The MG4 has five different models to choose between, with two different battery sizes.
The smallest battery (50.8kWh) is only available with the entry-level SE. But this does keep the price down, and you get a good amount of kit including adaptive cruise control, rear parking sensors and vehicle-to-load charging, which allows you to power items like a kettle with your car battery.
Handy if you’ve gone on a long winter walk and need to warm up with a cuppa before heading back out on the road.
Then you get two big battery but still affordable models, the SE Long Range and the Trophy Long Range. The Trophy trim adds some additional styling features, a 360-degree camera, heated seats and a heated steering wheel.
If you’ve got a bit more cash to splash, you might want to look at the XPower. Not only does it have the best performance, but it’s also equipped with more safety features, including blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and lane-change assistance.
And if you’re regularly undertaking long journeys and need all the range you can get, there’s the Extended Range model with its 77kWh battery.
The BYD Dolphin line-up is a little simpler.
Currently, the Dolphin is only available in the top two trims (Comfort and Design), with the cheaper Active and Boost coming next year. It’s the Active trim that has the smallest price tag and the smaller battery, but the Comfort is really the cream of the crop.
It’s equipped with the same 60kWh battery as the BYD ATTO 3, and comes equipped with 360-degree parking camera, vehicle-to-load charging, electrically adjustable seats, front parking sensors, heated front seats and a better audio system.
The range-topping Design trim gets the same battery as before, with the same 150kW motor, but adds a panoramic roof, dual-tone exterior paint and wireless phone charging.
