MG Motor India is preparing to launch its fourth SUV in our market, the MG Astor, which will be unveiled in its entirety today during a virtual exhibition starting at 11:30 am IST. MG says the Astor name is derived from the Raytheon Sentinel, an airborne battlefield and ground surveillance aircraft formerly operated by the Royal Air Force. Furthermore, MG confirmed that the Astor will become the second SUV in the midsize SUV segment to feature Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) after the Mahindra XUV700, and also the second MG SUV to feature ADAS after the Gloster flagship SUV.
What will definitely turn heads is what’s on the MG Astor’s dash. MG has equipped the Astor with a robot powered by artificial intelligence (AI), which will act as the driver’s personal assistant. Read more about it here.
MG says the Astor will have ‘Level 2’ ADAS, which will use mid-range radars and a multipurpose camera to enable features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, and traffic warning. Lane Change, Lane Departure Prevention, Intelligent Headlight Control, Rear Driving Assist and Speed Assist System.
MG also confirmed that the Astor will have a ‘Celestial’ grille and a two-tone red and black interior theme, one of three interior themes to be offered. In terms of engines, the Astor is expected to come with two gasoline engine options, and a diesel engine is unlikely to be offered.
