ANCAP has completed its latest round of barrier testing and the results see a four-star rating for the MG GS mid-size SUV.

According to ANCAP, the MG GS is a sound vehicle structurally but is not fitted with important safety features such as autonomous emergency braking, second-row seat belt reminders and lane departure warning.

ANCAP’s official rating sees the GS score 31.47 out of 37 possible points, which when broken down sees 13.47 out of 16 points awarded in the frontal offset crash test and a perfect 16 out of 16 points in the side impact test.

“We are working with MG to see if a specification upgrade can be put in place in the hope the model can offer another five star option for medium SUV buyers,” ANCAP chief James Goodwin explained.

Whiplash protection was given a “good” rating (the highest rating available on the ANCAP scale). Pedestrian protection was rated as “acceptable”.

The MG GS comes standard with six airbags (including dual front, front seat side, full-length curtain airbags), front seatbelt pretensioners, electronic stability control with rollover mitigation and ABS brakes with electronic brake force distribution and brake assist.

Priced from $25,990 (plus on-road costs), the five-seat GS - MG’s first-ever SUV - is the cornerstone for sales growth for the classic British brand these days owned by SAIC Motor, China’s largest vehicle manufacturer. Power comes from a turbocharged 1.5-litre petrol engines driving the front wheels via a six-speed dual clutch automatic transmission.
