Car Review - MG HS 1.5 Standard (A)
MG might have had a tumultuous past, but its well-heeled HS has the ability to take the more established SUV competitors head on.
Unbeatable Value for Money
Did not want to write a review earlier because did not think a test drive would be sufficient to provide a "Proper" Review. Now that I have collected and driven around a little but more, i feel i am in a better position to write a short review. By the way I am coming from an Infiniti Q30 1.5T (diesel). The MG HS gave a nicer overall driving experience than the Q30. Engine performance was definitely better and definitely more comfortable andof course spacious. The Q30 was able to handle better since it is lower and had the excellent MB chasis/suspension. But i never expected to be able to drive the HS in the same was as the Q30 anyway. Stock sound system is decent too. By now most of you already know the HS has plenty of features so i won't go into that much more here. So far i did not experience any of that alleged clunky gear box at low speeds (maybe i am lucky?). Thoroughly enjoyed driving the car although need some getting used to the significant increase in size. As per my title, dollar for dollar, I don't think any car in the market can give you as much bang foryour buck. Yes the price has risen recently but that's due to rising COE, many other car prices are also increasing. Reliability is of course a question mark but not much of a concern for me. They may be new in Singapore, but not new elsewhere so i am ok with that. So i am giving it 4 stars with some benefit of doubt thrown in. By the way other established brands also have problems with even new cars.

The Many Goodness of a MG SUV.
Saw this at Motor Show and finally had time to go take a closer look at the showroom. First looks is impressive, though is MIC or Made In China, thus bearing the MG brand for its prestige. Headlights and Tail lights are full LED and waving signal lights at both similar to Audi though headlights circular LED looks from Hyundai... Interior is a mix and match from various brands, like aircon vents from Mercedes, Gearstick from BMW (only 7-Speeds than the real 8-speed), etc...Etc..Thus giving you the conti feel. The screen was intuitive and responsive where comes with many features where you can configure the car, like an unusual tailgate height which is done from button and hold to lock height but this MG can do from its console. Other than that, many other features can be preferred from the comfort of the driver seat. Noticed that opening and closing of tailgate takes a "While" To react. Engine start is quiet and moving off is adequate too. At low speeds, gear changes seems cluttered in normal mode where at sports mode (changed in console), slightly better but have some lag, whereas in super sports mode (button pressed on steering like a ferrari), the engaging part is when you revved it and the cluttering gear changes with lag are somehow gone which deviates from normal usage. Overall, its a reasonably priced conti SUV at its entry level for this price tag but the reliability yet to be proven.

Interesting Option for bargain hunters
Read a fair bit online about the HS but what caught my eye was the promotional price of $99,888. Decided to head down to their showroom to check it out and go for a test drive. My current ride is also coming to 5 years and thought that this might be a feasible option. The MG dealership is one of the brands under the Trans Eurokars group but currently seems like a poor sibling gauging by the investment into the showroom premises. However, initial impressions of the HS was good based on its design and presence especially in the body colour of white or red. It is a fairly large SUV akin to a GLC or CX-5 where the designers have taken inspiration from. The good impression continues on inside the spacious cabin with its large 10.1" Infotainment screen which was fairly responsive, modern dashboard layout with Merc like turbine air vents and comfy leatherette seats. The faux leather feels more durable rather than luxurious.There are lots of soft touch surfaces in the cabin but the quality of materials are definitely a notch below the latest offerings from the Japanese like the CX-5 or even the Subaru Forester.The 2L entry level spec Forester is only 5k more expensive mind you. The switch gear also do not have a precise clicky feel to them which makes them feel abit filmsy and cheap. The doors don't really have a reassuring thunk when you close them but neither do they feel insubstantial. It's no VW but definitely better than some Jap makes. The electric tailgate, large 7" Driver's multi function screen and hydraulic struts for the bonnet are features you don't usually see at this price point. The test drive route was fairly short but you'll notice the 1.5t engine is quite torquey which has no issues hauling its over 1.5 ton body. Steering feel is numb but this is no sports car as well. You do feel the heft of the vehicle when on the move though. The 7 speed dct gearbox isn't lightning fast like a dsg but mostly works well with the 1.5t engine. Overall I do think this is a worthy entrant into the competitive SUV market but I think the price still needs to be lowered further as it is still too close to established makes and the warranty could also be longer than the standard 3 years to give buyers a better peace of mind venturing into a relatively unknown brand and the stigma of being made in China.

Like driving a diesel Van
The MG HS has very much engine vibration that can be felt from the driving wheel and also at the accelerator padel. Never expect such poor driving feel from a new MG car. Feel like driving a diesel, Van.
