Have you booked MG Astor as your new SUV, deliveries of the car might get delayed

New Delhi:  MG Astor, the latest car that was launched by Morris Garages or MG motors in India could get delayed in terms of its delivery.

The shortage of chips and semiconductors in the market has caused the delay in delivery of the MG Astor, said Gaurav Gupta, Chief Commercial Office of MG Motor India.

“We are all facing a situation very unprecedented. The supply of chips and semiconductors are very uncertain and very dynamic,” Gupta said.

The Astor SUV is powered by a 1.5L 4-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine and 1.3L turbocharged petrol engine options.

While the 1.5L engine offers a power of 110bhp and 144Nm of torque, the 1.3L turbo charged engine offers 140bhp of power and maximum torque of 220Nm. The 1.5 L engine gets an option for a manual gearbox as well as an 8 speed automatic gearbox. However, the 1.3 L engine gets only an option for automatic gearbox.

Some of the important features of the MG Astor include adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, speed assist system, blind spot detection, intelligent headlamp control and much more.

In terms of dimensions the SUV has dimensions of 4323 mm x 1809 mm x 1653 mm (length x width x height). The wheelbase of the car is 2580 mm. The design at the front has a hexagonal design with a honeycomb pattern. Internal features include panoramic sky roof, driver armrest with storage, rear seat armrest with cup holder, rear seat middle headrest etc.

The SUV gets LED projector headlamps at the front along with LED DRL. The SUV also gets fog lamps too. The wheels of the SUV are 17 inches.

The automaker aims to deliver its batch 1, which includes first 5,000 cars, in the current calendar year.

“But just in case, there’s a spillover to next year, I can assure you all batch 1 customers will be protected at the launch pricing,” Gaurav Gupta added.

The MG Astor compact SUV was reportedly launched in India last month with prices starting at Rs 9.78 lakh for the base ‘Style’ variant, while the top-of-the-line ‘Sharp (O)’ variant is priced at Rs 17.38 lakh.
