Stallion MG has expressed confidence that its recently launched MG ZS would, in 2022, capture between 15% and 20% share of Nigeria’s A-SUV market.
Anurag Shah, General Manager, Stallion MG Automobiles Ltd., Nigeria’s official representative of the British brand Morris Garages, made the assertion recently in a press statement.
He said: “Considering its quality design, performance, top notch safety features and equipment level, which endear it to the car lovers in Europe, Asia and other parts of the world, we have no doubt that the MG ZS Crossover has the capability to become a segment leader in Nigeria. That was why, following its launch in the country, we confidently projected a segment market share of between 15% and 20%.
“Aside from offering more equipment than ever, this new MG ZS comes with an upgraded fuel-efficient engine, additional styling features and the very latest automotive technology in the interiors.”
Designed and built with British heritage in mind, the MG ZS, a striking Crossover characterized by a contemporary design, comes with a redesigned front-end, which features a new hexagonal grille with a black finish as well as slender headlamps with LED daytime running lights.
Its rear end also features LED light clusters, which give it a sporty and powerful appearance in line with the Dark Rider theme.
“With 17-inch alloy wheels and a selection of smart paint colours to choose from,” Shah explained, “this is a car that stands out everywhere it goes.”
MG ZS is available with two engine options, including 1.5-litre Turbo engine, which delivers an output of 160hp and peak torque of 160Nm or 1.5-litre CVT engine, which produces 118hp and 160Nm of torque, low emission and improved fuel economy of 16.5km/litre.
“Whichever you choose, you can expect a sporty and agile drive every time you take to the road,” Shah assured.
Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox, which gives a smooth and seamless, acceleration, getting you from 0-100km/h in just 9.8 seconds.
“And importantly, like all MG vehicles on sale in Nigeria, our MG ZS comes with five-star safety features, which give drivers and passengers peace of mind while on the road.
“As standard, the Crossover features driver, passenger, and curtain airbags, auto hold and a blind spot warning system as well as ISOFIX anchor points for the safe installation of child seats,” Shah added.
One of the MG models being assembled in Nigeria, MG ZS was, with its siblings, introduced into the Nigerian market in December, 2021.
