Which used MG GS hatchback should I buy?
Since there’s only one engine available, it’s really a choice of manual or automatic. We’d stick with the manual because it’s cheaper to run.
Of the three models on offer, go for mid-range Excite because you get cruise control, Bluetooth, DAB radio, an 8.0in colour touchscreen with MirrorLink and rear parking sensors with a reversing camera. The base Explore version may come with air conditioning and auto headlights, but it misses out on simple stuff such as remote central locking – which is odd.
Top-of-the-range Exclusive cars do get sat-nav and full leather, but the fact the interior isn’t that plush means it never feels that luxurious and, therefore, isn’t worth the additional expense.
