Tylko rok trwała produkcja modelu PA, ale powstało 1396 roadsterów, 498 tourerów, 28 Coupé i 57 podwozi. Następca, model PB ma większy silnik o mocy 43 KM.

P-Series was developed from the J-Series and have a sturdier chassis, better brakes, three-bearing crankshaft and other refinements. The PB-type Midget is available in Two-seater, Four-seater and Airline Coupé variants and have a 939-cc (60x83 mm) four-cylinder engine, developing 43 bhp at 5500 rpm. Its immediate predecessor, the 1934 PA Midget had a 36-bhp 847-cc (57x83 mm) engine. Both engines had overhead camshaft, twin SU carburettors and four-speed gearbox.

The PB have an increased displacement of 939 cc and a slatted radiator grille instead of plain as on the PA. Some 2500 of the P-Series were produced.
NA Magnette Four-seater is one of several models available in the six-cylinder N-Series. It have a 1286-cc OHC engine with twin SU carburettors, developing 56 bhp at 5500 rpm. and four-speed gearbox.

R Type is an another attempt to capture the glories of racing by the MG Car Company. The R type represents the further experimentation in redesigned chassis and suspension started in the Q type, this time in monoposto or single-seater configuration.

By the middle of 1935, the range was modified slightly with the introduction on the NB. All previous N types were henceforth known as NAs. The NB have exactly the same chassis and running gear as the NA except that the gearbox reverted to the old L type design with closer ratios on 1st and 2nd gears. The NB body now sports a scuttle reduced in height by three quarters of an inch and front-hinged doors with elegant curved door hinges. The other styling change to the NB is the substitution of the ‘lattice grill’ on the radiator, which had been a feature of most MGs up to this time, with a slatted radiator grill.
