The upcoming MG Gloster will become a viable alternative to the likes of Toyota Fortuner or Ford Endeavour in the segment.
MG Motors is showing its great desire to grab a bigger slice of the pie in the Indian auto market. After achieving quite a success with the MG Hector and introducing the MG Hector Plus, the Chinese-owned British brand is gearing up for the upcoming MG Gloster which will become a solid contender to the likes of Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour in the segment. Recently, the carmaker released a teaser video of the new Gloster that hints at the impressive semi-autonomous driver assist feature that it will get to offer.
That said, the Auto Park Assist in the new MG Gloster will help a lot in the parking manoeuvers where the driver can enjoy free hands while simply operating the drive select and brakes to switch between drive and reverse. MG Gloster’s auto parking assist works much like the one seen in the Ford Endeavour.
As seen in the teaser, the MG Gloster will be also equipped with first-in-segment emergency auto braking with adaptive cruise control. It also reveals much on the inside of the premium full-size SUV including captain seats for the second rows, semi-digital instrument cluster with colour TFT display, plush upholstery, a massive touchscreen infotainment system and many more. The Gloster also offers a kick-to-open function for the power tailgate.
Unveiled at the Auto Expo 2020, the new MG Gloster will be developed on the ladder-frame chassis and measure 5,005 mm in length, 1,932 mm in width, 1,875 mm in height along with the wheelbase of 2,950mm. The upcoming SUV is expected to be powered by 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines, both are paired with an automatic transmission. Bookings for the MG Gloster are unofficially opened while the Gloster launch is set for Diwali 2020. The all-new MG Gloster is likely to be priced in between Rs 40 – 45 lakh.
