I've used a similar lift to work on my own car, but don't have the
dimensions.  The MG fit (just!), but there were many times I would
drive on to discover the tires were only half on the lift. is a picture of
my car sitting on a 4-post lift.  Not visible behind the front plate
is the left side, which was nearly completely on the lift track.

It's close, but doable with the B.
