Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Pros
Great-looking,
smart inside,
refined,
easy to use and with a great overall dynamic package

Cons
A little of the sparkle has gone,
a few options should be standard,
while some cabin trim still under par

By: 
topgear.com

The Ford Fiesta is superb to drive, smart inside and well equipped, plus it offers a broad range of trim levels – from the affordable Trend to the SUV-inspired Active – to cater for many tastes and budgets. It’s one of the very best small cars you can buy, but the rival Volkswagen Polo just has the edge for ride comfort, standard safety and rear seat space.

Pros
Brilliant to drive
Punchy Ecoboost engines
Good fuel economy

Cons
Some rivals are better value
Decent but not class-leading practicality
Important safety kit not standard

By: 
whatcar.com

The MG ZS EV offers a lot for the money in the electric car world, with good interior space, a big boot and plenty of standard equipment. The thing to remember, though, is that more expensive electric cars, such as the Nissan Leaf and Kia e-Niro, are generally better to drive and, thanks to better resale values, might not cost you that much more in the long run.

Pros
Lot of room for passengers
Big boot
Well equipped

Cos
Poor predicted resale values
Limited steering wheel adjustment
Not that comfortable or good to drive

By: 
whatcar.com

The MG ZS EV could be a surprise hit thanks to its powerful motor, excellent practicality and bargain price

Pros
An affordable EV
Improved drive
Practical

Cos
Cheap interior feel
Wallowy handling
No companion app

By: 
carbuyer.co.uk

PROS
Low list price and good finance options
Usable electric range and performance
Seven-year warranty, five-star safety rating
Practicality unaffected by EV conversion

CONS
Less range than key rivals
It’s not quite as cheap as we had hoped
Low-rent interior
Not exciting to drive
