MG Motor Australia is further fueling the fire on the battle ground that is the small SUV market, with the introduction of the ZST. It’s powered by a 120kW engine and set to arrive in Australia in August of this year.
The highly anticipated vehicle will initially be available in two model variants, with the ZST featuring an elevated stylish design, with a premium interior cabin, as well as the latest in technology, comfort and convenience.
The new ZST also arrives equipped with the marque’s high-tech driving assistance suite, MG Pilot, as seen in its larger sibling, the MG HS.
“It’s pleasing to see how our current line-up of SUVs have been accepted and reviewed by our customers as a stylish and spacious compact SUV that’s built for the everyday and equally excited to now offer one more choice,” MG Motor Australia and New Zealand CEO Peter Ciao said.
“The ZST fit, finish and technology such as MG Pilot, 360-degree camera and virtual instrument cluster will offer a new level of comfort and premium value features to the segment and I am very much looking forward to its arrival.”
SUVs make up nearly 50 per cent of new vehicle sales in Australia, with June VFACTS results showing the spacious design continues to prove popular. The ZST joins the leading small sized SUV category, as a value-centric package for MG’s growing customer base.
Coupled with its 7-year unlimited kilometre warranty and 7-year roadside assist package, the new ZST offers solid value in the competitive SUV segment.
The new MG ZST joins the expanding MG vehicle range, which includes the popular MG3 city hatchback, the compact MG ZS SUV, the premium new MG HS, as well as the all-electric MG ZS EV, set to arrive later in the year.
Further details, including model specs and pricing of the MG ZST, will be revealed in August.
