The soon-to-be-launched SUV will also come equipped with heated ORVMs, carandbike can confirm. The body-coloured ORVMs on the MG Astor SUV will be power-adjustable featuring turn indicators. The MG Astor will be the fourth product from the brand in India that is expected to be launched soon. The carmaker says the name ‘Astor’ is derived from Raytheon Sentinel, a Bombardier Global Express modified for the Royal Air Force (RAF), UK. The Autonomous Level 2 MG Astor is powered by mid-range radars and a multi-purpose camera that can realize a series of advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS).

The aesthetics are highlighted by a radial pattern on the front grille, while the tungsten steel electroplated material gives it a bling factor. The contrast of light and dark further highlights the three-dimensional effect of each flashing cell. While the cabin is yet to be revealed, the teaser images from the British automaker suggest that it will sport a unique ‘Dual Tone Sangria Red’ interior of Astor, which is one of the three interior themes.
