MG first showcased the Gloster in Auto Expo 2020 in India and the crowd was surely impressed. The car’s size is mammoth and looks grand and demands road-presence. It has been spied testing for quite some time now in India. It was set to launch this festive season, but the Covid-19 pandemic may have forced MG to delay. As a result, the Gloster will launch only after the Hector Plus hits the streets.

With the Gloster, MG may likely make the debut of SAIC’s 2.0-litre bi-turbo four-cylinder BS6 diesel engine. Paired with an 8-speed conventional torque converter, this engine has the capacity to belt out a maximum power output of 218 PS and a peak torque output of 480 Nm.
