As mentioned on the hallowed pages of China Car Times last week, one Mr. Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear fame, got himself behind the wheel of the all new MG6 Dieselstrong> for a Sunday Telegraph review. Did he praise the strong handling and chassis that Auto Car and other UK magazines raved about? Of course not, he went straight for the jugular and denounced the MG6 as being “Hysterically terrible“.
Jeremy maybe over exaggerating, clearly there are some parts of the MG6′s interior that could have been improved somewhat with better levels of plastics but overall it is acceptable – not aspirational but acceptable. Clarkson maybe considered by many as somewhat of an airhead, but he is influential in the British automotive industry and such a review is likely to give the fledgling MG UK another punch in the face as they try to revive the brand with new products and a new direction.
