After a long absence from the South African, and indeed the international motoring scene, MG has recently made a welcome return. If you were at the Johannesburg International Motor Show last year you would no doubt have spotted the funky little MG 3 city car. The first model to be launched locally however is the 6 in both sedan and hatchback versions and we're one of the first to drive it.

2012 MG 6 Saloon 1.8T: A Fresh Start for MG
We conduct a road test of the new 2012 MG 6 with nothing other than our wits and guile to guide us. MG may be run by the Chinese now, bla bla bla... but all we're interested in is how does the MG 6 saloon stack up as a driving machine. As it turns out, our assessments of the car aren't far off the mark. The gearbox is less than stellar, as are some of the interior trims and fabrics. But overall we're pleasantly surprised by what the MG 6 Saloon has to offer.
► 2012 MG6 1.8 Turbo [CRASH TEST]
The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Although dummy readings were good, there was insufficient pressure in the airbag to prevent the driver's head from making contact, through the fabric of the airbag, with the rim of the steering wheel. The car was penalised for this 'bottoming out' of the airbag. Dummy readings indicated a high load for the driver's left femur, and the steering column adjuster lever was broken during the impact. In the side barrier impact, dummy readings of rib compression indicated marginal protection of the driver's chest. In the side pole impact, protection of the chest and abdomen was adequate. The seat and head restraint provided marginal protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. The MG6 is currently on sale only in the UK. MG showed that a left hand drive car would offer similar levels of adult occupant protection.
