The UK automotive media have mostly loved the MG6 but consumers didn’t due to the lack of a diesel. That’s changed, MG now have a oil burning engine available for the MG6 with a 1.8 unit that pushes out 148bhp, for UK’ers that translates into just over 53mpg and 139g of Co2. The gasoline MG6 was a tough sell in the UK with just ‘dozens’ being sold every month, but with a diesel on offer and sterling reviews like this from Auto Car, it seems there will be no trouble in selling a lot more.
Yesterday Auto Car published this review, but for some unusual reason it has been pulled. Here’s a snippet of what the original review had in store:
Now itâ€™s here, and itâ€™s good. Generous power is provided by an all-new UK-designed 1.85-litre, four-pot diseasel that is powerful, refined and has a wide torque spread. Peak power of 148bhp chimes in at 4000rpm, while peak torque begins at a relaxed 1800rpm, and is maintained into the 3000s. Combined fuel consumption of 53.5 mpg and CO2 output of 139g/km are competitive without being best in class: MG reckons further improvements are coming.
