The MG ZS our first drive and review of the 1.5 petrol manual exclusive edition, soft touch material, stitched leather options and lots of gloss. Packed with plenty of kit, a 7 year warranty and a price much cheaper than its rivals, MG have got a winner when it comes to this cross over.

      Great review guys, just wondering what editing tools do you guys use?

      I’ve just ordered an Auto Exclusive model, should get it next week, can’t wait. Just wondering why they supply it with push button start in other countries but not in the UK? I was thinking it’s to do with costing, any ideas? But for the money, amazing spec

      Planet Auto Brilliant thanks, this is actually my kids Channel, I didn’t realise when I wrote on here 😂 but I use Splice at the mo for their vids, but it’s very limited.

      I’ll look forward to the Auto review, I’ll subscribe so I don’t miss it. Many thanks for the reply.

      We are literally working on finishing the ZS Auto this minute should be released later or tomorrow, the Auto is very good. We use Final Cut & Adobe Premiere. It’s strange the push button start isn’t in the UK, we’ll see if we can find out, thank you.

      You ask what more do I want at 06:06 and I can tell you right now that I would want Android Auto and two-way steering wheel adjustment, i.e. tilt AND telescope! Not everyone owns (or wants to own) an iPhone (32%) so pretty much the rest of the world has an Android phone (48.5%) but why have MG not bothered with Android Auto? Do they get a kick-back from Apple? In addition, at 6ft 3in I find it's okay to move the seat back far enough to be comfortable with the pedals but my arms are not as long as my legs and if I can't pull the steering wheel towards me then it's a constant uncomfortable stretch.

      Ray Jennings well we get the ZS for a week very soon, in the next review we’ll be putting the vehicle through it paces, rather than driving it for 90mins, money wise and what you get is great value, longevity is where we’re interested to see how it fairs.

      With modern cars being so good nowadays this will only get a 'meh' review by any of the premium car reviewers. Chinese, good spec, so so engines. Although if I drove this along side my old ZS/ZR it will be miles ahead. New cars are probably too good nowadays!

      Yes it's quite a nice looking SUV for the money and should do well especially with a 7 year 80K warranty if MG stays the course. As for the video its spoiled by the kid who looks fresh out of school and obviously has no knowledge about cars and the lady with the long sleeved jumper lol, it all comes across as very tacky and amature.
      Would I buy one..... not sure one thing is at those prices and long warranty its impossible to lose too much money, I wish it had slightly more powerful engines a diesel and a 4 wheel drive option.

      I'm wondering, if you're available and up for it, if you'd like to come along for the day?

      The opinions which have been expressed in this video are in comparison to cars in a similar price bracket (Dacia Duster & Ford EcoSport Zetec etc). We shall be conducting a full review in the next few months, once the car has been throughly tested we shall then address any down falls of the ZS. Our opinions which we have expressed in this video are our own and unfortunately we are not yet on MG's payroll, we were genuinely impressed with the car in the short time in which we got to drive it.

      Whats the deal? three people sit in the car to make sure they say all the good things that the MG press guys have slipped them some notes for? Weirdest test drive ever watched.

      Second guy has clearly just dragged himself out of bed. This is not in any way an unbiased review - utter praise for everything about it, to the point of being absolutely besotted with the ride quality as if this car miraculously wipes the floor with anything ever made on 4 wheels. FFS

      Prissy and on my high-horse? The 3 is the same car as it was in 2014 - as an actual owner of one I feel free to comment, having also seen the new ZS I too feel able to comment, just as these guys have commented. You will also see I replied to them and acknowledged I applaud their efforts - I don;t have to agree with them. These are merely my opinions, I'm not really getting your opinion as you haven't bothered to offer a counter opinion on the car just the mere fact that I expressed mine - odd.

      That's an unprofessional and offensive comment right there. Accusing an enthusiastic and independent review team of taking money in exchange for a good review?

      I think Jim should take another look at his comments in the cold light of day just in case MG and the Planet Auto guys decide to take the comments further.

      Do like Thumper's mommy advised, "If you can't say something nice, don't say nothin' at all."

      Full marks for your enthusiasm! We’re used to video reviews of MG’s latest offerings being presented by folk who often can’t contain their scepticism about the brand and its new owners. If anything though, this review goes too far the other way as it appears all three of you have swallowed MG’s launch press pack whole and regurgitated it throughout the video for over 10mins. It gets almost sycophantic at some points and there’s accuracy issues with some of your content (e.g. the seats & dash aren’t leather). The interaction between you all is a bit cringe - one singer one song is good advice, and it would be good if the men would stop talking over the woman (and why didn’t she get a shot at driving?). Having said all that, you guys are the first to get a UK video review up from the launch, and for those of us hungry for all things MG, we thank you!

      Well, it certainly couldn't have been that bad a review cause you have yourselves a new subscriber ;-) The observations above are yours to take on board or not. And full credit to you all for putting yourselves out there and giving it a go.

      I've not driven the ZS yet, but I've been up close & personal twice at my local dealer. The looks are growing on me - casual commentary is that it's perhaps a bit too generic, but there's no doubt in my mind the car is much better looking in the metal than in photos. I think overall, the space & kit for the price is fantastic, and I sincerely hope it sells well.

      Planet Auto In reply to Anthony McGowan

      Thank you for your candid compliment sandwich, Anthony McGowan interesting take, firstly Annabelle chooses not to drive currently and we spoke as we saw fit. As for swallowing the launch pack, we had this reaction at LMS - if we can’t be passionate about MG’s in their word ‘best car yet’ when can you. The press pack was a great touch, however the only things we didn’t know about were the warranty and 1l Auto. We’ve been waiting for this for a long time and we are impressed that it’s delivered on everything it said would. If that’s cringeworthy, so be it - we love and want some as our support vehicles.

      The Faux leather is impressive, a better option than real, considering opinions.

      What exactly do you like about the car, you haven’t actually said?
