Whiplash Protection Crash Test Image

Child Protection Test

In the frontal offset test, protection of the neck of the 6 year dummy was ADEQUATE and WEAK for the 10 year dummy, while the protection offered to all other critical body regions was GOOD.

In the side impact test, protection of the head of the 10 year dummy was WEAK while protection of other body areas of both the 6 year and 10 year dummies was GOOD.

The MG HS is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages on the rear outboard seats and top tether anchorages for all rear seating positions.

Installation of typical child restraints available in Australia and New Zealand showed that all of the selected child restraints could be accommodated in each of the rear seating positions and full points were scored for this assessment.

Pedestrian Summary

The bonnet provided predominantly GOOD or ADEQUATE protection to the head of a struck pedestrian, while MARGINAL to POOR results were recorded at the rear of the bonnet, at the base of the windscreen and on the stiff windscreen pillars.

Protection of the pelvis area was mostly POOR, while protection of the pelvis was GOOD to MARGINAL.

The autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system is capable of detecting and reacting to vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists.

The AEB system offered GOOD performance in tests of its effectiveness in pedestrian test scenarios, with overall GOOD performance recorded in daylight scenarios and ADEQUATE performance in night-time scenarios. In cyclist test scenarios, the AEB system offered ADEQUATE performance. The overall performance of the system was classified as ADEQUATE.
