MG Gloster has been snapped standing outside its manufacturer's flagship dealership in Gurugram. It’ll rival with the likes of Ford Endeavour and Toyota Fortuner.
MG Motors India is targeting grabbing a sizeable chunk of sales pie in the Indian car market. Right now, the automaker is offering three products in our country, namely- MG Hector, ZS EV and Hector Plus. Next, the carmaker is gearing up to introduce another SUV in India, which has been named as the Gloster. Once launched, it’ll rival with the likes of Ford Endeavour, Toyota Fortuner and Mahindra Alturas G4. It'll be the flagship model in the carmaker's stable. Recently, the SUV was snapped outside the company's flagship dealership in Gurugram. The MG Gloster you see here is in a blood-red colour shade. The upcoming MG SUV will come loaded to its gills with some advanced features.
It may be noted here that a near-production version of the SUV was showcased early this year at the 2020 Auto Expo. Based on the Maxus D90, a Chinese SUV, the Gloster is 5,005 mm long, 2,875 mm wide, 2,950 mm tall and has a wheelbase of 2,950 mm. Outside, the SUV gets projector headlamps, 18-inch alloy wheels and large wheel arches. Along with projector headlamps, it also gets LED DRLs and LED taillights. At the back, the 2020 MG Gloster gets a robust-looking blacked-out bumper with sporty-looking quad exhaust tips and Gloster lettering across the tailgate. The MG Gloster showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo, however, was fitted with a twin-pipe set-up. On the boot lid, one can see the badging for 4WD as well as ADAS, which stands for Advanced Driver Assistance System.
This shows that the upcoming MG Gloster will feature semi-autonomous driving assist equipment. Mechanically, the MG SUV is powered by three different engine options in the foreign market. In India, however, it is expected to derive power from a 2.0-litre twin-turbo four-pot diesel mill which puts out power and torque outputs of 215bhp and 480Nm. Abroad, the SUV also gets propelled by a 2.0-litre turbo and a 2.0-litre four-cylinder gasoline mill. The former puts out 161bhp and 375Nm, while the latter produces 211bhp and 350 Nm of twisting force. Transmission duties will be done by a 6-speed MT or an 8-speed AT.
