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

By:

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.

The 2021 Mazda CX-5 crossover has some priorities out of order; it doles out fine handling while it delivers a skimpy back seat.

Pros
Looks good inside and out
Taut ride and handling
Available turbo power
Decent value in most trims

Cons
Turbo lag
Moderate acceleration in base version
Cramped back seat
Inferior infotainment

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2021, the most notable upgrade made to the CX-5 is its new infotainment system. A 10.3-inch touchscreen now sits atop the dashboard instead of the smaller 7.0-inch display found on previous model years. The updated system features the new Mazda Connect interface, Mazda Connected Services (a Wi-Fi hotspot and access to remote vehicle functions through a smartphone app), and standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Pros
Luxury aura without the luxury price,
engaging driving behavior,
expeditious turbo engine.

Cons
Base engine accelerates leisurely,
competitors have more cargo space,
tows only 2000 pounds.

New infotainment system with a larger screen.Remote monitoring and control through a smartphone app.Top Signature trim gains some new safety features.

PROS
Keen handling and steering make the CX-5 enjoyable to drive
Attractive and upscale cabin for a premium ownership experience
Optional turbocharged engine provides plenty of power
Quiet at highway speeds

CONS
Base engine's lackluster acceleration
Ride is a little firm for the class
Less rear legroom and cargo room than most competitors
