The announcement comes as the Chinese brand launches another small SUV in the same segment, the MG ZST.
While the entry-level ZS Excite model has undergone the biggest price cut of $1500, the ZS Excite Plus and ZS Essence models have both been reduced by $1000. The MG ZS Anfield Edition remains unchanged at $26,990 drive-away.
Features and specifications remain the same, apart from the entry-level Excite model receiving a new set of alloy wheels.
That means the entry-level MG ZS Excite now undercuts the previous cheapest small SUV in Australia, the Haval H2 Premium, by a whole $1000.
|Model||2019 price||2020 price||Difference|
|2020 MG ZS Excite Auto||$23,490 drive away||$21,990 drive away||-$1500|
|2020 MG Excite Plus Auto||$24,990 drive away||$23,990 drive away||-$1000|
|2020 MG Essence Auto||$27,490 drive away||$26,490 drive away||-$1000|
MG plans to continue to offer the MG ZS alongside the newly introduced MG ZST for at least 12 months, as a two-pronged attack on the small SUV segment.
MG says it has sold a total of 2031 ZS SUVs since the start of 2020. As with all MGs, the ZS is covered by a seven-year, unlimited kilometre warranty.
