Jason Plato and Sam Tordoff take MG’s new diesel MG6 to Fleet World Show

Fleet drivers will have their first opportunity to get behind the wheel of the exciting new MG6 DTi-TECH diesel at the Fleet World Show – and some could be sitting alongside race ace Jason Plato.

The MG KX Momentum Racing star and team mate, Sam Tordoff, will be doing a limited number of ‘hot laps’ at the world-famous Silverstone circuit on Wednesday, April 24.

Plato drove the racing version of the MG6 GT to two victories in the first round of the 2013 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at Brands Hatch. Newcomer Tordoff had his maiden podium place when he clinched third place in the final race at the opening rounds.

MG will take seven of the newly launched diesel models to the show and the new model is bound to attract lots of interest. The MG6 DTi-TECH diesel has already won admirers from business users due to its low BIK figures and class-leading creature comfort features.

The British designed and engineered car is being launched into the business sector offering amazing value for money. The new MG offers a high-spec performance driving experience with the lowest overall running costs in the sector, from just £194 a month +VAT on MG’s business lease.

Distinctive designs of the award-winning MG6 GT five door fastback and Magnette four door sports saloon mean that the MG stands out from the crowd in the company car park and on paper. With BIK from just £59 a month, insurance groups of just 14E and 15E, high standard specification and low servicing and parts costs, they offer the lowest running costs in the sector.

Standard specification on even the entry level S model includes 17” sports alloy wheels, sports seats, power folding mirrors, dual climate control, an electronic hill hold function and one-push start system, one-touch electric front windows and an ICE system including radio, CD, MP3, USB and aux-in capability.

SE models add standard built-in satellite navigation with Trafficmaster, reversing sensors, cruise control, iTPMS tyre monitoring, one-touch electric passenger windows and multi-function steering wheel controls.

Move up to the range topping MG6 GT TSE and it offers all the toys a business user could want with the addition of heated, electric front seats, leather upholstery, 18-inch alloys and a reversing camera. With an electric glass sunroof and front parking sensors added as standard, the Magnette sports saloon has a German options list as standard!

The all-new 1.9 litre DTi-TECH diesel power train was designed specifically for the MG6. The latest stop-start, smart charging and variable-rate turbo charging technology is standard on all models to give MG performance with economy. With 350Nm of torque the MG6 diesels have the highest pulling power per pound of any saloon and hatchback in the UK market.

And the MG driving experience is completed with the MG6 chassis that was designed by engineers in Britain to make the most of British roads.

Richard Bourton, MG’s Business & Used Car Sales Manager, said: “We are delighted to be out in force at the Fleet World Show with the new MG6 DTi-TECH and I’m very confident that the car will be received well.

“It’s a tremendous value-for-money package for fleet and business users plus the fact that the MG is fun to drive and drivers will have the kudos of being behind a car that stands out from the often bland competitors.”

Please note – drives with Jason Plato and Sam Tordoff are by invitation only and have to be arranged in advance with Richard Bourton. Contact:
