MG ZR ZS ZT Technical - ZT Service Wagon
|Can anyone confirm if a "commercal" version of the ZT-T is available in the UK - ie, fixed panels at the rear instead of glass and slightly higher roof - no back seats???. Just the trick for carting mg spares about.|
|Don't give them ideas!! The ZR van is bad enough!!!|
|Not seen one - there is a van based on the smaller ZR car but I think that is all.|
|Bugger - the ZR isn't sold here in OZ - have to settle for a ZT-T then.|
|I think there is a ZR van.|
|Just in case no one else has mentioned it, there is a ZR van :)|
I believe that the ZR merely has no rear windows, i.e. the roof line has not been raised.
|The MG Express (or Rover Commercial) is based on the ZR or 25, but has a strengthened bulkhead behind the front seats for load restraint (and, one assumes to avoid people adding rear seats to avoid paying purchase tax).|
A lot of the MG R dealers are now using these which is a whole better than the other makes they were using!
Be warned that the ZT-T has an internal spare wheel well so for your conditions it might be hard to get to with a full load in the back. Also, make sure you can get a full size spare in the wheel well. UK ZTs come with a space saver, or at best, a can of tyre inflator. The standard 225 alloy is too big for the wheel well depth.
|Martin, my ZT came with a full-size alloy spare (cost option), which fits into the boot no problem. I believe the boot/wheel well were slightly redesigned a while ago to accomodate this. Can't speak for the ZT-T, however.|
Boot never redesigned (only for the RWD ZT):-) Was a cost saving measure. R75 had a spare wheel, ZT didn't - since added and no intrusion into the Boot.
ZR Express launched along qith the R25 version a while ago. R25 version called CDV.
|CDV= Curry Delivery Vehicle?|
Or would that be reserved for a Cityrover van?
|Perhaps MGR could be prevailed upon to make a ZT Ute in the style of the Aussie Landcrab Ute.|
With a 4.6 litre V8...
|I passed a ZT-T that had its rear windows blacked out and was used by a flooring company based in Swanley. This car still had the rear seats and doors.|
I guess you, Tony, could get a ZT-T converted into a van. It would be unique.
