MG 4 EV Trophy Sport LR 64kWh (A) Review
02 Mar 2023  |  MG Reviews
The MG 4 combines sporty styling with a sweet ride and decent energy economy, but could do with some improvements to its infotainment system.

Car is great, but…  Posted on 17 Mar 2024

Review
The MG 4 EV ticked all my boxes and I made the plunge and got it in Jan 2024. Two months and 3500km later, here's my thoughts:

Drive: excellent. Speeds up and takes the turns like a champ. Only downside- pretty bumpy even when regen is turned down to its lowest setting.
Wind noise was also quite significant, but not so bad at you'd hear if you had music on.

Interior: I'm a simply man with simple tastes. Keep it simple, keep it tidy, keep it black. This car does all that . Nothing ugly and jarring and the boot space is sufficient for the occasional airport drop offs.

Infotainment system and the app:
The former is laggy, and the latter sucks. Buttons take time to register , or multiple taps, and connection on the app is sporadic.
Butttt.. It all does work though. I consider this car a daily meditation on the merits of patience.

Value for money: well I'm one of those lucky ones who nabbed it at a 65k COE, and before prices went up higher, so my stance on this is gonna be different from owners that come later. Except…

Now for the badder bits- MG Eurokars
My SA: top marks, great guy. Look for Derek he's a champ
Management: REFUSED to speak to me when I wanted to discuss something. REFUSED. Never had that before and I was more bemused than angry.
Service centre: Well, it's a new car so so far I don't have THAT much to follow up on. But the rear tailgate has been a persistent issue, they can't seem to get it working right for me.

But to end off this review I'll go back to the "Except…" And explain that: except, the earlier Cat B buyers of this car.

Yes it previously came in CAT B when COEs were sky high last year and MG freaked out and then downtuned the specs so the car could creep back in at Cat A. I've spoke to some fellow Cat B drivers and they're quite hard done by: they literally paid ALOT more but get quite a lot less.
No rear windscreen wiper and smaller wheels for their version, and more importantly, no app access.
Now of course we can just laugh and say "Lan lan" To the poor sods who paid close to 200k for this car and found its relative value crash in about 6 months, but I've got some sympathy with them when it comes to the app. Apps matter for EVs so at least you know when your car is done charging. How hard is it to allocate bandwidth for these cars to get on the app?

So the TD;LR review? The car is great, but MG Eurokars … not so much?
