    The MG GS is expected to go on sale locally [i.e. in Australia] from Q3 this year (2016). It will be priced from $22,990 (drive-away) for the front-wheel drive 1.5-litre turbo-petrol (124kW/250Nm).
    The ‘SGE’ entry model will be mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission while the ‘NLE’ top-spec 2.0-litre turbo-petrol (162kW/350Nm) will come with a six-speed dual-clutch and all-wheel drive combination.
    Both powertrain options are Euro V emissions standards compliant and both arrive with idle-stop technology as standard.
    As this stage the GS is offered with a three-star EuroNCAP safety rating, however, ANCAP and ASEAN NCAP offer a four-star rating. Both variants are expected to arrive locally with six airbags, rear parking sensors, tyre pressure monitoring, stability and traction control, cornering brake control, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and emergency brake assist.
    Equipment levels are set to include a sunroof, cruise control, climate control, LED DRLs, an electric parking brake, rain-sensing wipers, 17-inch alloy wheels and a 6.1-inch touchscreen Arkamys audio system with digital radio, Bluetooth telephony and audio streaming and USB/auxiliary inputs.
    Higher spec models will add 18-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, xenon headlights, powered seats and a six-speaker audio system with 8.0-inch touchscreen.
