Written by Parkers on

Entry-level MG is a made-over Rover 25. Base model looks good, but lacks go, top-of-range 160 is too expensive. Sporty to drive and lively performance - especially in 160 form - but many of the 25’s shortcomings remain, which no amount of snazzy paint and in-yer-face bodykit can hide. It’s cramped, has a haphazard dash layout and is neither supermini nor small family sized.
