Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used MG ZS hatchback?

In the end, it is the Seat Arona that makes the best case for itself in the small SUV class. Its boot is very nearly as big as the one in the MG ZS and it’s much nicer to drive. It’ll be cheaper to run, too.

If you want value, try a Renault Captur. For similar money to a ZS 1.5 Excite, you can have a Captur with plenty of kit, a pleasant 0.9-litre turbo petrol engine and the additional flexibility of a sliding rear bench seat.

Overview

The MG ZS is a practical small SUV at an affordable price but is far off the pace dynamically compared with rivals. The EV version makes some sense.

  • Plenty of space
  • Responsive infotainment
  • Big boot
  • Poor quality interior
  • Unsettled ride
  • Average range in EV version
