MG GS SUV (2016 - ) MK1

The MG GS is flawed in pretty much every area; in some cases only slightly, but in some cases, pretty fundamentally. Yes, it’s a good-looking SUV with generous space and decent equipment for an affordable price, but it’s not alone on that score. We’d point you towards one of the GS’s more rounded – if perhaps not as generously equipped – rivals instead.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Wherever you look inside the GS, you’re met with a baffling mixture of positives and negatives. The large slabs of high-gloss piano black panelling on the dashboard look and feel pretty good, but because pretty much every other surface is fashioned from plastics that are hard, shiny and unappealing, the cabin still feels very low-rent indeed. The touch-screen works quite well, and the buttons on the dashboard are big and clearly marked, but there are too many of them and there’s no visual differentiation between the ones that work the air-con and the ones that run the infotainment system. The driving position is widely adjustable and has that commanding view that SUV drivers love, but rear visibility is abysmal due to the thick rear pillars and a rear screen that’s small and steeply angled. Not a terrible performance in this area, then, but there’s certainly a lot of room for improvement.
