The HS is definitely a step above the last MG SUV I tested, the smaller ZS. This HS is bigger and feels much more finished and refined than its smaller sister. It’s not particularly sleek or sporty but fits well into the boxy mid-size SUV typical shape that is reassuringly familiar. One look at it and you know that it’s going to work for your family and won’t date quickly either.
The interior boasts a clean, stylish design that makes you feel good while driving. The finishes aren’t luxury but seem high quality and it doesn’t look cheap at all (like the ZS can). The faux-leather seats still look and feel good, the steering wheel is leather and has a flat-ish bottom which always feels more premium and the MG badge certainly helps.
There are brushed metal accents throughout, and both round and rectangular air vents which lend a stylish edge. The centre console area is well designed with a simple, sleek finish and it’s all quite functional.
