MG MGA 1600, in Fixed Head Coupé and Sports Roadster form, was introduced in July 1959 as replacement for the earlier MGA which was powered by a 1489-cc engine and had been in production for almost four years. The '1600' engine is a four-cylinder, 1588-cc, ohv unit (dimensionally identical to the ohc unit fitted in the 1600 'Twin Cam' model) which develops 79.5 bhp at 5600 rpm and the car features a number of modifications including restyled rear wing plinths and front disc brakes.
MG Magnette Mark III 'Farina' Saloon succeed the Magnette ZB Saloon early in the year. As with the other BMC models in this class the body is styled by Pinin Farina; it is distinguishable mainly by its traditional MG radiator grille. The 1½-litre engine has twin carburettors and develops 66.5 bhp at 5200 rpm.
