MG Motor will be launching its fourth product for the Indian market sometime later this year called the Gloster. It will also be the company’s fourth SUV offering in the market, however, the Gloster will be placed much higher in the price bracket.
Ahead of its launch in the Indian market, the company has teased the upcoming premium SUV offering on its official website. The teaser image reveals the Gloster’s large octagonal-shaped chrome grille with an MG badge placed in the middle.
Other exterior elements that are expected on the upcoming SUV includes, LED tail lamps, roof rails, and the ‘GLOSTER’ moniker place across the boot lid, quad-exhaust tips finished in chrome, and a roof-mounted spoiler adding to the aggressive looks of the SUV.
On the Inside, the SUV is expected to come feature-packed wrapped in leather upholstery offering a premium looking and feel to the cabin. The highlighted feature on the SUV will include a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto. It will also feature the brand’s latest ‘iSmart’ connected technology with enhanced AI assistance and added number of voice commands.
Other expected features include three-zone automatic climate control, a panoramic sunroof, keyless entry, ventilated seats, wireless phone charging, multiple airbags, a 360-degree camera with blind-spot monitoring, cruise control, hill start assist, hill descent control, ABS, EBD, and lane change assist; among others.
The Gloster was one among many models that were showcased by MG Motor at the 2020 Auto Expo. The upcoming SUV is based on the Maxus D90 SUV that is currently being sold in the international markets. The Gloster will be built on a ladder frame chassis and is expected to be offered in a single seven-seater configuration.
Coming to the powertrain, the company is expected to offer the Gloster with a single-engine 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel engine option. It will produce 220bhp and 480Nm of torque and comes mated to a manual gearbox as standard. An optional automatic transmission could be offered at a later date.
