The Interior of the MG ZS EV
The interior of the MG ZS EV has been put through the test over the past three years of ownership with a young family. In this second part of the review series, we will take a closer look at how the interior of this budget electric vehicle has held up.
Recap of the Vehicle
Before delving into the interior details, let’s recap on the MG ZS EV. This is the first generation of the vehicle, and it was purchased in Brisbane in November 2020. However, it’s important to note that this particular model is a 2017 release, making it relatively outdated in terms of technology. Nonetheless, it has proven to be a reliable and efficient choice for our family’s needs.
Considering its budget-friendly nature, the interior of the MG ZS EV has surpassed our expectations. The materials used are of decent quality, and there have been no major issues with durability or wear and tear. The seats have held up well, providing adequate comfort for both short and long journeys.
Design and Layout
The design and layout of the interior are practical and functional. The dashboard features a clean and straightforward design, with all controls easily accessible. The infotainment system, although not the most advanced in today’s market, is user-friendly and provides all the necessary features such as navigation and music streaming.
Space and Versatility
One of the remarkable aspects of the MG ZS EV’s interior is its ample space and versatility. Despite being a compact SUV, it offers sufficient legroom and headroom for all passengers, including those sitting in the rear seats. The boot space is generous, allowing for luggage or grocery shopping without any hassle. The rear seats can also be folded down to create additional storage space when needed.
Technology and Connectivity
In terms of technology and connectivity, the MG ZS EV may not be at the cutting edge, but it does offer essential features. Bluetooth connectivity, USB ports, and smartphone integration are available, allowing occupants to stay connected and entertained while on the go. The sound system is decent, providing a satisfactory audio experience.
The Interior of the MG ZS EV
The interior of the MG ZS EV is nothing special or remarkable, and for some people, that’s exactly what they like. Unlike other electric vehicles that have a futuristic and spaceship-like appearance, the ZS EV has a design that resembles a normal vehicle. This was one of the attractions for me when I was looking for an electric car.
Comfort and Functionality
Sitting inside the ZS EV, you’ll find that it offers a comfortable and functional interior. The seats are supportive, and there is enough legroom and headroom for both the driver and passengers. The cabin is well-designed, with all the controls and buttons easily accessible.
One feature that has worked flawlessly in the ZS EV is the HVAC system. The air conditioning and heating have been working really well, providing a comfortable environment to drive in. Whether it’s a hot and humid day or a chilly winter morning, the climate control system in the ZS EV has performed excellently.
Storage and Practicality
When it comes to storage and practicality, the ZS EV offers a decent amount of space. The 448-liter boot capacity is sufficient for everyday use and can easily accommodate groceries, shopping bags, or luggage for a weekend getaway. The rear seats can also be folded down to create additional space when needed.
One thing worth mentioning is the absence of a spare tire in the ZS EV. Instead, it comes with a tire repair kit, which might not be ideal for some drivers. However, it does help in saving space and weight, making the car more efficient.
Infotainment and Technology
The infotainment system in the ZS EV is adequate, but it lacks some of the advanced features found in newer models. The touchscreen display is responsive and easy to navigate, but the graphics and overall interface could be more modern. It supports Bluetooth connectivity, allowing you to pair your phone and make hands-free calls or stream music.
In terms of safety technology, the ZS EV comes with features like rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, and electronic stability control. These features provide added peace of mind while driving, especially in busy city streets or tight parking spaces.
Buttons and switches
The buttons and switches in the MG ZS EV are pretty standard. There’s nothing revolutionary or groundbreaking here. The functionality on the screen is minimal, but the buttons and other controls on the steering wheel are good. The indicator stalks work well, although it’s worth mentioning that they are European-style, with the headlights on the left and the wipers on the right. However, overall, there are no problems with any of these features.
Air vents and switch gear
The air vents in the MG ZS EV are all working well, providing the much-needed airflow inside the car. The switch gear, including the various controls and buttons, function properly with no issues. The dash is made of a durable vinyl material, which has proven to be hard-wearing over time. To maintain its condition, an aftermarket protection has been added to keep it neat. The mirrors and other components attached to the dash are also in good shape, with no signs of wear and tear or loose parts.
Glove box and storage
The glove box in the MG ZS EV is functioning as it should be, offering ample space for storing essentials and other items. There have been no reported problems or issues with the glove box or any other storage compartments in the car. Even with regular use, everything remains intact and in working order. This speaks to the quality and reliability of the vehicle.
