MG Gloster is ready to be launched in the Indian auto market prior to the festive season this year. Recently, the specifications of this SUV have been fully released along with a video that shows its automatic parking feature
After the success of the MG Hector, Hector Plus and ZS EV, MG Motor India is now planning to introduce its fourth product, the MG Gloster, a 6-seater full-size SUV. The new MG Gloster is based on the China-spec Maxus D90 SUV, and was showcased earlier this year at the 2020 Auto Expo. The car has already been spied testing on Indian roads and we expect more such sightings before the car is finally launched here in October. Underpinned by a ladder frame chassis, the MG Gloster will be 5,005 mm long, 1,932 mm wide and 1,875 tall model. These dimensions make the SUV larger than both Ford Endeavour and Toyota Fortuner.
As regards the exterior, the MG Gloster will experience slight alterations against the model which made its debut at the 2020 Auto Expo. The SUV will feature updated headlights, octagonal grille and a muscular bonnet in the front. The Gloster will run on 19-inch multi-spoke silver-grey rims. In the rear, the car sports LED taillights and quad exhaust pipes.
The MG Gloster will be equipped with a wide range of top-notch features. These include a massive 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with i-Smart suite, a digital instrument cluster, three-zone automatic air conditioning, leather seat coverings, a panoramic sunroof and leather seat coverings, etc. In the safety front, the car will be equipped with front and side airbags for all the three seat rows, ABS with EBD, front collision warning system, adaptive cruise control, driver fatigue alert and dynamic stability control. Please take a look at this video which has fully revealed the SUV in terms of the exterior, interior and some interesting features like automatic parking.
The global-spec MG Gloster receives its power from a 2.0-litre turbo gasoline burner which can produce 220 HP against 360 Nm and is mated to a 6-speed MT/6-speed AT. The India-bound model is expected to be powered by a local 2.0-litre twin turbo oil burner which can deliver 215 HP against 480 Nm. The SUV is also likely to be offered with automatic and AWD variants. Thanks to MG Motors’ high level of production localization, the MG Gloster is expected to be aggressively priced with a starting price of INR 45 lakh.
