It's a common dilemma, when you can't make up your mind between a beautifully crafted Honda or a chinese MG, we've all been there.

I find it astonishing, but telling, that Honda have allowed this.

I've long wondered how Cheshire Oaks covered its costs on Honda business - the place is always deserted.  I guess I have my answer now.

For Holdcroft, MG seems like the franchise dealer groups take when they can't attract anyone else.

It's getting more common. Our local Mitsubishi dealer sells MGs now. Across the road, a firm call Bentleys have a Toyota franchise and a Citroen franchise literally next door to each other.

Just wondering if some of these firms want to get on board the EV bandwagon? Honda only have an 80 mile EV so adding MG with EVs capable of over 200 miles might make sense.

I have been looking at replacing my Honda with an MG5. EV.

They seem to be considered good value.

Hendy in Crawley dropped Mazda and added MG alongside its Ford showroom.
Hendy Ford in Tonbridge have now also taken on Honda.
Yeomans Peugeot in Eastbourne took on Honda (but still trading the Honda side under the Collins Honda name).

With Mitsubishi exiting the market I think some more dealers will be looking to take on MG (or SSangyong, which maybe a better fit with the Mitsubishi customer base).

Only become concerned when your local garage adds Great Wall pickups on the forcourt.....
