Spy Shots showing the production version of the new MG ZS SUV, looking clean but not very mean in this rather boring silver paint job. The ZS debuted as a semi-concept on the Guangzhou Auto Show, the production car will be launched on the Chinese car market in April.
There will be two engines available: a 1.5 with 120hp and 150nm mated to a six-speed automatic or a six-speed manual, and a brand new 1.0 3-cylinder turbo with 125hp and 170nm. The former will be mated to a four-speed (04) automatic or a five-speed (05) manual, and the latter will be mated to a six-speed automatic or a six-speed DCT. The ZS is front-wheel drive only.
Size: 4303/1814/1630, and wheelbase is 2585.
Price is expected to range from around 80.000 to 120.000 yuan.
Best photos of the interior so far; round air vents, floor mats with a racy red edge, leather on the dash, amd a piano black center tunnel and stack. This is the version with the automatic.
Another car with very hip seats and red stitching on the lever of the DCT, and it has red air vents!
This is the automatic again. Touch screen seems to be 10-incher. Very few buttons so the infotainment system will take care of most functionalities, except the aircon.
And lastly the manual version, beige seats and a different aircon control system.
