    Platform and Chassis

    The MG ZS is 5-door, subcompact crossover SUV adopting a front wheel drive layout. The MG ZS is built with a rigid safety cage while the cabin uses ultra-high strength steel to absorb energy and dissipate impact.

    2022 MG ZS Chassis

    • Class – Subcompact Crossover
    • Body Style - 5-Door SUV
    • Layout - Front Engine, Front-Wheel Drive
  • Fuel Comusmption

    At full charge, the 44.5 kW/h battery pack offers 337 Km of pure EV range. A quick charge takes approximately 30 mins to charge the battery pack from 0 to 80 %, and a normal charge takes 6.5 hours from 0% - 100 %.

  • Ride Comfort

    MG ZS is fitted with MacPherson Struts up front and a torsion beam setup at the rear just like in the Honda HR-V. But with the heavy battery pack fitted down low in the chassis, the centre of gravity is significantly lower than most of its petrol-powered rivals, which should translate to a more stable and well-balanced ride.

    However, sitting on a relatively short wheelbase and a less sophisticated torsion beam rear suspension, the MG falls short when it comes to dealing with fast changing surfaces and winding roads. The suspension is soft and comfortable at lower speeds but feels a tad clumsy at higher speeds. The softer setup and higher mass present quite a pronounced level of roll under fast cornering.

  • Conclusion

    Comparing it price points with that of its rivals in its segment, The MG ZS has a lot to offer. It’s affordable enough, but it’s not exactly a bargain. Call it a “smart buy” most especially after considering what one is getting for its price tag. This is in terms of features and the overall vehicle itself. Overall, the MG ZS is a credible and affordable alternative to the well-established competition.
