The MG Astor mid-sized SUV recently made its debut in the Indian market, with prices falling between Rs. 9.78 to 16.78 Lakhs. However, that wasn’t all. During the launch, the company quoted that the “Level-2 ADAS” onboard the Astor, will be available as an option on the top-spec Sharp AT variants but did not give any idea about its pricing. Now the time has come, when MG Motors has launched the all-new top-spec “Savvy” variant of the Astor that comes with Level-2 ADAS as standard. Read on to know what makes it so special.
The Savvy Trim
As promised by MG Motors, the top of the line trim of the MG Astor mid-size SUV is here, and it comes with Level-2 Advanced Drives Assistance System as standard. But what makes the variant so special is its pricing. The Savvy trim of the Astor SUV is priced at starting price of Rs. 15.78 Lakhs (Ex-Showroom). This makes the MG Astor Savvy, the cheapest car in India to come with Level-2 ADAS onboard.
With the Savvy trim now added to the variant lineup, the Astor is now offered in a total of five trims—The Style, Super, Smart, Sharp and Savvy trims. For the top of the line Savvy variant, the transmission is limited to automatic only.
Buyers get an option to either bring home the Savvy trim mated to the 1.5-litre petrol CVT, or the one that comes mated to the 1.3-litre petrol AT. The former comes at a price of RS. 15.78 Lakhs going all the way up to Rs. 15.88 Lakhs for the Sangria Red. The latter comes in a Sangria Red theme by default and is priced at Rs. 17.38 Lakhs (Ex-Showroom).
What does the Savvy Trim Offers?
For those wondering what the extra money gets, the ADAS package onboard brings in a host of additional features. This includes Level-2 ADAS features such as automatic emergency braking, blind-spot detection, adaptive cruise control lane departure warning and lane-keeping assist. Additionally, other safety features such as up to six airbags, brake assist, ABS with EBD, ESP, traction control, hill start and hill descent control, all make their way onboard the Savvy Trim.
Feature-wise too, the Savvy wouldn’t disappoint as it packs all that the mid-size SUV has on its plate. This includes inclusions like a mammoth 10.1-inch touch infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple Car Play and connected car technology. There will also be an all-digital 7.0-inch instrument cluster. And not to forget, that the Astor is also India’s first car with AI inside, along with CAAP services.
The Bottom Line
With the Savvy variant, MG Motors has already won the masses through aggressive pricing. Being India’s cheapest vehicle with L-2 ADAS onboard, the MG Astor Savvy is already a winner. With official bookings commencing from October 21st, the Astor will lock horns with the veterans as well as newbies such as the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushaq, Volkswagen Taigun etc.
