All the 2,000 units of MG Gloster that were scheduled to be delivered this year are sold out. Deliveries will now resume in 2021
MG Gloster is the biggest car in its segment. Also, it is making it big to headlines as the car has been already announced sold out for the year 2020. MG has recently confirmed that the bookings for the Gloster are open, but the deliveries will begin by next year only. Going by the sales figures, MG has found customers for the 2,000 units of the Gloster, which were to be sold by this year itself. Considering that Gloster was launched in the country on October 8, this is a great achievement for the brand given the premium positioning of the SUV.
MG Gloster is the brand’s flagship SUV and competes with the likes of Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour, and Mahindra Alturas G4. It is powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder diesel engine, which can be had either with single or twin turbochargers. This unit is capable of putting out a peak power output of 218 PS and max torque of 480 Nm, and it comes mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox as standard. The top-spec trims also come with a BorgWarner transfer case and a locking rear differential.
In terms of features, the MG Gloster is generously loaded. It gets a 12.3-inch touchscreen display for the infotainment unit, which features MG’s Smart 2.0 connectivity interface as well. Furthermore, the list includes three-zone climate control, dual-pane panoramic sunroof, semi-digital instrument console, wireless phone charging, massaging function for the driver seats, and electronically-adjustable front row seats with memory and heating function.
As for the safety of the occupants, the Gloster comes packed with ABS with EBD, electronic stability control, traction control, roll-over mitigation, hill hold control, six airbags, auto park assist, adaptive cruise control, front collision warning, hill descent control, front parking sensors, 360-degree parking camera and more. Also, MG has recorded the highest sales figures for the Hector in the month of October, with a total of 3,750 units sold. Interestingly, this comes up as a growth of 48 per cent on a month-on-month basis. The Hector rivals the likes of Tata Harrier, Hyundai Creta, Toyota Innova Crysta, Mahindra XUV500, and Kia Seltos in the Indian market.
