Interior & comfort Rating

3.1 out of 5

Wind and road noise are kept relatively subdued but other cars in this class are better insulated from outside noise. Engine noise at motorway speeds isn’t noticeable when the diesel is in sixth gear and cruising, even if it is clattery under acceleration.

MG6 dashboard

The MG6 has a new seven-inch touchscreen integrated into the dashboard but the screen still looks too small for the space it sits in and the interior’s quality is still patchy in places. The electric handbrake that replaces the rather strange one in the previous model helps to declutter the cabin but the steering-wheel mounted controls are a bit fiddly and annoying to use.

Equipment

Equipment levels across the three MG6 trim levels are good and help to make the car great value for money. The entry-level S model features LED daytime running lights, air-conditioning, 16-inch alloy wheels, heated seats, a CD player and USB connectivity.

Mid-range TS cars get MG touch, which includes sat-nav, Bluetooth, and DAB radio, plus a leather steering wheel, rear parking sensors, and automatic lights and wipers.

The top-of-the-range trim includes electric leather seats, a rear parking camera, dual zone climate control and a chrome grille.

Tech

The MG6’s sat nav seems old fashioned compared to most other manufacturers’ systems. We could forgive the unattractive orange-tinted user interface if it were easier to use but, unfortunately, it’s a pain. If you’re using the navigation system and want to access another function, you have to shut down the nav before reopening it.
