Facelift for MG HS


MGHS, 2023, front

THE MG HS large SUV is getting a facelift with changes to the front and rear styling but no alterations to its pricing.

The 2023 MG HS will cost from £23,495 in entry level SE specification with the range topping out from £25,995 for Trophy grade models.

With a sharper, more aggressive appearance the new HS now comes with bi-function LED headlights, a changed grille design and a new front bumper while at the rear it gets a new bumper design, revised dual exhaust outlets and LED taillights.

The new MG HS - MG's flagship SUV - will be offered in SE or Trophy specification, both offering comprehensive equipment levels.

At launch, all models will be powered by a 1.5 litre, turbocharged petrol engine delivering up to 162ps.

A manual gearbox is available as standard, with an optional dual clutch DCT gearbox offered across SE and Trophy specifications.

The new MG HS retains the amount of space and comfort of the previous generation, the interior featuring high-quality, soft touch materials.

The 10.1-inch infotainment system has been upgraded with enhanced hardware, allowing faster and smoother functionality.

SE specification includes bi-function LED headlights with front and rear sequential indicators for the first time - alongside air conditioning, satellite navigation, rear parking camera with sensors, rain sensing wipers, keyless entry and a leather steering wheel as standard.

Trophy specification also includes leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual zone climate control, ambient interior lighting, rear privacy glass and an upgraded 6-speaker audio system.

MG Pilot, the company's comprehensive package of safety equipment, is available across the range as standard - equipping the HS with active emergency braking with pedestrian and bicycle detection, lane keep assist with lane departure warning system, intelligent speed limit assist, blind spot detection, rear cross traffic alert and intelligent high beam assist.

The car is also protected by MG's trademark seven-year/80,000-mile warranty.

"Since launch in 2019, the HS has been a tremendous success with over 36,000 finding homes in the UK," says David Allison, head of product and planning at MG Motor UK.

"It continues to deliver all the benefits of a high quality, comprehensively equipped, large SUV, while undercutting smaller, more modestly equipped options on the market. We believe the latest HS will be even more attractive to customers, especially as we are able to offer it with no increase in price across the range."

The company will continue to offer the current plug-in hybrid MG HS PHEV model alongside the new 2023 HS petrol.
