Excitement is building in the automotive world as MG gears up to launch the next-generation 2025 MG HS mid-size family SUV in Australia. Set to make its grand debut on Thursday, 11 July 2024 at 7:00 pm AEST, this will be the first new HS model in five years. The updated SUV promises a range of impressive features and options to cater to diverse preferences and needs.

Engine Options and Hybrid Technology

The 2025 MG HS will be available with two turbo-petrol engine options: a 1.5-litre and a 2.0-litre. Additionally, MG is introducing a plug-in hybrid version, marking a significant step towards eco-friendly driving solutions. This hybrid variant is expected to offer an unmatched all-electric range within its class, making it a standout choice for environmentally conscious consumers.

Design and Features

Based on the Roewe RX5 from MG's parent company SAIC, the new MG HS will sport a restyled front fascia and conventional door handles instead of pop-out units, among other styling tweaks. These updates aim to provide a fresh, modern look while ensuring practicality and ease of use.

A teaser video released by MG and spy photos captured in Australia, alongside patent images, confirm the similarities between the new HS and the Roewe RX5. This alignment highlights the global design strategy while ensuring the vehicle meets the specific needs and preferences of the Australian market.

Plug-In Hybrid Advantage

The plug-in hybrid variant of the Roewe RX5, MG's domestic market equivalent, boasts an impressive electric-only driving range of up to 135 km, thanks to its recently enlarged 21.4 kWh battery. This feature is anticipated to be a significant selling point for the hybrid model, providing an excellent option for those looking to reduce their carbon footprint without compromising on performance.

Model Grades and Transmissions

Australian customers can expect three petrol-only model grades for the 2025 MG HS. The base model will come equipped with the 1.5-litre engine paired with a dual-clutch transmission. In contrast, the other two grades will offer the option of the more powerful 2.0-litre engine, coupled with a nine-speed automatic transmission. This variety ensures that there is an MG HS model to suit a range of driving styles and requirements.

A Thoughtful Approach to the Australian Market

David Hearty, MG Motor Australia’s general manager of marketing, emphasized the extensive effort invested in adapting the vehicle for the Australian market. "I think calling it a rebadge is probably doing a bit of injustice to it," Hearty told Drive. "There's a lot of work that goes into the vehicles we bring here to make sure they are suitable for the market."

Hearty also highlighted the importance of design language in creating a cohesive and appealing product lineup. "When you see that vehicle as a finished product, it is in no way a mismatch. It certainly belongs in the stable," he added.


The unveiling of the next-generation 2025 MG HS marks an exciting chapter for MG and Australian consumers. With its range of engine options, including a groundbreaking plug-in hybrid, and thoughtful design updates, the new MG HS is set to make a significant impact in the mid-size family SUV segment. Keep an eye out for the official reveal on 11 July 2024, and get ready to experience the future of driving with MG.
