MG 3 Will Cost Less Than Suzuki WagonR: Javed Afridi

Morris Garages (MG) Pakistan is set to take the domestic hatchback market by storm as Javed Afridi – a key stakeholder of the automaker – has teased the price of its upcoming MG 3.

Javed Afridi has been teasing MG3 for years at this point but has never revealed the official launch date for the car.

In his latest Facebook post, Afridi shared a video that teased the exterior of the hatchback. The caption of the teaser stated “Yes. Below Rs. 2 million MG3. In Final Stages.”

From the Facebook post, it is evident that MG 3 will be starting below Rs. 2 million and the hatchback will be launched in Pakistan soon.

Last year in February, Javed Afridi had sought suggestions from hatchback enthusiasts regarding the price of MG 3. Back then, Afridi had initially hinted MG 3’s price to be less than Rs. 2 million.

  • MG3 please dont bother coming to pak !
    1500 cc and 4 speed automatic ? public cant afford to drive this combo. hit some sense

  • Bringing less than 2 million, fully loaded automatic vehicles in Pakistan has now become inevitable. Now the monopoly of these 3 stooges should end

  • Higher cc no. For a hatch back? It will have high registration cost + higher annual token tax. A hatchback in pakistan should be 1000-1200 cc.

    Other than that

    Mg is a big FBR scam in Pakistan. Sooner or later it will be dead here in Pakistan

  • Imported more than 11000 CBUs , created jobs of only dealership staff (not more than 200), under invoiced CBUs to save duties, wonder how much damage this guy caused to Pakistan.

  • Dear Afridi sb

    I want your favour please
    0333 5477076

  • Be Pakistani
    Buy Pakistani product
    Save foreign exchange
    And play role in the development
    Pakistan First is our slogan

  • Pls stop bringing scrab to Pakistan that is no more sellable due to its most recent bitter experience with MG HS and MG ZS which had artificial hype, craze and painful self made long delivery. The upcoming locally manufactured MGs would be the same or even worsen than imported MG HS or MG ZS etc. Before buying any MG please read my message and verify yourself by visiting any of the used MG cars which are already on the road.
    I would like to add one of the most disappointing manufacturing faults that unfortunately has not yet been registered in any of the reviews. One of the serious issue is its wearing out of all 4 braking disks due to poorly designed brake pads. (all four disks get multiple deep grooves/wear outs right from day one). The disks are being eaten fast by pads so sharply and I observed same issue on all 25 MG HS cars driven 200 km to 15000 km and so on. This issue is very much known and reported to MG gaurentors/suppliers and they have to replace these faulty disks along with pads without any further delays and excuses. Why we should pay and suffer due to their manufacturing faults?. I am highlighting this to you all as an user of MG HS and wonder if new customers will have also to face and pay huge cost.

  • Stop playing with public emotions, first Javed Afraid said. That it would be under 8hundred k, then it goes to 9 hundred k and later 1 million. Now it’s Under 2 million? Cut the crab, beating about the bush from day first. Do some other business. Apse na ho paiga bhai
