MG Motor India has recently launched its flagship SUV in the country - MG Gloster. The Gloster is a full-size SUV from Morris Garages in India. It rivals against the established rivals which include the Toyota Fortuner, Mahindra Alturas G4, Ford Endeavour, etc. MG launched the Gloster just last month at an introductory starting price of Rs. 28.98 lakhs, Ex-showroom Delhi. Now, the introductory prices have come to an end and MG has hiked the price of the Gloster by up to 1 lakh rupees. Also, the MG Gloster is already sold out for 2020 as it has garnered over 2000 bookings within a month of its launch. Let's have a look at its new price list:
|Variant||Launch Price||New Price||Difference|
|Super (Turbo Diesel - 7 Seater)||Rs. 28.98 lakhs||Rs. 29.98 lakhs||1 lakh|
|Smart (Turbo Diesel - 7 Seater)||Rs. 30.98 lakhs||Rs. 31.48 lakhs||50,000|

The price of the Gloster now starts at Rs. 29.98 lakhs and the price of the top model fetches up to Rs. 35.58 lakhs. All prices stick to Ex-showroom Delhi. Despite the price hike, the MG Gloster is still a great value for money offering. The base model of the new MG Gloster still undercuts the price of the base model of Toyota Fortuner Diesel by around 69,000 rupees and Ford Endeavour by just 1000 rupees. The new MG Gloster is a very feature-loaded SUV. Also, it gets two BS6-compliant diesel engines.

It also gets seven driving modes (including four terrain modes - Rock, Sand, Mud and Snow).
As already mentioned before, the Gloster is a very feature-loaded and tech-laden SUV. It gets a large 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.
