MG Motor India has been focussing only on SUVs from the moment they set up shop in India. The next launch from MG is going to be their biggest SUV yet, literally and figuratively. The company is all set to launch the MG Gloster in India sometime next month and the company officially revealed the SUV today. Although, MG has been revealing details about the Gloster for a few weeks now! It will be India's first ever SUV to have level 1 autonomous driving technology, which MG calls advanced driver assistance systems or ADAS. This includes hands-free parking, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, collision avoidance system and blind-spot monitoring.

The exterior design on the Gloster is a simple affair. It is a big SUV with typical SUV lines and a bold stance but the overall look is rather generic. The glimpses of interior reveal that it is plush from inside and gets a bunch of features too. The MG Gloster will also offer a host of creature comforts like - a 12.3-inch infotainment screen, equipped with the company's iSmart connected car technology, a 12-speaker music system, and an 8-inch digital instrument console with analogue displays for speed and revs. The SUV also offers three-zone climate control, second-row captain seats, ventilation function for front seats with diamond-style-stitching, a panoramic sunroof and more. It also gets first-in-class 64- colour ambient lighting feature.
Being a full-size SUV, the Gloster also gets significant off-road kit such as on-demand 4x4 system and seven driving modes, five-link integral rear suspension and a rear differential lock button. The SUV is likely to be powered by a 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine paired with 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions. The motor is tuned to belt out 220 bhp and 360 Nm of power figures. It is also expected the SUV will be offered with a diesel engine as well. We might see the Gloster SUV having 4x2 and 4x4 options, once it is launched.
