    Looks like it can be repaired and put back on the road!


    Safety first analysis MG3 C-NCAP five-star performance







    MG3 is Shanghai Auto's another masterpiece, the market, this is a "popular I create" as the core value of quality car shine, 4S stores are in short supply. Many young consumers saw in its quality and cultural connotations. But this car is also worth noting in terms of security, the latest batch of C-NCAP crash test results in, MG3 to 47.1 of the total score on the five-star results obtained.

    Full frontal collision

    Crash test in three parts, first is full frontal collision. The results from the collision is not difficult to find, the engine compartment crumple to absorb the majority of impact, so there is no A-pillar deformation, the front door still open, thus ensuring that the crew can ease off and will not stuck in the car not within the rescue. Steering column automatically crumple, airbags open in time, these measures have reduced the crew to minimize the degree of injury may be.

    After the collision, MG3's entire engine compartment is still played a good role in absorption, although the former did not break off the siege, the former arch upward deformation of the machine cover, both sides of the fender by the extrusion and deformation, but the A, B, C pillar no significant deformation, good body posture control, the front door can still open. In addition, the car bounced off the airbag is the first time, to ensure the front passenger's safety.

    Side impact

    Result of the collision from the side view, MG3 is equipped with side air curtains open very quickly, so you can maximize ensure crew from harm; and resistance to impact the largest B-pillar only minor deformation, rigid body can be seen very well. A0-class car, the side air curtains are rare, its protective ability is undoubtedly even more powerful side, therefore the most critical in the MG3 deformable moving barrier side impact test to get out of 16 points, a C-NCAP since its creation Since the only way to get out of the A0-class car, jumped to the "king of car safety."

    In the MG3 the crash test, or whether it reflected more passive safety performance. MG3 using its unique Enhanced high toughness USD just body structure, to ensure the body is not easy to deformation, while the front and rear doors with a high intensity beam collision, reducing the impact on the owners side of the damage, to ensure that staff ride by to escape when the side collision, in addition, MG3 front and rear bumper beams in collision also played a significant role.

    In the crash test, MG3 airbag performance is also in place. Dual front airbags, side airbags, side curtain airbags with seat belt force limiters, active, effective protection of the driver's seat of deputy personnel safety. Also equipped with ABS + EBD system is guaranteed when the body encounters a sudden state of stability.



    E-NCAP pedestrian safety to the standard four-star



    It is worth mentioning that, MG3 in addition to taking into account the safety of the crew, but also to pedestrian safety as a concern, this is rare in the domestic models in the design fully reflects the Shanghai Automotive repairer people-oriented principle. Including MG3 Xross, including all models, both for adults and children pedestrian safety tests, to meet European pedestrian protection legislation the second phase of design, but also reached the 2011 E-NCAP four-star pedestrian requirements. At the same level models, MG3 protection of pedestrian safety is unique.

    Overall, MG3 obtain such a result is quite satisfactory. And the same batch tested compared to the new POLO, MG3 collision mode in three-round wins. With this security guarantee quality, MG3 will no doubt get more consumers.

    and if you say that in Europe a specific concern about Chinese cars is their crashworthiness, here's the argument to convince them about the XROSS!

    Was there a crash test on a standard MG3 too?

    No, under current rules they can say that the MG3 has 5 stars even though it was an XROSS that was tested, they are going to change those rules soon though as well as making the tests more difficult to pass with higher speeds and introducing new electric car specific tests.
