MG HS Compact Crossover Is All New, But You Can’t Have It In Western Markets

MG is betting on the new HS to increase their sales in China. Unveiled by SAIC, MG’s parent company, the compact crossover is strictly limited to the Chinese market, for now at least.

Its exterior design was toned down compared to the X-Motion Concept that previewed it earlier this year at the 2018 Beijing Auto Show. The final product actually resembles two other crossovers made by MG: the ZS and GS.

Inside, the new MG HS has seating for five and a lot of premium features, including leather trim, a panoramic sunroof, Bose sound system and ambient lighting with up to 64 colors, in the upper trim levels.

The floating-style infotainment system is touchscreen operated and has a 10.1-inch display, whereas the traditional dials have been replaced by the 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.

A full list of equipment has yet to be detailed, but it seems that clients will get to spec their new MG crossover with a host of driving assistance systems, such as Blind Spot Monitor, Lane Keep Assist, adaptive cruise control and the MG Pilot Driver, a semi-autonomous feature.

Powering the range-topping HS is a turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, rated at 231PS (228hp / 170kW) and 360Nm (266lb-ft) of torque. This version also gets a ‘Super Sport’ driving mode and an all-wheel drive system.
