Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

Cos
Cheap interior feel

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

The MG GS is the brand’s first SUV, built to rival the Nissan Qashqai, Renault Kadjar and Vauxhall Mokka X. The MG costs less than all those models and is also a little bigger so, in terms of value for money, it’s off to a flying start.

Pros
Decent looks
Punchy engine
Low price

Cons
Cheap feeling cabin
Firm ride
Small boot
