It may be very well priced but doesn’t skimp on features. Standard are a 10.1-inch multi-function colour touch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Rear-view camera and parking sensors. A four-speaker audio system with Bluetooth and 3 USB connectivity points.

It has a flat-bottom steering wheel with audio controls, reading lights are standard. The interior cabin comes trimmed in quality fabric.

MG Pilot includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Front Collison Warning, Emergency Braking, Speed Assist and Lane Departure Warnings plus four additional automated technologies. The MG HS Core has a five-star ANCAP safety rating.

Peter Ciao, CEO, MG Motor Australia and New Zealand, said: “At MG Motor, we’re working hard to create a product portfolio which offers genuine value to every single car buyer. The MG HS has been praised for its spacious stylish design, its safety credentials and impressive technology features as standard. We’ve listened to our customer feedback when conceptualising this base model variant for the MG HS range. The introduction of Core was in response to our customers’ requests for a fabric seat covering.”

HS Vibe: $30,990
HS Excite: $34,790
