it has a valid MOT for at least 14 days.

That means customers can drive away in a UK-built MG6 from as little as £12,455.

In a separate deal, MG is offering free fuel for up to 15,000 miles on MG6 models. The company will provide buyers with a fuel genie card with a value of £2,400, which can be redeemed at fuel stations operated by Morrisons or Tesco supermarkets.

MG Motor UK’s Marketing Manager, Clint Cordle said: ‘These are both exceptionally good deals on MG6 GT fastback and MG6 Magnette sports saloons which already offer great value for money with high levels of standard equipment.’

The Birmingham-assembled MG6 has been trickling out of showrooms at a glacial rate – in August MG dealers shifted just six cars across the range – that’s one less than now defunct Swedish marque, Saab.

MG is hoping that this value-led sales push will therefore ramp up interest in the slow-selling C-segment hatchback and saloon.
