The new MG ZST model offers a fresh new look and even higher levels of equipment and value for money.
The new MG ZST is now available at Auto class Cars, the authorised general distributor of MG cars in Qatar, on view at their showroom on Salwa Road, with a starting price of QAR51,900.
Offering premium style without the premium price tag, the first-generation MG ZS has played a major role in the company’s success across the region. With some 5,000 units sold, the original ZS helped lay the foundations for MG to expand its original line-up so that it now offers some of the most stylish, reliable and best-equipped models on the market. The new ZS range, and in particular the ZST, take this offering to a new high.
The new MG ZST is equipped with a 160 hp, 1.3L Turbo engine, delivering maximum torque of 230 Nm, and mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox for smoother acceleration. The new unit greatly improves the performance of the upgraded MG ZS. The acceleration of the 1.3L Turbo is 9.8 seconds from 0 to 100 kmph and has a top speed of 185 km/h**. It complements the fuel efficient 1.5L powerplant that delivers 6.2L/100km**.
The new models also benefit from major style enhancements outside and inside, in keeping with MG’s contemporary design language. All ZS models feature a new hexagonal grille, redesigned LED headlight and rear LED light clusters. A sportier look is conveyed by the black finish applied to the grille, headlight and fog lamp trim, rear-view mirrors, side skirts and wheels.
A key MG selling point is the availability of features that are normally found in premium cars, yet at no extra cost. The new MG ZS is no different and all trims come equipped as standard with a rear parking sensor and camera, 17” alloy wheels, a 10.1” HD touch screen with CarPlay and Android Auto, cruise control, rear airconditioning vents, keyless entry, an electric parking brake and push button start.
The MG ZST takes this value for money package on to another level, adding a state-of-the-art virtual instrument panel for the driver, a 360° surround parking camera that eliminates all blind spots, curtain airbags for extra safety and a Trophy Sports Kit that emphasises the new model’s sporty credentials. Alongside the MG ZST sits two other trim levels, both for the 1.5L variant: LUX and STD.
The interior has also been refreshed, courtesy of a new dashboard design and more extensive use of soft-touch materials, while the two-tone colour design is complemented by the red stitching and carbon fibre look interior trim. A huge panoramic sunroof is available on ZST LUX model, making life on board even more pleasant for passengers.
As a crossover, practicality remains a key requirement and here the extra-large boot with flexible configuration options certainly delivers.
The new MG ZS comes at an extremely exciting time for the brand in the region, where it has seen sales rocket over the past couple of years.
Today, MG is active in nine Middle East countries, with its current model line-up including the 2020 ‘Middle East Car of the Year’, the all-new MG HS, and the Middle East’s ‘Best Sub-compact Sedan’, the new MG5.