Interior materials and durability
The interior of the MG ZS EV has a lot of hard plastic features, which is expected in a budget car. However, despite being made of this material, the interior has proven to be quite durable. Even after three years of being subjected to family punishment, there are no noticeable marks or damage on the hard plastic surfaces. The soft vinyl areas, such as the seats, have also held up well, showing no signs of wear and tear.
The Issue with Glass
The MG ZS EV may have a good overall look and feel, but there is one major drawback: the glass. Unfortunately, the glass in this car lacks proper UV protection, which may cause discomfort and potential harm if exposed to direct sunlight for an extended period. It is highly recommended to tint the windows if you purchase a secondhand model without existing window tints.
Solutions to Combat Glare and Rain
One week after purchasing the car, we wasted no time in getting a high-quality tint installed. Additionally, we invested in external visors to further reduce glare and protect against rain. These minor modifications made a significant difference, both in terms of driving comfort and safety. The tinting brings the height of the glass down, preventing excessive glare from entering the cabin and also acting as a barrier against rain.
The Seat Dilemma
While the driving position is commendable, the seats themselves are a different story. They are electronically adjustable for height and position but lack support for the lower back. The foam used in the seats is of a cheaper quality, which makes them quite hard and uncomfortable, especially during long trips. To alleviate this, it is essential to experiment with different seating positions to find the most comfortable one for your back. On the upside, the headrest is adjustable, unlike some other car models, making it less annoying for the driver and passengers.
The Seats and Comfort
My wife has been particularly bothered by the seats in the MG ZS EV. She often complains about experiencing neck pain while driving in this car. While the seats are perfectly fine for short trips around town, they become uncomfortable on long road trips. We have taken this car from Brisbane to Sydney and back, and during those journeys, we found it necessary to stop and stretch more frequently. The seats are not the most comfortable, so it’s something to keep in mind if you plan on taking long drives.
The Screens and Software
Moving on to the interior features, let’s talk about the screens and software in the MG ZS EV. Unfortunately, they are not anything to write home about. The screens are unimpressive, and the software in these cars is lackluster. While it does its job, it’s essential to remember that this is a 2017 model, and in 2023, comparing it to newer cars, it falls behind. In our forthcoming video, we will provide an overall wrap-up and discuss whether we would purchase this car again. We will highlight the top five things we like and dislike about it. But for now, let’s focus on the screens and software.
The response time of the screen is slow, which is expected for a technology from 2017. It can be frustrating when you’re trying to navigate through the system, and it takes longer than you’d anticipate for the screen to respond. Additionally, the software can be glitchy. While the majority of the time it works fine, there are instances when it requires a complete shutdown and reboot of the infotainment system. This can be quite frustrating when you’re in a hurry or in the middle of using a particular feature.
Infotainment System and Connectivity
The infotainment system of the MG ZS EV, considering its age, is not up to par with the systems found in newer cars. However, when we purchased the car three years ago, it was deemed acceptable at the time. Comparing it to current models, the system falls short. It does feature two USB ports in the front and one in the back, which have proven to be problem-free. However, it is important to note that this car is not a connected vehicle. It does not have a SIM card or any internet connectivity. The only form of connectivity is the built-in navigation system, which relies on satellite technology. Considering its 2017 specifications, this is expected.
Sunroof and Interior Lighting
In the first video, I spoke about our satisfaction with the sunroof in the MG ZS EV. It has a fabric screen that effectively blocks out heat and harmful UV rays. Additionally, it provides a bit of extra head space, which was a pleasant surprise upon purchasing the car. We have not encountered any issues with the sunroof thus far. However, one area where the MG ZS EV falls short is the interior lighting. It only has two small incandescent bulbs, which are dimmer than a candle. To rectify this, I replaced them with larger LED bulbs. If I manage to film a video, I will include screenshots or shots showcasing the difference. It is recommended that owners replace the incandescent bulbs with LED ones, as they provide better illumination.
Improved Interior Lighting
One of the major drawbacks of the MG ZS EV is its lack of interior lighting. It is particularly noticeable in the back seat, where there is absolutely no light whatsoever. This can be a real challenge, especially when traveling with young kids at night. But fear not, as I have found a solution to this problem.
DIY Lighting Solution
If you’re handy and willing to do some DIY work, you can improve the interior lighting in the MG ZS EV yourself. I have installed some lights in the back, and it has made a world of difference. By tinkering around a bit, you can achieve the same results.
No Lights in the Back
However, if you’re not the DIY type, you should be aware that the MG ZS EV does not come with any lights in the back. This is a major oversight by the manufacturer and can make traveling in the dark quite inconvenient.
