How effective is MG3's heater and air con?

It's an interesting heater dial on the higher specs, but I was just wondering how good it was at heating/air conditioning.

I do find the heater good in the car, however I struggle to get it at a good temp when I have it on the windscreen or up on the direction settings, each bar in red does not give much control if i'm honest.

I also find it difficult to have warm feet and legs if the direction is set to down and up, one or the other and it's fine but some of that is maybe personal preference.

Generally, I think the system works well (although itís the wifeís car and she might have other ideas) it puts out enough heat and cooling and is reasonably intuitive. The only gripe I have with it is I find 2 red bars too hot and 1 red and 1 blue too cold. You can hear the aircon cutting in and out but itís not obtrusive.

It's generally a good system......I find there seems to be no middle ground with it though. It seems either too hot or too cold but I've always found my ZS with the ATC system the same.

My biggest gripe is I find the air con buttons etc very small.....although I don't drive the car on a regular basis. Maybe this is something you get used to??
