First unveiled was the MG3, a B-segment hatchback designed to offer value not just with its price, but also styling and efficiency.

The hatchback bears sporty design with its sportscar inspired hood and broad lower intake. It rolls on 16-inch alloy wheels and pairs it with a leather-style interior and a large 10.25-inch infotainment screen.

It also comes with a wider array of colors beyond the usual boring white and black. The MG3 can be had in St. Moritz Blue, Extreme Speed Red, Morning Yellow, or Blade Silver.

Powering the MG3 is a choice of either a conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) or hybrid electric powertrain. The ICE features a 1.5-liter engine that makes 120-PS and 150-Nm of torque with a choice of manual or automatic transmissions.

The hybrid variant produces significantly more power, as much as 190-PS and 250-Nm of torque. This makes the MG3 the first in its class to come with a hybrid option and all the benefits that come with it. The dedicated hybrid engine uses a range of advanced technologies and an ultra-efficient 3-speed hybrid transmission that intuitively delivering the best combination of electric and petrol for maximum power and efficiency.
