A quick rundown of the table above. The Astor will be available in five trims: Style, Super, Smart, Sharp, and Savvy. The base-spec Style will only be provided with the 1.5-litre petrol engine with a manual transmission. The top-spec Savvy will not get a manual gearbox option.

The other three trims will come with all the powertrain options as detailed in the table. The range-topping Savvy will likely get an exclusive red colour option. 

The Astor gets a 110PS 1.5-litre petrol and a 140PS 1.3-litre turbo-petrol engine. The former can be paired with 6-speed manual and CVT options, while the latter only gets a 6-speed torque converter automatic. 

Now, the features at a glance. The Astor gets a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system with connected car technology, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a panoramic sunroof, powered driver’s seat, a 7-inch digital instrument cluster, and LED lighting. It is also the first car in India to get a robot-like device acting as a personal AI assistant. 

MG Astor features segment-first ADAS (autonomous driver assistance system) features such as automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, forward collision warning and blind spot monitoring. Safety is further covered by up to six airbags, a 360-degree camera, electronic stability control and hill descent control.

What is the expected mileage of MG Astor? Will it be less like MG Hector as 6 to 7 kmpl? Any information about it?

It would be unfair to give a verdict here as MG Astor hasn't launched yet. So we would suggest you wait for the car to get launch. Stay tuned for further updates.
