The MG ZS has a relatively upmarket interior, roomy rear seats, tidy handling and a long warranty. Extremely competitive pricing explains away a lot of its flaws, including its unsettled ride, but the absence of automatic emergency braking is harder to forgive. We reckon the cheapest 1.5 VTi-tech engine in Excite trim makes the most sense.

If you want some extra luxuries, you’ll want to go for this top-spec Trophy trim level. On top of the standard equipment that you get with SE trim, you also get wireless phone-charging, a 360-degree parking camera, rain-sensing wipers, a panoramic sunroof, leatherette seats, heated front seats and power-folding mirrors.

With its usable battery power of 49kWh, the entry-level MG ZS EV can officially travel around 198 miles between charges while giving you decent enough performance. It’ll cover 0-62mph in just over 8.0sec, which isn’t all that brisk but fast enough that you won’t struggle to reach motorway speeds quickly.
