MG 4 Electric: An Impressive Five Star Safety Rating by Euro NCAP

Published Date:

The all-electric hatchback from Morris Garages scored great scores for the safety of both adult and child occupants, and the on-board safety systems also worked as planned.

Euro NCAP awarded the MG 4 Electric a 5-star rating in their most recent round of crash tests. Both the onboard active safety systems and the all-electric MG for European markets fared wonderfully in terms of occupant protection.

The Morris Garages Electric car scored an 83% for adult occupant protection. The driver’s chest protection was only moderate in frontal crash tests, but the car’s occupant protection levels ranged from good to sufficient. During the full-width barrier frontal impact, the agency also noticed that the head of the back passenger moved forward more than is normally advised. The organisation accordingly assigned a mediocre rating to the area’s protection.

During side impact testing with the barrier and pole, excursion control—where the body is thrown to the opposite side of the cabin by impact forces from a far-side collision—was, however, ineffectively controlled.

The front seats offered good levels of whiplash and impact protection despite the fact that the back seats performed poorly in a rear crash. The board explained that the poor grade was caused by the insufficient head restraint for the center-back passenger.

The MG 4 was recognised for providing occupant protection for children at an 80 percent rate. The front passenger seat and rear centre seat of the vehicle were incompatible with ISOFIX and i-Size child restraint systems (CRS), while the rear outer seats were. The vehicle also lacked an integrated CRS system. Euro NCAP praised the manufacturer for providing the driver with a clear airbag deactivation notice when a rear-facing child seat was put in the co-driver seat, saying that the CRS could be properly installed and accommodated in the vehicle.

The impact protection provided by the car received great marks from both the 6- and 10-year-old occupants, however even the latter’s neck protection fell short of expectations.

In terms of pedestrian safety, the MG offered good to adequate levels of protection over the bonnet surface, but stronger parts like the A-pillars and the base of the windscreen only offered marginal to inadequate protection. The bumper gave pedestrians decent or acceptable protection for their legs and, for the most part, for their pelvises.

The autonomous emergency braking system also performed admirably when compared to other vehicles and vulnerable road users, successfully preventing crashes in most instances. Due to its success in safeguarding vulnerable road users, it received a 75% grade.

While the bulk of the autonomous tasks of the safety aid systems performed between adequate and well, they only obtained a 78% rating.
