MG Review

MG has launched the new HS model in one of the busiest parts of the Australian new car market. Competing with big-name players, the all-new MG HS model will need to offer more than just good value for buyers to consider it. So, how does it stack up?

If you plugged a computer into Australia’s car market and had it design a car, I’m fairly sure it would come up with something like the MG HS.

Does it compete in one of the hottest-selling segments in Australia? Yep, it’s a mid-size SUV. Does it compete on price? Yep, it’s impressively cheap when compared to segment favourites. Is it well specified? Yep, it ticks pretty much every box there is to tick when it comes to gear. Does it look good? Yep, it borrows key styling elements from successful rivals.

Now the tricky one: Is there more to the story? Yep, turns out there is.

See, while MG has made impressive progress with its colour-by-numbers approach to car design, selling increasingly large numbers of its MG3 hatch and ZS small SUV, it’s still had a lot of catching up to do to be considered serious competition for Australian consumers.

So, should you be wooed by the HS SUV? Does it represent true progress for a fledging competitor brand? We went to its Australian launch to find out.

This mid-size SUV is incredibly cheap for the segment.

MG has the HS stickered with drive-away prices of $30,990 for the entry-level Vibe or $34,490 for the top-spec (for now) Excite.

There’s not much between them, and generally the specification ticks off almost every box on our checklist.

Both specs get the impressive 10.1-inch touchscreen and semi-digital dash cluster which looks genuinely impressive, although you can tell where the corners have been cut. The processor for the multimedia software is painfully slow, and the screen quality is average, presenting with both glare and ghosting. The Excite gets built-in nav, but you won’t miss it. It’s extremely slow.

Both specs also get the faux leather trim everywhere, digital radio, LED DRLs, reversing camera with guiding lines, and the full safety suite (skip down to safety to see what that’s all about).

All of that for the price of a base model RAV4, Sportage, or Hyundai Tucson is undeniably good value, no matter which way you cut it.

The Excite only adds LED headlights, 1-inch larger alloy wheels (18-inch), a sport drive mode, the electric tailgate, auto wipers, the laggy nav system, and an ambient lighting package. Nothing necessary there, but the small jump in price doesn’t break the value equation either.

There’s lots to like about the MG ZS, but the weight of the MG badge weighs heavy on it.

MG ZS road test:

Full specifications:

Welcome to this review of the MG ZS. The British brands latest small Crossover the ZS. This crossover offers a huge amount of car for the money. With a class leading boot and rear space this is an extremely practical car for its size.
Powered by a 1.5 litre petrol engine, the same as what you get in the MG 3, it feels more suited to the ZS than the nippy hatchback. The 1.5 is only available with a 5-speed manual gearbox.
There is also a 1.0 litre Turbo charged engine available with an Automatic available too.

Waiting to find out the MG Hector price and what it is like? Well, we were too, and while we will update you with the price after the Hector launch, we can tell you what it’s like on the road. Gavin D’Souza drives the 1.5 L turbo petrol mild Hybrid and the 2.0 L diesel to find out whether the MG Hector can live up to the hype.

The MG ZS is probably one of the hippest underrated subcompact crossovers in the Philippines, considering its affordable price tag and well-executed design. Priced below the P1 million-peso mark, the Chinese subcompact crossover squeezes itself in the tightly-competed segment with comfortable cabin surrounded by six airbags.

The SUV body shape might not be what comes to mind when you think about MG, with any mention of the iconic British badge usually sparking thoughts of classic compact roadsters and leafy country roads.

Now, though, the storied brand has been brought screaming into the 21st century with new SUV hopefuls like the mid-sized GS and the small ZS.

Here, Adam takes a look at the GS and asks the question, should today’s buyers consider this family car offering?

MG is coming soon to India, in its about 10 decades of existence MG, for the first time, is entering India officially, all thanks to SAIC that has revived the brand. I recently got the opportunity to visit SAIC’s R&D centre and facilities and tested four of their cars to see how capable they are. And let me tell you that MG and Roewee, two brands under SAIC, make some fantastic cars be it in terms of quality or safety. And if they somehow manage to bring the same level of quality here in India, they can surely attract quite a few eyeballs.

Think of the MG ZS, and there is a good chance you’ll think of the performance saloon made in the noughties, which was available with a V6 engine. Well, MG has brought out a new model, although I don’t think it’s the car you’ll be expecting.

That’s because it’s now turned in to a practical, cheap, family SUV, but is it a car worth having? I tested it recently to find out.

The model tested here is the mid-range ‘Excite’ trim level, meaning you features such as an 8″ touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, DAB radio, air conditioning, cruise control, automatic headlights, LED daytime running lights, and Bluetooth. It’s priced from £13,995, and is fitted with a naturally aspirated 1.5 litre petrol engine, which feeds power to the front wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox.

Glenda McKay reviews the 2001 MG Rover ZS and compares it’s performance, handling and style to it’s predecessor the Rover 400.

All-new ZS proves Chinese-built cars are getting better.

The 2018 MG GS is MG’s first SUV. Considering MG used to make convertible, rear-wheel drive sports cars, V8 saloons and the occasional hot hatch, the modern MG is a very different company, but without SUVs the company won’t survive. So what’s the GS like?

The MG ZS is probably the strongest all-round package MG has offered in recent years, and makes for a temptingly good-value option in the increasingly packed compact SUV class. It comfortably undercuts the similarly sized Nissan Juke and offers a good deal more practicality to boot, but it isn’t without flaws. While comfortable when being driven gently, the MG is out of its depth on a challenging road and doesn’t shine for performance, economy or safety. It looks the part, though and a seven-year warranty should make ownership a trouble-free experience.

The MG ZS our first drive and review of the 1.5 petrol manual exclusive edition, soft touch material, stitched leather options and lots of gloss. Packed with plenty of kit, a 7 year warranty and a price much cheaper than its rivals, MG have got a winner when it comes to this cross over.

Is the MG 3 just another cheap, Chinese import, or does it actually have something to offer the British motorist? We drove this one over 800 miles to find out.

The car is an MG3 3Form Sport, with an on the road price of £10,250. Engineered in the UK, but built in China, is the result another City Rover of disappointment or a genuine bargain buy?

As usual, no budget, some ropey kit and editing and a presenter who is more Brummie than the car itself. Filmed in the style of old Top Gear, but with better scenery and poorer camera work.

As a brand, MG seems to come and go in the automotive industry. For 2017 though, MG is back with a completely new car, the MG GS SUV.

Tasked with challenging the likes of the Nissan Qashqai, SEAT Ateca and Renault Kadjar, the MG GS claims to combine SUV styling, practicality and affordability in one package.

But the crossover SUV market has come a long way in the last five years or so. So is the new 2017 MG GS up to the task?

We take the new 2017 MG GS out for a spin to see what it can do.

In this review, we take an in-depth look at the interior of the MG GS including its boot size, dashboard and back seats. We then run through performance, price and finish up with the all-important verdict – is the MG GS a good car?
