Commenting on the phenomenal response for the Astor, Rajeev Chaba, President and 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.”

The MG Astor is offered in five trim levels, namely Style, Super, Smart, Sharp, and Savvy. The introductory price of this SUV was valid for 2021 only.

Talking about its engine specs, the MG Astor is offered in India with two petrol engine options. The first one is a 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol motor that develops 110 PS of power and 144 Nm of peak torque. This engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and an 8-step CVT.
