MG has launched the Astor compact SUV from Rs 9.78 lakh to Rs 16.78 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It is available in four trims: Style, Super, Smart, and Sharp.  Official pre-registrations are underway and the bookings will commence from October 21. The first batch of deliveries will commence in November and December 2021.

The Astor’s highlight is, of course, the personal AI assistant shaped like a robot head. The device ‘turns’ and ‘responds’ to the person giving the voice command, can ‘emote’, crack a joke, source information, and also perform certain in-car functions.

Other features include automatic LED headlamps, a 7-inch fully digital instrument cluster, power steering modes (Normal, Urban, and Dynamic), a panoramic sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, i-Smart connected car technology, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and bluetooth key (you can even drive the car without the key). 

The MG Astor also gets segment-first ADAS (Advanced driving assistance system) with features like lane-keeping assist, lane departure warning, blind spot detection, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and high-beam assist. Passenger safety is secured by up to six airbags, electronic stability program (ESP), traction control system (TCS), hill hold and descent control, all four disc brakes, tyre pressure monitoring, and a 360-degree camera. 

The MG Astor is provided  with two petrol engines:

It's 5 speed manual and not 6 speed. Disappointing.

    for adas , you have to pay extra over the price which is not revealed by company. I think this makes the car overpriced.
