2024 MG 5 review
The MG 5 is Australia’s cheapest sedan – that’s one way of looking at it. The other way is that it’s the most value-packed small sedan on the market.
Cheap, apparently, can have negative connotations, especially when it’s translated to Chinese. But as MG has proved with a number of models in the past, ‘relative’ cheapness is a vital selling point for buyers, and value is an even more attractive consideration.
So, this car offers loads of value for the small amount of money being asked – provided customers don’t expect the absolute latest in active safety technology, which this car doesn’t have. It has some, but not all, of the potentially life-saving features that most modern rivals offer.
Does that matter? And is the car good enough for you to potentially overlook those safety items, which – as we know – can be more annoying than assisting if not calibrated correctly?
This car surprised me in so many ways – read on and you’ll find out why.
Thanks to my friends at Orange MG in NSW for helping out with this test drive.
