The MG Gloster is the latest full-size SUVs to go on sale in the Indian market and MG Motor has again managed to price it very attractively, given all that it packs in. The Gloster also boasts of class leading power figures at 215 bhp and 480 Nm of peak torque from a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, twin-turbocharged engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission while the same engine is offered with a single turbocharger in lower variants. Then, apart from loaded to the gills with creature comforts, the Gloster also is the first and only fully connected SUV. While the Endeavour does offer an app based connected tech, the Fortuner and Alturas don't get any of it.

Having said that, all the SUVs do stack up closely in terms of overall features and off-roading capability and pricing is a key differentiator. Also, the Gloster gets a slight edge being offered in four variants with an even spread of prices, while the rivals are offered only in a fully-loaded single variant with 2WD or manual option being the base one. That said, the Gloster gets connected car tech and a handful of that extensive features list only in the range-topping trim. So here's how all these SUVs fare against each other in terms of pricing.
