New MG ZS EV vs new Renault Zoe
Renault has upgraded the Zoe with a super range, while MG is undercutting every comparable electric car. Who has the brighter idea?...
The ZS’s 8.0in touchscreen system is reasonably easy to use, thanks to logical menus. The screen sometimes takes a while to respond after you’ve pressed it, though, and resolution isn’t that impressive in this company. You get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard, meaning you can hook up your smartphone and use selected apps via the car’s touchscreen. The six-speaker sound system is nothing special.
This is a huge improvement on the system in the original Zoe. Go for GT Line trim and you get a 9.3in portrait touchscreen (cheaper versions have a 7.0in display) that trumps the ZS’s for both speed and resolution. It’s easier to use, too, and again Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard. The optional Bose sound system (£500) is better than the MG’s equivalent, but it still isn’t worth the money and its subwoofer takes up some boot space.
