The ZS’s ride is unsettled at all speeds. It isn't downright crashy across ruts and potholes, but there is a lot of vertical movement, so expect plenty of head-bobbing on anything other than smooth motorways. Meanwhile, the steering is quite quick but gives little in the way of feel. Three steering modes are available: Urban, Normal and Dynamic. It’s best left in Normal, because Urban is too light and Dynamic is too artificially weighted. The ZS's handling doesn’t feel quite as limp as the Citroën C3 Aircross's, but it's still some way behind the class leaders, the Kia Stonic and Seat Arona. When you push on in the ZS, there’s a lot of body roll in corners and the traction control system seems extremely eager to cut in harshly at the slightest hint of a slipping wheel. MG's 1.5-litre petrol engine has higher CO2 emissions and worse claimed fuel economy than many of its rivals and is quite sluggish, needing to be worked hard to get up to motorway speeds. However, its power delivery is at least predictable and it’s relatively quiet at low revs. That said, while engine noise is acceptable, road and wind noise inside are far more intrusive. The better engine option is the 1.0-litre turbocharged unit, which offers peppier and more flexible acceleration that’s much better on the motorway than the breathless 1.5. A five-speed manual is the only gearbox available with the 1.5. It has a nice short throw, even if it isn't the slickest in the class. The control weights aren’t so good, though; the clutch pedal doesn’t have much travel and is quite inconsistently weighted, so it’s difficult to drive smoothly. The 1.0 is only available with an automatic gearbox, which is lethargic in its shifts but worth putting up with for the better engine.

It’s simple enough to find a comfortable driving position with even the entry-level four-way manually adjustable driver’s seat, although there’s no reach adjustment on the steering wheel. If you glance inside briefly, you could be surprised that the ZS is offered at such a low price. However, look closer and prod the dashboard and door cards, and the cost-cutting becomes apparent. The dashboard is far from inspiring, containing drab, cheap-feeling plastics, but the worst is around the transmission tunnel and handbrake, all of which is made from very hard and scratchy plastic. More impressively, an 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system comes as standard on every model and the graphics on it are crisp and clear. The screen is also very responsive to touch – more so than many other infotainment systems in the class – but it is a little fiddly to navigate the menus on the move.

The best feature about the ZS's interior is its roominess. Up front, space is good and on a par with the rest of the class, with plenty of head and leg room for the driver and passenger. Leg room in the back is certainly up there with the most spacious small SUVs, too. Similarly, the boot is an impressively large size, even taking into account the noticeable wheel arch encroachment. Indeed, the ZS has a comfortably bigger boot than that in the Seat Arona and Hyundai Kona, although the Citroën C3 Aircross beats them all in that respect.

The ZS’s low pricing and seven-year, 80,000-mile standard warranty both help the car stand out. Its list price comfortably undercuts that of rivals, making it a cheaper cash buy. However, both the ZS’s engines are behind rivals in terms of fuel economy and emissions. In addition, resale values are not expected to be as strong as those of the competition, meaning the ZS’s monthly payments are pretty close to that of its more talented contemporaries. At least standard equipment is impressive throughout the range, considering the ZS's price. Along with the infotainment touchscreen, entry-level Explore models get 15in steel wheels, Bluetooth and cruise control. Excite trim features 17in alloy wheels, air conditioning and Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring, while range-topping Exclusive adds sat-nav, a rear-view camera and a leather-style interior. Less impressive is the ZS’s safety rating. It scored three stars out of five in Euro NCAP testing – that’s poor for the class – and doesn’t get autonomous emergency braking even as an option. The Seat Arona, Hyundai Kona and Citroën C3 Aircross all get the maximum five-star rating. For all the latest reviews, advice and new car deals, sign up to the What Car? newsletter here
