MG Astor: engine options 

Under the hood, in terms of mechanics, it doesn’t change. An eight-step CVT automatic gearbox or a five-speed manual transmission can be paired with a 1.5-liter, naturally aspirated, four-cylinder petrol engine producing 110 horsepower and 144 Nm. 

A 140hp, 220Nm, 1.3-liter, three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine with a 6-speed torque converter automatic is the alternative engine option, limited only to the top variant.

The Astor is up against strong competition from the Hyundai Creta (which gets a facelift starting next week), Volkswagen Taigun, Kia Seltos, Citroen C5 Aircross, Maruti Grand Vitara, Toyota Hyryder, and Skoda Kushaq. By including additional customer-focused features in the base model, MG hopes to boost the appeal of the slow-selling Astor.
