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.
