MG3 is dealer’s fastest selling car

MG’s new MG3 supermini has become the fastest selling car that a widely experienced Midland dealer has ever sold. 

Summit Garage (Dudley) in the heart of the Black Country was established in 1945 and has been closely associated with MG ever since it first started trading.

John Newey, who runs Summit with his brother, Nick, said: “It’s quite astonishing. I’ve taken firm orders for 10 MG3s and I expect to take lots more as people begin to realise just what a great value-formoney package the car is. I’ve had customers trading in Ford Fiesta, Nissan Micra and Vauxhall Corsas and they have all been staggered by the low price and high levels of standard equipment on the MG3.”

Summit Garage, in Himley Road, Lower Gornal, Dudley, is one of 10 MG dealer and service outlets in the Midlands. A total of 13 new MG dealerships have opened across the UK in the past 20 months as the dealer network continues to expand. 

Alongside the MG3 Summit has an MG6 GT DTi-TECH diesel demonstrator and the dealership is also an authorised MG service and repair centre. Summit Garage was started by John and Nick’s grandparents, Jack and Olive Newey, in 1945. John is a huge MG fan and privately owns several classic MGs, including a rare carbon fibre bodied MG SV-R, an MGR V8 and an MG ZTT diesel automatic with 193,000 miles on the clock.

John plans to hit the 200,000 mile milestone in it this year. He said: “MG produced some great cars in the past, but I’m equally excited about the future and selling the new MG3. It’s a superb car and offers unbeatable value for money. “I’ve driven both the MG6 and the MG3 extensively and they are both impressive cars packed with all the sophisticated equipment that you would normally pay extra for on other cars. “The latest MGs have all the hallmarks of earlier MGs and I welcome both current and new MG customers to come and see the latest models – although interestingly the latest MGs are attracting people who have never owned MGs before.” 

In recent months, new MG dealerships have opened in Woking, Gloucester and two in Sheffield. They join the ranks of new MG dealers in Brighton, Derby, Stokeon-Trent, Cambridge, Lincoln, Grimsby, Cwmbran in South Wales and Baldock in Herts.
