Written by Parkers on

The ZS is the best of the MG saloon bunch. As well as adding skirts, spoilers and wings, it's undergone significant chassis and suspension development by MG engineers. The result is a saloon that performs as well as it looks. On the used market, it's pricier than a Rover 45, but still good value when compared to rivals. Fast, nimble, fun to drive but not as refined as you'd like.
