Not Sure, Which car to buy?

Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    Citroen C3

    • Quirky styling grabs eyeballs. Lots to customise too.
    • Roomy cabin spacious enough for four 6-footers.
    • Air-conditioning is super strong. Chills you in no time!
    • Comfortable ride quality over a variety of roads. Confident at highway speeds too.

    MG ZS EV

    • Understated and classy styling
    • Understated and classy styling
    • Rich interior quality. Feels very upmarket
    • Good features list - 10.1-inch touchscreen, digital instrument cluster, etc.
    • Realistically achievable range of 300-350km on a full charge

    Citroen C3

    • No automatic options on offer.
    • No CNG variants available.
    • Lots of missing features. From basics like powered mirrors to essentials like rear wiper/defogger.

    MG ZS EV

    • Rear seat space is good but some may expect a roomier experience for the price
    • Boot space could’ve been more generous
    • EV charging infrastructure is inconsistent. Home/work charging and the portable charger will be more dependable than public charging
    • Some ergonomic flaws - lumbar cushioning feels excessive, front armrest may be too tall for short drivers

Must read articles before buying Citroen C3 and MG ZS EV

  • Citroen’s done well to understand the difference between an ‘affordable’ car and a ‘cheap’ car. The C3 delivers where it really matters.   

    By ArunJun 14, 2022
  • The updated MG ZS EV brings with it slight design changes, more features and more range as well. We’re not in the mood for some suspense so let’s cut straight to the chase - if you want a premium long-range electric car, this needs to be on your consideration list!

    By TusharMar 30, 2022
  • The carmaker says there are 56 customisation options for the hatchback along with more than 70 accessories
