The MG ZT is a sporty executive car which was launched in 2001, three years after the Rover 75 of which it is based on went on sale and less than a year after the de-merger of MG Rover from BMW.

You could buy the ZT as a saloon or estate car, the latter offered 400-litres of boot space which although spacious enough for the majority of everyday family needs, lagged behind its main competitors somewhat.

Competition in the segment came from popular models like the Alfa Romeo 156, BMW 3 Series and Honda Accord.

Styling is similar to the Rover 75, although various modifications - most noticeably the wheels - make the MG ZT the more sportier of the two.
