The D90 is a 7-seater SUV that measures 5005 mm in length, 1932 mm in width, 1875 mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2950 mm. This makes it similar in size, if not bigger than the Ford Endeavor and Toyota Fortuner. The teaser Its large nature has also earned it a 5-star ANCAP crash test program (Australia New Car Assessment Program).

Feature highlights in the D90 include a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, cruise control, a digital instrument display, panoramic sunroof and a 360 degree camera. It also comes with other equipment such as tyre pressure monitoring system, blind spot detection and an electric tailgate.  

The international spec D90 is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that produces 224PS of power and 360Nm of torque. It is paired to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission. It is also available in a 4WD option. The India spec MG D90 is likely to be powered by the Hector’s 2.0-litre diesel engine, albeit with slight performance tweaks. 

While MG has yet to reveal a launch date for the D90 SUV, we expect it to launch by the end of 2020, with prices likely to start at Rs 30 lakh (ex-showroom, India). More details on this are likely to be revealed at Auto Expo 2020. Post launch, it will rival the likes of the Ford Endeavour and Toyota Fortuner.
