The MG Gloster will be the first full-size SUV in its segment to get features like autonomous emergency braking system and adaptive cruise control among others.
The next big launch from MG Motor India is the all-new Gloster. In typical MG fashion, it will get host of features and safety systems. MG Motor India has started giving out details of the new MG Gloster ahead of its launch and it has now shared that it will be equipped with the segment-first autonomous emergency braking along with the adaptive cruise control system. The MG Gloster will be the first full-size SUV in its segment to get features to get these features as its closest rival- the Ford Endeavour is offered only with semi-autonomous park assist and doesn’t get these radar based advanced driver assist features.
The autonomous braking system in the Gloster works below speeds of 40 kmph by bringing the vehicle to a complete halt if it senses a possible collision. If the vehicle is cruising above 40 kmph, its speed reduces by 40 kmph when the autonomous braking system comes into force. In fact, the Chinese automaker has tested and validated the automatic emergency braking system according to Indian road conditions.

On the outside, you’ll get to see elements like projector lens LED headlights, LED daytime running lights (DRLs), 18-inch alloy wheels and LED taillights among others.
Under the hood, the MG Gloster will get the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine which is mated to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission.
