WHEN WE FIRST SAW OUR CAR IT WAS LUST AT FIRST SIGHT!
We walked into the showroom and there it was, the car for us, after weeks of searching. For business purposes and family and dog (3 huskies) commitments, we must have a large estate car.

We purchased the MG ZT-T +180 Automatic with a 2.5 V6 engine giving 177 bhp. It is Front Wheel Drive. Our car is Starlight Silver which gives the 'aluminium' look. It's mean looking from the front and sleek from any other view. The engine sounds great and you can hear the throaty sports sound from the exhaust. Fabulous 18" Alloys and colour coded skirts/bumpers complete the external look.

On the inside, the seats are snug and fit well round the shape of your body, the dash is well equipped with sporty rev counter and speedo in white. The seats are adjustable up/down and forward/back. Lumbar support adjustment on both driver and passenger seats. Airbags for both driver and passenger. Fab Kenwood stereo system with removable front panel and 6 CD changer hidden away in the glovebox. All electric windows with automatic up/down functions. Climate control centre with individual controls for driver/passenger and for the rear passengers. External thermometer/temperature gauge. Adjustable headrests in front and 3 rear seats. Three, 3 point seatbelts in the back, no lapstraps here. Tastefully finished to a high standard. (You can tell BMW are involved in this car, no Rover designs are obvious at all). The interior doesn't feel as large as you would expect from the size externally but it's very comfortable.

This car is a dream to drive and is extremely comfortable on long journeys. It sticks to the road like glue. Stiff sports suspension to thank for that! ABS comes as standard. You can sit at the lights next to any 'boy racer' who thinks your car is a sluggish estate and leave them standing when the lights change. Eat my Dust! It's just as well this car has a great safety rating. For long journeys, the cruise control makes driving so easy.

Thatcham Approved Alarm and immobiliser for the security conscious. Also making the insurance affordable. This car is group 15 and we received a refund from our previous car (a 2.5 V6 Mondeo!). The MG was far cheaper.

On the downside, we do a lot of round town driving and we get approx 18-20 mpg from petrol, long distance comes up to 35 mpg. For this reason, we had an LPG conversion costing an extra £1900. We will get our money back in 18 mths and we'll then be saving. As this car is definitely a 'keeper' it is a good investment.

This is a car that you can be proud to drive, be safe in, looks good, and is also a good utility vehicle. We can pack it full of stock for work and it never struggles with the load.

I would recommend this car as a BMW styled and powered car, for Rover money.

You can get a decent BMW for the same money, that's what would put me off. I have an Audi A4 which cost less than this!! LArry

Looks and sounds good. Maureen

Sounds like a decent car. Not too keen if it looks mean from the front though!
