The MG HS is the new replacement the GS, it is developed in Longbridge and built in China and boasts a 450 litre boot and room for five adults. Powered by a 1.5 litre petrol, six speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, that produces good power at 160 bhp (0-62 in 9-9 seconds) but the fuel economy is a tad disappointing at 37.2 miles per gallon.  Two trims, Excite and Exclusive both well equipped but the Exclusive has nice touches such as reversing camera, LED headlights and a panoramic glass roof. Prices for Q2 have decreased by up to £100, they remain very good. The manual cars are Nil in Excite and Price reduced from previous quarter price£699 in Exclusive and as an auto Price reduced from previous quarter price£249 and Price reduced from previous quarter price£899 Advance Payment for the two trims.

The HS Plugin Hybrid has joined the Scheme offering 32 miles in electric only drive but at £3395 AP in Excite and £3795 AP in Exclusive it is very expensive and the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a much better value offering.

The popularity of the HS has led to delivery delays, speak to the dealer about this as it may not affect all cars but we have heard six months being mentioned.
