Introduction

What Car? says...

The trouble with SUVs is they're more expensive to buy than their regular hatchback equivalents. At least most of them are, because the MG ZS is actually cheaper to buy than a Ford Fiesta. 

The regular MG ZS is available with a choice of two petrol engines – a 1.0-litre and a 1.5. The smaller engine is actually more powerful and comes with an automatic gearbox as standard, whereas the latter has a five-speed manual gearbox. 

However, there's also a pure electric version called the ZS EV that you can read about in detail here or by watching our video review above.

Either way, the ZS is a family-sized SUV, meaning it's roughly the same size as a Nissan Qashqai. Given it's budget price tag, though, its closest rival is the Dacia Duster.

So, is the MG ZS a credible, bargain alternative to the well-established competition? Or is it a case of the old adage 'you get what you pay for?'. Over the next few pages we'll tell you all you need to know.

And if you decide to buy, use our New Car Buying service to see how much you could save on an MG ZS or any other car, without the hassle of haggling.
