MG Motor has officially showcased its India-spec flagship SUV at the Auto Expo 2020 that will rival the Ford Endeavour and Toyota Fortuner. Christened as Gloster, the full-size SUV is a 7-seater vehicle and is based on the Maxus D90, which is sold by another brand under SAIC Motor Corporation.

The large SUV by MG Motor comes in a pack with a lot of comfort and convenience features like a panoramic sunroof, a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, three-zone climate control system, an eight-inch fully-digital instrument cluster, a 360-degree camera and electrically-adjustable front seats with heating, cooling and massage function.

Though the final spec sheet for the Gloster SUV is yet-to-be-announced, the massive exterior design ensures a large cabin which will provide lots of room in all three rows. The dimensions of the upcoming SUV reveals that it is pretty big in size. It measures 5,005mm in length, 1,932mm in width, and 1,875mm in height. The wheelbase of the car is 2,950mm.

Mechanically, the MG Gloster is expected to be offered with a 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel engine that will produce 218HP of maximum power along with a 480Nm of peak torque. The engine will further come mated to a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic gearbox while the power will be sent to all four wheels.

We can expect the new product by MG Motor to be priced between INR 35-40 lakhs (ex-showroom) because Gloster SUV will be assembled in India with a low amount of localization. MG’s Hector has proved to be a big success for the brand that drastically impacted the mid-size SUV segment and now things seem to be more spiced up once Gloster will be there to compete in the premium SUV segment.

2020 Mahindra Thar Exhaust Sound Revealed (Video): The next-gen model of the Mahindra Thar is one of the most awaited SUVs from the brand that is expected to be unveiled in the coming months. The SUV has been spotted multiple time testing on the Indian roads, though the recently uploaded video of the updated Thar by “Vikram Singh Vlogs” has left the audience awestruck. The video shows the exhaust note of the SUV when it is accelerated above 80 kmph while at the same time offers a quick glimpse of the updated dual pod instrument cluster.

The brand has offered the updated SUV with a BS6-compliant engine in addition to some major design updates. The all-new 2020 Mahindra Thar will be capable of offering a more refined ride since the engine will cater to the more stringent emission norms that will be effective in India from April 1, 2020.

The next-gen Mahindra Thar has been imparted with an upright stance while the overall muscular profile accentuates its rugged appeal. The seven-slat vertical front grille and the wide front bumper remain more or less the same while the overall boxy silhouette with the round headlight design and flared up wheel arches accentuates it further.

The all-new dual-pod instrument cluster adds to the premium look of the SUV while the brand has offered a vertical MID display in the middle of the speedometer and the tachometer which offers apt riding data. In addition to this, the interior of the updated SUV will feature a touchscreen infotainment system compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The 2020 Mahindra Thar will get cruise control, automatic climate control and more cabin space for additional comfort.

The recent unveiling of the India-spec Volkswagen Taigun ahead of the Auto Expo 2020 confirms that the carmaker is all set to enter the mid-size SUV segment. The production model of the car will launch in 2021 and it will resemble closely to the Skoda’s Vision IN concept. Both the SUVs will be the first products under the MQB A0 IN platform that will also form the basis of other future products for India.

The design of the Volkswagen Taigun SUV echoes the international T-Cross SUV, though the car is longer for India with more rear-seat space and enhanced comfort. The 2,651mm wheelbase is about 100mm longer than the Euro-spec T-Cross. The India-spec model of the VW Taigun has 205mm of ground clearance. The brand has worked on the design elements too. The bonnet of the SUV gets a more angular look while the brand has used a lot of chrome on the grille and bumpers.

Inside the car, it sports a multi-layered dashboard that places the touchscreen infotainment system high-up and in-line with the all-digital instrument cluster. There is a good and solid feel to all controls that looks neat throughout. The rear seat also looks decently good with reasonable legroom. In terms of features, the VW Taigun gets an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system which is further expected to get new-gen connectivity features. The SUV will come loaded with ample safety equipment that would be closely related to Latin America-spec VW T-Cross that received a 5-star safety rating from Latin NCAP.

Mechanically, we are expecting the SUV to be powered by a 1.5-litre four-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine that produces 130HP of maximum power. There will be no diesel engine option but the brand may consider launching a CNG variant to minimise the running costs. The products by VW have always been priced on the higher side when compared to their respective rivals but we can expect the things to change with the launch of Taigun in the Indian market.

