    Well, as I'm sure you know it won't be long until the new MG6 goes on sale over here.

    Some debate over it's looks, personally I think it looks pretty good at the front... the back I'm not too keen on :p

    Autocar article

    Some more pics

    Word over at MG-Rover.org is that it'll be on the streets by the back end of summer!

    Thoughts?

    I didn't know, and it looks totally unexciting I'm afraid. Like a cross between a Rover 75 and Vauxhall Insignia with some chinese influence that makes it look cheaper than it probably will be.

    What about the engine? I don't know much about them at all.

    Could have been worse I suppose, but it dosent look very nice and that colour is horrid.

    That looks horrid.

    Side profile looks like a Prius and the interior looks like it's been stolen from a 3 Series. But no doubt badly built.

    They're actually meant to be fairly well built, I'll have to see it to believe it though!

    The MG name deserves to be put to rest.

    I agree, to an extent. Unless they come up with something new soon, the MG6 won't be enough!

    I think a remake of the 180 would go down well, the KV6 engine was hella fun to drive and reliable too.

    I think a remake of the 180 would go down as well as a lead balloon.

    Really? Even some of the best reviewers loved it, although it'd need a massive update.
    Tiff Needell reffered to it as the best FWD car he had ever driven, so it can't be that bad :)

    reviews dont sell cars though.

    the 180 was hardly a common car on the road was it.

    MG should be kindly led round the back of the nearest building and shot in the head.

    Been dead in the water (and the public eye) for decades too long now.

    A lead balloon would go down really well, I think he was agreeing with you. :p
