      I recently checked this car MG ZS Auto. it was a very nice unit and with all the Bells and Whistles that are with it. Talk about value, this was certainly value for money. Unfortunately it had one drawback that I did not like, the fuel had to be a minimum of 95 RON and preferably 98 RON, this makes it very expensive to fill the Tank. A bit strange, when our Governments are trying to bring us all down to E10.

      Yes you could put larger rims and tires. An 18" or even 19" would look better

      The MG brand is owned by the Chinese State. Buy one and support nuclear weapon development, military island construction, and other fine things.

      Not a bad looking SUV, there are a lot of styling similarities to Borgward SUV ( still in concept stage ). Dash and various controls neatly well laid out and a nice airy cabin.
      Price is very enticing indeed.

      It's shocking that this is named a mg zs after the brilliant zs of the early 2000's such a shame that so many of these SUV cars are about now. Having said that I know it's people making the SUV popular it's just a shame the saloon car is dying out because that are superior to drive and maneuver and some of them actually have more room inside .

      I almost brought a Evoque land rover second hand one at the same price, but didn't because the warranty wasnt very good and it would of been a huge risk of it breaking down at six years old, . So I brought the mg essence in black forr now, for the next six years infact, it would do what it i need it to do.

      The Chinese knock off (Land Wind) is actually far more reliable than the original Land Rover!

      YOU HAD ONE JOB !!
      Car advice has concluded young buyers are more concerned with the stereo and touchscreen than the engine and transmission.
      I think they have been told this bullshit by car companies keen to emphasize the cheap components in the car rather than the substantial and expensive components. Please stop this terrible review nonsense.....if you want people to trust you.....
      The base MG ZS has a disappointing 4 speed auto BUT the higher spec 1 litre / 3 cylinder has a 6 speed auto. This type of info is very interesting since the competition in this segment either has a 6 speed auto or terrible CVT's...Customers might like to know this on top of the fake carbon fibre trim !!
      PS : the "5 things about" bullshit is just that. It's a fucking review, stop trying to misrepresent the video, it's so 2017.

      The title is "5 Things About MG's new small SUV". It's just 5 random facts about the car, not a full review as such. If i'd set out to make a review video, it would be called "2018 MG ZS Review".

      And we haven't concluded that young buyers are more concerned with the stereo and touchscreen than the engine and transmission. We've never stated that and we are completely aware that buyers of all ages cannot be pigeon holed into such shallow criteria. I'm not sure how you've come to this conclusion when we've covered multiple areas of the cars features in this video.

      As I stated at the top of this video, we had the top spec ZS and yes, while it's great the gearbox isn't a CVT, we found there were other things slightly more interesting about the car. A far more detailed level of information can easily be found on our website. Again, this isn't a full review video, just 5 fun facts about the MG ZS.

      Another poor car out of China with an MG badge of goody {sarcasm}. Interior look underdone and cheap I am sorry to say. Yes what engine what transmission and how reliable. On the short list I think not.

      Saying it's probably the cheapest full size SUV you can buy with a 4 or 5 star safety rating. Has to be decent. Anyone that's looking for good interior for any car that's under 25k is a laughing stock. You won't find it.
