TURBO-DIESEL POWERS THE LATEST MG ZS

MG has announced the introduction of a new turbo-diesel engine to power the popular MG ZS range. Combining the appeal of its accomplished sporty chassis dynamics with high-economic operation and crucially lower CO2 emissions, the new engine installation completes the full range of diesel engines now available across the MG saloon range from the ZR turbo-diesel to the ZT CDTi.

The MG ZS has until now been offered with powerful K series petrol engines in 120 and 180Ps outputs. The introduction of the 101Ps turbo-diesel provides high levels of torque 240Nm@2000rpm for good performance (0-60mph in 10.3secs and a 116mph top speed) and economy (a potential of 66.4mpg on the Extra-urban cycle). The ZS turbo-diesel is available in both the 5-door hatchback and 4-door saloon, with prices starting at 13,195 for the turbo-diesel hatchback.

The new ZS models will be available in both saloon and hatchback bodystyles, in two trim specifications ZS turbo-diesel and ZS+ turbo-diesel, the latter additionally featuring CFC-free air conditioning, electric front windows and Rhodium coloured rear bootlid ZS badging.
