MG has unveiled its new SUV - the GS - at the London Motor Show.
At an exclusive preview event at the Battersea Park show, MG pulled the covers off the latest addition to the UK model range.
MG Motors also announced that the GS will feature the British manufacturer’s first automatic transmission since rebirth in 2011. The top spec GS will be available with the option of a DCT gearbox; which will be more responsive and provide customers with a much smoother ride says MG. The GS will also come with an ‘agile’ 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine and will be available in three different trim levels.
Matthew Cheyne, Head of Sales and Marketing for MG, said: “When considering transmissions and engine choices, we listened to our customers and looked at market trends. It’s not only a momentous occasion to unveil our first SUV, it is also a significant moment to announce our first automatic – something many of our customers have been waiting for, and so we’re thrilled to be offering it to them.”
MG is also assuring customers that when prices are announced in June, they will reflect the family pricing strategy. Cheyne added: “Regarding how much this fantastic new car will cost, it will be consistent with our other models. We’re proud of the fact our prices are transparent. When we say our cars are affordable, we mean it. The price structures are easy to understand and have no surprise additions.
“When we officially launch the GS next month, people will be able to find out more about the car’s performance and when they can get behind the wheel of one.”
