Background

The MG ZS revives an old name for a new type of car. Whereas the 2000s ZS was a revved-up Rover 45 given the MG treatment, in the new Chinese-owned era it's the name for the company's new small SUV. Think of it as a rival to the popular Nissan Juke and Vauxhall Mokka X. For more information on the MG ZS, click on our further stories on the links below.

60sec road test

We've had a quick test of the new 2017-on MG ZS in China ahead of its UK launch in September 2017. The early signs are promising: this is a junior crossover of a similar size to a Honda HR-V - and the boot and interior accommodation are surprisingly generous by class standards. The cabin suffers from some cheap plastics, as you may expect at this price point (it's likely to cost from around £13,000 in the UK) and MG isn't renowned for its high-quality interiors. But it is a decent drive, judging by our early review. Performance is eager enough for this class and the ride and handling felt promising on a quick blat around an SAIC test track in China. We'll publish a full UK review in due course...
