2020 MG Gloster has been launched in India.
MG’s new flagship SUV is set to feature a muscular styling, powerful performance, luxurious interiors, and awesome new features.
What’s a Gloster?
‘Gloster’ pays homage to MG’s British genes, putting a step forward on being bold, sturdy, reliable, and versatile. Moreover, it is a nod to the British jet-engine aircraft prototype and British engineering.
MG calls it #TheSelflessCar, putting your comfort and safety above everything else.
MG Gloster price in India starts at INR. 28.98 Lakhs to INR. 35.95 Lakhs. Furthermore, it is available in four trim levels: Super, Smart, Sharp, and Savvy.
With that brief introduction, let’s look at everything new in the 2020 MG Gloster.
MG Gloster Overview
MG Gloster takes design inspiration from all walks of life; from a floating feature to a racetrack pattern.
On the front, it gets an octagon signature chrome grille with a chrome-plated front guard.
Similarly, the front design looks very classy with front projector LED headlights, front fog lamps, and chrome-treated skid plate.
Moving to the side, the chrome makes yet another comeback.
It gets a chrome treatment in outside door handles, DLO garnish, roof rails, side stepper finish, and trunk sill trim.
Diamond-Cut Multispoke Alloy Wheels, Turn Indicators on ORVMs, and outside Logo projection completes the premium design.
Finally, the rear gets a race track themed LED taillamp, Dual Barrel Twin Chrome Exhaust, and Rear 3D Emblem.
That was just the exterior.
Leather upholstery, soft-touch material, LED interior Reading Lights, 64 Colors of Ambient Lighting among other complete the premium interiors.
MG Gloster is available in four colors: Agate Red, Metal Black, Metal Ash, and Warm White. Additionally, it is available in the 6-seater or 7-seater model.
MG Gloster is available in two different engine configurations: Diesel 2.0L Turbo and first-in-segment Diesel 2.0L Twinn Turbo.
The 2.0L Diesel Tubo engine can generate a max power of 163 PS at 4000rpm and 375 Nm at 1500-2400rpm. Moreover, it is mated to an 8-speed automatic with a 2WD drive type.
Similarly, the 2.0L Diesel Twin Turbo engine can generate a max power of 218 PS at 4000rpm and max torque 480 Nm at 1500-2400rpm. Furthermore, it is also mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, but with a 4WD drive type.
The 4WD comes with 7 Terrain Mode: Snow, Sand, Eco, Mud, Auto, Rock, and Sports.
The suspension setup is Dual Helix Independent on the front and Five Link Integral on the rear.
It also comes with all Disc braking as standard!

As much as we want to highlight all the features in detail, it is for the best if we just highlight just the major key features.

MG Gloster Price in Nepal and Availability
MG Gloster price in Nepal is expected to be a bank-breaker.
However, the price in India looks good. Especially considering everything currently being offered including the Level 1 First Autonomous Driving.
If you haven’t noticed, there aren’t many Autonomous Driving SUVs in India.
Theoretically, it might very well be a game-changer for the Indian and Nepali market.
Previously, MG eZS offered killer features with integrated Smart Technology in the Indian markets.
But when the car made its way into Nepal, those very smart features were missing. I do hope the same thing doesn’t happen yet again.
MG Gloster goes head-on against the likes of Ford Endeavor, Toyota Fortuner, and Tata Gravitas.
