MG will unveil its new MG3 supermini at an invite only event at MG Birmingham in Longbridge on June 12.
It will then be publicly shown for the first time at the MG Live! event at Silverstone on June 15 and 16.
Guy Jones, sales & marketing director of MG Motor UK, believes the new car will attract a new group of customers to the MG brand for the first time.
He said: “This new MG3 is a great package for the increasing number of European customers looking for a stylish small car, that's affordable and practical to own.
“This is a car that that MG enthusiasts and dealers across Europe have been waiting for, but more significantly it will bring a whole new group of customers to the MG brand for the first time.”
The new model will go on sale in the UK later this year ready for the September plate-change and MG is looking to attract B-segment customers used to personalising their cars.
In addition to a “wide range” of body colours, more customisable options will be available including roof, side and bonnet graphics. Interior trims, wheels, vents, surrounds and mats will all be available in a choice of designs, colours and finishes.
The new model is powered by a 103bhp version of MG’s VTi-TECH petrol engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission.
The MG3 will sit alongside the MG6 in the range and will be available across MG’s network of 29 franchised dealers in the UK.
