As a new car, the MG6 fell vic­tim to a num­ber of is­sues. Rel­a­tively low brand aware­ness, the as­so­ci­a­tion with the de­funct MG Rover name and the fear of the un­known in re­la­tion to the Chi­nese car in­dus­try did it no favours, while a low-pro­file launch, cheap plas­tics and a petrol-only en­gine range also ham­pered its de­sir­abil­ity.

But it’s of­ten the case that a car which makes lim­ited sense when new be­comes a whole dif­fer­ent propo­si­tion as a used pur­chase, and that’s what you get with the MG6. With prices so low for a late model, it’s dif­fi­cult to ig­nore, es­pe­cially when it’s also a thor­oughly de­cent car to drive and one that seems to be prov­ing pretty re­li­able as it ad­vances in age.

It’s a left-field choice but, on the bal­ance of ev­i­dence, not a bad one.
