Top Gear Magazine Review

Quite a solid review in the TG magazine, quite impressed, certainly won't hurt the cars chances!

Review: the Qashqai-rivalling MG GS | Top Gear

Yes, seems like a fair write-up.

Overall though, for a car that's been so long in development, the reviews have been disappointing. Although it hasn't been slated, MG seem to be improving at a much slower rate than their rivals, so are just going to fall further and further behind.

Unlike the 3, there doesn't seem to be an awful lot to recommend the GS, which is a worry. Just seems, at best, mediocre; isn't sexy or distinctive enough; whilst each model isn't quite cheap enough or well-equipped enough.

And that's before you throw in the usual gripes of: lack of choice, sparse (often disinterested) dealer network and amateurish marketing.

Ruby - you're dead right. As a very long-time MG enthusiast (nearly 55 years), I think I'm coming to the end of the road. A product range consisting of a seriously under-performing super-mini and a boring SUV just doesn't cut the mustard.

This site doesn't seem to be going anywhere positive either - as I type this, on the same screen is an advert for a Fiat!

The MG GS is low priced. And it is a decent vehicle.
It's another Green Eggs and Ham MG - it seems handling is far better than the much more expensive Qashqai. And we here know from experience that before you can slag off the car that Kimber and owner Morris would be making in 2016, you have to try it!
