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

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
