Remember we saw MG’s Fortuner rival for India last year? Well, it has been christened ‘Gloster’ for the Indian market. As we learned already, the Gloster is nothing but a re-badged Maxus D90 that is on sale in China and Australia. As with the Hector, the name Gloster comes from a British aircraft.
The second MG vehicle that was unveiled during the 3rd day of Auto Expo 2020 was the G10 MPV that’ll compete against the likes of Toyota Innova Crysta and Kia Carnival in India. The G10 is, of course, another re-badged model that is badged as Maxus/LDV G10 depending on the market.
Powertrain details for the above vehicles (for the Indian market) are not available at the moment. However, the brand’s India management had the following to say.
The launch of Gloster and G10 will mark our entry in the luxury SUV and MPV segments respectively. We are confident that, with its best-in-class features, specifications and performance, the Gloster will be a benchmark for luxury SUVs in India with its launch later this year and G10 will also follow soon. – Rajeev Chaba, President & Managing Director, MG Motor India
