MG Astor will be offered in 8 trims, 20 variants on offer – Astor will challenge rivals like Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushak and Volkswagen Taigun
Following the success of its Hector and Gloster SUVs, MG Motor will soon enter the highly competitive C-segment SUV space. The MG Astor is expected to be launched early next month. Earlier, the official media campaign has begun at Buddh International Circui, also known as BIC, in Greater Noida.
Apart from this, the type approval certificates have revealed the different trims and variants of the Astor. MG has provided a wide selection, which should make it easy for the customers to choose the most suitable variant based on their specific needs and preferences.
MG Astor Trims and Variants
MG Astor will be offered in 8 trims. These are Style, Super, Smart STD, Smart, Sharp STD, Sharp, Savvy and Savvy Red. There will be two engine options for the Astor, a 1.5-litre NA petrol motor and a 1.3-litre turbo petrol unit. While the larger capacity engine will get both manual and CVT transmission options, the turbo engine will get a 6-speed torque-converter automatic gearbox.
For the 1.5-litre MT, trim options will be Style, Super, Smart STD, Smart, Sharp STD and Sharp. For the 1.5-litre CVT, the Style trim is not available while the Savvy and Savvy Red have been included. The same 7 trim levels will also be available with the 1.3-litre turbo motor.
As is evident, the base style trim will only be offered with the 1.5-litre MT option. Keeping the Style trim available for the budget conscious, MG is probably pushing the customers to go for the Astor automatic variant.
For those who like new experiences, the best trim levels will be the Savvy and Savvy Red. This is where they can access a wide range of features, including high-tech options like the Autonomous Level 2 Advanced Driver Assistant System (ADAS) and an AI-based personal assistant. The dual-tone Sangria Red interior theme offered with the Savvy Red variant looks absolutely stunning.
