A remarkable 80% jump in sales has seen MG claim the mantle of top performing UK car brand.

New figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders show that have MG bucked the trend of falling new car sales in the UK. The UK new car market fell by over 11% last month - the eight consecutive month new car sales have fallen - but MG, buoyed by the launch of the new ZS compact SUV, saw an 80% rise in sales compared to November 2016.

MG are on course for a record year, and are continuing to grow their dealer network to meet demand.

“The new MG ZS Compact-SUV, with its 7 year warranty and fantastic range of features, has brought customers to our dealership showrooms”, said MG’s Harvey France.

“With the larger MG GS SUV and the Supermini MG3, MG now has an enviable product range, and our latest sales figures prove that.”
