MG Motor India has introduced the 2023 Gloster Blackstorm variant in the country. The new deep black SUV has redesigned style, additional features, and the latest Level 1 ADAS capabilities. The MG Gloster Blackstorm will be available in two different drivetrain configurations: front-wheel drive (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD). MG has gone with an all-black aesthetic, following in the successful footsteps of companies like Tata Motors with their Dark Edition and Volkswagen with their Deep Black Pearl. The exterior of the Gloster Blackstorm may be had in either Metal Black or Metal Ash paint, with both colours being complemented by black roof rails, taillight and headlight housings, window trim, fog light housings and alloy wheels. The exterior is mostly black, although there are some red details here and there. Front and back bumpers, as well as the wing mirrors, headlights, and brake callipers.

The inside retains the black and red theme with black upholstery and crimson accents on the dashboard and steering wheel. All the same features found on the standard Gloster are included in the Blackstorm version. Among these are a dual panoramic sunroof, a 12-way adjustable driver's seat and an 8-way adjustable passenger seat, and various safety features like lane change assist and adaptive cruise control, both of which can be found on other Gloster models. 

The 6-seater configuration has six individual captain's chairs, whereas the 7-seater has a bench in the middle row. MG has also confirmed that an 8-seater edition of the standard Gloster is on the way. This new model will likely have a bench seat in the middle and rearmost rows.

The engine of the Blackstorm variant of the MG Gloster remains unchanged. The 2WD model is powered by a 2.0-litre single turbo-diesel producing 163bhp, while the 4WD model is powered by a 2.0-litre twin turbo-diesel producing 218bhp. Both engines are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, but the 4WD model's drivetrain also has a shift-on-the-fly BorgWarner transfer case.
