    “Our effort to formalize and document the fuel economy figures of our MG vehicles aims to strengthen the already high, inherent value for money offered by our numerous product offerings here at MG Philippines,” Atty. Alberto B. Arcilla, President and CEO of MG Philippines, said.

    We at MG Philippines are proud to offer vehicles that can be considered ‘responsible purchases’ because of their high value for money proposition; and now, with their impressive fuel efficiency ratings confirmed by the AAP, we can add yet another aspect that makes a responsible purchase out of these modern, global MG cars and SUVs.”  

    This fuel-economy run adhered to stringent guidelines watched in-car by the AAP and simulated real-world driving conditions, including routine use of air conditioning, rolling up windows, staying within set speed limits, and having tires inflated to the manufacturer's suggested pressure.

    All traffic laws and regulations were scrupulously observed because the experiment was being conducted on public roads, and no severe "hypermiling" driving practices, including drafting or slipstreaming, were used to increase the fuel efficiency ratings of these MG vehicles. 

    MG Philippines’ vehicle offerings tick all the right boxes for a new car purchase and, with the recent developments in the country regarding fuel prices, the notable fuel efficiency ratings of MG cars and SUVs make them extraordinary choices for one's next new ride.
