There’s a reason why luxury cars are so popular in the Indian market. It’s not just the aspirational value that lures car buyers towards these premium cars. Luxury cars are synonymous with refinement, feel-good factor, and exclusivity which mainstream cars don’t offer. However, there has been a recent trend where many luxury car owners seem to be opting for an MG as their next car. Is this is a new trend which will become a common practice in the Indian car scene? Let’s find out:
A New Trend?
The most recent instance of this trend was a Mercedes-Benz E Class owner exchanging his car for a MG Gloster Diesel 2.0 Twin Turbo 4×4 6 seater Sharp trim. Recently, a Jaguar XF owner replaced his luxury car for an MG Gloster. Not just the Gloster, many luxury car owners have opted for other MG cars as well. Last year, a Range Rover owner decided to go for the Hector instead of another luxury car. It seems that luxury car owners have come to appreciate the feature loaded and well appointed interiors of the MG Motors range. We expect more luxury car owners to transition to MG in the future.
