The new MG Gloster will be available in 6- and 7-seater configuration, and will be available with two diesel engine options
MG India will launch the Gloster SUV in India today, 8th October 2020, and bookings for the vehicle had already begun last month. The full-sized SUV was first unveiled in India earlier this year, during the 2020 Auto Expo. It is a rebadged version of the Maxus D90, which is a ladder-frame luxury SUV by SIAC.
The MG Gloster will be available as a 6-seater as well as a 7-seater SUV, and will have four trim options – Super, Smart, Sharp and Savvy. Under the hood of the Gloster is a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine, available in two configurations. The lower trims will sport a single turbocharger, and generate 163 HP and 376 Nm. The higher trims will have a twin-turbocharged setup, which will have 215 HP and 480 Nm.
Transmission options are limited to one – an 8-speed torque converter automatic. On the lower trims, the SUV gets a rear-wheel-drive system, while the top trims get an on-demand four-wheel-drive system. The Gloster also offers LED headlights, LED DRLs, LED fog lamps, and diamond-cut alloy wheels.
Other than that, there will be plenty of other premium features on offer, like push-button start/stop, cruise control, a semi-digital instrument panel (with 8-inch TFT MID), ventilated front seats, ambient lighting, panoramic sunroof, three-zone climate control system, massage seat (driver), and a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with iSmart connectivity suite.
It also has level-1 autonomous functions on offer, like auto park assist, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning system, and automatic emergency braking. In terms of dimensions, the MG Gloster is quite huge; it has a length of 4985mm, a width of 1,926mm, a height of 1,867mm, and a wheelbase length of 2,950mm.
The MG Gloster is expected to have a starting price of around Rs. 29 lakh, and will become the new flagship vehicle of MG Motor India upon launch. It will compete against other three-row body-on-frame SUVs in the Indian market, like the Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour, and the Mahindra Alturas G4. We shall update you on the complete price list once the vehicle is launch, so stay tuned to Gaadiwaadi.com for further details.
