Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The MG ZS lobbed locally late last year to stake a claim on the highly competitive small SUV segment. But has the second SUV from the now Chinese-owned brand done enough to shift public perception?

Pros
Excellent road manners
Spritely three-pot turbo engine
Industry-leading seven-year warranty
Loaded with standard features
Sharp pricing

Cons
Four-star ANCAP rating a blot
No digital speedo
Noisy air-con compressor

By:

The MG ZS has its strengths, including its relatively classy interior, decent handling and roomy rear seats. However, a Duster Dacia is cheaper to buy, more comfortable and has a bigger boot.

Pros
Rear seat space
Cheaper than most rivals
Seven-year warranty

Cons
Poor safety rating
Uneconomical engines
So-so performance

By: 
whatcar.com

Pros
Powerful turbocharged engine
Handsome updated styling
Standard active safety tech

Cons
Luxury Avenir trim will be expensive
The brand doesn't command as much respect as some competitors

Buick has completely redesigned the Envision SUV for 2021, imbuing it with an eye-catching design that's far more handsome than the bland 2020 model featured.We haven't had the chance to sample the all-new Envision, but we suspect that the mid-range Essence model will likely satisfy most buyers. Those seeking a luxury ride with all the trimmings should turn their attention to the top-flight Avenir. When we know more about the Envision's standard and optional features, we'll update this story with results.

The redesigned 2021 Buick Envision comes with more standard features and a more stylish look.

Pros
Good standard safety features
Avenir trim
More American-sized proportions
Sharper style

Cons
No word on price
Will it have enough power?
Is it bigger inside?

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine is no longer offered.Previous five trim levels reduced to three: Preferred, Essence and Avenir.Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard.

Pros
Quiet interior at highway speeds
Both the ride and the seats are comfortable
Standard wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto

Cons
Disappointing real-world fuel economy
Visibility is compromised by thick pillars
Not much fun to drive
