Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Will make its world debut at the 2016 Guangzhou Auto Show.

MG will take the wraps off a new compact SUV at the 2016 Guangzhou Auto Show, which has been spotted prepping for the unveil at the venue. For the SUV, MG has brought back the ZS nameplate, which was first used in a sporty sedan sold in the UK from 2001-2005.

For the compact SUV, MG has brought back the ZS nameplate, which was used briefly last decade on a sedan.

Based on a shortened version of the MG GS platform, the new MG ZS will rival compact SUVs like the Nissan Juke, Ssangyong Tivoli, Buick Encore and the Hyundai ix25 (Creta). Prices are expected to stretch from 80,000 yuan to 120,000 yuan in China. Like the GS, MG will also launch the ZS in the U.K at a later time.
