MG Astor facelift leaked ahead of launch; Exterior & interior revealed

The updated MG Astor is expected to be launched in India soon.

The upcoming MG Astor facelift has been revealed via leaked images. The SUV is expected to be launched in India soon.

The updated MG Astor looks rather striking in its new avatar. The SUV has a redesigned front bumper with a diamond mesh grille. It is flanked by reprofiled headlamps, with a blue strip stretching across the front fascia.

The rear end of the Astor looks more familiar though. The shape of the taillights has been retained, but the internals look new. The SUV has a redesigned rear bumper, a roof spoiler with an integrated stop lamp, and a rear wiper. The updated Astor also gets new dual-tone alloy wheels.

The spy images also provide a glimpse of the car’s interior. The Astor gets an all-black cabin with dual screens and a 3-spoke steering wheel. The centre console has been updated and now features an electronic parking brake and a redesigned gear lever.

Technical details of the new Astor are still unknown. That being said, the current model is offered with two engine options. These include a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that makes 108 BHP and 144 Nm, paired with a 5-speed manual and CVT and a 1.3-litre turbo-petrol engine that puts out 138 BHP and 220 Nm. It is paired with a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
