Are you the proud owner of an MG6? If you are, we’re afraid we have some bad news. You see, fiscally speaking, you’ve bought a bit of a pup. Even if it’s relatively new, the chances are it’s worth somewhere in the region of 35p. Sorry about that. But don’t blame us, we didn’t do the research!

You, having bought an MG6 and then read this…

It turns out that the MG6 has been named as the new car that offers the worst value for money. Like we said, don’t blame us for this news. It was CAP on behalf of Auto Express. The price boffins found that within three years it lost three quarters of its price. Ouch.

Even a BTCC tie-in can’t help

This means its value fell from a forecourt price of £18,600 to £4,725. IN THREE YEARS. That’s £13,875 just… gone. You could have bought an E60 BMW M5 for that. Or an S Class Mercedes. Or, you know, anything that’s not an MG6.

But why has it fallen so low? Well, Auto Express have some thoughts: “cheap interior, bland looks, grumbly engines and high running costs”. They didn’t hold back there, did they. But in a marketplace filled with cars trying to outdo one another, anything sub-par is going to fail.

Plato’s old racer. Now worth £8.45

Still, you’re not alone. In second place was the Fiat Qubo, which fell from £15,800 to £4,720, followed by the Fiat 500L, down from £22,135 to £7,375. Both deeply desirable machines, yeah? Still, don’t be too upset. It could be worse. You could have to catch the bus or something. And that’s far worse, because public transport people are weird.
