MG Motor UK completes most diverse test program to date with ZS

Having already completed over one million hours and three million miles of strenuous structural integrity testing on tracks, MG’s ZS compact SUV has since undergone additional assessment in Europe to refine the vehicle for the UK market.

Although British weather is unlikely to hit such extremes, the vehicle was put through its paces in the most thorough cold weather test ever conducted by the MG team – nine vehicles were taken to Sweden where they endured temperatures as low as -35°C. Hot weather tests took place in Spain in temperatures up to 42°C with cars driven at maximum speed. The ZS was also tested at high altitudes in Austria.

In the UK, the car was driven through the countryside in Wales and put through a series of real-life scenarios such as the ‘paper-shop test’ in which the car is driven for 1.5 miles in less than five minutes to check the comfort of the vehicle. Water spray, river fording and hill climbing tests were undertaken at Horiba MIRA in Warwickshire.

Tim Wright, head of vehicle test and performance, said, “In a bid to develop a car that is suited to the needs of UK drivers, we really pushed ourselves with the MG ZS test program. Taking on European climate extremes, challenging British roads, very wet Welsh weather and some highly inventive real-world scenarios, we’re confident that the MG ZS will stand up to any challenge thrown its way.”
