I purchased my car in June 2021 (for my birthday) and loved the style of the vehicle. The interior is very stylish and the Pilot system is impressive.

I don’t have any dislikes, to be honest.

I was actually going to buy a BMW X1, but the BMW dealer stuffed me around from a finance perspective. When I was supposed to pick the car up, my finance wasn’t put through as the finance officer left and didn’t do anything with my application.

I then looked at the MG online and then decided to go to Hamilton MG at Morphett Vale where Zac was amazing. Zac let me test drive the car which was almost exactly like the BMW, except the MG Pilot was much better as it had a 360 camera and was $20k cheaper. The finance officer, Leith (I think was his name was), treated me well too. They were both brilliant!

The technology in the MG is amazing, just amazing! and I love the panoramic sunroof. I also love the pilot system because it tells you when you get too close to the car in front and go over the lines on the road which is great.

The 360-degree surround-view camera is the best I’ve seen in a car, especially when you’re trying to get out of a car park because you can see the other cars coming. The camera was the surprise of the features but I have found it very reliable and extremely practical, along with the size and height of the car to the amazing boot space it has.

The only improvement I would recommend, is to use better glue as my red T fell off from the ZST!

I love it the way it is and have recommended the MG to everyone and three of my friends have even purchased one (I should get shares!).

This is the best car I have ever had.
