Help Design the New MG3 – or at least feel like it

MG has shown the new MG3 supermini to UK influencers for the first time – in preparation for a possible 2012 launch of the new British-designed Ford Fiesta rival.

MG3 In ChinaKey UK customers, designers, suppliers and industry analysts were invited to a secret design forum at Prodrive’s Warwickshire test facility, to help MG generate initial opinions on how the new five-door supermini will be received.

While not yet confirmed for UK sale, MG Motors is very hopeful the supermini will soon get the green light (with assembly over here a strong hope, too). Because of this, the firm has started gathering data, from as broad a cross section as possible.

Furthermore, although the basic design of the car is fixed, MG is also seeking comments from UK motorists on what they would like changed. The Chinese-spec left-hand drive show car is representative of Eastern tastes, but these might not necessarily match European ones.

MG thus quizzed everyone at the Prodrive event on the bits they don’t like, as well as the ones they do. The foks over at MSN Cars was amongst those invited, and filled in the same questionnaire that all invitees did. MG Motor will be keen to hear what you’ve got to say: so, for the chance to influence what could potentially be your next supermini, make sure your voice is heard.
