While much has been said about how the new MG Hector will look like, this piece of news has got it all covered. We have come across a fresh set of new pictures, which completely reveal how the new upcoming MG Hector will look like. Till now, we have only imagined how the SUV will look like, as it has always been spied with camouflage wrap while on trial runs. However, this is the first time the new Hector was spotted by hertstintsandwraps without any camouflage wrap over it.
As expected, the new upcoming MG Hector gets a bolder-looking grille at the front, which looks bigger than the current version of the SUV. Featuring dark chrome surrounds, the grille now has dark chrome diamond studded inserts within it. The sleek daytime running LEDs positioned above look the same as before, with the dark chrome garnish below them stretching towards the grille.
The headlamps have been restyled this time, and have slanted edges all around, unlike the C-shaped housings in the presently available version of the Hector. However, like before, the headlamp housings continue to have LED projectors and LED fog lamps. The front bumper also gets a chrome-finished scuff plate at its bottom part. The new upcoming MG Hector looks almost the same when viewed from the side profile, with the same design for the door panels, front and rear fenders, chrome garnish at the bottom of the door panels, roof rails and 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels.

Updated rear profile
The rear profile has been tweaked a bit, though. While there are no changes to the design of the boot lid and tail lamps, the tail lamps have new LED inserts and now come with a new LED light bar between the tail lamps, replacing the black garnish which was introduced in the facelifted version of the SUV. There is a new chrome garnish running across the width of the boot lid below the tail lamps, with a new badging for Hector spread below the license plate housing. The rear bumper has also been restyled with new chrome-finished faux exhaust ports and new black cladding.
This set of pictures does not reveal what the interior of the upcoming new MG Hector will look like. However, MG itself has confirmed that the new version of the Hector will have a bigger 14-inch portrait-style touchscreen infotainment system, restyled dashboard with sleeker AC vents and a full-TFT instrument console. The powertrain options, including a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol with 6-speed manual and CVT gearbox options and a 2.0-litre diesel engine with a 6-speed manual gearbox, are expected to be retained in the new version.
