The Gloster will be the Flagship SUV in the company's India line-up. The carmaker was planning to launch it around the festive season and now it has been officially confirmed that the Gloster will be launched in India on October 8, 2020. MG has already revealed all the details about this full-size SUV. So, today we share with you everything you need to know about the upcoming 2020 MG Gloster BS6.
The 2020 MG Gloster BS6 will be offered in four different variants - Super, Smart, Sharp and the range-topping variant will be called Savvy. The top-spec Savvy and the mid-spec Smart variant will be available only as a six-seater (captain seats in the middle row). The base Super trim will be offered in a seven-seater layout while the mid-spec Sharp trim will be very flexible as it will be available both as a six-seater as well as a seven-seater.

The MG Gloster will be available with two different BS6-compliant diesel engine options. Both the mills will have the same 1996cc displacement and will be paired to the same automatic transmission.

Both these oil-burners will be mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission as standard. However, the single-turbo diesel engine will get 2WD system (rear-wheel drive) but the twin-turbo motor will get an on-demand Intelligent 4-wheel drive system.
