As part of the rigorous testing process – which tests for child and adult occupant safety, vulnerable road user protection and vehicle safety assist functions – Euro NCAP awarded five stars to all current MG4 specifications, including SE, Trophy, Standard and Long Range models.
All MG4s are equipped with MG Pilot, a comprehensive package of safety equipment designed to offer an additional layer of protection. Driver aids including Active Emergency Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist and Driver Attention Alert are included as standard across the range. Intelligent High Beam Assist and Speed Limit Assist are also included as part of a simple, intuitive package of safety features that protects occupants and other road users.
The Euro NCAP score also marks the first test result involving MG’s Modular Scalable Platform (MSP) – new, adaptable vehicle architecture designed to underpin the next generation of MG cars.
Guy Pigounakis, MG Motor UK Commercial Director, said: “We’re delighted with how the MG4 EV has performed during the extensive and rigorous Euro NCAP testing process, which acts as another major vote of confidence in the MG4. The car has been designed to offer affordable, zero emissions motoring without compromise – an excellent, five-star Euro NCAP rating demonstrates that the MG4 maximises safety as well as value for money.”
Since 1997, the European New Car Assessment Programme has been the benchmark for the safety of new vehicles on sale in Europe – helping consumers to make informed decisions when choosing their next vehicle. Euro NCAP performs comprehensive, objective and independent safety evaluations, now taking into account standard assist systems and passive safety.
