    Nanjing's first clean-sheet MG gets tested, better to drive than Ford Focus?
    1271250000

    This will get some heads turning: after a drive on challenging Welsh roads, Autocar has written "In its poise and agility I'd even say the MG6 is superior" to the Ford Focus Zetec S. There are other compromises: the interior, the gearchange, the NVH, grunt at high revs. But the first bespoke ...

    Rumormill: Chinese-owned MG planning TF roadster successor
    1266240720

    Although it probably plummeted off your radar around the time "My Humps" and "Don' Cha" were topping the charts, the MG TF remains in production. Well, kind of – the factory was idled last year, but it will restart in April. After this year, however, the owners of MG, China's SAIC, have ...

    Report: MG X-Power revivalist arrested
    1262611860

    Just when there was beginning to be good news associated with MG, tales of woe return. This time it has to do with British entrepreneur Will Riley, who somehow established himself as the force behind the MG X-Power even though MG branding rights had been purchased by China's Nanjing. Riley is in ...

    REPORT: Production lines halted at MG's Longbridge plant. This is not a repeat from 2005.
    1254868140

    It is a travesty that the initials "MG" are coming to be a convenient epithet for the term "woe." The British sportscar maker has had an exceedingly trying history recently, and things haven't got any better with word that its owner, MG Motor UK Ltd. (which is really Nanjing Automobile ...

    The saga that is the collapse of MG Rover and the subsequent four-year government probe into what went wrong has just taken another sordid and oddly-timed twist.

    1246399260

    The final days of MG were disastrous and disastrously expensive. The British government finally has an accounting of what happened, but it only adds to both sides of the disaster: the report took four years and £16 million ($26 million U.S.) for CPA firm BDO Stoy Howard to compile. For now, ...

    Shanghai Preview: New MG6 is... nice
    1239917280

    This is the MG6, and it's a good looking car. As the sporty version of the Roewe 550 (another good looking car), the MG6 gets a tauter nose with new lights, a slightly more upswept swage line, and a fastback rear end. The Roewe 550 signified a break from the heavily Rover-based design still found ...

    What's in a Name? Nanjing removes name from MG division
    1232498340

    Is a British automaker still British if it's foreign owned? This is an increasingly relevant question, as England's biggest car brands have been gobbled up by foreign concerns. Jaguar and Land Rover are owned by India's Tata, Aston Martin by a group of Kuwaiti investors, Bentley is part of the ...

    Roewe 550, 750 arrive in Chile as MGs
    1225044420

    Remember the Roewe 550? Pretty nice-looking ride, especially for a Chinese car, considering some of the freakishly awful stuff that comes out of the country. SAIC apparently realizes that in terms of name recognition, MG > Roewe. Case in point: the introduction of the 550 and 750 sedans in ...

    Following all the plot twists in the ongoing saga of what's become of MG Rover in recent years is more difficult than unravelling the Harry Potter series in a half hour.

    SAIC buys Nanjing, finally gets MG
