    Sometimes small changes can make big differences, and MG 3 is an example as far as the aesthetics are concerned. The smallest model featuring the British brand-now part of the Chinese company SAIC, one of the four largest automakers that country, at least in Peru, has received own half of life with a new image of the present generation, which has nearly four years since it was launched to the international market.
    The version shown here is the most equipped, called Sport, and clearly the name does it justice.
    Renovated MG 3 introduces a new front bumper, round fog lamps replacing other L-shaped LED. Also the air inlet in the central part of the bumper is a bit more stylish, while maintaining the trapezoidal form as before, which gives it a good dose of aggression. The final touch in the front is the front grill, which receives a new frame, also more stylized.
    Laterally there are no major changes except for the introduction of two skirts under the doors, at least in the Sport version, making it shorter and sporty watch.
    Viewed from behind, you enter a spoiler on the windshield and squared exhaust terminal, both only available with the Sport details. The center trim the rear bumper has also been modified and now looks like a sporty aerodynamic diffuser, typical of race cars. An additional touch of style is provided by 16-inch rims, which are standard only with the version we tested.
    Under the metal
    The only engine available to MG 3 is composed of an impeller of 1.5 liters, normally aspirated, which develops up to 107 hp. Then the gearbox only option is selected as the mechanical, five-speed, which distributes the power to the front wheels. The McPherson suspension with disc brakes
    for the front and rigid axle type with drums for the rear.
    Sportsmanship in the new MG 3 Sport ends on the handle of the door. Its very good appearance is far from the small missile that appears. All mechanical part has remained the utility vehicle is.
    Anyway, the drive is a fairly self flexible response in the low speed range, which contributes to its short list of changes.However, it suffers quite high in the rev range, and can barely reach the top of the tachometer. Above 4000 rpm where peak torque ends, the engine runs out of breath and instead a lot of noise and vibration is obtained but not much progress. On the plus side is the suspension, which has a good set-oriented but does not sacrifice comfort at all in the performance curve. That makes the MG 3 is a fun car, which is not too common in its category. While low-profile tires for 16 inch rims provide a firmer ride also, do not play against comfort, as usually happens.
    Braking is another interesting point, since, although the MG 3 carries the rear axle drums, has a stable and precise arrest.
    Good orientation
    The interior is youthful body line. Elements of colors, buttons that look like the classic iPod and fluid design, with rounded corners in their controls, such as air conditioning, provide that orientation toward the young.
    The MG 3 has a wheelbase slightly higher than the category, but that does not translate at all in more interior space, the front row of seats has good space, while the rear area of ​​the trunk and are limited but satisfactory, given the size and category.
    The front seats offer good comfort level and provide an interesting side support. The driving position also offers a complete system, although the wheel can only be accommodated in height and that sacrifices some perfect driving position.
    The interior finishes are mostly hard plastic, which does not give the best sense of quality. However, they are in line with its price and is not seen as an austere interior.
    The Sport version also has a full range of comfort, it is also designed to meet young people, as their sound system with six speakers with auxiliary connectivity, USB and MP3 CD reading.
    To be honest, in the category of low-cost super mini, the MG 3 proves without doubt one of the most complete equipment, with the additional that is the most striking. For $ 15,990, it competes directly with the Renault Sandero and, although they have similar characteristics, the MG 3 has the advantage style. It is a car that dares to come out of the mold and that's always welcome.

    Nice review Smile

    Above 4000 rpm where peak torque ends, the engine runs out of breath
    So it's fitted with a low revving high torque engine... Maybe they tested it at altitude?

    Interesting graphics, not quite my idea of Iran, but maybe it's not supposed to look Iranian...

    Are the MG90 octagonal English roses in UK colours going to be popular in Iran?
