The popular MG ZST small SUV line will gain two new entry-level variants, bringing the starting price down to $25,490 drive-away.
Available to order now, the new Core and Vibe will arrive in June with strong safety and equipment lists, as well as sharp drive-away pricing.
Features such as the MG Pilot active safety suite (AEB, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control), a surround-view camera, LED headlights, a 10.1-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and alloy wheels are standard across the range.
The 2021 MG ZST Core ($25,490 drive-away) will get the following as standard:
- 17-inch Alloy wheels
- 10.1-inch colour touchscreen with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto
- Centre armrest
- Fabric seats
- Full-grain leather steering wheel with contrast stitching
- 1.5L petrol engine with CVT
- 360-degree camera system
- Keyless entry and push-button start
- LED headlights and tail lights
- MG Pilot driver safety suite
- Driver’s 6-way manually-adjustable seat
- Passenger’s 4-way manually-adjustable seat
- 4-speaker sound system
Moving up to the 2021 MG ZST Vibe ($26,990 drive-away) adds the following:
- 17-inch two-tone machined alloy wheels
- 6-speaker sound system
- Rain-sensing wipers
- Front fog lights
- Satellite navigation
- Leatherette upholstery
Both the Core and Vibe grades will offer the same colour palette as the existing Excite ($29,990 drive-away) and Essence ($32,990 drive-away), including York White and Pebble Black (standard) as well as Brighton Blue, Diamond Red, and Sloane Silver ($500).
Power in the two new grades of ZST comes from a 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine developing 84kW and 150Nm, driving the front wheels via a CVT.
It’s the same engine powering versions of the older ZS, albeit with a CVT in place of a four-speed auto.
Like the wider petrol-powered MG range, the ZST Core and Vibe models are covered by a seven-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty.
