In June 2016, the new MG GS goes on sale in the UK. To mark the occasion, MG has been sharing images from its development, from the design brief and early sketches through to what it’s gone through to ensure it performs at its best.
All new models are put through their paces, and the MG GS is no exception to this testing. The GS has travelled over 750,000 miles as part of its testing and it has braved the 46°C heat of Australia’s Alice Springs and -30° chills of Arjeplog in Sweden. 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.
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. Carrying out tests like this allows Engineers to fine tune systems to ensure the GS runs at its optimum performance. Matthew Cheyne, Head of Sales and Marketing for MG, said: ‘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.’
