New MG Gloster Black Storm teased; India launch soon
MG Motor India has teased the new Gloster Black Storm edition via a short video teaser. As the name suggests, the SUV is likely to feature an all-black treatment. Notably, the Gloster Black Storm could arrive as a special edition model based on the top-spec variant. Currently, the Gloster is available in two trim levels, namely Sharp and Savvy, across two drivetrain options. Also on offer is a six- or seven-seat layout option. Notably, the upcoming Gloster Black Storm may attract a marginally higher premium over the current variants.
MG Gloster Black Storm: Design
If the video teaser is to go by, the upcoming Gloster Black Storm will feature the same design as the on-sale model. The teaser confirms that this SUV edition will feature a badge on its fenders with Black Storm lettering. On top of that, it is expected to bear an all-black paint job and black-painted alloy wheels. MG is also likely to transform the chrome bits into a darker shade.
MG Gloster Black Storm: Interior
The current Gloster comes with a Luxury Brown interior tone. We expect MG to offer a new dark leather upholstery for the upcoming Gloster Black Storm edition. The upholstery could also feature contrast stitching. Meanwhile, the cabin is likely to carry all the bells and whistles, such as a large touchscreen infotainment system, a semi-digital instrument cluster, a 12-speaker sound system, powered front seats with heated/cooled function, PM 2.5 filter, and among others.
