This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest MG ZT Saloon (04-05) review.

Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

If this car had been fitted with side airbags as standard (they're optional), it would have been awarded five stars by Euro NCAP. But it still gained a four-star rating - a very respectable score. Good security equipment - joy riders may like the look but they won't get a spin in one unless you leave them the keys.

Roomy enough for the driver and three passengers, but not a fourth. Boot is not especially big, but features a split-folding rear seat to increase practicality. For ultimate carrying capacity pick the ZT-T.