In addition to the lights in the back, I have also installed some puddle lights in the footwells of the MG ZS EV. These lights not only enhance the interior ambiance but also provide practical benefits. They are easy to install, as I simply tapped into the wire in the roof where the courtesy light was located.
MG’s Interior Lighting Shortfall
While my modifications have significantly improved the interior lighting in the MG ZS EV, it is disappointing that the manufacturer did not address this issue in the first place. The car could have had better lighting from the start, saving owners the hassle of having to make changes themselves.
Overall, the MG ZS EV has survived three years of family punishment, but its interior lighting is a letdown. With some DIY modifications, however, you can transform the car into a more practical and comfortable space, ensuring a better driving experience for you and your family.
The Interior of the MG ZS EV
Durable Mats and Carpets
We have been using the genuine MG mats in our MG ZS EV for the past three years. These mats were purchased as an aftermarket accessory, and they have held up well despite the daily in and out of our family. The carpets underneath the mats are still in good condition, thanks to the protection they provide. We are pleased to see that all the interior components have remained in good shape.
Seat Covers and Vinyl Seats
To protect the seats, we have been using seat covers. Although we regret not cleaning the car before recording this video, you can see that the seats underneath the covers are in decent condition. The seats in the MG ZS EV are made of vinyl, and the stitching has held up well. However, they are a bit hard, which might be a point of concern for some. So far, there have been no tears or damage to the seats, but we speculate that the driver’s seat may experience more wear and tear over time.
Durable Rubber Components
In a previous video, we mentioned being impressed with the rubbers in the MG ZS EV, and we are happy to report that they are still in great condition. These rubbers have proven to be durable, even with our kids constantly getting in and out of the car. They twist, screw, and sometimes even spike these rubbers, but they haven’t broken or shown any signs of wear. We commend the quality of these rubbers and their ability to withstand the punishment inflicted upon them by our family.
The rubbers and seat covers mentioned earlier are examples of the aftermarket accessories we have added to our MG ZS EV. These accessories have enhanced the durability and functionality of the car. If you’re interested in seeing more of the accessories we have installed, you can check out the video linked above.
In conclusion, the interior of the MG ZS EV has proven to be resilient and reliable over the past three years of family use. The mats, carpets, seats, and rubber components have all held up well, showcasing the durability of the car’s interior. We are satisfied with how the MG ZS EV has survived the daily punishment of family life thus far.
Interior Design and Durability
The interior of the MG ZS EV has proven to be quite durable, considering it has survived three years of family punishment. One notable feature is the cool-looking light that illuminates the doors at night. Despite being made of plastic, the doors have held up well over time, showing minimal signs of wear and tear. This is especially impressive considering the amount of use they have seen over the years.
In addition to its durability, the MG ZS EV offers some handy features for everyday life. For instance, there is a slot for hand sanitizer, which has become essential in today’s world. As a bonus, the reviewer mentions a tap opener that they keep in the car. This device allows them to easily access water in public places where the taps may not have handles. It’s a small detail, but it shows how the car’s design considers practicality and convenience.
The Back Seat Experience
Moving to the back of the car, it becomes apparent that the reviewer has child seats installed, making it difficult for them to demonstrate the access to the back seats. However, they note that despite the rough treatment from the kids, the back door remains intact with no signs of damage. Stickers may have been applied, but the door itself has withstood the test of time.
Durable Rubber Components
The rubber components, such as the door trim and seals, have also held up well. Although there are visible scuff marks from the kids coming in and out of the car with sand and other debris, the rubber parts are still functioning as intended. This demonstrates the car’s ability to withstand the wear and tear of everyday family life.
In conclusion, the MG ZS EV’s interior has proven to be both durable and practical. The plastic doors have held up well, despite years of use, and the rubber components show minimal signs of damage. The car’s design also considers everyday convenience, with features like a hand sanitizer slot and a tap opener. Overall, the interior of this budget EV has surpassed expectations in terms of durability and functionality.
The Seats and Storage
The first thing to note about the interior of the MG ZS EV after three years of family use is the condition of the seats. Despite the constant wear and tear from the kids, the seats have held up remarkably well. We have put a cover on them to protect them from spills and stains, and it has done its job effectively. The kids have used the various storage compartments to keep their belongings, such as pencils and toys. However, the back of the seats has borne the brunt of the family punishment, with lots of kicking and dirty scuffed shoes leaving their mark. But to our relief, nothing is torn or broken, which is a testament to the durability of the materials used.
