MG Gloster in similar fashion to the other departments, is generously equipped in this department as well. It gets all the bells and whistles one would expect from a vehicle in this segment.

Addition of wireless charging is a nice touch and overall, the Gloster has enough interior and communication features to keep the passengers entertained on long journeys.

Conclusion

MG Gloster is an SUV which promises a lot to the customers and to the brand itself. It has a lot of expectations and a lot riding on itself and with the right ingredients, it might just pull it off. It is a big vehicle and has ample road presence, has a powerful engine and ample space in the interior as well. Gloster gets ample features in all departments and this makes it difficult for the potential buyers to come to a purchase decision. From the above analysis, the most value for money trim is Sharp (6 or 7-str) as it gets almost all the features at a reasonable price.
