MG ZS to reach markets outside China.
The MG ZS was unveiled last November in China and has now reached Thailand for testing. The MG ZS looks like it is set to hit the Thai market this year. MG Motor could use the 'XS' brand on the car, like in the UK.
Targeted at young first-time car buyers, the MG ZS is the company's product in the B-segment and competes with the likes of Ford EcoSport and Hyundai ix25 (Hyundai Creta) depending on the market. The sub-compact SUV is based on a shortened version of the MG GS's platform.
The MG ZS measures 4,314 mm in length, 1,809 mm in width and 1,624 mm/1,648 mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,585 mm. It is available with two engine options: 1.5-litre NSE Plus and 1.0-litre TGI SUPER. The 1.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine produces 88 kW (117.96 hp) and 150 Nm of torque, while the 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine develops 92 kW (123.32 hp) and 170 Nm of torque. A 168 hp 1.5-litre turbocharged engine will join the roster later.
Automatic headlamps, LED daytime running lights, heated mirrors, panoramic sunroof, leather steering wheel, cruise control, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, 4G and WiFi and 6-speaker sound system are some of the key features of the MG ZS which starts at 73,800 yuan (INR 6,95,216.23) in China.
