    Chinese MGs - transmission?

    Post by patpending on Tue Jul 19, 2011 8:10 am

    I had presumed that Chinese MGs were all automatics*. However, the LHD MG6 I drove last year was a manual.

    It appears that the MG3 is available as 1.3 or 1.5 with manual or semi-automatic.

    What about the MG6? do we know how sales are split?

    They also have a Manual MG6.

    There are no figures for the split but I think Auto is way more popular for all models.
    The MG3 auto has no fuel consumption penalty since it is an automated manual so is also reasonably popular, although obviously gear changes are not quite up to western dual clutch auto standards.
