According to a recent government filing, the MG ZS petrol will also be launched in India, in addition to the MG ZS EV. Strangely, MG hasn’t announced a production plan for this SUV, and we know that importing it will make it costlier than the MG Hector which falls in a higher class.

The MG ZS would be launched in India directly in the facelifted avatar that was introduced in China recently. It will likely be sold with a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that produces 106 PS at 6,000 rpm and 141 Nm of torque at 4,500 rpm and a 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine that develops 111 PS at 5,200 rpm and 160 Nm of torque at 1,800-4,700 rpm. The 1.5-litre petrol engine could come linked to a 5-speed manual transmission, while the 1.0-litre petrol engine could be linked to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The new MG ZS has a much more appealing design with heightened aggression and more sophistication. At the front, it features a black matrix hexagonal grille, full-LED headlights consisting of 21 LED light sources and a more muscular bumper with gloss black fins. At the rear, too, there’s a sportier bumper with more pronounced outer ends and gloss black fins. The new LED tail lights feature 8 dedicated lights, and just like the LED headlamps, have a boomerang light guide.

Inside, too, the mid-cycle update has brought major changes in the MG ZS. The 2020 MG ZS petrol is differentiated from the old model with a fully digital instrument cluster, a new centre console and a 10.1-inch HD floating touch screen. The new central display has a 4:3 aspect ratio, a 170-degree viewing angle and a 20% lower colour reflectance than the old old panel.

The MG ZS petrol, if manufactured in India, could be easily priced from just around INR 10 lakh (ex-showroom). But despite the government filing, the launch remains doubtful. The MG ZS EV has been confirmed to be launched in India by December this year. After that, a three-row MG Hector was said to be launched.
