Longbridge, UK, 19 March 2014 – Berkshire based Neil Jackson is the first driving instructor in the UK to offer driving lessons in an MG3 supermini, fitted with He-Man dual controls.
Neil, from Twyford, Berkshire, is a fully qualified driving instructor with many years of experience, having previously trained drivers while working for BSM and the Armed Forces. He first saw the MG3 on the forecourt of his local MG dealership, Bulldog MG, last year and knew straight away he had to have one.
Neil previously offered driving tuition in his 2 year old 1.3 litre Vauxhall Corsa and although the MG3 is a brand new car which comes with a larger 1.5 litre engine, his insurance premium has remained exactly the same, due to the MG3’s ultra low 4E insurance group, strong residuals and low purchase price.
“I have found the all around visibility is extremely good, the comfort of the car is excellent and when you are in the car for ten hours a day, comfort is important! It’s very smooth, especially when driving at low speeds, which is what we are doing most of the time. One of the highlights for me is the incredible reduction in road noise from my previous vehicle. I used to tell clients to find the biting point by listening to the engine, but they can’t because they can’t hear it! They have to do it by the feel of the clutch; it’s a lot better in that sense. I have not had a student yet that didn’t like the car. All of them have enjoyed driving it.”
Neil opted for the top of the range, 3STYLE specification; “It is very well equipped for the money, that’s one of the things that interested me in the first place. When I got into the car, it felt really good, the steering is really positive steering, the features included as standard are incredible; everything you can think of is there - cruise control, parking sensors, Bluetooth, automatic lights and wipers. It’s fantastic value for money. I would recommend the car to customers as their first car, everyone who gets into it loves it. I saw a client last night and when I told him that the MG3 is available from only £8,399, he couldn’t believe it and, having driven it too, wants to order one for himself.”
Like Neil, all driving Instructors in the UK can now take advantage of the exceptional value for money and exceedingly high levels of equipment available on the MG3, as He-Man dual controls can now be fitted to all specifications of the class leading supermini, available on PCP from just £99 a month.
