2020 MG ZS: Owner Review

September 16, 2021

The MG ZS fit all these and more. We wanted a car that was economical to run in town, but with enough power and cabin room for us to travel to visit family a couple of times a year.

The interior is very comfortable, well set out and has all the features we needed. There is a full colour 8-inch touchscreen, leather seats, adjustable steering wheel / driver’s seat and ice cold air con. Being that my wife and I are both tall the seats are comfortable and still provide plenty of passenger leg room in the rear, even with the seats needing to be back.

The tech in the car extends beyond the audio and driving comforts but includes adjustable steering performance from soft to dynamic to suit the driving conditions. Dynamic is very responsive and precise on long winding roads.

Having just a 1.5-litre power train I was concerned about the performance, but I didn’t need to be. Initially I found it lacking but once the first 1000km were done it was a different car. I find it is light on the foot and the wallet, and it has performed well both around town and on the highway. The fuel economy is exceptional and has met my expectations for running costs with an average of 550km on a tank in town.

Ours is the base model in the range and does not have some of the advanced safety and driver’s features, such as lane departure warning, blind-spot alert and satellite navigation. The Excite Plus, Essence and Trophy models offer additional features that may suit your needs.

When you add in 7 years unlimited kilometre warranty, 7 years road side assistance, we could not be happier with our purchase. It has a comfortable and enjoyable driving experience, all the safety, tech and room we need and the reassurance of a solid warranty. Also it looks damn good as well, and with metallic paint and alloy wheels we couldn’t go wrong.

What we love:

  • Comfort, Styling
  • Value for Money
  • Affordability
  • Warranty and Support
