MG Motors isn’t the first carmaker in India to sell special editions and certainly won’t be the last. Tata Motors has been offering Dark Editions for it’s vehicles for quite some time and they’re successful as it helps them increase sales of their vehicles. Full Black vehicles is something that appeals to the Indian Market making them buy those vehicles. MG wants to keep with the trend as well by introducing the Black Storm Edition on May 29th.
The MG Gloster rivals the Toyota Fortuner, Skoda Kodiaq, Volkswagen Tiguan, and Jeep Meridian.
