    MG has stuffed the Gloster to its gills with features, making it the best equipped SUV in its class. The 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system alone packs in a lot – apart from being the largest, it gets Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MG’s iSmart suite of connected-car tech. This includes a smartphone app for remote functionality, intelligent voice commands, an onboard e-SIM, the Gaana music-streaming app built in, live weather status, and MapMyIndia-sourced navigation with real-time traffic data.

    360-degree camera quality is poor, especially in low light conditions.
     

    What’s more is that it gets the very helpful 360-degree cameras, but the camera resolution leaves a lot to be desired and the display quality is poor. Among the nicer features are the largest-in-class panoramic sunroof, a heated, cooled and massaging driver’s seat, which is powered and gets a memory function. Then there’s three-zone climate control, wireless phone charging, a 12-speaker audio system, 64-colour ambient lighting, tyre pressure monitoring and an electronic parking brake with auto hold. An electric tailgate, auto LED headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, a heated passenger seat and paddle shifters are also part of the equipment list.

    Deep, narrow wireless charging slot doesn’t let you see your phone screen.
     

    And then there are the Advanced Driver Assisted System (ADAS) features. Among these are some that we’re more familiar with, like driver fatigue detection, auto parking assist, blind-spot warning function, and lane departure warning. Then there’s frontal collision warning, adaptive cruise control, and autonomous emergency braking function. See the box for more details on how the advanced driver assistance systems in the Gloster work.
