MG6 MPG and CO2

MG has dropped the 1.8-litre petrol engine that was available with the previous model, so if you want an MG6 you have no alternative to the 1.9-litre diesel engine.

It's been tweaked for the latest version of the car, meaning it's more efficient and more economical. It now emits 119g/km of CO2 instead of 129g/km, meaning road tax is £30 rather than £110 and the car is capable of 61.4mpg. While that's still some way off the class-leading Skoda Octavia and Peugeot 308, it still shouldn't cost you an awful lot to run.

MG6 insurance

Insurance companies are likely to rate the MG6 in group 14 or 15, which means the car is cheaper to insure than many of its rivals.

MG6 warranty

MG offers the MG6 with a three-year, 60,000 mile warranty. This is pretty average for the industry, and matches the one offered by Ford with the Focus. It does seem slightly stingy next to Kia's warranty though - buy a Cee'd and you're covered for seven years or 100,000 miles.

MG6 servicing

A standard service interval for the MG6 is once a year or every 15,000 miles.
