MG over in Thailand is preparing to launch its popular ZS crossover with a couple of minor updates. The vehicle is set to launch in Thailand on March 24, 2020. Along with the minor upgrades comes a new transmission option. The British heritage crossover can now be had with a CVT with 8-simulated gears. This new transmission will be replacing its older 4-speed automatic. In addition, it will no come with more feature options such as a 360-degree camera and a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system, it will also come with a full set of digital gauges.
Power options are still the same coming in only with a 1.5-liter naturally aspirated engine. While in China there is a hybrid variant, it doesn’t seem like MG will launch the new variant in Thailand.
What has been changed in the Thailand version of the MG ZS?
Quite a lot actually and here they are. A new set of wheels has been added to the vehicle which now comes in a new design and in a 17-inc size. The grille has been updated making it slightly wider and with a new pattern. New projector headlights have also been added. A new and sleeker front and rear bumpers have been added to the vehicle giving it a sportier look. The dashboard has been upgraded with the addition of a 7-inch full digital gauge. The infotainment also gets a rework in the form of a 10-inch touchscreen. The older mechanical handbrake has been replaced with a newer electronic one. With the addition of an electronic handbrake, the MG ZS now gets a brake hold function. Topping off the list of updates is a 360-degree camera.
With its launch in Thailand just a couple of days away this means that the Philippines should be up next on the upgrade docket. While there is no official news yet if MG Philippines will release the new version here, we are pretty sure that an update is just around the corner.
In adapting to the new normal Honda Philippines will be launching a new virtual showroom facility and experience.
