When it comes to price, the Gloster’s less powerful diesel engine will allow it to take the fight to the Fortuner and Endeavour

Update (08/10/2020): MG has launched the Gloster SUV at a starting price of Rs 28.98 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Back at the 2020 Auto Expo, MG surprised us with the Gloster and the brand has now unveiled the full-size, body-on-frame SUV in India. It brings several class leading features and will be offered with a first-in-segment twin-turbocharged 2.0-litre diesel engine and 4x4 drivetrain. MG has now revealed that the Gloster will be offered with a 2.0-litre diesel engine with a single turbo, lower output and rear-wheel-drive as well.

Take a look at both the engine specs in the table below:

Engine 

2.0-litre single-turbo

2.0-litre twin-turbo

Power (PS)

163PS

218PS (+55)

Torque (Nm)

375Nm

480Nm (+105)

Transmission

8-speed automatic

8-speed automatic

Drivetrain 

Rear-wheel-drive 

Four-wheel-drive 

The Gloster will be available in four variants: Super, Sharp, Smart and the range topping Savvy. However, the engine options differ from variant to variant. And on top of that, both 6-seater and 7-seater options are not present in certain combinations of powertrains and variants. Here are the possible combinations that can be had.

 

2.0-litre single-turbo, RWD

2.0-litre twin-turbo, 4WD

Variants (seating layout)

Super (7-seater), Smart (6-seater)

Sharp (7-seater), Sharp (6-seater), Savvy (6-seater)

Thankfully, all variants and combinations of the Gloster are available with the same four colour options:

  • Warm White

  • Metal Ash

  • Metal Black

  • Agate Red

Takeaway

The Gloster’s lower Super and Smart variants are available with the single-turbo 2.0-litre diesel engine with RWD drivetrain. This would allow MG to price it competitively and take the fight to the Ford Endeavour (Rs 29.99 lakh) and Toyota Fortuner diesel (Rs 30.67 lakh). There is a constraint with the single-turbo diesel option, though. The base Super variant can only be had with a 7-seater layout and the Smart variant can only be had with a 6-seater layout. We believe offering both seating layouts with both variants could have made the Gloster’s entry variants even more appealing.

The higher variants of the Gloster, Sharp and Savvy, can only be had with the 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel engine and a 4WD drivetrain. You do, however, get the option to pick between the 7-seater and 6-seater layouts in the Sharp variant. The top-of-the-line Savvy variant will only be available with a 6-seater layout.
