MG has just revealed its upcoming compact SUV, the Astor, which will be going on display in showrooms from September 19. We are expecting MG to open the official bookings in a week or so, ahead of the launch  scheduled in the first week of October. 

The Astor is the first car in India to get a personal AI assistant in the form of a robot-head type device placed on top of the dashboard. It works through voice commands and has a small display to mimic human expressions and “turns” to face the person it is talking to. The assistant can provide you with any information and perform in-car functions such as opening the sunroof or changing the AC temperature. 

It also 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. 

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. 

MG is offering the Astor with two petrol engines: a 110PS/144Nm 1.5-litre unit and a 140PS/220Nm 1.3-litre turbo unit. While the turbocharged engine will be offered with a 6-speed AT torque converter only, the other engine gets the choice of a 6-speed manual and 8-step CVT automatic. 

The MG Astor is expected to be priced from around Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom), rivalling the likes of the Hyundai CretaKia SeltosVolkswagen Taigun, and Skoda Kushaq.
