Expected to arrive in dealerships in late 2017, the MG XS will be available in two engine derivatives and with either an automatic or manual transmission. The XS is also the manufacturer’s first car to be marketed under different names in the UK and China.
The new model joins the MG3 Supermini and MG GS SUV in the brand’s new line-up for 2017. Pricing is promised to be “highly competitive”.
Matthew Cheyne, Head of Sales and Marketing at MG Motor UK, commented: “The MG XS will be a real game-changer in the compact SUV marketplace. The meaning behind the name is simple – S stands for SUV, X means extra. Featuring state-of-the-art driver technology and innovative design, the new model builds on our growing reputation for capability, performance and quality, positioned at a highly-affordable price – the customer gets extra, for less!
“Full specifications, trim details and pricing will be announced later this year. Until then, customers can pre-book test drives and pre-order model brochures via approved MG dealers nationwide.”
