MG ZS SUV slated to be released in China in April

According to this China based website the MG ZS SUV is due to be released in China in April so I wonder when the UK version is due to be released?

MG ZS SUV Is Getting Ready For The Chinese Auto Market

Published on January 16, 2017 by Tycho de Feijter




Spy Shots showing the production version of the new MG ZS SUV, looking clean but not very mean in this rather boring silver paint job. The ZS debuted as a semi-concept on the Guangzhou Auto Show, the production car will be launched on the Chinese car market in April.



There will be two engines available: a 1.5 with 120hp and 150nm mated to a six-speed automatic or a six-speed manual, and a brand new 1.0 3-cylinder turbo with 125hp and 170nm. The former will be mated to a four-speed (04) automatic or a five-speed (05) manual, and the latter will be mated to a six-speed automatic or a six-speed DCT. The ZS is front-wheel drive only.


Size: 4303/1814/1630, and wheelbase is 2585.


Price is expected to range from around 80.000 to 120.000 yuan.


The MG brand, with its sister brand Roewe, is owned by the Shanghai Auto Industry Corporation (SAIC).




Another car with very hip seats and red stitching on the lever of the DCT, and it has red air vents!



This is the automatic again. Touch screen seems to be 10-incher. Very few buttons so the infotainment system will take care of most functionalities, except the aircon.



And lastly the manual version, beige seats and a different aircon control system.



Seen from above, showing the extra large sun roof.

We need to see this in the UK quite soon after the Chinese launch.

If they follow the same pattern as the 3 and 6 it will be out of date by the time it gets here.

Hopefully the price/spec will be competitive as I fully expect this to replace my MG3.

i think that it could be an July-August launch for October deliveries

Given that the MG web site has stated that the new compact SUV car will be launched in the U.K some time in 2017 I am guessing that the car will be first revealed at the London motor show in May, then officially launched for the U.K in July-August with first deliveries in October.

The MG ZS already has its' own web page in China

It looks like the MG ZS might be coming to China sooner than April as the car already has a web page dedicated to it plus they are possibly running some sort of creative show competition/promotion for it:
