MG's 2004 revisions to the ZT, scarcely constitute a new model, more a mid-life freshen up. Gone are the distinctive twin headlamp lights to be replaced by scowling single lens items.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

3.5 out of 5

MG's 2004 revisions to the ZT, scarcely constitute a new model, more a mid-life freshen up. Gone are the distinctive twin headlamp lights to be replaced by scowling single lens items. They look good in conjunction with other minor tweaks but seem to follow a trend many other manufacturers are pursuing too, so are less individual. The basic proposition of sporting comfort and considerable driver satisfaction continue. Even lesser powered models are pleasing and there's a V8 for the petrol heads. It looks good and is great to drive but will not be cheap to run from new.

What owners say...

 Space! I often carry 4 adults in the car and there is plenty of space with no lack of power. The boot is also very roomy!

 Big performance saloon that looks great and really shifts as soon as the turbo kicks in.

 Plenty of room, loads of accessories and a real "wolf in sheep's clothing".
