We are most definitely looking forward to this one over here at MotorMartin Towers as we’re big fans of what the new MG are trying to do. You certainly can’t argue with the current ranges’ mixture of value combined with great specifications and then there’s also that iconic octagonal badge as well.
MG Motor UK have therefore confirmed to MotorMartin the following details regarding their all-new GS replacement, the flagship MG HS.
All New MG HS, a quality C-segment SUV designed for quality family moments. All New MG HS offers buyers an exciting and high-quality alternative to the conventional choices with a sporty exterior and a family friendly interior with soft-touch materials used throughout. By combining high quality with keen pricing, All New MG HS creates a new definition of affordable luxury for new car buyers in the UK.
All New MG HS has been designed to look purposeful, sporty and perfectly at home on British and European roads. At the front, the latest iteration of MG’s stellar field grille perfectly frames the largest MG logo yet. At the rear, twin tailpipes and an aluminium lower bumper add a classy and sporty finish.
Inside, soft-touch materials reign supreme as MG’s designers have prioritised comfort and quality to make the cabin a very inviting place. The well-appointed driving position and roomy seats make All New MG HS into a quality space for quality family moments.
Front passengers can enjoy class leading shoulder-, hip- and head-room with soft-touch materials in all the right places. Piano key buttons, turbine design air vents and soft-touch door cards are pleasingly tactile, adding to the sense of comfort and quality inside the car. Rear seat passengers are catered for too with the reclining seats offering bags of space, twin air vents, two USBs and a sleek fold-out arm rest, which cleverly opens to reveal storage space and twin cup holders.
All New MG HS is powered by MG’s latest 162PS turbo petrol engine in all three versions; entry level Explore, mid-level Excite and top level Exclusive. All versions are available with a six-speed manual transmission or with a seven-speed DCT transmission on Excite and Exclusive versions. Exclusive DCT versions also include a steering wheel-mounted ‘Super Sport’ button, which engages the car’s Sport mode and illuminates the interior’s red ambient lighting.
With the MG Pilot suite of high-tech driver aids coming as standard, All New MG HS provides a quality driving experience with measured performance and driver assistance. MG Pilot makes driving a joy with Active Emergency Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist, Intelligent Speed Limit Assist, Intelligent Headlight Control, Traffic Jam Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Detection and Door Opening Warning.
All New MG HS offers affordable luxury across the range with all versions highly specified. The entry level Explore model starts from just £17,995 OTR. Standard features include 17” alloy wheels, keyless entry with push button start, a 10.1” colour touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and electric folding and heated door mirrors.
The mid-level Excite version is available from £20,495 OTR and adds rear parking camera, 18” alloys, rain sensing wipers and sat-nav. Top spec Exclusive is available from £22,995 with a choice of two leather interiors (black or red and black), front and rear LED sequential indicators, electrically adjustable heated sports front seats, dual zone climate control, ambient lighting and a stunning panoramic opening Skyroof. DCT versions also include driving modes including Super Sport and a customisable electronic opening tailgate.
Daniel Gregorious, Head of Sales & Marketing at MG Motor UK commented to MotorMartin recently that, “We’re absolutely delighted to bring All New MG HS to the UK. This car brings a whole new level of quality and refinement to the segment, wrapped-up in a sporty and affordable package. All New MG HS will appeal to families looking for a high-quality alternative to run of the mill SUVs. This car delivers a combination of quality and value that only MG can achieve, and we’re delighted to add it to our growing range.”
On sale now with customer deliveries starting in November, All New MG HS becomes the fourth car in MG’s range alongside the MG3 hatchback, MG ZS compact SUV and the all-electric MG ZS EV. All New MG HS is backed by MG’s famous 7-year warranty, which is now standard across the MG range, highlighting real confidence in the build quality and providing customers with complete peace of mind.
A replacement for the MotorMartin MG GS might just have been found.
