For many years, the MG Gloster has been a popular vehicle. Though the XUV 700 competes in a higher class, buyers who are searching for a full capacity 7-seater will examine these two. Why? Because it will be stacked with features, just like we expect it to be with the XUV 700?

Features

Considering the price difference between the two, you might wonder why this comparison is even taking place. However, the XUV 700 has a number of impressive characteristics that allow it to compete with the MG Gloster.

One or the other has a tonne of features that anyone in 2021 would expect. Electrically adjustable seats, a large panoramic sunroof, good road presence, and an array of technology. When it comes to Autonomous Driving, the XUV 700 really shines. Level 1 adaptive cruise control on the Gloster is available for a steep price. In terms of features, the XUV 700 will offer the same (or maybe more) at a significantly lower price.

The MG Gloster has an exterior door handle with a diamond cut. It has multi-spoke wheel interiors as well. We can also observe the Ambient Lighting Front Grille in Chrome Decorated Fender and Mirror Garnish with Chrome-plated Front Guard Plate. It also incorporates DLO GArnish into your designs Fog Lamps.

Like the Scorpio, a moderate hybrid system is also envisaged. For example, the MG Gloster comes equipped with a 2L Diesel engine that generates 215HP and 480nm of torque.

Price

The MG Gloster is currently priced between Rs.29,9 to Rs.36,88 Lakh (ex-showroom). According to reports, the Mahindra XUV is projected to be priced around the Rs.20-25,000 bracket when it is released later this year. Because of this, the XUV is significantly less expensive than the MG Gloster.

Final verdict 

Last but not least, the most crucial decision-making point: A full-size SUV buyer looking for value will find the XUV 700 to be a better choice, given the amenities it offers and the price it commands. However, we believe that the MG Gloster, with its leather inside and attention to detail, will be ahead in the luxury segment. You can’t go wrong with either Gloster or XUV700, in our opinion. When it comes to luxury and leather interiors, the MG Gloster is the car of choice. The XUV700 is a great option for someone who wants the best features at a better price!
