The MG G10 MPV, which is being offered in China as a Maxus product, was released with revised engines in its new avatar. This arrives now with a significantly revised 2.0 liter turbo-petrol engine and a new 2.0 liter diesel engine.
In the G10 premium MPV, the turbo-petrol engine provides the same output of 224PS and 350Nm while being mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission. The 2.4 liter petrol option for the new G10 in China was discontinued by MG. Its 1.9-liter diesel option, which produced 150PS and 350Nm, was replaced by the new 2.0-liter Maxus model churning out 163PS and 375Nm. In addition to the 6-speed manual the 2.0-liter diesel now gets the option of a modern 8-speed automatic transmission.
This happens to be the same engine as the bi-turbo 2.0 liter diesel engine of the India-bound Fortuner-rival Gloster, although with a single turbocharger. It is planned to provide both engine choices when the G10 is released in India.
Another update to the new G10’s barely translated spec sheet reveals that it will be available in an 8-seater layout in addition to the usual 7-seat and 9-seat layouts. The Maxus G10 debuted as an offering by MG in India at Auto Expo 2020. It is expected to launch as a premium MPV in India with features such as a 3-part panoramic sunroof, powered rear rear sliding doors, power-adjustable front seats, and a large central infotainment system.
