Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The ZS’s low pricing and seven-year, 80,000-mile standard warranty both help the car stand out. Its list price comfortably undercuts that of most rivals, making it a cheaper cash buy, although the Duster is cheaper still.

Monthly PCP costs are usually competitive with the Duster, too, although fuel economy isn't. In addition, resale values are not expected to be as strong as those of the competition, including the Duster.

Overview

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

  • Rear seat space
  • Cheaper than most rivals
  • Seven-year warranty
  • Poor safety rating
  • Uneconomical engines
  • So-so performance
