MG Gloster Blackstorm Edition Launched | Prices Start At Rs 40.30 Lakhs

SUVs are all about road presence, especially with competitors like Toyota Fortuner in the Indian market; one needs to up its game with the desirability factor. MG Motors India has today launched the Blackstorm edition of its premium SUV, Gloster, to address the sensual appeal with an all-black exterior and interior theme. The special edition is no different than the outgoing standard version, apart from a few cosmetic changes. 

MG Gloster Blackstrom Edition: Exterior 

On the outside, with its all-black theme, Gloster looks quite intimidating. Blackstorm edition gets two paint options-  Metal Black and Metal Ash. Alloys, roof rails, tail-lamp, headlamp housing,  window trim and fog lamp housing get an all-black treatment. It also gets a newly designed blacked-out front grille, now sporting a hexagonal mesh pattern instead of the chrome slat on the standard trim. Red accents are also used – on the headlamps, brake callipers, front and rear bumpers and even wing mirrors.
