MG HSMG PILOT
All New MG HS is the second MG model to benefit from the brand’s high-tech driver assistance suite called MG Pilot, after it debuted on MG ZS EV in July 2019. MG Pilot comes as standard across all versions from Explore through to Excite and Exclusive and helps to make the driving experience relaxing and safe.
At speeds below 12 mph, the car will automatically apply its brakes to avoid a collision with a vehicle, bicycle or pedestrian. At speeds above 12 mph, AEB will reduce the likelihood or mitigate the severity of an accident.
Lane Keep Assist uses a camera to detect lane markings ahead and monitors the vehicle’s position in its lane. When the function detects the vehicle is about to unintentionally move out of its lane, it warns the driver by means of a visual, audible and steering wheel vibration. The car will also control the steering to keep within its lane.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) monitors the road ahead. As long as the road ahead is clear, ACC maintains the speed set by the driver. If the system spots a slower vehicle within its detection range, it gently reduces speed by releasing the accelerator or actively engaging the brake control system. If the vehicle ahead speeds up or changes lanes, ACC automatically accelerates back to the driver’s desired speed.
When Adaptive Cruise Control is turned on, Traffic Jam Assist continuously analyses the speed of the surrounding vehicles and compares it with its own driving speed. If the system detects dense traffic or a traffic jam at speeds below 35 mph, the driver can activate TJA. The car will automatically follow the vehicle in front, controlling its acceleration, braking and steering within the same lane.
This system keeps a lookout to help you change lanes safely. A radar sensor serves as BSD’s electronic eye, registering objects in hard-to see areas. Whenever there is a vehicle in the driver’s blind spot, a visual signal will show in the door mirror.
When the headlight high beam is set to the AUTO position, the system automatically switches to low beam when it detects a vehicle ahead. This enables drivers to maximise the use of high beam, making night-time driving safer, without the risk of dazzling on-coming traffic.
The car will actively detect speed limit signs and alert the driver of the current speed limit by way of a symbol on the driver's instrument cluster. The symbol acts as a reminder to the driver, reducing the risk of exceeding the speed limit.
