The full-size, body-on-frame MG Gloster is expected to go on sale in the second half of 2020

  • The MG Gloster is already on sale in other markets like China and Australia as Maxus D90.

  • The D90 gets features like three-zone climate control, 360-degree parking camera and a panoramic sunroof.

  • The SUV has already been spotted testing in the country. 

Just a few days ahead of its official debut, MG has teased its third SUV for the Indian market - the Gloster. The body-on-frame, three-row SUV is already on sale in China, where it is sold as the Maxus D90. Maxus is a subsidiary of SAIC group which also owns MG. 

The China-spec SUV is powered by a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine that is tuned to produce 224PS and 360Nm. It is offered with the choice of a 6-speed automatic and 6-speed manual transmission. It also gets a bi-turbo diesel engine that makes 215PS and 480Nm, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Both engines are expected to make their way to the MG Gloster. 

In terms of design, the India-spec SUV will look similar to the China-spec car barring for some minor updates. From what is visible in the teaser image, it gets an MG grille at the front along with a set of redesigned alloy wheels. With a length of 5005mm, width of 1932mm and a height of 1875mm, the Gloster will be among the biggest SUVs in its class. Here is a comparison table:

Expect the MG Gloster to come loaded with features since the China-spec car gets creature comforts like three-zone climate control, power-adjustable and ventilated driver seat, a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 360-degree parking camera, a panoramic sunroof, connected car tech, and an air purifier system.
