Morris Garages or MG is beefing its Philippine line-up with its first-ever SUV, the GS. Priced at just P 1,250,000, the MG GS brings in British flavor in a segment normally dominated by the Japanese, Korean, and American makes.
The MG GS has the ingredients that make for a fun-to-drive experience. It starts with the MGE 1.5-liter direct-injection turbocharged gasoline engine developing 166 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 250 Nm from 1,700 to 4,400 rpm. This is then mated to a TST 7-speed dual-clutch transmission allowing the MG GS to reach a top speed of 190 km/h while returning up to 12.98 km/L.
Equipped with the Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system, the MG GS can easily handle any kind of weather or road conditions. It can adjust torque distribution quickly—as little as just 0.1 seconds.
Following the lead of the MG3 and MG6, the MG GS takes on the “Faceted Flow” body design. Styled at the brand’s UK design center, the MG GS is definitely visually stunning. The SHARD protection-type HID headlamps then complete the exterior details.
Inside, the MG GS is built for all the lives you lead with a roomy and versatile interior and features such as an electric sun roof, touch screen with hands-free mobile sync technology, reverse parking camera and sensors, rain-sensing wipers, and many more. Even audiophiles will be impressed with the Akramys 3D Surround Sound speaker system.
For safety, it has a “Fifteen-in-One Flagship Level Projection” that include standard features such as a ultra high-tensile steel body, Hill-start Assist System (HAS), Hill Descent Control (HDC), Active Anti-rolling Program (ARP), and many more.
The MG GS is on sale at the Morris Garages showroom located at Unit 3, Ground Floor, Midway Court Building, 241 EDSA Greenhills, Mandaluyong City. For more information, contact MG Philippines: +63-2-725-67-88 or at +63-925-8MG-CARS (64-2277).
