MG tests all-new GS to its limits

The new MG GS, which goes on sale in the UK next month, has undergone rigorous testing including key stretches in extreme weather conditions from Australia to Sweden.

The SUV has covered over 750,000 miles, braving the 46°C heat of Australia’s Alice Springs and -30° chills of Arjeplog in Sweden, guaranteeing, says MG, ‘that wherever you take your GS for adventures, it will stand up to the challenge.’ 

To ensure the GS design was as streamlined and fuel efficient as possible, it was also put through more than 200 hours of wind tunnel testing to hone its aerodynamic profile. 

Testing also covered the ‘wet dog in car’ scenario, which involved placing wet cloths in the GS to determine how quickly the car demists when moisture is present inside. 

Matthew Cheyne, Head of Sales and Marketing for MG, said: “When you look into what a new car endures prior to going on sale, it’s fascinating and demonstrates the effort that goes into ensuring the car is the best it can possibly be. 

“With the imminent arrival of the GS, we’re excited to share facts and figures and nuggets of information people may have not been privy to before. By sharing these, we’re showing customers that when they step into the GS they know it can stand up to all challenges and adventures they put it through.”
