Very Impressed so far. Zippier than I expected and plenty of built in extras.
Use my car daily - both work and private. Not serviced yet as only got it 3 weeks ago. Going really well so far and will hopefully continue to do so.

DO not buy this car
Great for first 6 months and downhill all the way from there. Dealership say they can't find anything wrong. Gave them a list of the problems including an engine that dies. Kangaroo jumps in reverse, makes terrible sound when started, tried to stop and brake didn't work, had to use hand brake to stop. Dealership had my car for 6 days and haven't called me .I called them twice. Problem is intermittent and understand can be difficult to diagnose but shouldn't be happening anyway. Engine dying is a safety issue .Car is rubbish. Customer service is atrocious.

Best car I’ve ever owned
I use my car every day and I’ve driven it on two long trips, my MG handled both trips with ease and was extremely comfortable to drive over long distances. The ride was very smooth na the drivers comfort and the comfort of the passengers was second to none. Plus it also came with MG Roadside assistance which gave us peace of mind. Great car exceeds all my expectations

So Far im impressed !
After sooo much trouble with my Asx mitsubishi 2015-16 model (that i also purchased brand new) i thought i would trade up and thats exactly what i did , After researching the MG ZS Essense 2021 its just a delight to drive im loving it so much nicer to drive and so far no troubles ,i have come up for my free 1000klm check the process with calling for a book in date was a bit long winded to be honest as the service centre closer to be just didnt call me back so i had to travel 30mins to the dealer i purchased and they responded within 24hrs via m...y email but then i did need to call to make sure of the appt , otherwise im so far all round happy car is going great and honestly alot of car for the money im just loving the panoramic sun roof ! what a feature so good for that slow cruise around the beaches ,and the kids in the back dont seem to be so closed in as the sunroof makes it feel more open for them .ive added a few extras with the window tinting ,weather shields on the windows , scuff plates and dash mat , all easy to install and makes the car look great ! Well done to MG with this model really happy ... Will update at 10,000 klms first service :)

Spends more time on a tow truck than driving
This car was meant to be a reliable , safe car. I wouldn’t call this car reliable.
It’s broken down on me 5 times within 2 years. Being towed 2 times in less than 2 years.
The first time driving along and it just come to a complete stop in the middle of school traffic, than going around a corner to my street twice and going to the shops! Very scary as it gave no warning. This was fixed due to being a crank angle sensor.
Thursday last week got it from a service picked it up at 6:40 and was broken down on the highway at 6:50 with the car comin...

- ZS Essence
Great Car Great Price
I bought an MG Essence in November of 2018 and haven't looked back. Beautifully designed, wonderful to drive and without a doubt a lot of automobile for a great price. At around 25K the Essence comes with alloy wheels, sunroof, blue tooth Apple Car play connectivity and reverse cameras among other features. Worth the test drive.
Questions & Answers
Has anyone purchased the new Mg Hs suv excite model and what are your thoughts?
Picking mine up next Monday. Will give you an update when I’ve got it. But from the test drive, I loved it.
Friend has one and says its a real disappointment - as they say "Buy Cheap . . . . Pay Twice". Buyer beware they are in fact made in China and are a bit like the first Hyundai's - they were cheap, but they were rubbish.
as an owner of 7 months and 14000k i can say im thrilled with my MG HS Essence. Best car ive ever owned by far. Moved from a Sonata HyundI Premium The MG much superior
I enjoyed reading your review. I’ve just bought the MG ZS Excited and I’m waiting for it to be delivered. Do you have a boot liner and if so where did you get it from? Were there any other accessories that you bought apart from the Excite and I’m waiting for it to be delivered. Do you have a boot liner and if so where did you get it from? Were there any other accessories that you bought apart from the Matt and the Floor mats?
Hey Trish81 I did get a tow ball. I did want a particular hitch, but because the brand and car was new at the time, the hitch I was after wasn’t available and that was the same with roof racks. It’s almost a year now that maybe different. Apart from that nothing on top of what you get with base model .... which was a lot considering the price. Happy driving.
Aliexpress has many very well prices accessories
