MG ZS

(2017 - present)

The MG ZS is a budget compact SUV/crossover that arrived in the UK in late 2017. The car is designed in the UK but built in China.

The ZS is currently available with either a petrol or diesel engine. An electric model joined the range in 2019, but this is not covered by this page. We are building a separate page for the ZS EV, so check back soon.

The MG ZS has received poor to average reviews from the UK motoring media, and has one of the lowest overall Expert Ratings of any of the cars we have collected data on so far. Reviewers have praised the ZS for being more spacious than many rivals and for offering a seven-year new car warranty, but have criticised its poor safety rating and underpowered engines.
