Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The SsangYong Tivoli is a stylish car with a low price and generous standard equipment, which may tempt some buyers from more established competition.

Pros
Excellent warranty
Spacious inside
Good value

Cons
Poor ride comfort
Varying interior quality
Petrol engine is quite noisy

By: 
carbuyer.co.uk

The Ssangyong Tivoli is decent for the money, but massively outclassed in many areas – including space, efficiency and comfort – by pricier small SUVs, such as the Ford Puma, Volkswagen T-Roc and Skoda Kamiq. But the Dacia Duster also outclasses it in several ways, while being more efficient to run and cheaper to buy outright.

Pros
Competitively priced
Reasonably spacious
Well equipped higher-spec trims

Cons
Entry-level trim is sparse
Relatively high running costs
So-so handling and fidgety ride

By:

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
