2022 MG ZS Turbo: An outstanding compact SUV

A contemporary design and punchy drive characterize the MG ZS Turbo which, though designed and built with British heritage in mind, has already proved its popularity in the Middle East.

This striking crossover offers more equipment than ever, with an upgraded engine, additional styling features and the very latest in technology. This inspiring vehicle is as ambitious and energetic as an MG gets, filling your motoring life with a ‘do more’ spirit, a joie de vivre, and plenty of adventures.

2022 MG ZS Turbo Specs:

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 1.3Turbo is 9.8seconds from 0 to 100 kmph and has a top speed of 185 km/h**.

We tried to test this claim of 9.8 seconds at a closed course but managed only a best time of 15 seconds. Well if you buy an MG ZS Turbo, you certainly wont be taking it to the drag strip. So no love lost here.

What the 2022 MG ZS Turbo takes full points in, is the fuel economy. On the highway you can expect to get 17 kilometers per liter and while inside the city, it still does wonders with 13 kilometers per liter.

2022 MG ZS Turbo Exterior:

The new models benefit from major style enhancements on both 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, while 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 more normally found in premium cars, yet at no extra cost. 2022 MG ZS Turbo

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 air conditioning vents, keyless entry, an electric parking brake and push button start.

2022 MG ZS Turbo Interior:

The interior has also been refreshed, most noticeably 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.

2022 MG ZS Turbo Safety Features:

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 360o surround parking camera that eliminates all blind spots, curtain airbags for extra safety and a Trophy Sports Kit that emphasizes the new model’s sporty credentials. Alongside the MG ZST sit two other trim levels, both for the 1.5L variant: LUX and STD.
