Review

The MG ZS has its strengths, including its relatively classy interior, decent handling and roomy rear seats. However, a Duster Dacia is cheaper to buy, more comfortable and has a bigger boot

get the best price

Mid-spec Excite adds 17in alloy wheels, air conditioning and Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring. It has most things covered, so it’s our pick.

The single-speed electric motor produces 141bhp and 260lb ft of torque. That gets you from 0-60mph in just 8.5sec and you’re never left wanting, even on the motorway. A 50kW CCS charger will get you from pretty much empty up to 80% charged in 40 minutes, while a 7.2kW home charger will go from nearly empty to fully charged in six and a half hours.
