MG ZS gets 2020 redesign

Published 06 July 2020

MG's best-selling car, the ZS crossover, has been facelifted with revised styling, a new interior and new specification for 2020. The MG ZS is available to order now from £15,495.

The Kia Stonic and Hyundai Kona rival has been revealed with exterior changes, including new headlights, bumpers and alloy wheel designs.

The line up consists of Excite and Exclusive trims, both equipped with electric folding door mirrors, LED headlights and a driver's armrest. Exclusive-trim models also get touchscreen navigation, a 360-degree reversing camera, blind spot monitoring, a digital instrument cluster and heated front seats.

Inside, there's a new dashboard design with more soft-touch materials, and a 10.1-inch touchscreen - which can be found in MG's larger HS model. This offers DAB, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard.

From launch, the new ZS will only be available with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and five-speed manual gearbox. Automatic versions are said to follow, but the 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol is no longer offered. CO2 emissions are 155g/km, with a claimed 41.4mpg combined fuel economy.

The fully electric ZS EV will also remain on sale, possibly with a similar new look - which will likely be announced soon.

The MG ZS still comes with a seven-year warranty. Excite models start at £15,495, with the Exclusive trim seeing a £17,795 price tag.

Because they support thousands of Jobs in the UK & Hong Kong was a hangover from the UK's Colonial Days when our Grandfathers Killed Thousands of Chinese People! Yes what the Chinese GOV is doing is WRONG but so are the Riots.

When the Chinese have bankrupted the rest of their competition they can then up the prices and hold the rest of the world to ransom. While our manufacturing industry turns to being just distributors of Chinese manufactured goods. Unfortunately most people think cheap is good, reviews of products hardly ever mention that the PRC made the item, and the British company that is selling the item had nothing to do with the manufacturing of it. Rarely there are some British designers, but these then get labeled as "Designed and Engineered in Britain" with a Union Jack, no mention that the Chinese made it! Many people still think we manufacture these goods, plus the fact that a great deal of the products are just genetic models that established British companies sell as if they made it. My neighbour bought his MG thinking it was at least assembled in Britain.

I don't see how the Chinese support of thousands of jobs in the UK is warranted, long term the aim is to eliminate the competition. Buy up the British brand and then transfer any production to China, wake up!
