Should you buy an MG HS?

The HS is good family transport. Roomy front and rear, with a decent boot, and a combination of engine, chassis and transmission that will get you where you need to be efficently. There’s little fun to be had here; look elsewhere for dynamic excitement.

The high level of standard equipment means it’s good value against most of the rivals. And don’t underestimate the seven-year warranty, now provided on all new MGs. But if you don’t need so much rear passenger space, and you favour driving pleasure over electronic equipment, the Dacia Duster is in most ways the superior car.
