Astor will take on rivals like Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Tata Harrier, Mahindra XUV700, Volkswagen Taigun and Skoda Kushaq. While it is essentially a petrol-engine-powered version of ZS EV, there are several highlights of Astor even if two stand out the most.

Astor is the country's first AI-powered vehicle and has a mile-long list of driver-assist and safety features. MG is underlining its tech-based automotive company credentials and as such, the Astor could have a place of prominence in its portfolio.

MG Motor India is offering a standard 3+3+3 warranty package on the Astor. This includes warranty of three years for unlimited kilometers, three years of Roadside Assistance and three Labor-Free periodic services. There is also an annual maintenance package which starts at around 16,000.
