MG 3 3-door

29, Nov 2012

Curious how the MG 3 will look as a 3-door hatchback. Would have rendered other angles but I couldn’t find other high-resolution studio shot of any new China-made MGs.

Rendered these with reference to spyshots first seen at

Before you get one, check out the video review here at a new car review site that offers comprehensive virtual car reviews and walk thoughs of all cars available on the market.

Images may not be re-posted without permission. These were featured in Road & Track a month ago. I referred to an illustration in BimmerPost for these renderings.

Inspired by my BMW 3-Series (E30) hatchback renderings, here I imagine the hatchback variant of the Mecedes-Benz 190E (W201). Somehow reminds me of Alfa Romeo Arna, which is not a good thing.

The Tesla Model S was the only vehicle to nab an honor in TIME’s Best Inventions of the Year 2012. This is just the latest in long list of accolades for the Model S. Motor Trend recently called the EV the most important car since the Ford Model T, and Automobile Magazine named the five-door […]
