A look at the MG G10 MPV
The MG G10 borrows its styling cues from the China-specific Maxus G10 model. The car sports a bulky stance and is comparatively longer and taller than its arch-rival Kia Carnival.

Inside the cabin

Plus, the production-ready model will come equipped with a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment panel with connectivity features and connected car technology.
Power and performance
MG Motor has not revealed the mechanical specifications of the India-specific G10 as of now. However, internationally, the car is offered with 2.0-liter turbo-petrol and 1.9-liter diesel engines. The former is capable of producing 224PS of maximum power and 345Nm of peak torque, while the latter churns out 150PS and 350Nm.
And, how much will it cost?
MG Motor India will launch the G10 MPV in the country by the end of this year. As far as pricing is concerned, it is likely to cost around Rs. 20-25 lakh and take on the likes of Kia Carnival and Toyota Innova Crysta.
