MG Motors made their debut in the Indian market last year with their first product MG Hector. It became popular among buyers within a very short span of time and has a long waiting period depending upon the city and state. MG Hector competes with cars like Jeep Compass, Kia Seltos, Tata Harrier, Hyundai Creta and Mahidnra XUV500 in the segment. This year at the expo, MG Motors had displayed a variety of vehicles in their pavilion. Some of the models will eventually make its way to the Indian market. One such SUV that MG had unveiled which will be launched in India was the MG Gloster. Here we have a video that shows how the feels like and is it a good competitor to the Fortuner and Endeavour in the Indian market.
The video has been uploaded by Carsguide on their youtube channel. The Gloster is a global SUV and is sold under different names in different countries. It is known as Maxxus D90 in some countries whereas in some other countries it goes by the name LDV D90. In India, the same SUV will be known as Gloster.
The Gloster is a huge 7-seater vehicle which has ample amount of road presence. The Gloster gets a huge grille at the front with chrome finish which adds up to the premium look of the car. The side profile of the car gets large windows, machine cut alloy wheels, chrome handle bars and other features. According to the video the Gloster looks good and muscular from the outside and has an SUVish stance to it.
On the inside, it gets all the advanced features that a vehicle of this segment usually gets. It gets touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, cruise control, leather wrapped steering and seats, ample storage spaces and so on. Anchor was very impressed with the space Gloster offered on the inside both on second and third row of seats and even with three rows of seats up, it offered decent bootspace.
According to the anchor, Gloster feels like a large vehicle while driving and it takes some time for the driver get a hang of it. The steering has ample weight to it at high speeds and and being a huge vehicles it takes some time to park it. One of the complaint that Anchor had with the vehicle was the headrest on the second row of seats which was blocking driver’s view of the rear. Apart from these small issues the video said that Gloster was good enough to drive and is good contender in the category.
The MG Gloster is likely to be launched in the Indian market later this year. The Indian version is likely to be powered by a 2.0 litre turbo petrol and a 2.0 litre turbo diesel engine. MG will also be launching MG Hector plus (6-seater version of Hector) and MG G10 MPV.
