The MG GS is a compact SUV (C-segment in Europe) manufactured by the Chinese automaker SAIC Motor under the British marque MG. It was announced at the 2015 Shanghai Motor Show. It was the first SUV produced by MG Motors in China, following the acquisition of the British brand by SAIC Group. This vehicle lasted for a short period of time, and shared a platform with the Roewe RX5.
The MG GS reached the international market in 2016, although it had a specific version for China. Primarily, the MG GS featured two engines: a 1.5 Turbo GDI SAIC CUBE-TEC engine (designed in collaboration with General Motors) and a 2.0 Turbo GDI engine designed in collaboration with Opel.
The MG GS ceased its production in 2018, making way for the MG HS, a slightly larger compact SUV, though it continued to share components with the Roewe RX5.
