The Chinese-owned British brand MG has showcased the Indian version of the Maxus D90 SUV, called the Gloster.
The SUV measures 5005 mm in length, 1932 mm in width and 1875 mm in height. Also, the wheelbase measures 2950 mm. The suspension set-up in the MG Gloster includes dual helix independent in the front and 5-link integral in the rear. In terms of safety, the SUV has been awarded a 5-star rating in the Australia NCAP crash tests wherein 70% of the body is made of steel and 9% is made of thermoformed steel.
The MG Gloster gets features such as a 360-degree camera, TPMS, sunroof, dual-zone air-conditioning, an 8-way power-adjustable driver seat, a 12-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a panoramic sunroof, connected car tech, six airbags, hill descent control and so on.
Internationally, the MG Gloster is powered by a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The powertrain churns 224 PS of power. However, in India the company might introduce its own in-house-developed 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel that delivers 218 PS and 480 Nm of torque.
The MG Gloster is expected to be priced around Rs. 40-45 lakhs and compete with the likes of the Alturas G4, Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour.
