Its built quality is pretty impressive. It shows off a modern grille at the front along with exquisite automatic LED Projector headlights.
If we look at the interior we find a mesmerizing cabin with the door panels and dashboard made out of a soft-touch material to provide maximum comfort. The truck comes with black leather, electrically adjustable seats that can recline up to 150 degrees while the rear seats are foldable only.
On the infotainment front, we find a large 10-inch screen that can also connect to mobile phones, Apple or Android via Bluetooth to play your favourite songs or podcasts during your journeys. On the front console, there are 2 USB ports to cater to your energy needs. The steering wheel, just like all modern vehicles has a multi-function button for increased comfort. and accessibility.
If safety tops the list of priorities for you then we have some good news! MG Extender is equipped with 4-wheel disc brakes and the full space frame strengthens the body and chassis. There are 6 airbags placed in the front and sides of this massive vehicle and curtain to protect the driver and passenger in the event of a collision. The omnidirectional camera and blind-spot warning system increase visibility – and peace of mind -for the driver.
The truck is powered by a 2-litre common-rail turbo diesel providing 161 horsepower and 375 newton-metres of torque in the 1,500 – 2,400 rev band.
