MG Motor has got a bunch of exciting SUVs in its stable. Be it the MG Hector, MG Hector Plus, MG ZS EV or the MG Gloster, the British auto brand has earned a reputation for producing some futuristic cars with the right mix of tech and practicality. MG Astor, the latest sports utility vehicle, promises to take the same blend a step forward.
To ensure the vehicle is coveted as the best SUV in India, the MG Astor gets features unheard of in this segment. For instance, it gets the autonomous level 2 vehicle tag, which none of the competitors offers; even the segment-above cars don’t offer it. Let’s take a look at other such advanced features that makes MG Astor a preferred choice.
Besides the ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistant System), which assists in safe driving, there are a host of other features that enhance the driving experience of the MG Astor. The MG SUV gets a six-way electrically adjustable driver seat, which ensures the driver gets their perfect position before setting off to play around on the road with the astonishing Astor. Unlike other cars, the SUV gets a manually adjustable co-passenger seat for the comfortable seating of the fellow first-row occupant.
With the correct driving position, you can alter the steering setting according to your taste and mood. You get the option to choose among three different steering modes – Dynamic, Normal, and Urban. This feature is unique to the Astor as no other car offers such an adjustable steering option. The Urban is mainly for city driving where you are in for regular business. It requires less input and works well for daily commute from home to office and vice versa.
Switch to the Dynamic mode and you will instantly notice a difference in the drive. It becomes more spirited and engaged as the steering weighs up. You get that race car feel while driving in this steering mode.
The Normal steering mode is a happy medium between Urban and Dynamic. The steering isn’t too light as in the Urban setup nor too heavy as in the Dynamic mode.
Personal AI assistant
Another unique way to enhance your driving experience in the MG Astor is the introduction of a personal AI assistant. There is a small emoticon on the dash, which looks towards you when you talk to it. It responds and keeps you entertained right through your journey.
Whether you need to know the route towards your next destination, want to know more about something you recently saw, or want to hear some jokes, the personal AI assistant does it all for you. It takes references from the most authentic source of information – Wikipedia. So, you know the info you’re getting is reliable, just like your Astor. It greets you when you strike the conversation and wishes you on your favourite festivals in its own unique style.
With seamless connectivity from Jio, the MG Astor gets prominent applications that enhance your driving experience. Be it music, AI-powered maps, on the go insurance, or booking your parking in advance, the i-SMART Hub assists you everywhere. It’s an aggregator of services and subscriptions hosted on the infotainment unit of the MG Astor.
With numerous features and enhanced quality, the MG Astor is the go-to car, be it for city driving or a road trip with your family and friends.