Moving on to the smaller details, there was only one minor breakage inside the car. A little rubber cover on the USB port snapped off, but it doesn’t concern us in the slightest. It is a minor inconvenience, and we are not worried about it affecting the functionality of the car. Overall, the interior has held up well, especially considering it is a budget electric vehicle.
Interior Lighting Upgrades
One area where we made an aftermarket upgrade is the interior lighting. The MG ZS EV lacks proper interior lighting, so we decided to install our own. We put in a light in the middle of the grab handle, which required carefully pulling out the foam hood lining and creating a neat hole for the wiring. Now, we have a functional interior light that is connected to the front courtesy line. The kids can individually turn it on or off, which has made a significant difference in our vehicle. It may not be something that everyone can do, but it has greatly improved the practicality of our MG ZS EV.
Boot Interior and Camping Adventures
Now, let’s take a look at the interior of the boot and how it has held up during our camping and road trips. Starting at the top, we find ample space for storage and luggage. The boot has been subjected to heavy use, with camping gear and all our road trip essentials being packed and unpacked multiple times. Despite this, there are no visible signs of wear or damage. The interior of the boot has remained intact and durable, showcasing the quality of construction and materials.
In conclusion, the MG ZS EV has proven itself to be a budget-friendly electric vehicle that can withstand the demands of a family’s daily life and adventures. The seats and storage compartments have held up well, with only minor breakages. The addition of aftermarket interior lighting has greatly improved the overall functionality of the car. Lastly, the boot interior has withstood the test of time and numerous road trips without any visible signs of wear or damage. Overall, the interior of the MG ZS EV has survived three years of family punishment admirably.
All the rubbers and seals have held up well
The first thing I noticed when inspecting the interior of the MG ZS EV after three years of family use was that all the rubbers and seals have held up really well. Despite being subjected to the wear and tear of daily life, there were no signs of damage or deterioration. This is a good sign, as it means that the car has been built to withstand the rigors of family use.
No issues with the lock and struts
Another aspect of the interior that impressed me was the lock and struts. There were no problems with the lock, and the struts on either side were still nice and strong. This is important, as a malfunctioning lock or weak struts can be a source of frustration and inconvenience. It’s reassuring to know that these essential components are in good working order.
A broken part and a cheap fix
However, there was one broken part that caught my attention. One of the plastic components had snapped off. This was understandable, considering the lightweight nature of the material. It happened when we were trying to remove some items from the car and accidentally yanked on it. Thankfully, MG parts are inexpensive, and I was able to find a replacement on eBay for just 20 cents. It was a simple matter of pushing the new part in, and now everything is back in order.
Poor lighting and a DIY improvement
One area where the MG ZS EV could use some improvement is the lighting in the boot. It is quite dim, making it difficult to see clearly. To address this issue, I decided to replace the outdated incandescent bulb with an LED. While the new lighting is an improvement, it is still not as bright as I would like it to be. It’s not a major issue, but it would be nice to have better visibility in the boot, especially when searching for items in the dark.
No 12V outlet, but that’s understandable
Finally, one feature that the MG ZS EV lacks is a 12V outlet in the boot. This is something that I had considered adding myself, as it would be convenient to have a power source in that area. However, considering that this is a budget vehicle, it’s understandable that certain features may be omitted. While it would have been a nice addition, it’s not a deal-breaker, especially considering the other positive aspects of the car.
In conclusion, the interior of the MG ZS EV has held up well to three years of family use. The majority of components, such as rubbers and seals, are in good condition, demonstrating the car’s durability. Despite a broken part and some minor lighting issues, overall, the interior is functional and suitable for everyday use. While it may lack certain features, it still serves its purpose as an affordable electric vehicle option for families.
The MG ZS EV’s interior has undergone three years of family punishment, and despite some minor issues, it has held up well overall. The carpet has proven to be resilient, showing only minimal wear and tear. Even with the weight of items such as a fire extinguisher, the carpet has remained in good condition.
There are small nets in the car that were a cause for concern, but they have managed to withstand the family’s use without any problems. A slight looseness in one area can be attributed to a previous modification when installing a light. However, this does not affect the overall functionality of the car.
The MG ZS EV comes with an aftermarket mat to protect the bottom board, which has remained in excellent condition. Additionally, under the mat, there is a space for a spare wheel, though it has not been needed during the three-year period. The car has not experienced any mechanical issues or damage to its interior components.
Longevity of Features
The interior features of the MG ZS EV have proven to be long-lasting and reliable. Nothing has come loose or broken over the three-year span, indicating the car’s solid build quality. The rubber trim on the edges of the interior is still in good condition, despite continuous scuffing and the presence of a dog who frequently jumps in and out of the car.
