Two lower-priced models have been added to the MG ZST range: the MG ZST Core and MG ZST Vibe.

They have a different front grille with a black high-gloss finish that frames the MG badge. The black high-gloss detailing is also on the door mirror covers, side sill inserts and foglight surrounds (the latter available for Vibe only).

Both variants have keyless entry and push-button start. There’s Apple CarPlay and Android Auto through its 10.1-inch touch screen infotainment system.

Power comes from 1.5-litre 84kW / 150Nm direct-injection four-cylinder petrol engine. It drives through a continuously variable automatic transmission driving the front wheels.
