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

The 2021 Jeep Compass's #15 ranking is based on its score within the Compact SUVs category. Currently the Jeep Compass has a score of 7.2 out of 10, which is based on our evaluation of 34 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Excellent off-roader
Adult-friendly seats
User-friendly infotainment features

Cons
Weak engine and so-so handling
Limited standard safety tech and low safety score
Below-average cargo room

By:

The Compass enters 2021 with minor changes. There's a new 80th Anniversary Edition that's based on the Latitude trim level and features Granite Crystal 19-inch wheels, leather seats with contrast stitching, a power-adjustable driver's seat, remote start, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, a 115-volt power outlet, and more. Other flourishes include trim-specific badging, an oak medallion key fob, and piano-black and gunmetal interior accents. The Limited and Trailhawk trims both add more standard active safety features, such as adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist..

Pros
Can actually handle some off-road obstacles,
no shortage of popular technology,
one of the prettier Jeep designs.

Cons
Inferior interior materials,
powertrain has apathetic responses,
the Cherokee offers more capability.

The Jeep Compass has impressive off-road credentials, but its poor road manners and noisy engines mean it's ultimately off the pace.

Pros
Good off-road ability
Reasonably spacious interior

Cons
Terrible engine refinement
Small boot for its class
