The MG HS offers excellent value for money and lots of equipment, and also has a classy interior and decent performance from the 1.5 T-GDi petrol engine (if you’re prepared to work it). The downsides are its laggy infotainment system, rather coarse engine and small boot by class standards. Still, the HS petrol is well worth considering. The plug-in hybrid model feels less polished and isn't as good value as the much better Ford Kuga PHEV.

The MG HS’s 1.5-litre petrol engine is flexible enough in normal driving, but the smaller 1.2-litre petrol in the Citroën C5 Aircross picks up quicker from low revs. That said, the HS is actually pretty brisk when you work the engine really hard, chalking up a 9.0sec 0-60mph time on our damp test track. It can be quite coarse when you rev it but drive it carefully and it can do a respectable 34mpg in the real world.
