2021 MG ZST Specs

August 31, 2021

The MG ZST arrived in the busy small SUV segment in 2021. Initially offered in two trims – Excite and Essence – it complemented the existing MG ZS range by offering sharper styling and a suite of advanced driver assist systems that were previously not seen on a small SUV from MG.

Shortly after, MG launched two more entry grades of ZST to the market – Core and Vibe. The 2021 MG ZST is powered by a naturally aspirated 84kW/150Nm 1.5-litre four cylinder engine with CVT transmission.

Standard features include MG’s Pilot drive assist suite, which includes autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and lane-change assist.

Across the range is a 10.1-inch infotainment system, with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto. Satellite navigation is in-built on Vibe models and up.
