Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The MG GS is the brand’s first SUV, built to rival the Nissan Qashqai, Renault Kadjar and Vauxhall Mokka X. The MG costs less than all those models and is also a little bigger so, in terms of value for money, it’s off to a flying start.

Pros
Decent looks
Punchy engine
Low price

Cons
Cheap feeling cabin
Firm ride
Small boot

Subaru's popular subcompact crossover gains a host of new features for 2020, starting with an auto stop-start system for models equipped with the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Automatic climate control, Subaru's Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) selectable driving modes, and a new collision-detection automatic door-unlock system are also standard across the range. The mid-range Premium model now can be equipped with a six-way power-adjustable driver's seat and keyless entry with push-button start. Limited models get new LED fog lamps and both the Limited and the Hybrid come with rear-seat USB charging ports.

Pros
Rugged styling,
carlike ride and handling,
available plug-in hybrid.

Cons
Mediocre acceleration,
boring interior appearance,
cramped cargo area.
