I picked up the MG HS for our extended test drive and was immediately taken aback by how good it looks. It's got such a great premium look and feel to it, both inside and out.

We have a fairly big and active family: two kids and a dog, with the car constantly full of bikes, boards etc. We were never cramped. The kids loved the little picnic table centre console in the back seat and had a ball using Apple CarPlay.

I must say, however, I did miss some of the grunt I'm used to in my current car but there was more than enough other features to take my mind off it. I didn't know much about the modern MGs and was blown away by the whole package. Value that can't be beaten.

It's definitely the top of our consideration list now.


Pros

> European looks

> So much room

> Surprising amount of technology


Cons

> Down on power from what I'm used to
