    About the MG ZS

    The MG ZS continues to be offered as a one-variant range, with no specification or price changes for 2024.

    The 2024 MG ZS Excite is priced from $23,990 drive-away. It was the most popular small SUV under $45,000 in Australia for 2023 – it’s worth noting the ZST and ZS EV ranges are included in this tally.

    Customers who are looking for a turbocharged engine will have to upgrade to the related MG ZST, as the ZS only comes with a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine.

    The ZS misses out on the ZST’s safety suite which includes autonomous emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear-cross traffic alert to name a few.

    It's back-to-basics in here, although the handsome steering wheel and Volkswagen-like switchgear on the doors add some glamour.

    The synthetic leather-trimmed driver's seat has height adjustment as well as tilting and sliding, but unfortunately the steering wheel only moves up and down and does not telescope.

    The centre screen is flanked by faux carbon-fibre trim, while silvery plastic inserts and soft touch points make it feel a little nicer. The vinyl seat trims are easy to keep clean.

    The back seats are relatively capacious by class standards, for adults 180cm or below. The boot is 359L with five seats in use, which is about what you'd expect of a lower small hatchback.

    A temporary space-saving spare wheel sits below the loading floor.

    A key factor behind the ZS's take-up is its design.

    It's fairly anonymous, but its curves and proportions are contemporary. Nobody will know you're in a budget SUV unless they're real car people.

    How it Drives

    Our expert take on MG ZS drivability?

    It's a pretty simple bit of kit, with electric power steering with a few modes of resistance, MacPherson strut front suspension, and a torsion beam at the rear. It has disc brakes at each end.

    It's not the final word in agile handling or cushy ride, but for those hopping out of a used vehicle should prove a pleasant enough bit of A-to-B transport.

    The 2024 MG ZS is powered by a naturally aspirated 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine producing 84kW of power and 150Nm of torque.

    It’s mated to a four-speed torque-converter automatic transmission driving the front wheels.

    MG ZS Safety Rating

    ANCAP Safety Rating Australia

    There’s no active safety technology like autonomous emergency braking available, though a full suite of active safety and driver assist features is standard on the ZST.

    Standard fit includes front, front-side, and curtain airbags, as well as a reversing camera with rear parking sensors.

    Boot space measures 359L up to the cargo cover. With the rear seats folded, this expands to 1166L measured up to the window line. The second row of seats fold down in a 60:40 split.

    Should you buy the MG ZS

    Is this the right car for you? Our experts buy or not guide.

    We won't pretend it's a class-leader, and if you prefer to spend your money on brands with long and uninterrupted periods in the market, then it's not for you.

    But if you want a new SUV for the price of rival used ones, then it's on a list of one at this price.

    Competitor Analysis

    What other cars should you look at?

    The Haval Jolion matches it on value, the Mitsubishi ASX has more space, the Toyota Yaris Cross has a hybrid option, the Mazda CX-3 offers similar style with a nicer interior, and the Hyundai Venue comes with more badge cred.
