    Although it isn’t branded, the OEM audio system on the MG Gloster holds its own against some pricier options. The cavernous cabin is filled up well by 12 speakers, including a subwoofer in the boot and a centre channel speaker in the dashboard. It’s a tonally balanced system that impresses with its low-end grunt and definition. It’s only at the top-end of the frequency spectrum that it starts sounding a bit unrefined and sibilant, but the on-board graphic EQ can help tame that easily. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are supported but the 12.3-inch screen could be more responsive in its touch sensitivity and also brighter under direct sunlight. But its unique feature is a built-in Gaana app that also allows for song search via voice commands, which are a hit-or-miss affair. More USB ports wouldn’t go unappreciated either, but you do get to use up to 70 features through your smartphone, thanks to the iSmart 2.0 connected car app.
