Value for money

This is a cheapest new SUV on the market in Australia it’s definitely not the best.
I’ve had my 2021 ZS Excite for 9 months now and the only issue I have is it needs more power when driving through the hills. Other things that MG should have fitted though are : Android Auto with Apple CarPlay instead of just Apple CarPlay
Adjustable steering reach as well as adjustable steering height instead of just adjustable steering height
And a more powerful 4 cylinder engine Show details

Very very average

Stay away from this very ordinary vehicle. No power, poor sound system, very tinny when doors shut. Cannot overtake another car up hills. This MG is a vehicle to avoid So glad it was just a hire car. Would never ever buy one. My New Hyundai 130 N line leaves it for dead Show details

Could be great...but currently disappointing

We had this as a hire car for a week, the first China built car I have driven. The build quality is ok, think Ford rather than Audi. The interior and dash are pretty good. But the engine, auto box and ride are all sub standard. You get what you pay for. Performance is sluggish once on the move, and steep inclines require reving the nuts off the engine, which is smooth but noisy.
The gearbox doesn't always know what gear is required. The ride is choppy. However, if these issues were addressed, by fitting a turbo to the 1•5L, a 6 speed DCT, and revised springs and dampers MG would have a pretty good product. Show details

Terrible car

Fortunately this was provided as a work car, which I handed back due to the amount of issues.
Engine misfire
Radio stopped working
Drivers window going down when asked to go up
Went back several times to central coast dealer who failed to diagnose the faults. Didn’t even have the correct diagnostic equipment.
Not very comfortable very choppy ride and the cheap pleather seats get very hot in the summer sun
Replaced with a Corolla which is better in every respect
So happy I didn’t spend my own money on this rubbish. Show details

Most Gutless Car I have ever driven

Have had this car as a rental for a couple of weeks the interior is nice but it is a terrible car to drive. The engine is too small for the size of the car making it sluggish when it goes up a hill and the brakes feel terrible in the wet. Would never in a million years buy this car, can't wait to get my normal cat back so I can ditch the rental. Show details

Safety Issue

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. Show details

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 Show details

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.
