The MG HS has the most upmarket MG interior to date and it's well equipped

Interior & comfort Rating

4.0 out of 5

The HS has MG's best interior yet, with improved materials and design that move it ever closer to more established rivals. The result is attractive and you'll certainly feel that the HS offers a lot of SUV for the money.

Modern touches like circular outer air vents and a large 10.1-inch infotainment display that's perched on top of the dashboard all lend the HS an upmarket look inside. It's quite minimalist too - there are very few buttons, and even most climate controls need to be turned up and down using the touchscreen display. On its homepage, three colourful tiles provide quick access to the audio, sat-nav and climate controls, but dig deeper and some of the settings are a bit fiddly to find and adjust.

Equipment

Trim levels are called Explore, Excite and Exclusive, and all come well equipped. Even Explore gets the 10.1-inch screen (with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), 17-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, synthetic leather upholstery and folding door mirrors. Excite adds bigger wheels, a rear-view camera, DAB radio and sat nav, while Exclusive brings leather seats, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, LED headlights and a panoramic sunroof.

Options

MG is taking a similar approach to rival Japanese and Korean manufacturers by bundling lots of kit into each trim level, while offering very few optional extras. However, you can add the seven-speed DCT automatic gearbox to Excite and Exclusive trims for around £1,500 and doing so also adds adaptive cruise control and traffic jam assist.
