One of the highlights of this sedan is its adoption of a high-standard pedestrian protection system. The car was said to be equipped with engine hood cross-section buffer structure, strengthened front-end bumper, and lifted engine hood that should minimize the pedestrian’s injuries on vehicle collisions.
According to Wang Xiaoqiu, VP of SAIC Motor, the MG GT is a mid-range masterpiece from a pool of visionaries with a whole new design, powertrain, and intelligent technology that can meet the demands of their target market (which they said are the young consumers).
