British marque, MG, is a brand with a chequered history. Now, though, it has turned over a new leaf and it looks to reassure car buyers by providing some insights on some of the tests it has conducted on its first-ever SUV – the GS.
The compact SUV was subjected to extreme weather testing over the course of 1.2 million kilometers, which included the scorching 46°C temperatures in the remote parts of Australia, to the icy -30°C temperatures in Sweden.
Wind tunnel testing also enjoyed high priority as the silhouette of the GS was developed over the course of 200 hours spent in the artificial wind generator.
Although it has not been confirmed for a local launch, it’s likely to be powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged mill producing 112kW – if it ever manages to find its way to South African soil.
