Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The MG HS is a significant step forward for the brand in Australia, and it isn't just about the sharp pricing. It is a compelling competitor in the medium-SUV segment.

Pros
General feeling of quality, fit and finish is excellent
Cabin insulation and execution are well done
Value is unquestioned, including the warranty

Cons
1.5-litre engine is a little small for the medium-SUV segment
There is a slight torque hole off the mark that you do notice
Transmission is occasionally caught in the wrong gear when cruising

Not only does the MG HS offer excellent value for money, it also has a classy interior and punchy performance if you’re prepared to work the engine for it. Although its infotainment system is laggy and its engine rather coarse when pushed, it’s well worth considering.

Pros
Cheap yet well equipped
Plush interior
Good ride and handling balance

Cons
Small boot
Coarse engine
Pricey PCP deals

The MG HS is a practical family car that comes with a decent amount of standard equipment, but alternatives have more powerful engines that are cheaper to run.
The MG HS is the brand’s largest SUV and an alternative to the likes of the Nissan Qashqai and Skoda Karoq. MG might not quite have the same brand kudos as these cars, but it makes a pretty good first impression.
At least you get cruise control and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection as standard, though, but you’ll have to fork out for a top-spec car if you want a reversing camera, LED headlights and a panoramic glass roof.
