Tynan Motors is thrilled to announce the arrival of the completely new, third-generation MG 3 five-door light hatchback in Australia. Built on the innovative Modular Scalable Platform (MSP), the new MG 3 offers a choice of petrol or petrol-electric powertrains and comes in two well-equipped grades: Excite and Essence.

Pricing and Variants

The new MG 3 is competitively priced, offering excellent value for its advanced features and performance. Here’s a breakdown of the pricing for the different variants:

  • MG 3 Excite Petrol: Starting from $23,990 (excluding on-road costs)
  • MG 3 Essence Petrol: Starting from $25,990 (excluding on-road costs)
  • MG 3 Excite Hybrid+: Starting from $27,990 (excluding on-road costs)
  • MG 3 Essence Hybrid+: Starting from $29,990 (excluding on-road costs)

The MG 3 Excite Hybrid+ is positioned to undercut competitors like Toyota’s Yaris Hybrid, which starts at $28,500 plus on-road costs, and is also competitive with the new Suzuki Swift Hybrid, starting at $24,490 drive-away.

Powertrain and Performance

Petrol Variants

The MG 3 petrol variants are powered by an 81kW/142Nm 1.5-litre Otto cycle engine, delivering a smooth and responsive driving experience. The Excite and Essence grades are designed to cater to different needs, providing a balance of performance and efficiency.

Hybrid Variants

The Hybrid+ variants feature a 1.5-litre delayed ignition Atkinson cycle engine combined with an electric motor, producing a combined output of 155kW/250Nm. The petrol engine alone delivers 75kW, while the electric motor contributes 100kW. This hybrid system not only enhances performance but also improves fuel efficiency and reduces emissions.

The electric motor is backed by a separate motor-generator dedicated to harvesting energy into the 1.83kW battery during driving and regenerative braking, ensuring optimal energy usage and sustainability.

Comparisons and Value Proposition

The MG 3’s hybrid variant pricing is notably competitive. The MG 3 Excite Hybrid+ offers better affordability compared to the Toyota Yaris Hybrid, and the MG 3's overall value proposition is strengthened when considering incentives available for battery electric vehicles (BEV) in some parts of Australia. For instance, the GWM Ora BEV starts at around $35,000, but incentives can bring the cost close to that of a top-spec MG 3 hybrid.

Design and Features

The new MG 3 is a completely new model, sharing nothing apart from the name with its popular predecessor. The previous generation MG 3 was priced from $18,990 drive-away in entry Core trim, making the new model's starting price of $23,990 a significant but justifiable premium given the enhanced features and capabilities.

Interior and Technology

Inside, the MG 3 boasts a modern and stylish interior with advanced technology and connectivity features. Standard equipment includes:

  • LED headlights
  • Keyless entry and start
  • Heated side mirrors
  • 9.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Autonomous emergency braking
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Rear parking sensors
  • Lane-keep assist

Exterior Design

The MG 3’s exterior design is both contemporary and aerodynamic, featuring sleek lines and a dynamic stance. The choice of vibrant colors and stylish alloy wheels further enhances its visual appeal.


The third-generation MG 3 sets a new benchmark in the light hatchback segment, offering a perfect blend of performance, efficiency, and advanced features. Whether you opt for the petrol or hybrid variants, the MG 3 promises an enjoyable driving experience with excellent value for money.
