MG Motor India is all set to launch the new MG Gloster SUV in the coming months, probably before Diwali 2020. Once it is launched, it will be the first SUV in India to have level 1 autonomous driving capability. And now, MG has confirmed that the Gloster SUV will be launched with 'auto park assist', which means that the SUV can park itself, without any help from the driver, thanks to the autonomous capability and a 360 degree camera. Earlier, the company had released a teaser video showing the Gloster getting advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), which includes features like lane departure warning, collision avoidance systems and so on.

The MG Gloster shares its underpinnings with the Maxus D90 sold in China and promises generous road presence and cabin space. The SUV measures 5,005 mm in length, 1,932 mm in width and 1,875 mm in height. The wheelbase stands at 2,950 mm. In other markets, the MG Gloster or the D90 gets a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that makes around 220 bhp and 360 Nm and is paired to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Also, there's a 2.0-litre turbo diesel unit that makes 212 bhp and 480 Nm. We expect both these engines to come to India.

Other features on the Gloster include 64-colour ambient lighting, which will be a segment feature yet again. Gloster will also come with a 12.3-inch infotainment display and a 12-speaker audio system, making the car loaded with technology. All this will be combined with MG's iSmart platform which will enable it to receive over-the-air OTA updates. This, of course, isn't surprising as this was a key selling point for even the MG Hector. This works with an embedded SIM which is even IPV6 ready supporting even 5G networks, though 5G networks in India are a couple of years away.
