Facelifted MG ZS brings revised trims and spec

The facelifted MG ZS is now on sale, introducing design and technology updates including revised trim levels.

Originally launched in November 2017 as a rival to models such as the Nissan Juke, the MG ZS petrol-only compact SUV has MG Motor’s biggest selling car to date. It was also the first MG to be offered with a seven-year warranty, now carried over to the rest of the range.

The revised model brings a new exterior design including revised grille and alloys, as well as an updated cabin with more soft-touch materials, and updated dashboard and interior trim, now including an armrest.

It also introduces an overhauled trim line-up, with just two trim levels – Excite and Exclusive – based on the fact that almost all MG ZS buyers have previously opted for the higher-spec version.

Power comes from a 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine with five-speed manual gearbox and WLTP-rated combined fuel consumption of 41.4mpg and CO2 of 155g/km. Automatic versions will arrive later this year. All versions come with three steering modes – Urban, Normal and Dynamic.

Priced from £15,495 OTR for the manual version, it features standard equipment including full LED headlights, 10.1-inch colour touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus power-folding mirrors. Exclusive versions get iGO satnav, 360-degree reversing camera, Blind Spot Monitoring, heated front seats and electrically adjustable driver’s seat, and a full digital driver’s display.
