MG Astor SUV was officially launched in India at a starting - and introductory - price point of 9.78 lakh. The Astor from MG Motor India will compete against a long list of well-established as well as new players in the mid-size SUV space but has a number of its own unique propositions to possibly wow prospective customers.

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.
