The MG ZS-T is the top-of-the-line model of the subcompact crossover. What set this model apart from the rest is its use of a 1.3-liter turbocharged engine with 161 horsepower and 230 Nm of torque. Meanwhile, the MG HS is the company’s flagship model, offering a turbo engine, a 5-seater seating, and a tech-packed interior, among others.

“The thrust of The Covenant Car Company, Inc. (TCCCI) for MG Philippines is to be the preferred mobility partner of the growing progressive Filipino driver and rider. We have continuously offered our vehicle to be part of the everyday commute and the overall well-being of our clients,” said Atty. Arcilla.

“MG is a brand that has been synonymous with cars that excite and inspire people, just like the Ateneo Blue Eagles. The Ateneo community comes together to cheer for our volleyball teams because of the electrifying atmosphere at the games venues and the delight of seeing our teams play as one,” said Ateneo De Manila University Director for University Athletics Emmanuel Fernandez.
