    Like Tata Motors’ Dark Edition, Maruti Suzuki’s Black Editions and Volkswagen’s Deep Black Pearl, MG has also given the Astor an all-black treatment. It gets a black exterior paint as well as blacked-out alloy wheels, grille, door trims, bumpers, headlamps, and roof rails. Red accents on the exterior are only the brake calipers. It also gets a Blackstorm emblem on the front fenders as well as a honeycomb pattern for the grille.

    The dimensions of the Astor remain unchanged with a length, width and height of 4,323mm, 1,809mm and 1,650mm, respectively, and a wheelbase of 2,585mm.

    Inside, the Astor gets an all-black treatment with red stitching on the seats, steering wheel and door trims, along with red accents for the AC vents in the corners. The seats also have a fabric insert that has a checkered pattern, and the soft-touch dashboard has a carbon fibre-like design.

    As the Blackstorm edition is based on the Smart trim, it gets features like a panoramic sunroof, a 10.1-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, cruise control, automatic headlamps, automatic climate control, and a 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster. Safety features include two airbags, ABS, all-four disc brakes, a reverse camera, three-point seat belts with reminders for all passengers and ISOFIX anchors. The Blackstorm also gets JBL-tuned speakers, but they are available as a dealer-level accessory.

    The Astor Blackstorm is only available with the 110hp, 144Nm, 1.5-litre petrol engine that can be had with either the 5-speed manual gearbox or a CVT. However, the standard Astor also gets a 1.3-litre turbo-petrol engine that produces 140hp and 220Nm of torque and comes solely with a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

    Interestingly, the Astor Blackstorm is based on the mid-spec Smart trim, unlike the Gloster Blackstorm which was based on the top-spec Savvy trim.

    The Astor Blackstorm is priced at Rs 14.48 lakh for the manual variant and Rs 15.77 lakh for the automatic variant. The Astor competes with the Kia Seltos, Hyundai Creta, Skoda Kushaq, Volkswagen Taigun, Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder, Honda Elevate and the upcoming Citroen C3 Aircross
