2020 MG Gloster SUV specs and features
How does it look from the outside?
MG Gloster SUV looks bigger in size. It is the longest SUV with the longest wheelbase. The 19-inch wheels further enhance its muscular look. For an SUV of this size, turning radius becomes large and that is a problem for traffic conditions like in India. The contour lines running through the body appear to be merging at the octagon signature front grill. The chrome finish around the front grill and across the doors improves its premium look. You will find chrome finish at the ORVS, wheels, door handles, and around the fog lamps. Look wise, this SUV stands taller among its competitors.

The 4WD variant delivers a maximum power of 218PS which is more than Fortuner and Endeavor.
