MG Motors launched the all-new Hector Plus in the Indian market earlier this year. MG is now working to launch its flagship product in the Indian market, which was officially showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo. The all-new MG Gloster will take on the likes of Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour, Mahindra Alturas G4 and the likes. The all-new Gloster is likely to be launched later this month as the festive season is approaching and most customers plan to purchase their vehicles during this time of the year.
The new pictures on T-BHP show that MG has already dispatched Gloster a few dealerships in India. This indicates that the launch is imminent and soon official unveiling of the vehicle will happen where the specifications and features will be announced.
The new pictures also reveal a few things about the upcoming SUV. To start with, it gets the ADAS badging, which stands for Advanced Driving Assistance System and it is a semi-autonomous feature in the vehicle. The system is considered as 2nd level of autonomous driving where the vehicle itself would be able to control the speed and steering but the driver will have to keep an eye out for the obstacles and such things. Such systems use radar-based technologies and we are not sure if the same will be offered in the Indian-spec Gloster. The ADAS is already available in the MG ZS EV and few other cars on sale in the international markets. Also, the exterior of the Gloster gets quad exhaust tips and multi-spoke alloy wheels that look extremely good.
The cabin gets three-row seating with captain seats for the second row. Also, the images show that the Gloster will come with an all-digital instrument cluster, lane-departure warning system, and rear electronic differential lock. There is also a rotary knob to choose between the various traction modes and drive modes. The upcoming SUV will also come hill descent control, park assist, seat ventilation and wireless charging system. Like the Hector, the Gloster will get a massive panoramic sunroof too.
While the engine details are not out, the Gloster is likely to be powered by a 2.0-litre diesel engine from FCA that also powers a range SUV in India. The same engine is currently available with the Tata Harrier, MG Hector and Jeep Compass. However, in the Gloster, it will produce a maximum power of 218 Bhp and a peak torque of 480 Nm. It will get an 8-speed automatic transmission too.
MG has always been known for keeping an extremely value-for-money price tag and the Gloster is expected to follow the same strategy.
