MG Philippines Highlights MG HS SUV: MG Philippines has announced the arrival of the first model to headline the brand’s aggressive 2022 product launch calendar – the exciting and dynamic MG HS SUV. The MG HS is the latest global MG model to join MG Philippines’ growing stable of vehicles, offering discerning motorists a modern, feature-laden, safe, and value-rich SUV, steeped in MG’s rich British heritage that spans nearly a century.
The arrival of the MG HS SUV is yet another nod to MG Philippines’ aim to provide top-notch, high quality, attainable mobility solutions for every Filipino, as the brand continues to grow in the local Filipino car market among the general public. With the HS, and every global MG model, MG Philippines demonstrates convergence of cultures through the following: MG’S rich UK lineage, born of innovation; the entrepreneurial spirit and technological and advanced manufacturing acumen of Shanghai-based SAIC Motor; and, of course, the warmth of Filipino service, embodied by local group The Covenant Car Company, Inc., which is the official distributor of MG in the Philippines.
With the new MG HS SUV, Filipinos are invited to aim higher with their choice and selection of automobiles, without having to worry that the car’s sticker price is inflated and out of reach.
“Our mission at MG Philippines is, and has always been, to offer superior quality products; and to serve the evolving mobility needs of the Philippine motoring public. The new MG HS is the embodiment of the high standards in design, quality, technology, safety, and value that we at MG Philippines perpetually aim to uphold as a brand,” says Atty. Alberto B. Arcilla, President and CEO of MG Philippines. “The launch of the MG HS this first quarter of 2022 is likewise significant because this model headlines the arrival of other modern, global, MG vehicles that we intend to launch and reveal later on throughout the year. We at MG Philippines are primed for a very eventful 2022 and begin so with the HS – the vehicle that invites all to aim higher and make the elevated choice when considering a new car purchase.”
The MG HS SUV offers premium features and style, a plush and comfortable ride, and fine driving dynamics for a very attainable price point – all of which, when combined, make the HS a standout in its class.
The HS is powered by a 1.5 inline 4 DOHC turbocharged petrol engine, that is mated to a smooth-shifting 7-speed twin-clutch Sportronic Transmission and produces 169PS and 250NM of torque. It is also equipped with modern driver aids such as a Blind Spot Detection System, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, EPS 3-mode Adjustable Steering, push start-stop functionality, an electronic parking brake with auto hold, and a proprietary “Sport Mode” that allows for crisper steering and throttle response, just to name a few.
Outside, the new 2022 HS is a stunner: swooping body lines and an athletic stance give the HS a sporty profile, while MG’s signature Stardust Grille completes the vehicle’s athletic, yet distinguished countenance. Up front the HS illuminates paths with its 9-Crystal Lighting units and powerful LED headlights, with sequential turn light functionality (also featured on the vehicle’s taillights.) The HS also rolls in style, riding 18-inch Diamond Cut alloy wheels, which are standard across the model range.
Inside the new MG HS SUV is simply delightful. MG Sport Bucket seats with 6-way power control comfortably hug the body in all the right places. The HS’s dashboard is ergonomically designed for easy access, and is highlighted by the vehicle’s 12.3-inch Virtual Driver Information Center and large 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system which is equipped with Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, and multimedia functionality. The HS also features a large panoramic Stargazer Sunroof that offers clear views up above and is perfect for airing out the cabin with fresh air. The HS is also equipped with a unique, adjustable, ambient lighting system that allows users to change the cabin’s interior lighting color to suit their mood.
Meeting the Global High Standards
The MG HS SUV has also received international recognition in markets where MG vehicles are available and has bagged multiple awards over the past couple of years for its numerous product wins, premium features, and excellent value for money. These recognitions include the following: 2021 Compact SUV of the Year, OneShift by Carousell COTY Awards (Singapore); 2021 SUV of the Year, SGCarMart COTY Awards (Singapore); 2020 Car of the Year and Best Subcompact Crossover, Middle East COTY AWARDS (Middle East).

The high-value proposition of each MG vehicle is further supplemented by MG Philippines’ premium aftersales offers and services. This includes a 5-year or 10,000 km warranty (whichever comes first) to set your mind at ease and MG HERO Services which provides 24/7 roadside support throughout the MG Philippines hotline.
