Default MG 360M @ Auto Expo 2020

Big shoutout to Vid6639 for shooting these pictures & his coverage of the Auto Expo. Thanks for sharing, man!

MG Motor is evaluating the 360M for India. The 6-seater MPV is expected to rival the Maruti Ertiga.

Powered by a 1.5L petrol engine mated to a CVT. Power & torque outputs stand at 103 BHP & 135 Nm respectively:

Front end is dominated by a large grille. Headlamps have integrated DRLs:

Measures 4,615 mm in length, 1,735 mm in width and 1,660 mm in height with a wheelbase of 2,750 mm. B, C & D-Pillars are blackened giving a floating roof effect:

Classic MPV styling at the rear. Reversing camera is located above the number plate:

Interior gets a dual-tone theme, an 8-inch floating touchscreen infotainment head-unit and an electric sunroof:

Both captain seats fold flat:

Right captain seat can be tumbled forward:

Third row seats are split in a 50:50 ratio and can be folded forward. Boot space is reasonable even with the third row seats upright:

Thanks for sharing the snaps. Interesting car, looking cool for the segment, this car had the potential to take on Ertiga, Marrazo, and Innova to an extent.

I am not a fan of the wheels and the odd proportions. The front end looks good though. I can see it doing well if they can price it similar to the Marazzo.

This looks interesting. The one thing that bothers me is those wheels looking disproportionate

Design reminds me of the Carnival as well as the Ertiga but it does look interesting.
Interiors look premium and smart.
Wheels look a bit too small which ruins the otherwise good design.

It looks like a cheaper Kia Carnival, I don't know if members here felt the same or not. Though a petrol engine for it?
MG is definitely targeting the Ertiga but then again as per the little experience I had with Hector, The Ertiga would be a better car to drive thanks to the K Series engine compared to the 360M. I didn't like the interiors as well, it's too basic for the current times and the overall cabin just doesn't seem to have the premium appeal.

After tasting the success with MG-Hector and good response to ZS-WV, the MG is coming with more models for indian market, as reported in Autocar.
https://www.autocarindia.com/car-new...xt-year-416136.
Like Kia, They are establishing brand by low volume, high margin and less crowded segments.Interesting products lined up are
1] 360 M- 6 seater, in Ertiga/Marazzo segment-showcased in Autoexpo
2]Gloster-SUV-showcased above-loops imposing SUV,largest in their lineup
3]G10 MPV-
After these,they are entering sub 10 lakh( mass market) segments. So the chinese are coming to India full throttle.
