Expert Rating

Summary


The MG HS is a budget mid-size SUV/crossover, which sits above the smaller ZS in the MG range. It was launched in the UK in late 2019.

So far, the MG HS has received better reviews from the UK motoring media than the ZS, although it still ranks 14th out of 18 mid-size family SUVs we have analysed to date. It’s main advantage over rivals is its very low price – the HS is a mid-size SUV for the price of a supermini hatchback from most other brands.

The low price is further enhanaced by decent equipment levels, and a lengthy seven-year new car warranty is also a plus point. However, its quality and driving experience are considered to be quite a way off the levels seen in most rivals.
