Auto Class Cars, the authorized distributer of MG in Qatar, has recently launched the two amazing new vehicles MG RX8 and MG HS at its showroom in Qatar. Both cars are receiving high demand thanks to their distinctive design, amazing features and high-end technology.
The MG RX8 is the first-ever seven-seat SUV from the British-born automotive brand. A robust and spacious SUV – with the largest wheelbase in its segment - the new seven-seater introduces MG Motor to a segment it has previously never been present in. The MG RX8 is a fully equipped 4x4 with six different driving modes. Its strong truck chassis frame is capable of handling the toughest off-road terrains, and is powered by an efficient 220HP 2.0-litre turbo engine.
Its spacious modular interior features adjustable rear seats and the largest third-row space in its segment. An array of premium materials including wood grain and soft-touch trim gives the RX8 a high-class feel. And, modern features such as a 10-inch touch screen in-car entertainment system, ventilated seats and wireless mobile device charging capabilities make the RX8 the perfect partner for an active family.
The new MG HS is the sportiest SUV ever made by the British-born brand. With its powerful turbo engine, dynamic styling and wide range of great features, the MG HS has been designed to put the ‘sport’ back into SUV. The arrival of the totally new MG HS SUV is yet another major step forward in MG Motor’s resurgence, as the brand continues to change perceptions among new car buyers across the region thanks to its highly advanced and well-equipped range of sedans and SUVs.
Featuring the brand’s latest design language, the MG HS takes its styling cues from the acclaimed X-Motion concept car that was unveiled in 2015. The centrepiece of the front-end design is an attractive Star grille that incorporates the iconic MG badge. It is complemented by the smart use of chrome to frame the grille, foglamps and lower air intake, while two-tone headlights embedded with nine crystal LEDs are available. The sporty look of the MG HS combines soft curves with the sleek lines that flow from the bonnet and down the side before rising at the rear to sweep over the rear lights, which consist of 21 individual LEDs that light up sequentially. The cabin of the all-new MG HS simply oozes class, reinforcing the brand’s reputation for delivering premium finishes at non-premium prices. Some 85% of the interior is covered with soft material, while customers can opt from three attractive interior colour schemes.
The sporty nature of the car is emphasised by the racing-style bucket seats that are fitted in top-of-the-range trims. In the front, there are not one but two high-quality display screens. A 12.3” Virtual Instrument display, the largest in its class, is located behind the steering wheel and provides a breakthrough in the way that key information is communicated to the driver. A new 10.1” high resolution touch screen with high-performance is compatible with both Apple Carplay and Android Auto.
MG’s current range of cars is recognised for the extremely high levels of equipment and technology it offers, and the HS is no different. The impressive list of equipment provided on all COM trims includes driver aids such as a rear-view camera, rear parking sensors, cruise control and an ECO cruising driving reminder.
