    Is that size (Golf II bounce Cheers) also about the same as a ZR?

    I always found the ZR to be just the right size 99% of the time.
    pretty certain the zr is within a couple of centimeters of the 3.!!!
    it's spot on for me as well. hopefully the boot will be as close in size as the zr/200/25 was.it was pretty much the biggest in its class.

    Lets hope the 6 is a success over here and the wait for the 3 will be that bit quicker-the dealers are desperate for the 3.

    It's the new disguise, let's hope that they clean it up a bit before 20th December!

    I suspect it is because they think it will sell better as seen above.

    Maybe they need to change it for the UK market but I'm not convinced, maybe the more agressive looks should be an option?

    Agreed, now we just need to see some fitted with number plates and we will know how they will look for real.

    Mind you, here in Quebec the cars don't have any number plates on the front so would look just like those photos!

    If you're in Quebec can I borrow your ZS? Surprised

    The 3 is really growing on me, I really want to see some nice sharp press pics and I hope we get a 3 door for the UK market.

    Ahh, you just have to ask Laughing

    "SAIC Motor" I reckon, you can also see it on the back of the yellow one in image 3 but using the normal font.

    To me, the styling makes it a good competitor for the Ford Fiesta, if it is competetive in other ways then it could sell very well. I just hope that it is an MG when you drive it!

    Is it just me or does the rear window seem a bit small considering the size of the glass area as a whole ?

    yes, it's sort of "blacked out" by the look of it.

    Will this make the Golf look like a car with great three-quarter vision? Laughing

    Not bad at all Very Happy

    The crease/indent at the bottom of the MG3 doors should fade out to the rear, you have a sharp line at the rear end.

    Thumbs Up

    Not sure about the three door, doesn't look much different to the 5 door to me, maybe you should extend the front doors a little more?
