2021 MG HS AWD

2021 MG HS AWD

As expected, MG have indeed expanded their hugely likable MG HS model range with the introduction of two AWD models.  Both the MG HS Excite X and Essence X come with AWD, giving the MG HS another string to its talented bow.

The MG HS AWD variants have the same striking lines and body shape of the FWD models.  The small SUV design is one of the best looking on the market and boasts plenty of chrome trim and a set of stunning diamond-cut 18-inch alloy wheels that look good from any angle.  The Excite and Essence trims have the same level of features that the equivalent FWD versions offer and therefore they both come loaded with plenty of amazing features.  The chrome trimmings continue to the inside of the vehicle, with the interior door handles, air vents and steering wheel highlights all covered in the elegant finish.  An electric tailgate is included as standard on both the Excite and Essence, however the Essence has a full leather interior that looks and feels as good as any interior you would find in vehicles twice its price.  The MG HS AWD Essence X also gains a stunning panoramic sunroof and sports front seats with heating and electronic adjustment .

Your new MG HS AWD small SUV has a loaded cabin, with features like a 10.1-inch colour touchscreen with satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and a six-speaker sound system all as standard.  It will also boast 4 USB charge points, dual-zone climate control, rear air-conditioning vents and a cooling function for your water bottles or other beverages.  On a more practical note, tall adults will even find the rear seat space quite accommodating, and 463 litres of luggage space is available with the split-fold rear seats up; 1454 litres with them folded down flat.

Buy into the snazzy new MG HS AWD SUV package, and you’re getting yourself into a vehicle with a 5-star ANCAP safety rating.  That means you’re riding in a strong small SUV which has features like autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot detection, Intelligent Speed Assist, Intelligent Headlamp Control and Traffic Jam Assist as standard items. The MG HS Essence X also gets a 360-degree camera system for even more peace of mind motoring.

How much power is delivered to your right foot?  The 2021 MG HS AWD models both use the 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 168 kW of power.  This is also matched with a decent 360 Nm of torque over a wide band on the rev counter.  Having a six-speed automatic with dual-clutch technology means that the vehicle has smooth, effortless gear changes whatever your demands.  You also have four different driving modes to select between, including a custom setting that the driver can tweak the way they want the car to feel and respond. The ‘Super Sports’ mode delivers the best power and torque levels for a spirited drive.  The MG HS has nice and light steering, while the visibility all the way around the vehicle is good.  Of course, the 360-degree camera makes life even easier in the Essence models.  Opt for a good quality tyre like Michelin, and the AWD MG HS delivers good road holding and a fun drive.  The power and torque levels are well-linked to the right foot pressure that’s applied on the accelerator and the small SUV offers a fun drive down a back road, where the vehicle is more than capable of scampering passed the legal road limits with ease.  The adaptive cruise control reigns that temptation in nicely.

Buying a new MG HS AWD is definitely worth the extra outlay if you are going to head up to the ski slopes or across a muddy paddock.  We’re only talking an additional $3-5k over the equivalent FWD models.  Now that AWD is available for the MG HS small SUV, it goes head-to-head with vehicles like the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, Hyundai Tucson, Mazda CX-5 and VW Tiguan.
