MG unveils new GS SUV
The Qashqai-sized GS is the first SUV that MG has ever produced, and top-spec versions will have the option of a DCT automatic gearbox - another first for the reborn company
As yet, precious few details about the car have been revealed, but the company has said that the GS will come with a choice of three trim levels and a ‘sporty’ turbocharged 1.5-litre petrol engine. Top-spec versions will also have the option of a dual-clutch automatic gearbox – the first time the reborn company has offered such a transmission – in place of the standard manual transmission.
Likewise, MG is yet to confirm how much the car will cost, beyond saying that the prices – which are to be announced in June – will be ‘affordable’ and will reflect the ‘family pricing strategy’.
The new GS will be sold alongside the MG3 supermini and MG6 small hatchback, which cost from around £8000 and £14,000, respectively. With that in mind, we expect the GS to cost from around £17,000, which will undercut similarly sized rivals.
