It is a Cat. S car, so the insurance considered it a write off. I would want a good look at it and put it on a jig to make sure it is straight before parting with money. That said many Cat. S are repaired and safely returned to the road.

Yeah... That's had quite a lot of damage to be a total loss at that age. I would guess cost / availability of parts is a factor.

 

They do look more solid than the junk that used to come out of China, though https://www.euroncap.com/en/results/mg/zs/29657

That’s one thing the Chinese seem to have mastered very well, the build quality even to my most critical eye is very good, in fact a lot better than some of its rivals in the same price band, such as the Duster etc. Even quite a few of the more expensive OEM’s could learn a thing or two from them :default_eusa_dance:
