It’s only natural that to make money go further, we have to compromise. But if we’re really being honest, compromise sucks. It means giving something up, which is why the all-new MG HS is something of a marvel. This family-size SUV doesn’t compromise - it boasts turbocharged performance and efficiency, sporty good looks, a luxurious interior and a 7-year warranty to back it up. It drives splendidly with the option of a manual or DCT transmission, and comes with keyless entry, a 10.1” touchscreen, leather-style upholstery and cruise control as standard. Excite models add satellite navigation and a reversing camera, while Exclusive models add LED headlights, heated seats, a panoramic sunroof and a powered tailgate. Luxury features, affordable price.
The quality of being understated is one to be admired, and the MG HS achieves the look with aplomb. This is a family-size SUV you can take anywhere. It’s sporty, elegant and classy - the perfect trio for a car expected to do it all.
Powered by a 1.5 turbo petrol engine with 160bhp and 250Nm of torque, the MG HS has plenty of overtaking power. The real-world performance is excellent, as is the ride quality and overall comfort making it a perfect cruiser.
There’s roomy accommodation for five adult passengers and dual ISOFIX points located on both rear outermost seats. The boot has a useful 450-litre load volume and Exclusive models come with a powered tailgate for convenience.
Living with it
Efficiency of 36.2 to 37.7mpg combined in WLTP tests means the MG HS is very affordable to run. You’ll love the 10.1” touchscreen with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, as well as MG Pilot which has no less than 6 driver assistance systems.
