I too spotted this new ish of Autocar with a nice bright orange MG6 on the cover.
I note yet again such reviews can be read through tinted and non tinted spectacles.
I note the ref to handling and it states the suspension "... developed from the old Rover 75" "....... make the the MG 6 spirited and willing performer - albiet one with a few rough edges " also ".... the 6s chassis which is quiet and supple yet still controls it body with unexpectedly sporting poise"
No mention of it being best in class or even comparing it to the clear leader in the shape of the new Focus so I dont know where that comparison appears.
The more worrying thing is that "... the interior doesnt stand up well to close inspection...with the plastics of the lower fascia are hard shiny and easily scratched...with a fit and finish thats poorer than is standard in Europe. Nitty gritty considering this isnt a cabin that'd ever get signed off on a Skoda"
I think its a pretty poor review thats bodes badly for how the car will be received by the motoring press.
Their sum up is the worst aspect...
"That could be disappointing if youre getting out of a Skoda Octavia or a Kia Cee'd let along a Ford or Vauxhall - which limits the MGs reach somewhat. However if youre a bargain hunter who likes a lively drive and dont mind giving up a few refinements you could find the MG6 a uniquely appealing car"
Essentially cheaply made and finished car that has been well finished of by MG UK. Wont match a Skoda or Kia for quality but hey its a cheap chinese car so what would you expect.
Except its got an MG badge on it and is being made and designed in England....
