Interesting news coming out from the house of MG. The British carmaker has taken to its social media to tease the upcoming Gloster Black Storm Edition. The company has put out a teaser video that shows a dark silhouette of the SUV.
What Is The ‘Black Storm’ Edition?
We also see a ‘Black Storm’ badge positioned on the front fender. Even though the latest edition does give away a lot of details. But we expect the Black Storm model to come with a fair bit of styling updates and new features. The MG Gloster Black Storm version is most likely similar to what we see with the Dark Edition of Tata Motors. Thus we anticipate it to feature a black shade and some blacked-out elements on the exterior. We could see the all-black treatment extend up to the car’s alloy wheels. Meanwhile, we assume the Black Storm Edition could also feature some red accents on the sides.
MG could also offer a new interior theme and features such as new leather upholstery with this edition. In terms of pricing, we expect that the Black Storm will retail more than the standard model, which is available at an introductory price of INR 32.59 lakh (ex-showroom).
