MG Gloster Blackstorm Exterior
The dimensions of the SUV are the same as those of the standard Gloster. It is 4,985mm long, 1,926mm wide, and 1,867mm tall. The main change that comes with this edition is the new look of the SUV. MG Motor has featured an all-black theme for its premium SUV. This use of the black theme was already employed by Tata Motors in their ‘Dark Edition’, Maruti Suzuki in their ‘Black Edition,’ and Volkswagen with their ‘Deep Black Pearl’ editions.
MG Motor offers two paint options for the Blackstorm edition: Metal Black and Metal Ash. Other parts of the SUV also receive the black treatment, such as the roof rails, tail lamp and headlamp housings, fog lamp housing, window trim, and the alloy wheels. Red accents can also be spotted on the headlamps, brake calipers, front and rear bumpers, and the wing mirrors. The inclusion of the red elements in the black theme adds to the sportiness of the SUV.
MG Gloster Blackstorm Interior
The new edition comes with an all-black interior upholstery. The red accents can also be spotted inside the cabin, on the steering and dashboard. The Blackstorm retains the main features of the regular Gloster. This includes the 12-way adjustable driver’s seat, 8-way adjustable passenger’s seat, panoramic sunroof, etc. It also gets the ADAS safety features like lane change assist and adaptive cruise control.
MG Gloster Blackstorm will be available in 6- and 7-seater options. The 6-seater features six captain seats, whereas the 7-seater comes with a bench for the third row. MG has also revealed an 8-seater variant for the regular Gloster, with bench seats in the middle and the last row.

Both of them come mated to an 8-speed gearbox. The 4WD, however, gets a BorgWarner transfer case with a shift-on-fly system.
