MG Motors is planning to expand rapidly in our country. After the launch of Hector SUV, the company has confirmed to launch its eZS electric SUV later this year. Not only that, according to a recent report by Autocar , it is being expected that before Diwali 2020 MG Motor will bring another SUV, the Maxus D90, from its parent company SAIC’s portfolio to the Nepalese market.
Talking about the design, the Maxus D90 is built on a light truck platform and sports a chunky SUV design, a massive front cowl, a large and long cabin, adaptive LED headlamps, and large dual-tone alloy wheels. If we see the dimensions of the car, it is quite a bit larger than the Hector, which is not a small SUV. The dimensions of the Maxus D90 are 5005mm in length, 1932mm in width, and 1875mm of height, and has 2950mm wheelbase. The Maxus D90 is even bigger on every front than the Mahindra Alturas G4.
Mechanically in the Chinese market, the Maxus D90 SUV comes with a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine that generates 224 HP of max power with 360 Nm of peak torque. The car comes mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox. A source at the company told Autocar that MG Motor is working on the diesel variant which is likely to be introduced. The car will come with a four-wheel drive option and a low-range transfer case. The ground clearance of the car is 210mm and it is available with seven drive modes: Automatic, Motion, Sandy, Snow, Economy, Mud, and Rock.
Coming to the interiors, the Maxus D90 will come with a feature-rich cabin. The China-spec model gets a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, an 8.0-inch digital instrument cluster, cooled/heated seats, three-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof, a 360-degree camera and more. In terms of safety, we can expect the model to come with ESP, six airbags, ABS with EBD, and ISOFIX child seat mounts. The more advanced safety features which are available on international models are still unconfirmed whether they will make to the spec model or not.
