Ginny Says

“This is going to be a huge hit with British buyers. There's a big, untapped market for a sensibly-priced five-seater hatchback and it looks as though MG will be the first brand to step up. The range looks great, the design is appealing and the price is unbeatable.”

Nicki Says

“While I like the MG5 and ZS, neither are cars that I would describe as desirable. The MG4 on the other hand looks the real deal. The design looks seriously sharp and the return to the classic hatchback shape is a good move. This really feels like a next-generation of electric car.”
