MG Motor made their entry into the Indian market last year with Hector mid size SUV. It became an instant hit and helped MG establish themselves as a brand in the market. MG Motor has already launched couple of other models in the market but Hector still remains the most affordable offering in the line up. The Hector has now been in the country for almost an year and it seems like MG Motor is planning to launch a facelifted version of Hector in the market soon. The upcoming Hector facelift was spotted testing and here we have a video that shows the car in detail.
The video has been uploaded by Barodian boy Jatin on his youtube channel. The images were taken by the vlogger and was put in a video format later. In terms of design, the upcoming Hector looks the same as the current version. The car is not even camouflaged except for the MG logo. The main difference that one would notice in comparison to the current version is the front grille.
It gets a different type of front grille. The design looks a bit inspired from some of the Mercedes-Benz cars. The front grille is the major difference in the front. Apart from that it still gets the dual function LED DRL, headlamps and fog lamps placed on the lower part of the bumper, faux skid plate and so on.
Moving to the side profile another noticeable changes are the new set of alloys. It is different from the one that is currently available with Hector and Hector Plus. The reflector strip that used to run between the LED tail lamps have also been replaced with a chrome strip in this upcoming version.
These are the changes that were spotted in the upcoming facelifted Hector. In terms of features on the inside, MG Motor will offer all of them that are there in the current version. Hector is currently available in with both petrol and diesel engine options. The diesel version is powered by a 2.0 litre Fiat sourced turbocharged unit which comes with a manual gearbox only. The petrol version is powered by a 1.5 litre unit which comes with a DCT gearbox and the Hybrid version that uses the same engine gets a manual gearbox.
