The MG ZST is a budget small SUV with more oomph and lots of new updates. Morris Garages has been on a roll ever since it rebooted itself with exciting budget alternatives.
The MG ZST 2021 I tested has a new 1.3-litre, 3-cylinder, turbocharged engine that produces 160 bhp and 230 Nm of torque. In the standard version of the MG ZS, it is mated to a CVT but in this, you get a 6-speed automatic gearbox and comes with a front-wheel-drive (FWD) setup. It makes a world of a difference to ZS now with the more powerful drive system. That 1.3-litre engine is pretty powerful to give you the excitement of driving it around. MG has also worked on the chassis to make it 50% stiffer than the standard ZS and stiffer suspension mounting points.
On the inside, the new MG SUV comes with a 10.1-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, sporty seats and ample space and practicality for a small SUV.
The MG ZS Trophy is a small and affordable SUV that has been vastly improved and added more value. Priced at AED 58,800 (Approx), it offers a value proposition and great offerings at low prices.
Other small SUVs in its categories include Ford Ecosport, Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V, Chevrolet Captiva, Volkswagen Tiguan, Kia Sportage, Hyundai Creta and Nissan Juke.
