Which used MG ZS hatchback should I buy?

If you want the most sporting model, it has to be the V6. Badged ZS180, the engine produces 177bhp and blasts the car from 0-60mph in 7.3sec and on to a top speed of 139mph. Standard kit includes 17in alloy wheels, part-leather trim and an aggressive-looking bodykit.

Avoid the two 2.0-litre turbodiesels, one with 100bhp and one with 110bhp, as they're off the pace for refinement and performance. Likewise, you can find the 117bhp 1.8-litre ZS120 with a CVT automatic gearbox, but you're better off sticking with the five-speed manual.
