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

By:

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

T-Cross offers just enough over a Polo to make it worth thinking about.

Pros
Spacious and agreeable to drive
Different to a Polo,
Refined enough

Cons
Less refined and more expensive than the car it’s based on.
Low quality interior

Lots of passenger space
Loads of standard equipment

Cons
Noisy at speed
Materials feel a bit cheap
Alternatives look more exciting

By:

No hybrid model
