MG Gloster has been recently spied while getting tested somewhere in India. The flagship SUV of the carmaker is expected to hit the Indian shores in the coming months.
MG Motors showcased the Gloster in India at the 2020 Auto Expo earlier this year. While, the automaker is all set to launch the Hector Plus in our market, which is the 6-seat version of Hector, the car manufacturer is testing the all-new Gloster SUV, which is the rebadged version of the Maxus D90. The all-new SUV will lock horns with the likes of Toyota Fortuner, Mahindra Alturas G4 and Ford Endeavour. MG Gloster will be the flagship car in the automaker’s line-up. Recently, the SUV has been snapped while getting tested without camouflage. The car is expected to hit the Indian shores in the upcoming festive season. Dimensionally, the MG SUV is quite massive and is also longer than the Toyota Land Cruiser LC200.
It is a 7-seater SUV and is based on the ladder-frame chassis. MG Gloster is likely to be priced around Rs 45 lakhs, which will put the SUV in a segment that will not have any direct competitor. MG is known in India for offering cars loaded with a number of unique features, and the upcoming Gloster will not be any different. The all-new SUV is expected to feature LED adaptive headlights, three-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof, gesture-controlled boot and a massive 12.3-touchscreen infotainment system with latest connectivity options.

Moreover, the passengers will be able to operate the doors with the touch of a button. Mechanically, the big SUV will be powered by a 2.0-litre, twin-turbo diesel motor, which churns out 218bhp of peak power and 480 Nm of twisting force. Transmission duties will be done by an automatic gearbox. Nevertheless, one can also expect the SUV to be offered with a 6-speed MT. The carmaker will soon launch the Hector Plus in India. The upcoming SUV will be big enough to accommodate 6-passengers at once. Once launched, it’ll directly compete with the likes of Toyota Innova Crysta and upcoming Tata Gravitas.
