MG ZST Interior

It might be based on an older design, but the ZST’s interior seems like an alluring place to be. At least, superficially, anyway.

For starters, there’s quite a lot of real estate on offer, resulting in a decent, segment-straddling amount of space front and rear, along with a big boot behind. No doubt a generous 2585mm wheelbase helps.

Rear seat access is fine, and there’s enough room for three people to travel in sufficient comfort in the back over short distances. The windows wind all the way down too. But while there are big handy door bins, two more USB outlets, overhead grab handles and two useable map pockets, MG provides no directional air vents, rear-seat lighting, centre armrest, cupholders or coat hooks.

MG ZST Seats

The sculptured front seats look especially inviting, they provide a wide range of adjustability to help find the ideal driving position for a wide range of bodies, the cushions do a good job supporting you over long distances.

Rear seat access is fine, and while the too-low cushion isn’t that supportive, it is long; the 70/30 split backrest is surprisingly reclined (maybe too much so for some travellers), and there’s enough room for three people to travel in sufficient comfort in the back over short distances. But do watch for those protruding seatbelt latches, which hurt if you land on them. Ouch.

MG ZST Wheel Size

The MG ZST has a number of different wheel and tyre options. When it comes to tyres, these range from 215x55 R17 for SUV in 2021.

Year Body Type Front Tyre Size Front Rim Rear Tyre Size Rear Rim
2021 SUV 215x55 R17 215x55 R17
2020 SUV 215x55 R17 215x55 R17

MG ZST Boot Space

The 359-litre boot is larger than you might imagine in a small SUV, with two floor levels, side storage and a light, but no floor latching hooks. The loading lip is quite high. Folding the split rear seatbacks bumps cargo capacity up to 1187L.
