Morris Garages brings in first crossover

GS SUV offers competitive price

GS1British marque, Morris Garages (MG), is strengthening its presence in the Philippine market with the launch of its new GS crossover SUV. It employs the brand’s ‘Faceted Flow’ design philosophy to imbue the vehicle with sleek “shard” headlights and tail lights, yet large bumpers and generous use of scratch proof material in front and behind.

Inside, the GS features hooded instrument binnacles, intergrated entertainment and climate control systems as well as generous use of piano gloss accents for the dashboard. The second row seats have 60/40 split fold function to grant more cargo space or carry bulky items.GS2

Propelling the vehicle is a SGE 1.5TGI direct injection turbo-charged engine paired with a TST seven-speed dry dual-clutch transmission with paddle shifters. This is regulated by an intelligent all-wheel drive system that MG claims can adjust torque distribution with 0.1 seconds of detecting wheel slippage. This ensures that all 168 PS and 250 Nm of torque are delivered to the driving wheels as efficiently as possible.

Besides the intelligent all-wheel drive, the GS also features a body structure made of ultra high-tensile streel, a Hill-start Assist system, Hill Descent Control, Tire Pressure Monitoring and several other features to complete its “Fifteen-in-one Flagship Level Protection” system.

As for comfort features, the GS offers luxuries like automatic climate control, a sunroof with anti-jam, automatic headlights, leather seats, a cooling glove compartment, and a rear parking camera.

For now, the GS is only available in the 1.5-liter TGI trim. 1.5-liter T 4×2 and 2.0-liter AWD grades will follow at a later time.

Available colors for the 2016 MG GS are: Moonlight White, Birmingham Orange, Black Opal, Champagne, Scottish Silver and York Brown.

For vehicle servicing, MG offers a trunk line that owners can call to schedule their vehicle. A driver will arrive at their set location to pickup their vehicle, have it serviced and return it to them once done.

The MG GS 1.5T AWD Deluxe is available for P1,250,000 and can be viewed at the Morris Garages showroom at the ground floor of the Midway Court bldg., 241 EDSA Greenhills, Mandaluyong City. They can contact MG Philippines at 725-67-88. MG’s other models, MG 5 and MG GT are also on display.
