Where's the ZS Petrol going to sit if launched here? Above the Hector? Will the market accept a smaller car for a higher price?

It will sit below the Hector, in the seltos/creta segment, as a compact SUV.

Default More affordable MG cars are coming

With the first couple of MG SUVs – the Hector and the ZS EV – successfully off the blocks, and the third and fourth products – the Gloster SUV and the G10 MPV – already lined up, MG is looking at more mainstream models.

The fifth and sixth products won’t be mass-market cars in the strictest sense of the word, but they will be more affordable and appeal to a wider audience. The big one is likely to be MG’s Creta rival, the ZS. The car is likely to come with a facelift and will be powered by 1.0 and 1.3-litre petrol engines. The 1.3 puts out an impressive 125hp and 230Nm of torque, and with the 1.0 three-cylinder putting out 111hp and 160Nm of torque, MG should have a good spread.

Also on the cards is the Maruti Ertiga and Mahindra Marazzo-rivaling 360M. Showcased at the Auto Expo recently, it is longer than even the Marazzo and stretches the tape at 4,615mm. Maruti Ertiga’s measures only 4,395mm in comparison. A bit more spacious on the inside, the MPV is built on a wheelbase that is 10mm longer and is likely to be powered by the same 1.5-litre turbo-petrol found under the bonnet of the Hector. Likely to come with similar gearbox options as well as an option of a 48V mild-hybrid system for better fuel economy, MG could even slot the FCA or Jeep 2.0-litre diesel under the hood.

In addition, MG is also seriously looking at a 3- or 4-seat version of the E200 EV, also showcased at the Auto Expo. Basically a Smart-sized car measuring an extremely short 2.5m, MG says it can sell it in India for under Rs 10 lakh.
Its a good thing that the ZS is getting newer engines as the 1.5 Petrol is not exciting. Hopefully MG takes the feedback for G10 and we get to see some design changes as well. The Gloster will be an interesting launch. Waiting to see what it'll be pitted against.

From all the cars at the MG pavillion the one that looked the best and the most promising was the MG6. Even more so since it was the eMG6 PHEV.

This was the perfect size between an Octavia and Superb. Had decent performance on paper and was hybrid with Plug in option.

Was the perfect bridge between both worlds, looked the best and much needed option in this SUV craze.

The MG6 looks really clean and classy. It can really give a good fight to the Civic, Elantra, next gen Octavia as well as sway people away from SUV's.

With it's competitive pricing even if slightly more than the ZS EV, it will work well at around the 22-25L price tag.

I much preferred this eMG6 over the RC6 they had on the other side which was like a frankenstein.
