The vehicle is one of the best-selling light hatchbacks in the country and comes with a range of state-of-the-art features.
Rear view camera, rear parking sensors and LED daytime running lights are among the perks.
Ms Yates wrote on Facebook: ‘Thank you to my local pub for my new car.
For most of its history MG – also known as Morris Garage – was associated with British open-top roadsters, but that changed in 2005 with the collapse of Rover, which took over the Chinese state-owned SAIC Group. Got it.
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 became the top ten car brand in Australia last year and in July was the seventh most popular brand in the country ahead of Subaru and Nissan, data from the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries 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, with Core Navigation for $19,490, and the Excite, which retails for $20,490.
An MG spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia that it has outperformed its new vehicle rivals by becoming the number one seller in the segment.
“The continued popularity of the MG3 is a testament to how many Australians have found this model to suit their needs in both styling and performance,” he said.
‘Moreover, for peace of mind the MG comes with a seven-year unlimited kilometer warranty and access to over 100 dealers across Australia and New Zealand.’
