Two MG Models Score a 5-Star Euro NCAP Safety Rating


MG Motor has made an impressive feat in Europe as two of its vehicles were awarded with the highest possible safety rating by the European New Car Assessment Program or Euro NCAP.

The two vehicles to achieve the 5-star safety rating are the MG ZS EV—the all-electric version of the sub-compact MG ZS crossover, and the MG HS, the brand’s compact crossover and a platform-mate to the local RX5.

The current Euro NCAP tests are the most stringent ever, making MG’s achievement even more significant.

It’s worth noting too that the European MG ZS closely mirrors the spec of the top-line Philippine spec MG ZS Alpha model in that it contains 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, and stability control as standard; these alone would merit a 3-star rating.

However, for 2019, MG opted to add MG Pilot—a suite of driver aids that include Active Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Keep Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control—key factors for the ZS’s 5-star rating.
