Underscoring this overwhelming response to the MG brand is a total sales achievement of 5,085 new MG units sold on the brand’s first year of operations (or over 400 units per month) — led by the phenomenal MG ZS crossover, which generated over half of MG Philippines’ total vehicle sales in 2019.
Aside from the ZS crossover SUV, MG Philippines also launched three more all-new vehicles in 2019, namely: the spacious and versatile RX5 SUV; the sporty MG 6 Fastback sedan; and the brand’s latest offering, the MG 5 sedan — a class-leader in its segment that is big in both size and features. MG vehicles continue to grow in popularity among Filipinos because of their high value-for-money proposition, attainable prices, modern driving aids and safety features, all while being backed by a rich British heritage.
These vehicles and their respective model variants are currently available at any of the 24 MG dealerships nationwide. These are MG Alabang, MG Araneta-Cubao, MG BF Parañaque, MG Commonwealth, MG EDSA Centris, MG Makati, MG Marikina, MG Pasig, MG Shaw, MG Quezon Avenue, MG Batangas, MG Cabanatuan, MG Carmona, MG Dasmariñas, MG Lipa, MG Pampanga, MG. Sta. Rosa, MG Cebu-Mandaue, MG Bacolod, MG Iloilo, MG Tacloban, MG Cagayan De Oro, MG Davao, and MG Zamboanga.
The expansion of the MG Philippines nationwide dealership network will likewise continue in 2020, with a minimum of seven new MG dealerships opening in key locations nationwide.
MG Philippines’ main aftersales complements were promptly activated in 2019, and these will continue on in the year ahead, providing owners with a pleasant MG ownership experience. These include a five-year or 100,000km warranty (whichever comes first), and one-year free periodic maintenance service (PMS) for worry-free assurance. Aside from these, MG owners can also download the My MG mobile app (Android, via Google Play) which allows them to easily schedule vehicle servicing appointments, make parts inquiries, and locate MG dealerships near them from the convenience of their smartphones. They can also use the app to book a visit from a Mobile Garage service caravan that provides MG owners with vehicle home service for major technical issues. MG HERO Services, on the other hand, provides 24/7 roadside support through the MG Philippines hotline (+632 5328 4664).
Many of MG Philippines’ well-received marketing campaigns in 2019 will also be rekindled in 2020 such as the MG Live! free concert series, participation in the 2020 Manila International Auto Show (MIAS), and involvement in major sporting events in the UAAP and with popular mixed martial arts entity ONE Championship. Likewise expect MG to be present in various mall roadshows and test drive events all over the country.

Awards, the Best Value for Money Compact Sedan of the Year (MG 6) for the 2019 Auto Focus People’s Choice Awards, and the 2019 Breakout Brand of the Year for the 2019 Top Gear PH Awards.
