New MG’s extreme adventures

MG’s first SUV, the GS, goes on sale in June – and it’s been through some testing times.

The GS has travelled more than 750,000 miles as part of its test programme, braving the 46°C heat of Australia’s Alice Springs and -30° chills of Arjeplog in Sweden.

MG says the testing in such extreme temperatures guarantees “that wherever you take your GS for adventures, it will stand up to the challenge”.

To make sure the GS is as streamlined and fuel efficient as possible, it was also put through more than 200 hours of wind tunnel testing to develop its highly-efficient aerodynamics.

Testing has also covered the ‘wet dog in car’ scenario. By placing wet cloths in the GS, tests were able to determine how quickly the car can demist when moisture is present inside.

The GS will come with MG’s first automatic transmission. The SUV’s top specification model will be available with the option of a DCT gearbox.
