THE all-electric MG4 has been crowned UK Car of the Year for 2023, pipping the Dacia Jogger seven-seat MPV to top spot.
The budget Jogger was runner-up, while third place outright went to Toyota's GR86, which claimed the Best Coupe category.
Ultimately, the MG4 won by a considerable margin over its six other rivals to take the title of UK Car of the Year 2023.
"The MG4 proves that electric cars can be affordable, practical and appeal to all areas of the automotive market," said John Challen, director of the UK Car of the Year Awards. "Fully charged, it offers more than enough miles for most journeys, while the design and driving dynamics tick two other important boxes for consumers. A deserved winner for the electric future."
Alisdair Suttie, also a UK Car of the Year Awards director, added: "MG has come up with the perfect car for our times. With plenty of range and quick charging, it takes the chore out of EV ownership and makes it a desirable way to travel. It's simply a fantastic all-round family car."
Receiving the winner's trophy, Guy Pigounakis, MG UK's commercial director, said: "The MG4 has proved to be a hit with both existing and new customers since it arrived in September last year - and it is also hugely encouraging that so many expert reviewers hold the same opinion as well. We'd like to thank everyone at UK Car of the Year for this award - this is a significant achievement for MG."
