The SAIC, MG's parent company, is one of the largest automotive company in the world and China's leading auto firm.
The MG3 is a distinctive statement of modern British style designed to target young and style conscious buyers, wanting something that's different from anything else in the market.
"This new MG3 is a great package for the increasing number of European customers looking for a stylish small car, that's affordable and practical to own," said Guy Jones, MG Motor UK's Sales & Marketing Director.
The MG Motor UK is based in Birmingham, along with SAIC Motors European Technical Engineering Centre and they jointly employ 400 people in automotive styling, design, engineering, manufacturing and support services.
