MG Gloster Preview
At the Auto Expo 2020, MG Motor took the wraps off the Gloster SUV – the company’s answer to the likes of the Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour et al. Based on the Maxus D90, the Gloster will be the flagship SUV for the brand when it gets launched around Diwali. With that in mind it comes with loaded to the brim with features including adaptive LED headlamps, heated ORVMs, panoramic sun roof, gesture-controlled boot and more. On the inside too it will come impressively well equipped with heated/cooling and massage seats at the front, three-zone climate control, ambient lighting, and a bundle of other features.
One of the biggest highlights of the Gloster, however, has to be its over 5 metre length, which makes it considerably larger than the Fortuner and the Endeavour. Aside from the massive proportions, the huge chrome grille at the front gives the Gloster a intimidating stance.
International-spec model come fitted with a 2.0-litre offering that produces max power of 224 horses and comes paired with a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission. The India-spec version, though will make marginally lower 218bhp but an impressive 480Nm of torque.
The Gloster will make its way to India via the CKD route and will be assembled at MG Motor’s facility in Halol, Gujarat. Expect it to be priced in the Rs 28-35 lakh range when it gets launched around Diwali.
