The role of the MG6 Magnette was to begin the process of offering an increased product range to satisfy a wider market need. The styling programme was undertaken in the UK being based on the MG6 GT work extended to include the changes for a saloon derivative. Much of the development work for the Magnette was carry-over from the GT version and therefore UK based.
Launched some four months after the GT derivative, these models together represent the first product step which will be built on in the future with additional engines, including a new technology diesel engine in 2012.
