Kia Soul EV vs MG ZS EV: space and practicality

This is where the MG hits back at the Kia, with its big boot making it the more family-friendly option

MG ZS EV Exclusive

This is one area where the MG really starts to look like remarkable value for money. After all, you’re not only getting a well equipped electric car for this price, you’re getting a really decent small family SUV that gets a sizeable 470-litre boot, complete with variable-height floor that hides useful cable storage.

Kia Soul EV First Edition

The Kia's boot (above) isn’t quite as long as the MG's – this is the more style-orientated, less practical of Kia’s electric SUVs – but that only really shows in the 315-litre boot that's noticeably shorter than the MG’s. Still, it has a variable-height boot floor with dedicated cable storage and there’s more than enough space for a single buggy or a medium-sized dog, so most small families will be fine with the Soul. Both cars also have plenty of space for two adults in the back seats, and high roofs that make bending in to access child seats easy.
