MG is now one of the UK’s fastest-growing car manufacturers, and it’s a firm that keeps gaining momentum.
This has been helped by a growing number of dealers, meaning you’re never too far from a local MG centre, while its products are also proving seriously impressive. The ZS crossover has really helped to grow this brand, especially with the EV version, but MG’s latest HS is also proving to be a hit too, by offering great value in the mid-size crossover market.
Here we take a look at five of its coolest features…
Large 10.1-inch touchscreen
With smartphones taking over our day-to-day lives, a touchscreen is now a must for many of us in our next car. While it’s important to not use them while on the move, often the larger the screen, the easier they are to see and read without taking your eyes off the road.
The MG HS features one of the largest and clearest in this class – measuring an impressive 10.1 inches. It also sits near the top of the dashboard, which aids visibility further, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring is also included for additional usability.
Sporty leather seats
Sports seats might clash with the idea of a family SUV, but they can really help with improving the driving experience behind the wheel. So, while the MG HS isn’t a sporty crossover, it has a stylish look and really looks the part inside, too – particularly on top-spec Exclusive versions, which come with cool-looking sports seats. Leather upholstery is also included to give it an upmarket feel, too.
While autonomous emergency braking and lane-keep assist come with the majority of new cars, many still don’t come with the likes of blind spot monitoring, or if they do, it’s only available as pricey optional extras.
But with the HS it comes as standard with MG PIlot, which is an impressive suite of driver assistance kit, which helped it to get a superb five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP.
Alongside blind spot monitoring, it also comes with adaptive cruise control, intelligent speed limit assist and traffic jam assist, which is especially useful in traffic.
A three-year warranty is commonplace with most manufacturers, but if you’re looking to keep your car for longer than that, you should look for a longer warranty for extra peace of mind.
It’s one of the best features about the MG HS as it comes with a long seven-year, 80,000-mile warranty – meaning that if you bought one today, it would be covered until 2027, providing you keep it under the mileage limit.
Low starting price
While not so much a feature with the MG HS, its affordable pricing is a key selling point for it, and makes it rather attractive next to the majority of rivals.
Prices start from just £20,995, which gets you a punchy petrol engine and loads of standard kit, and makes the HS a really appealing option.Enquire on a new MG HS
