The new MG HS SUV will launch with a £17,995 price tag when deliveries start in November.
That’s roughly the price you’ll pay for an entry-level Juke, while the top-spec MG HS easily undercuts the most expensive version of Nissan’s small crossover. Exceptional value for money for a car that rivals the Nissan Qashqai from the class above.
Standard spec includes 17-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry with push button start, a 10.1-inch colour touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and electric folding and heated door mirrors.
Moving up from the Explore trim to the mid-range Excite adds around £2,500 to the price and a rear parking camera, 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic wipers and sat-nav.
The top-spec Exclusive boasts a choice of two leather interiors, front and rear LED sequential indicators, electric and heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, ambient lighting and a panoramic sunroof.
A six-speed manual gearbox is fitted as standard, with a seven-speed DCT transmission available on Excite and Exclusive models. DCT models also feature a choice of driving modes and an electronic opening tailgate.
All models get an extensive list of safety equipment, including active emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, blind-spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert.
There’s no diesel option, so you’re limited to a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine producing 162hp. Monthly PCP deals are to be announced.
Daniel Gregorious, head of sales & marketing at MG Motor UK said, “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 models 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.”
