Scoop! More dope on the MG Astor; to be revealed on Sep 15

The MG Astor will compete with the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushaq and the upcoming VW Taigun.

MG is gearing up to launch the Astor in the Indian market this festive season. The SUV will be officially revealed on September 15, 2021.

We can now share more details about its variant line-up, features and engine options.

MG Astor variants:

The MG Astor is likely to be offered in five variants - Style, Super, Smart, Sharp and Savvy. We already know that the SUV will come equipped with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), which include safety aids like Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Departure Prevention, Intelligent Headlamp Control (IHC), Rear Drive Assist (RDA) and Speed Assist System. ADAS along with 6 airbags and 17-inch alloys will be offered on the top-spec Savvy trim.

MG Astor engine & transmission:

The Astor will be offered with two petrol engine options. The 1.5-litre engine is said to be similar to the one in the Hector, albeit in a lower tune. It will be offered with either a manual gearbox or continuously variable transmission (CVT).

The 1.3-litre turbo-petrol is the more potent of the two and will be offered with a 6-speed automatic.

While MG is yet to announce the official launch date for the Astor, some dealerships have started taking pre-bookings for a token amount of Rs. 50,000. It is said that cars will be available by the end of October.

The Astor will be offered in at least five colour options - White, Red, Orange, Black and Silver.
