MG Astor / ZS EV facelift patent images leaked

The MG Astor and ZS EV are expected to get similar design updates.

Patent images of the facelift version of the MG Astor and its all-electric version, the ZS EV, have leaked online.

The MG Astor is expected to get a major makeover. Images reveal a redesigned front fascia featuring a new grille and headlamp clusters. The bumper has also been reworked and now gets large intakes on either side.

The ZS EV is likely to get the same updates as well, albeit with a blanked-out front grille and different alloy wheels. That being said, the car's side profile looks similar to the outgoing version.

Currently, the MG Astor is available with two engine options. These include a 1.3-litre turbo-petrol unit producing 138 BHP and 230 Nm and a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated motor that puts out 109 BHP and 144 Nm.

In India, the ZS EV comes with a 50.3 kWh battery and an electric motor with an output of 174 BHP and 353 Nm. The battery offers a maximum range of 461 km on a single charge. MG claims a 0-100 km/h time of 8.5 seconds.
