    collected my MG HS Exclusive auto  today can’t stop smiling, dealer told me in the South East, he didn’t know about other regions) no newly ordered Autos until November earliest then only a trickle he said they have had over 40 orders placed and MG have told them to try to have customer take the ZS EV instead, he also said that they had been taken by surprise with all the interest in all MG models.

    Hi all who really cares, yes it’s a bit of a laugh but we are taking about large pieces of metal, very expensive large pieces of metal in fact, so if you happen to choose a vehicle which has more going for it than a so called ‘premium’  brand (by the way who says that this vehicle or that vehicle is ‘premium’ anyway, probably the manufacturers and high paid car reviewers that think 300 BHP is normal and any car with less is just for the ‘ unwashed’ (just take a look at AUTO MONDAL the only car programme on TV at this time, Top Gear is not a real car review show more of a fun feast for the presenters, don’t get me wrong I love it too but will not help me choose my next Motability vehicle, they are all geared up, Sorry no pun intended, to showcase high end high performance vehicles, nothing wrong with that but not a great help to you when you are looking for a family SUV or hatchback)  who are invited by these companies on corporate all paid for jollies, normanly in some hot and scenic overseas holiday resort. who by the way nearly always feature the range topping all singing all dancing edition of the line up not the run of the mill one we would be looking for, most of these car reviewers always say ‘ this is the top of the range model, lower trim levels don’t get this or that’) I would read these, then read or watch real owners reviews to get real world review, this is where you get the true picture.  Am I wrong or just stating the facts anyway a good subject to discussion.

    hi Mike I maybe wrong but I think ismart is what is called MGpilot, all the driving aids blind spot warning, front camera sensors speed and traffic sign recognition ect. ect. As for the front sensors Motability will most likely agree to this if fitted by the supplying dealer but this will be at your cost about £250-£350 and you will not get anything back when returning your vehicle, and you can’t really remove them, just had a thought though, I did not have rear sensors fitted to the GLA only the camera so I fitted a number plate holder which also had included and fitted to it sensors for reversing I wonder if they would work as front sensors if fitted to the front number plate anyone on here tried that? a cheap fix if it works and easily removed, would need a way to turn them on but cannot be that difficult for someone with auto electric knowledge. but really how often would you need them anyway

    Hi all,

    yep photos over the weekend to come, pearl white red/black leather, I was going to have black and red/black but having see a black one in the flesh I decided to go for white and my GLA is black and has been cleaned three time a week, every week, to keep it tidy or it can look like a shed, I agree it is very low, either I’ve got taller, or as I have the drivers seat fully raised I find it hard to get in and out without banging my head or catching my legs under the steering wheel, not really a compact SUV but more of a high riding hatchback.

    when it’s clean it does look the part but that is only skin deep too many compromises to call this ‘premium’ really only wanted the badge!! should have listened to my wife who disliked it from the start and said I should have extended my lease on my Qashqai Tekna which was a hard act to follow, funny enough that was pearl white too, strange how MG did not include a bright silver like the Asian models and also the all digital dashboard must be something to do with the EU laws maybe

    test drove a blue HS andthe dealership had a red one  but took a punt and ordered a white and when it arrived at the dealership the sales manager phoned me to say it had arrived 6 week early, he said that it looked stunning can’t wait till Thursday

    oh yes tilts and slides to the middle of the roof then you have a fixed glass panel with an electric interior full sun blind, also if you hold the unlock button on the key fob all the windows and roof opens and again when you press and hold lock the windows close and so does the roof (just like a top end Mercedes) also a quick note check out the switch gear very German like.

    Hi Mike,

    I’m picking my MG HS EXCLUSIVE auto up on Thursday having had my Mercedes GLA for 16 months, need an automatic now, and truly I cannot wait, the GLA has zero or it seems like it, extras  nice wheels, led lights and gloss black trim that’s about it I even had to purchase a  sat nav SD card as it did not come with sat nav!.

    the fact it was a Mercedes swayed me to have it but I will never do it again just have because of the badge,  that really is a mugs game the MG HS does everything I will ever want didn’t want to give it up after a very long test drive, been a Motability customer for over 25 years and this is the first vehicle with an opening skyroof.

    but it is up to you nobody has the right to tell you yes or no but as always good luck

    Robert, go elsewhere, the dealership clearly has a poor Motability team.

    loads of other dealers to choose from but in this case I would name and shame as well

    Hi all, 29 days from order to collection,  not from dealership stock!  the quickest turn round I’ve ever had on all 19 Motability vehicles over the years.

    totally agree who else offers a vehicle with this spec. and this price SAIC cannot be making much on each HS sold in the UK , but very good news for us, a vehicle that has squeezed under the radar.

    if you can live without a so called ‘premium’ badge and you need an SUV ……………..well need I say more

    yes Susan you are quite right there are more goodies with the Exclusive which either makes the Excite even better value or the Exclusive a bargain to have all this spec. for only £800 more, given that other, so called ‘premium’ brands, charge for most of the items the MG gets on the HS and calls these  ‘packages’  as Bandit said ‘a lot of car for the money’, and, not that it worries us on the Motability scheme, but backed up with a Kia like 7 year warranty  which when handed back to Motabilty will still have 4 years to run

    Hi Susan, that’s the problem with the HS at the moment stock is scattered around and as you have probably seen Blue and Red ones are the most favored for dealerships to have as demo cars so just took a punt, I had a pearl white Qashqai Tekna in their pearl white and it doesn’t seem that dissimilar.

    If you don’t need a opening sky roof, auto tailgate, red/black leather and super sport button, that’s all the deference is,  then at £199 AP it seems a bit of a bargain, as for the badge well , when younger an MGB GT was the sports car to have and as a classic it still holds it’s own, but even only a few years back when the first MG6 was released, wherever  I went, truly, everyone, without exception, who saw it in the flesh could not believe how MG could make such (At that time) a modern saloon at the price, in fact the most used phase said to me was “I didn’t know MG still made cars” so what if  the HS is made in China (what isn’t) still the HS is at another level.

    Please let me know how you are getting on with choosing and ordering

    Hi all, update on MG HS

    ordered mid June collecting mid July, Exclusive Auto in pearl white, red/ black interior a great AP of only £999 as with last quarter Q2 no increase also no discounts or freebies but a huge amount of vehicle tech and safety.

    Ending present term early due to needing Auto, but even so will not be sorry to see the back of my current Mercedes GLA only had it 14 months but what a load of s…, had to add sat nav myself and very uncomfortable I think this is definitely a case of ‘you are paying for the badge’ syndrome.

    Test driven the HS and was a revelation, unrecognizable in every way to the MG6 I had few years back a real modern SUV, loads of toys and tricks to keep the most ‘petrol head’ happy but need the Lane assist turned off, it does pull you back into your lane wither you want to or not but turned of and the HS is very sure footed.

    more of an update next week when I’ve had it a couple of days

    Just had a phone call from dealership 15.36 I have been told all new Q3 prices are with  them NOW , then why is the web site still down? a very bad case of a company (Motability) not giving a damn about it’s customers and all about profit, we are just an inconvenience, it seems, to them . with all those price rises in AP’s maybe it’s time to look elsewhere

    Hi all, settle down for a long night …………….

    Motability has just released full details of their own vehicle to break away from current manufacturers, they will offer their vehicle in one colour and trim to save us searching through all the spec sheets and at a very reasonable AP of only £2395………….

    join the cue it will not be about for long at these prices………….
