MG could bring a comprehensively updated variant of the Astor to the market in the coming months

The MG Astor has been a strong seller for the company, especially against rivals such as the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, Toyota UC Hyryder, Honda Elevate, VW Taigun and Skoda Kudhaq. The crowded compact SUV segment has several players and the Astor manages to stand out with its premium cabin, comfortable ride and an extensive set of features.

That said, MG is gearing up to bring a comprehensive upgrade to the Astor. The facelifted model was spotted undisguised recently revealing a styling overhaul over the outgoing model. The design updates will give the Astor a new look, while the cabin will also get new features and revised upholstery, among other upgrades. MG is unlikely to change the powertrain options with the facelifted model.
