ROVER and MG, two renowned British marques with 180 years of combined motoring heritage between them, are set to make a return to Malaysia after an absence of six years. 

Brooklands Motors Sdn Bhd said in a statement that it had been appointed the sole importer and distributor for Rover and MG passenger cars in Malaysia by Britain-based MG Rover Group.

MG Rover Group business development manager for international markets, Russ Thomas, said the company was very pleased to be back in Malaysia.  

“We are confident both our marques will once again be household names in Malaysia,” he said.  

Brooklands Motors spokesman Muhammad Fadhil Ahmad said Rover, which celebrated its 100th anniversary this year, would market the 75 series locally, and MG, in its 80th year, the MG ZT sports saloon and MG TF, Britain's best selling sports car.  

“Rover and MG represent true luxury and classic British styling,” Fadhil added. 

He said Brooklands Motors was confident of a positive response and was looking forward to offering more choices to Malaysians when it came to purchasing a new car.
