MG Motor has a few different Indian business versions. The launch of Hector Plus 6/7-seater, SUV, Gloster SUV and G10 Luxury MPV have already been confirmed by the British car manufacturer. While the Hector Plus is the first showroom to hit, the Hector is approaching the Diwali season this year. The MG G10, the re-bladed Maxus G10, will be launched early next year. Here are five important facts you should know about the new MG luxury MPV.
1. BIGGER THAN KIA CARNIVAL
The MG G10 is 5,168 mm in length, 1,980 mm in width and 1,928 mm in height with regard to dimensions. The wheelbase of the vehicle is 3210 mm long. The new MG MPV is 53 mm longer and 173 mm taller, with a 150 mm longer wheelbase compared to its rival–Kia Carnival. The Carnival is 5 mm smaller. Luxury MPV of Kia is 5115 mm long, 1985 mm wide and 1740 mm–1755 mm high with a 3060 mm wheelbase.
2. MULTIPLE SEATING CONFIGURATIONS
The G10 with seating configurations –7/8 and9-seats–is offered similar to Kia Carnival. The carmaker unveiled the 9-seater MPV edition at the Auto Expo 2020. While the 7-seater model has the power adjustment with powerful leg rests for the middle-row captain’s chairs, the 9-seater variant comes complete with four rows of seats. Note that the Kia Carnival offers middle-row seats adjustable by hand.
Inside the new MG luxury MPV, several conveniences and advanced connectivity features are available. It incorporates the newest mobile interface with a wide HD touchscreen infotainment device. The list also includes a multi-zone AC unit, a 6-layer stereo, a strong sunroof and a moon roof, a smart tailgate and a rear mounted LED display.
4. MIGHT GET HECTOR’S ENGINE
The carmaker has yet to announce the engine specifications of the India-spec MG G10 MPV. Nevertheless, the powertrains would presumably be shared with MG Hector. It is rumored that the new 2.0L twin-turbo diesel engine could come in the new MG luxury MPV. The vehicle is offered worldwide, with various market-specific engine options.
5. EXPECTED PRICE
The India-bound model (G10 MG) focuses on private purchasers, as opposed to the global markets in which the Maxus G10 mainly serves the fleet sector. The price range is estimated at Rs 20 lakh–Rs 27 lakh (ex showroom). Here it will be placed against Kia Carnival.
