MG Motor is planning to launch its Gloster SUV in India, sometime around this festive season.
In the latest development, the company has claimed that the vehicle will boast of off-road-friendly facilities like on-demand four-wheel drive, and multiple driving modes (Rock, Sand, Mud, and Snow).
Moreover, the four-wheeler will draw power from a BS6-compliant 2.0-liter petrol engine and offer a host of safety features.
On the sides, the SUV will be flanked by roof rails, ORVMs, blacked-out B-pillars, side-steppers, and 21-inch alloy wheels.
There will be quad exhaust pipes, and LED taillights on the rear end.
MG Gloster will get a cabin featuring diamond-style-stitching seats, three-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof, 64-color ambient lighting, and adaptive cruise control.
There will be multiple airbags, front collision warning, autonomous parking, emergency braking, a collision-avoidance system, and a fatigue reminder system, for passengers' safety.
The vehicle will pack an 8-inch instrument cluster and a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment panel with support for iSMART technology.
The MG Gloster is expected to get two BS6-compliant engine options- a 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine making 217hp/360Nm, and a 2.0-liter turbo diesel engine generating 209hp/480Nm. Transmission duties will be handled by a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
It will get a rear differential lock button with Borg Warner Transfer Case, and a five-link integral rear suspension, to improve its off-roading capabilities.
The MG Gloster will be launched in India around October and should carry a price-tag of around Rs. 45 lakh. Meanwhile, unofficial pre-bookings for the car are now open. Once unveiled, the SUV will take on rivals like Toyota Prado and Mitsubishi Pajero.
