MG Gloster Facelift: Design

The alloy wheels on the recently spotted test mule's side profile appear to be taken from the current-generation model. However, the redesigned Gloster is expected to arrive with a new alloy wheel design. The rear end of the SUV has revised LED taillamps, connected by a sleek light bar. This arrangement lends the car a modern and streamlined appearance.

The new Gloster's engine will probably be the same as the current one. It will have a 2.0-litre turbocharged or twin-turbo diesel unit mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The mill is capable of churning out 478Nm of peak torque and 213bhp of maximum power.
