New MG Astor: Variants explained

MG Motor India launched the Astor mid-size SUV in the country today, with introductory prices starting at Rs 9.78 lakh (ex-showroom, all India). The model will rival the likes of the Kia Seltos, Renault Duster, and the Hyundai Creta.

Powering the MG Astor are two engine options including a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder, NA petrol engine and a 1.3-litre, three-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine. The former is tuned to produce 108bhp and 144Nm of torque, and is offered with a six-speed manual unit or a CVT unit. The latter, which produces 138bhp and 220Nm of torque, is offered only with a six-speed torque converter automatic unit. We have driven the Astor, and you can read our review here.
