MG reveals how the new GS SUV was put through its paces

During testing the vehicle travelled over 750,000 miles in temperatures from -30° to +46°C in locations including Arjeplog, Sweden and Alice Springs in Australia. The GS was also put through more than 200 hours of wind tunnel testing in the development of the vehicle’s aerodynamic package. In addition, engineers placed wet cloths in the GS, enabling them to determine how quickly the car can demist when moisture is present inside.

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.”
