MG Motors India has officially started accepting bookings for its upcoming premium SUV – the MG Gloster. Interested customers can thus book the Gloster at any MG dealersip in India by posting a token amount of Rs. 1 lakh. The full size SUV will be offered in four variants. It will be available in 6-seat as well as 7-seat configurations.
MG Motors has already revealed that the Gloster SUV will be offered in four trim levels – Super, Smart, Sharp and Savvy. Of these, the Smart and Savvy variants will get captain seats in the second row and will thus be available as a 6-seater. Meanwhile, the Gloster Super will be offered as a 7-seater with a regular seat bench in the second row. The MG Gloster Sharp trim will be available with both seating configuration options.
The Gloster is a full-size SUV that will be priced over Rs. 30 lakh. At this price point, it is obvious for the customers to expect a feature-loaded package. As a result, MG Motors have equipped the Gloster with features like a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, connected car tech, panoramic sunroof, powered and heated front seats, tyre pressure monitoring system, powered tailgate, LED headlamps, and a 3-zone climate control system.
Under the hood, the MG Gloster will be available with two engine options. This includes a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine that develops 163 PS and 375 Nm of peak torque. This engine option is available only with two-wheel drive. Meanwhile, the same 2.0-litre diesel block is also available with twin-turbos, pumping out 218 PS and 480 Nm. This particular engine will come with shift-on-the-fly four-wheel drive and selectable drive modes.
Once launched, the MG Gloster will compete against the likes of Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour, and Mahindra Alturas G4.
