It’s always exciting buying a new car. If you’re thinking of investing in a new motor this year there are so many different models to choose from. Take a look at the new MG range and compact SUVs that offer great value for money. There’s an exciting range varying from:-

  • Hatchbacks
  • Cabriolets
  • Convertibles
  • Saloons
  • Estates
  • Coupes
  • SUVs

The new 2018 MG GS 1.5, runs on petrol and is available with automatic or manual gears.

Another motor to look out for is the Audi A6 Avant 2.0, also with five doors. With fantastic features such as leather seats, Bluetooth, DAB radio, 20” alloys and air conditioning, it’s the ideal family car.

For those drivers who like high quality motors, nothing can beat a used BMW 3 series M Sport 2.0 on diesel and having manual transmission, check out a hatchback or a saloon. Look cool this year driving a BMW that’s affordable, comfortable and certainly stands out.

Something a bit different

For fun on the road and reliability, take a look at a used Volkswagen Beetle 2.0 TDI Sport. This little number is nifty, easy on the fuel and looks fabulous.

The Vauxhall Astra 1.4 is always a very reliable motor while the small, economical Fiat 500 1.2 is perfect as a first car. Newcastle drivers will love this little run-around to get in and out of the city quickly, nipping through the old streets of town.

Whenever you’re in the market to buy a new or used car this year, do a little research beforehand. Have a test drive of the car you fancy and read up on the mechanics of it. According to the What Car? The Seat Leon is one of the best cars on the market today. A used family hatchback can be bought fairly cheaply with an average mileage. Some of the other most popular used cars are:-

  • Hyundai i10
  • Ford Fiesta
  • BMW Series 3
  • BMW Series 5
  • Nissan Qashqai

The list goes on and on.


British through and through, MG is back. There’s an amazing new range of MG vehicles that are designed and engineered in Birmingham. These include the MG GS, MG ZS and the MG3. Henson Motor Group are now partnering with MG and offer plenty of new and used MG motors. So, for those who live in Newcastle, pay a visit to the showrooms soon to see just what is available for 2018.
