2024 MG ZS price and specs

The MG ZS continues to be offered as a one-variant range, with no specification or price changes for 2024.

The 2024 MG ZS Excite is priced from $23,990 drive-away. It was the most popular small SUV under $45,000 in Australia for 2023 – it’s worth noting the ZST and ZS EV ranges are included in this tally.

Customers who are looking for a turbocharged engine will have to upgrade to the related MG ZST, as the ZS only comes with a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine.

The ZS misses out on the ZST’s safety suite which includes autonomous emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear-cross traffic alert to name a few.

For 2023, MG Motor Australia sold 29,258 units of its ZS, ZST and ZS EV. The MG ZS range saw a 30.2 per cent increase in sales for 2023.

MG holds 19.9 per cent market share (up from 18.5 per cent) in the mainstream small SUV segment. The ZS range outsells rivals like the Mazda CX-30 (13,115), GWM Haval Jolion (11,252) and Hyundai Kona (11,183).
