MG Motor made its India debut last year with Hector SUV in the market. The SUV was a huge success for the brand and this helped them establish themselves as a car brand in our country. MG Motor then launched India’s first connected EV in December 2019. The MG ZS EV competes with cars like Hyundai Kona and Nexon EV in the segment. This year MG launched their third product, 6-seater version of the Hector which is known by the name Hector Plus. Now, MG Motor is preparing to up the game and is planning to launch a luxury SUV. MG has now released a teaser video of upcoming Gloster SUV that gives a hint on what all features will be there in the SUV. The Gloster will take on the likes of the Toyota Fortuner and the Ford Endeavour.
The video has been shared by MG Motor India on their official youtube channel. The Gloster SUV was showcased at the Auto Expo earlier this year, and back then the manufacturer and also announced that they will be bringing it to India. The Gloster is a huge SUV that will compete with cars like Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour, Mahindra Alturas G4, Isuzu MU-X in the segment. Just like other MG products that we have in the market, the Gloster SUV is also expected to get a wide range of features.

The cabin in the upcoming Gloster is going to be an interesting place as it will be a combination of technology and comfort.
