MG has announced an initial fleet order from SMA Vehicle Remarketing for 20 of its latest DTi-Tech diesel MG6 GT SE models.
Voted by customers as the winner of Best Handling and sixth overall Best Car to Own in the 2014 Auto Express Driver Power Awards, SMA’s purchases feature the new 1.9 litre DTi-Tec diesel engines.
The new engine delivers 150PS and 350Nm of torque but with improved emissions of only 129g CO2.
The specification of the SE models also includes integrated satellite navigation (with a lifetime subscription to Traffic Master), cruise control, dual-zone climate control and intelligent stop start systems, as well as low-group 14E insurance.
Bob Anderson, Managing Director at SMA Vehicle Remarketing said, “In assessing our options for our fleet, we had a number of attractive options available.
“However, the MG proposition with its distinctive and historic brand is something we knew would create an immediate level of interest with our customers as our field team visited them.
“SMA is a company with a rich and proud heritage, which is on a strong upward growth trajectory; the MG brand is in a similar position with significant growth in its dealer network.
“Going further its value proposition shares much in common with ours, efficient, innovate, distinctive, personal and forward-looking.
“For fleets like us, the latest diesel MG6 delivers a high specification and low running costs with a level of energetic personal service that makes a real difference.
“We are proud to be driving something designed and engineered in Britain.”
Guy Jones, Sales and Marketing Director at MG UK said; “We are very pleased to announce this order for the diesel MG6 GT.
“The latest developments with our diesel MG6 and the launch of our MG3 supermini mean we now have both the product range and a rapidly expanding national dealer network to give fleets a new choice.
“MG6 and MG3 can offer fleet operators a new option for reliable, low running costs and fleet drivers a driving experience and specification currently only available at much higher P11D costs.”
