MG Philippines drives to Baler

Ending the year right



It has been an exciting 2019 for MG Philippines. The British heritage car brand was introduced to the Philippine motoring public through engaging marketing campaigns, aggressive sales promotions, and reliable aftersales complements.

The best qualities of modern MGs — easy and fun to drive, comfortable interiors, packed with modern driver and passenger safety accoutrements, and with designs that are very easy on the eyes — were put to the test at the MG Media Getaway powered by Phoenix Pulse Technology.


MG Philippines’ first media ride-and-drive event took over a dozen Filipino motoring journalists on a 270 kilometer drive from MG EDSA Centris to the idyllic surfing town of Baler, Aurora. This drive hoped to demonstrate the durability and reliability of MGs on various road conditions; passenger comfort with ample legroom, headroom, and luggage space; and unmatched comfort and driver ease over extended periods of driving.


On hand for the journey was the full lineup of MG Philippines, including the MG ZS Crossover SUV; the MG 6 fastback sedan; the RX5 SUV; and MG Philippines’ latest offering: the MG 5 sedan. All four vehicles were launched during MG’s inaugural year in the Philippines.

MG Philippines’ vehicles are aggressively priced, with the most attainable MG 5 1.5L MT coming in at only Php 658,888.00. Despite these low price points, MG cars are, depending on the spec level, equipped with class-leading features including touch screen infotainment systems, 360-degree camera view, panoramic sunroof, automatic LED headlights, traction control, and hill start assist just to name a few.

These vehicles are likewise supplemented by MG Philippines’ premium aftersales offers and services which include a five-year or 100,000km warranty (whichever comes first) on all brand new MG cars, and one-year free periodic maintenance service (PMS) to set your mind at ease. Aside from that, MG owners can also download the My MG mobile app which allows them to easily schedule vehicle servicing appointments from the convenience of their smartphones. They can also use the app to book a visit from MG Philippines’ Mobile Garage service caravan that provides MG owners with vehicle home service for major technical issues. MG HERO Services, on the other hand, provides 24/7 roadside support through the MG Philippines hotline (+632 5328 – 4664).

Once in Baler, the delegation touched down at L’Sirene Boutique Resort — a quiet enclave away from the very popular (and populated) Sabang Beach, perfect for relaxing moments of peace yet still within proximity of the famous surfing waves of Baler. After a relaxing afternoon on the beach, a night of lively socials, and an invigorating beach sunrise, the group was re-energized for the drive home.


2020 is going to be another exciting year for MG Philippines, with its nationwide dealership network set to expand even further. Under The Covenant Car Company, Inc. (TCCCI), it’s safe to say that MG Philippines is set to make an even bigger splash in the coming year.
