On the exterior, the SUV comes with a new design of dual-spoke alloy wheels, as compared to the outgoing model. Also, a new paint shade has been added to the 2022 MG Gloster SUV in addition to the pre-existing shades like Agate Red, Metal Ash, Warm White, and Metal Black.
Inside the cabin, the 2022 MG Gloster SUV gets a major change in the form of the new advanced i-Smart touchscreen infotainment system, along with a wide range of revisions. The updated i-Smart infotainment system now offers more than 75 connected car features.
MG claims that the vehicle owners can use the app as a remote for audio, air conditioning and ambient lighting in addition to existing i-Smart functions. Earlier, i-Smart was compatible only with Apple Watch users, but with the update, it has been made accessible to Android-based smartwatch users as well.
MG claims that the MapmyIndia-sourced navigation system will now give information about real-time weather and AQI. It also gets an integrated ‘Discover App’ that makes it easy to search for hotels and restaurants. Additionally, it comes with the new Park Plus head unit app that lets users book and pay in advance for parking slots. MG has also added 35+ Hinglish commands.
The SUV comes available in diesel engine options and both 4×2 and 4×4 drivetrain layouts. The SUV is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel motor. Powertrain specifications remain the same as before. An eight-speed automatic gearbox does transmission duty.
Speaking on the launch, Rajeev Chaba, President and Managing Director, MG Motor India, said, technological disruption, constant evolution, and best-in-class customer experience are key priorities for MG. “The Gloster is known for being bold, sturdy, versatile, and luxurious, and we are grateful for our customers’ response to it. With its 2WD and 4WD trims, powerful engine options, next-gen technology, Autonomous Level 1 and MY MG Shield Package, the ‘Advanced Gloster’ is designed to delight and excite our new-age customer,” he said. He further added, “We are actively addressing the supply chain issues through efforts such as additional localisation to ensure improvement in production. We hope to double our Gloster sales with this launch.”
The 2022 MG Gloster SUV will continue its rivalry with Jeep Meridian, Toyota Fortuner, Skoda Kodiaq, and Mahindra Alturas G4.
