MG India plans to introduce an all-new small SUV in the first half of 2021. It'll rival the likes of Hyundai Venue and Maruti Vitara Brezza
MG Motor India plans to expand its vehicle line-up by introducing many new models in the next 2-3 years. In a recent interview with Car and Bike, Rajiv Chaba, President and MD, MG Motors India said that the carmaker intends to launch an all-new small SUV in the market, which will sit under the Hector in the company’s vehicle line-up. The upcoming SUV will be the most affordable car in MG’s stable. Most likely, the new model will be a compact SUV that will be priced under Rs 10 lakh. The upcoming SUV will rival the likes of Hyundai Venue and will hit the Indian shores by the first-half of next year.
Once launched, it’ll compete with the likes of Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300 and upcoming Kia Sonet. Moreover, the all-new sub-4 meter SUV by MG will be available with petrol and diesel engine options. There will be no electric powertrain on offer. MG Hector was the first-ever vehicle offered by the British carmaker in the country, and it has been a big hit and now, a smaller SUV could repeat the success story by giving a tough time to Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, etc. After introducing the all-new sub-4 meter SUV, the carmaker has plans to launch the MG G10 MPV, which was showcased earlier this year at the 2020 Auto Expo.
The upcoming MPV will rival with the Mahindra Marazzo and is expected to be priced under Rs 20 lakh (ex-showroom). The Multi-Purpose Vehicle will be offered in 7 and 8-seat configuration and will come loaded with features like MG’s iSmat Connected technology, automatic climate control, a panoramic sunroof, powered sliding rear door and a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Mechanically, it’ll derive power from a 2.0-litre, 4-pot turbocharged motor, paired with a 6-speed MT or automatic transmission.
