The vehicle is one of the country’s best selling light hatchbacks and comes with a range of state of the art features.
Rear view camera, rear parking sensors and pkv poker LED daytime running lights are among the perks.
‘Thanks to my local pub for my new car,’ Ms Yates wrote on Facebook.
For most of its history MG – also known as Morris Garages – was associated with British open-top roadsters but that changed with the collapse of Rover in 2005, which saw the Chinese state-owned SAIC group take over.
Since then, MG has become synonymous with budget SUVs and hatches made in China – a far cry from its 1924 origins as a sports car badge.
MG last year became a top ten car brand in Australia and in July was the nation’s seventh most popular marque ahead of Subaru and Nissan, Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries data showed.
The MG3 hatch is now the best-selling car in its light car segment.

The car comes in three specifications, the Core priced at $18,990, the Core with navigation at $19,490 and the Excite, which retails for $20,490.
An MG spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia that in becoming the number-one seller in the segment, it has beaten its new vehicle rivals.
‘The continued popularity of the MG3 is testament to how many Australians have found this model to suit their needs both in style and performance,’ he said.
‘Additionally, for peace of mind, the MG comes with a comprehensive seven-year unlimited kilometre warranty and access to more than 100 dealers around Australia and New Zealand.’
