MG PH lineup

MG Philippines announced that its full lineup in the country has posted impressive numbers at the recent fuel economy run.


  • What MG models joined the fuel economy run?

    MG Philippines fielded its MG 5, ZS, ZST, and HS to the eco run.
  • What MG model had the highest rating?

    The MG 5 had the highest score with a 20.20kpl rating.
  • The test — recorded by the Automobile Association Philippines (AAP) — showed that the MG 5 sedan, ZS, ZST, and HS all breached the 17-kilometers per liter (kpl) rating.

    “The test was done to formalize the fuel efficiency ratings of MG vehicles while providing car-buying Filipinos with unbiased and impartial data on a very important feature for cars nowadays. This AAP fuel eco run validates yet another winning asset of MG cars and SUVs—apart from their modern style, advanced tech features, rich British heritage, and attainable price points—that makes them even more desirable for the discerning customer,” MG Philippines shared in a statement.

    According to Morris Garage’s local distributor, strict parameters and real-world conditions such as normal usage of air-conditioning, rolling up of windows, keeping within regulated road speed limits, and with tires pumped to factory-recommended pressure were followed during the course of the test. Aside from that, all traffic rules and regulations were followed and no “hypermiling techniques” were employed by the drivers.

    Below are the vehicles that MG Philippines fielded during the AAP-sanctioned fuel eco run, and their corresponding fuel mileage ratings:

    “Our effort to formalize and document the fuel economy figures of our MG vehicles aims to strengthen the already high, inherent value for money offered by our numerous product offerings here at MG Philippines,” MG Philippines President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Atty. Alberto Arcilla said.

     “Our MG cars and SUVs feature top notch tech and safety features, space, comfort, and easy drivability, and are given support by innovative aftersales services from our dealership network, of which we have 42 dealers nationwide. We at MG Philippines are proud to offer vehicles that can be considered ‘responsible purchases’ because of their high value for money proposition; and now, with their impressive fuel efficiency ratings confirmed by the AAP, we can add yet another aspect that makes a responsible purchase out of these modern, global MG cars and SUVs,” the company CEO added.
