    MG Gloster bookings open; booking amount set at Rs 1 lakh

    MG Gloster bookings are now open, with the booking amount set at Rs 1 lakh. MG’s full-size SUV will be available in a choice of four trim levels and with either a six- or seven-seat layout.

    MG Gloster engine details

    The Gloster will be available with a two 2.0-litre diesel engine options. The first features a single turbocharger and develops 163hp and 375Nm, while the second is a twin turbo unit developing a meatier 218hp and 480Nm. An 8-speed automatic gearbox is standard, with the more powerful diesel offered with shift-on-the fly four-wheel drive with selectable drive modes. The lower-spec diesel is two-wheel drive only.

    MG Gloster variants

    As per the company website, the Gloster will be available in a choice of four trim levels – Super, Smart, Sharp and Savvy. The MG Gloster Savvy and Smart variants will be available with a 6-seat configuration only – captain seats in the middle row, while the MG Gloster Super will feature a 7-seat layout. The MG Gloster Sharp can be optioned with either seating arrangement.

    MG Gloster equipment

    In range-topping Savvy trim, the Gloster will pack in a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, i-Smart connected car tech, a panoramic sunroof, powered and heated front seats, ventilation, memory and massage function for the driver seat, 3-zone climate control, a tyre pressure monitor, a powered tailgate, LED headlamps and more.

    Safety kit will include six airbags, a 360 degree camera, ESP, traction control, hill-start assist and hill descent control, to name a few.

    Also on offer will be semi-autonomous driver assistance functions. While hands-free parking is featured in rivals like the Ford Endeavour, the Gloster will also get segment-unique tech such as Lane departure warning, autonomous emergency braking, front collision warning and adaptive cruise control.

    MG Gloster rivals

    The Gloster is expected to sit on the higher end of the full-size, 7-seat ladder-frame SUV segment. Key rivals will include the Ford Endeavour, Toyota Fortuner and the Mahindra Alturas G4.

    The Gloster is MG’s third launch for the year following the all-electric ZS EV in early 2020 and the three-row Hector Plus. The carmaker is expected to further expand its line-up in the coming year with models such as the petrol ZS SUV and a Maruti Ertiga rival.
