New Delhi: MG Motor India launched the new Astor mid-size SUV in India a few days ago and opened the bookings for MG Astor SUV in the country today, and within minutes, it was sold out for 2021, with deliveries to start from the first week of November.
The MG Astor is available for pre-bookings at an initial token amount of Rs 25,000. The carmaker aims to deliver 5,000 units of the MG Astor within this year. MG also announced that the pre-bookings for 2022 are now open on its official website as well as at its dealerships. The MG Astor rivals the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Nissan Kicks, Renault Duster, Skoda Kushaq, Volkswagen Taigun in India and is priced at Rs 9.78 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
Rajeev Chaba, President & MD, MG Motor India, said, “MG Astor is a premium mid-segment SUV with elegant exteriors, luxurious interiors, and futuristic technology. We are ecstatic about the response we have received from the customers. However, given the global chip crisis that the industry is undergoing, we can only supply a limited number of cars this year. We expect supplies to become better from Q1 next year.”
MG Astor is India’s first SUV with first-in-segment autonomous Level-2 technology and comes with a contemporary style. The interior of the MG Astor is premium with soft-touch and high-quality materials. The MG Astor is offered in Style, Super, Smart, and Sharp variants with both manual and automatic gearbox options for its 1.3L turbo-petrol and 1.5L petrol units. The MG Astor also boasts 80+ connected car features, as well as a personal AI unit placed at the centre of the dashboard.
