MG3 SW – 80,000rmb to 120,000rmb – actually might be worth it

Share Our Knowledge With Your Friends, Contacts And Co-Workers

The MG3 SW is set to formally go on the market on March 12th 2008, priced at a reasonable 80,000 to 120,000rmb. When China Car Times first heard of NAC’s plan to relaunch the Streetwise, we were dubious – could they pull off re-releasing such an old car? The answer is clearly yes, as the MG3 was looking good at the Guangzhou Auto Show, and looks pretty damned good in the pictures below:

The Streetwise is set to come with either a 1.4 engine paired to a manual gearbox, or the larger 1.8 engine with a CVT gearbox. The Streetwise is actually pretty well placed in China to take on the latest wave of mini crossover vehicles such as the SX4, Polo Cross, and perhaps even the Nissan Qashqai (once launched). MG dealers are reportedly accepting deposits of 5000rmb for the MG3 SW!

    To who ever said the Streetwise wasnt a success.>

    The Streetwise was the only MG Rover model that ever met its sales estimates! I had one as a courtesy car and it was much better than the 25 that its based on!
