MG Motor India has teased its upcoming Toyota Fortuner rivaling Gloster on the company website. It was first showcased in India at the Auto Expo 2020 and was even spotted undisguised recently in spy pictures.

Though the Gloster has been officially teased, its launch is still months away. The very next product by the Chinese owned British car maker will be the Hector Plus which will come out in July.

For the uninitiated, the Gloster is a rebadged version of the Maxus D90 which sells in the Chinese market. Apart from that, the same SUV is also sold as the LDV D90. SAIC which is the owner of MG, also owns Maxus and LDV as subsidiary brands.
