Whilst waiting to go into the Royal Academy of Arts, in London’s Piccadilly, Martyn Watchurst stumbled upon MG’s flagship showroom and it proved to be a great use of his spare time.
Once Martyn walked into the showroom, he was immediately taken with the MG3. He said: “I hadn’t seen the new models, so when I spotted the MG3 I thought it looked great and the price was right.”
Martyn was so impressed with the MG3, he dropped in at Roadworthy in Bristol to take a closer look. Richard Onslow-Carey, a new salesman to the dealership, offered Martyn a test drive. It wasn’t long before he had picked out his MG3, which happened to be the 5,000th registered MG3 and Richard’s first sale.
Martyn said: “I’m so happy with the car; it’s designed really well and comes with a large amount of comfort and specification. I’m due to retire soon and it’s going to be a great little run-around car, particularly when I feel like having a break from my motorbike!
“The car, which I decided to buy with white and black graphics, has received a lot of interest from anyone who’s seen it and I’ve recommended it to them all.”
The popular MG3 supermini launched in 2013 and since then it has been the best seller for MG.
Matthew Cheyne, Head of Sales and Marketing for MG, said: “It’s fantastic to mark the 5,000th sale of this great car and the figure is only going to carry on rising as we grow as a brand.
“We are always pleased to hear that people love the MG3 so much, as it really is a fantastic car. If you haven’t yet tested this car for yourself, then it’s worth doing now as we’ve got some great offers available which make this affordable car even more affordable.”
About MG Motor
The iconic British MG brand can trace its history back to 1924 and is world famous for making stylish cars that are fun to drive and own and are sold at remarkably affordable prices. Modern MGs, which are designed, engineered and finally assembled in Longbridge, Birmingham, continue this long and rich MG tradition.
Two cars currently come off the Longbridge assembly lines: the MG6 and the MG3 with several models planned for the immediate and longer-term future.
The MG6 is a medium-sized fastback offering fantastic dynamic handling, high levels of interior comfort and a tremendously spacious cabin area with a cavernous boot. The MG6 won the category ‘£17,500 and under’ in the Caravan Club Towcar of the Year Awards in 2015. It also won the 2014 Auto Express Driver Power Best Handling Award.
The MG3 is a new generation supermini which brings fun and style to this sector of the market at very affordable prices. The 1.5-litre petrol-powered car can also be personalised, so owners have the option of giving their car their own style-statement.
MG was voted the fourth best manufacturer in the UK in the Auto Express Driver Power Awards in 2015. MG was the fastest growing brand in Britain in 2014 as shown by official figures issued by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.
