NOW EVERYONE CAN OWN – AND ENJOY – AN MG
MG is back! The iconic British sports car marque is now available in Qatar, and you can judge the best of the attractive new range of models by taking the versatile ZS for a test drive at Auto Class Cars, the exclusive agent on Salwa Road.
The MG ZS is a compact SUV, made for modern, professional people who aspire to all the benefits of modern motoring but also wish to keep control of all the associated costs.
The all-new ZS starts to satisfy these requirements as soon as you set eyes on it, either on the road or in the showroom. The paintwork and chrome gleam like a luxury car and the same can be said for the fit and finish – build quality is really good. The ZS looks sharp and it looks classy, maybe even cute, plus its clean lines and compact size make you think it is not going to incur extravagant costs.
The ‘old’ MG was a range of sports cars that also offered value for money, and the new MG range of compact cars and SUVs certainly does that; the MG cars and SUVs may indeed give the most value for money available anywhere in Qatar at this point in time.
From the extremely attractive purchase price to the daily running costs – now more important as petrol prices continue to increase every month – the new MG is truly hard to beat.
Sitting in the ZS cabin, you may even feel upper class. There is attractive double-stitched leather trim and two cool-looking retro air vents on the dashboard. The leather wheel looks and feels great in your hands, too. In addition, the state-of-the-art infotainment system – with a great 8″ screen – gives out great sound from its four speakers.
Go for a test drive and you’ll find the ZS to be practical, family friendly and very comfortable. Indeed, the cabin looks classy with leather trim and easy-to-use infotainment with a large, colourful screen; choose one of the three driving modes that suits your mood whether that’s sporty or relaxed.
Drive it with spirit and you’ll be rewarded. There’s little body roll in corners and the suspension is good for Doha, coping well with different surfaces and all those speed bumps! However you drive, the advanced safety systems, precise steering, all-round disc brakes and panoramic vision all combine to provide a stress-free and comfortable drive for you and your family.
