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 Q4 have increased by up to £200 but they remain very good. The manual cars are Nil in Excite and £999 in Exclusive and as an auto £399 and £1199 Advance Payment for the two trims.

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 hears six months being mentioned.
