MG Motor Australia has revealed a limited-edition version of its MG3 small car, the MG3S, an exclusive, sporty trim level for Australia-only.
The MG3S will be limited to just 100 units and consists of a contrast black highlighted sporty body kit including side skirts, a rear spoiler, black alloy wheels, limited edition badgework and weather shields.
It will be available in a choice of two interior colour schemes and will wear an MSRP of $16,990, sitting just $1000 above the entry-level Core’s $15,990 price, but below the top-spec Excite’s $17,490 price.
As a part of the upgrade the limited edition MG3 scores black alloy wheels.
Mechanically, the MG3S shares its running gear with the rest of the MG3 range, being powered by a 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated, four-cylinder petrol engine good for 82kW/150Nm. All MG3s now have a four-speed Aisin-sourced torque converter automatic transmission.
The MG3 was last updated for the 2018 model year with completely overhauled styling and a new multimedia offering alongside the introduction of the seven-year warranty, although it's still missing today’s expected active safety inclusions like auto emergency braking (AEB).
