The facelifted MG3 has been launched on the China car market. Price starts at 69.700 yuan and ends at 97.700 yuan. Biggest changes are up nose with a slightly redesigned grille, a new bumper, and speedy LED fog lights on each side of the bumper. Sporty alloys are new as well.

Dash got new iPod dock and a USB interface but is otherwise unchanged. Engines are unchanged as well: a 1.3 with 92hp and 118nm and a 1.5 with 109hp and 135nm, both mated to a 5-speed manual or 5-speed automatic. MG says the steering system and suspension have been ‘optimized’ in the facelifted car.
This particular car is a UK Impression special edition, which comes with hip ‘UK’ thingies such as UK Impression stickers and a slightly sexed up interior. Customers can also spec a UK flag decal on the roof.
