MG's first estate car - the ZT-T - is soon to be evaluated by Police Forces across the UK in a motorway patrol demonstration programme to promote the new car for active Police duty, following the introduction of Police MG ZT Saloons.

The Zircon Silver Police specification Sportwagon is a largely standard ZT-T 190 'showroom model' which includes air conditioning, electric front windows (Police spec inhibits use of the rear windows) and comfortable seats.

The ZT's sports suspension and V6 engine produce an accomplished on-road performance characteristic that is entirely suitable for Police requirements. These features have received considerable media praise. This combines well with its versatile estate bodystyle, particularly for the traffic Police's special equipment carrying needs, which include: traffic cones, lights, road signs, first aid kits, brooms and shovels, etc.

ZT-T features a stylish tailgate with separately hinged opening rear window and rear wash wipe. Inside there is a potential 1222 litres of practical loadspace.

Gavin Thompson, MG Rover Group's Police sales manager, said: "On the basis that you need one to catch one, the MG ZT-T is precisely the dual-purpose vehicle that the traffic police require. With its powerful quad-cam V6 engine and versatile luggage capacity, the ZT-T provides the necessary combination of a sports performance car and functionality of an estate - ideal for Police forces throughout the UK."