SRK Designs, a very famous virtual automotive design studio has recently unveiled a rendering of the upcoming Maruti Suzuki Futuro-e concept that is expected to make its official debut at the Auto Expo 2020. The brand has recently revealed the official teaser image of the concept while more details are expected to be revealed shortly.

Just like the Maruti’s Future-S concept showcased at the Auto Expo 2018 resulted in the production of the S-Presso featuring similar designing traits, one can further expect the Futuro-e concept-based production variant of an electric SUV with notable similarities to be revealed in the coming months.

The recently released video by SRK Designs showcases the Maruti Suzuki WagonR that has been tweaked from the front fascia to make way for the Futuro-e concept. The traditional front grille of the WagonR has been replaced while the Suzuki logo has been imparted a wider stance.

The rectangular headlight setup has also been tweaked and the front profile now features a sharper headlight design adding to the Futuro-e concept’s premium appeal. The front bumper of the concept has been offered blacked-out detailing by SRK Designs while the fog lamps have also been integrated neatly inside the bumper. The sleeker LED DRLs are now attached to an LED strip horizontally running across them.

Maruti Suzuki is expected to base the production model of its upcoming electric SUV on the Futuro-e concept with a 5-seat layout as well as a coupe-like silhouette. The front and rear fenders of the SUV are expected to get a muscular profile while the sporty appeal will be further accentuated by smaller pillars. The sloping windshield design flowing to the rear will impart Futuro-e concept an overall sportier outlook while the cabin will be spacious enough for accommodating the passengers with ease.

Since the brand is focusing on imparting the upcoming product with an unconventional design, different from the mainstream SUVs, one can expect the Futuro-e concept-based SUV to be equipped with unique alloy wheels as well as a funkier tail lamp setup.

The all-new Futuro-e concept from the brand is expected to be unveiled with the much-anticipated Maruti Suzuki WagonR’s electric version. Once launched in India, the SUV based on the new concept will compete in the market with the likes of Tata Nexon EV and the upcoming Mahindra eXUV300.

The next-gen Toyota Fortuner has been spotted testing for the first time in Thailand. One of the most popular SUVs in the Indian market, the current-gen model of the Fortuner was launched back in 2015 while has not been offered any significant changes from the past five years. One can further expect the updated variant of the SUV to launch in India by the end of 2020 or in early 2021.

Though the recently spotted next-gen Toyota Fortuner has been heavily camouflaged, the SUV is expected to feature a revised exterior design language in addition to the redesigned front fascia. Carrying forward the dominating stance, the front profile of the SUV features redesigned grille as well as the front bumper. In addition to this, the customers can also expect some minor updates offered to the alloy wheels setup as well as the rear profile. The SUV is further expected to feature horizontal fog-lamp inserts.

The 2.8-litre diesel engine is further expected to be discontinued.

Once launched in India, the Toyota Fortuner facelift will compete in the market with the likes of Ford Endeavour, Skoda Kodiaq, Volkswagen Tiguan, Honda CR-V, Isuzu MU-X and more. The brand is also expected to update the current-gen Fortuner variant with a BS6-compliant engine in the coming months which will significantly increase its price tag in the Indian market.

According to recent reports, Maruti Suzuki is planning to target the Indian SUV segment with the addition of a host of new products in the said segment in the coming months. Some reports also suggest that the brand is planning to launch the 5-door Jimny SUV in the Indian market which will essentially take the place of recently-discontinued Maruti Gypsy in the brand’s portfolio.

The earlier reports also suggested that the brand was all set to bring in the Maruti Jimny as the next-gen Gypsy in the Indian market, though considering no official confirmation from the brand, all the speculations were turned down by the media. Since the SUV segment is witnessing robust sales in the Indian market, targeting the market with the introduction of a 5-door Jimny will be one of the vital steps to stay ahead in the competition.

The next-gen Gypsy or the upcoming Jimny will be placed in the brand’s portfolio just below the Maruti Vitara Brezza. In the international markets, the brand currently offers the Jimny as a 3-door model which is powered by a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that is capable of generating maximum power of 102HP and a peak torque of 130Nm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox while the 4-speed CVT transmission is also available for the customers.

One can further expect the India-spec 5-door Jimny SUV to feature the same mechanical bits and pieces as compared to its international-spec variant though the wheelbase is expected to be increased to accommodate more doors. The brand is expected to offer a fresh lineup of SUVs in India in the coming years to compete in the market with the likes of best-selling products like Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos and more. In addition to this, Maruti is also working on launching the Grand Vitara in the Indian market though there has been no official confirmation received on same.
