CarShop Norwich has launched an ambitious new venture in to the realm of new car sales after striking a partnership with MG to become Norfolk's only official MG distributor.

Previously known as a used car retailer, CarShop has broadened its offering and has unveiled itself as Norwich's sole MG3 dealer.

The retail store, in Whiffler Road, Norwich, will remain focused on used cars but hopes to attract a fresh audience through the sale of the stylish MG3 supermini.

Starting at £8,399 for the entry-level model, the value supermini has been hailed as a strong contender against the likes of the Skoda Fabia, Citroen DS3 and even the Vauxhall Adam. And because even the basic model comes fully-loaded with a range of features, has a good amount of space and is cheap to insure, the MG3 packs a lot of punch for under ten grand making it ideal for younger drivers to get on the road.

Boasting a huge range of customisation options, MG claims this car will come with 'serious envy', and CarShop is dedicated to making this venture a success.

Alongside providing the people of Norwich with the ability to order, customise and collect their own MG, CarShop's Service Centre has also been authorised as an MG service and repair centre.

CarShop has a display vehicle and a test-drive demonstrator for the MG3 Form Sport, is priced at £9,549, and a showroom display MG6 GT DTi TSE, which costs £18,955.

Whilst the MG3 supermini is set to be the big player, CarShop will also be selling the MG6 for those looking for a larger family-style vehicle.

Michelle Munns, CarShop Norwich operations manager, said: 'Our partnership with MG has provided us with a very exciting opportunity to gauge our ability to retail new cars as well as used.

'We've just recently received our showroom and test-drive models and the buzz around these internally has been pretty fantastic. In fact, we're certain that these will prove a big hit with the people of Norwich.'
