MG Gloster vs KIA Telluride vs Hyundai Palisade - COMPARE
7 Seater Full-Size Premium SUV's Upcoming Car Comparison
MG has just launched its Gloster three row full size SUV at very competitive prices. The Gloster competes with the Fortuner and Endeavour but while the Gloster is bigger and has more features than them. The real competition could come from the KIA Telluride and the Hyundai Palisade as and when they are launched in India. Just like the Gloster the Telluride and the Palisade are full size three row SUVs which are quite popular in the US where they are sold. So how does the Gloster compete with the Telluride and the Palisade? Let us take a look.
Looks and Dimensions Comparison
All SUVs are massive and have a lot of presence. All have huge grilles and a lot of chrome. In terms of length the Gloster is 4985mm while the Palisade is 4978mm while the Telluride is 5001mm. All SUVs are also very wide too with the Gloster at 1926mm, Palisade at 1976mm, Telluride at 1988mm. All three though have a distinctive look. The Gloster is more boxy and looks more like a SUV while the Palisade with the huge grille is more like a long luxury crossover. The Telluride is also huge but unlike the Palisade has a smaller grille and less aggressive headlamps, being more of an old school SUV like the Gloster.
Interiors and Features Comparison
All three are huge on space and features as expected with their size. The Gloster has a wheelbase of 2950mm while the Palisade has a wheelbase of 2900mm with the KIA Telluride coming in at 2900mm. The Gloster seems the more spacious SUV but not by much though. In terms of fit and finish all seem very well put together with luxury being there of course. There is leather covered everywhere and also quilted seats on the Hyundai plus MG also offers that. The KIA interior is a bit conservative on that aspect. In terms of features the Gloster has the biggest touch screen at 12 inch plus where the other two are at 10.25 inch. All three offer all the usual luxuries and amenities but the Hyundai has power fold third row while all power powered tailgate opener etc. The Gloster has more tech in the form of autonomous features.
The Gloster has a 2.0 twin turbo diesel with an 8-speed auto along 4x4 and it is a proper 4x4 for offroading too with modes. The Hyundai and KIA in the US have big V6 petrol engines which in India would not work due to the thirst of the engines so in India if they both come, a diesel is very much needed. The KIA and Hyundai do feature drive and offroad modes like the Gloster but they are not for hardcore offroad like the Gloster can or likewise the Gloster is not as car like as the other two.
The Gloster is very aggressively priced from 29 lakhs onwards and the top-end is Rs 35 lakh. Now the other two will not be as cheap and would be much more expensive when and if coming thus that brings a problem since whether there would be takers for these SUVs. The Gloster though as shown gives superb value for money now.
