MG opens new di­men­sions

Auto Today - - Feature -

MG Mo­tor In­dia un­veiled the Gloster SUV at the Auto Expo 2020, with prices ex­pected to be be­tween 40 lakh (ex-show­room) and Rs 50 lakh (ex-show­room), mean­ing the lux­ury SUV will be ex­pen­sive than Toy­ota For­tuner, Ford En­deav­our and Mahindra Al­turas G4. The up­com­ing MG Gloster is ex­pected to be pow­ered by a turbo-diesel en­gine that will churn out 218bhp and 480Nm of peak torque, mated to a 8-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion.

The Gloster looks quite im­pres­sive from the out­side. It is a 7-seater based on the Maxus D90 SUV sold in­ter­na­tion­aly. At 5,005mm, the SUV is longer than Toy­ota Land Cruiser Prado and

Jeep Grand Chero­kee. The Gloster has a wheel­base of 2,950mm, which is longer than the Land Cruiser Prado and the Grand Chero­kee. The Gloster is 1,932mm wide and 1,875mm high.

The up­com­ing MG Gloster gets a bold front fas­cia with chrome triple slat grille which is sym­bolic to the

MG cars, au­to­matic pro­jec­tor head­lights with LED DRLs and LED tail­lights. Other ex­te­rior fea­tures in­clude roof rails, panoramic sun­roof and set of 21-inch al­loy wheels. The MG Gloster will have a mas­sive cabin with fea­tures like touch­screen in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem, mul­ti­func­tion steer­ing wheel, tilt/tele­scopic steer­ing, elec­tric tail­gate, au­to­matic AC and ven­ti­lated seats. In In­dia, the lux­ury SUV will be made avail­able in a cou­ple of seat­ing con­fig­u­ra­tions -6 (2+2+2) and 7 (2+3+2). Ex­pect MG to make launch an­nounce­ments soon.

The Gloster is a 7-seater based on the Maxus D90 SUV. How­ever MG has given it a MG grille up front and some more de­sign changes. The SUV is rather hu­mungous in size and of­fers very good road pres­ence. We hope to see a rather invit­ing price tag for the Gloster
