MG entered Indian market in 2019 with their first product Hector SUV. When launched, Hector was one of the most feature loaded SUV in the segment. It came with features that we had never seen on any SUV in this segment. It quickly became popular among buyers for its looks, features and price. It currently competes with cars like Tata Harrier, Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos in the segment. MG Hector is now a common SUV on our roads and many have also modified their SUV. We have seen several examples of tastefully modified MG Hector SUVs and we have featured some of them on our website as well. Here we have an MG Hector SUV that has been wrapped in gold coloured body wrap.
The images have been shared by vebtorquemotors on their Instagram page. The page does not mention all modifications done to this MG Hector in detail. We have seen several other cars wrapped in gold body wrap in the past but, this is probably the first MG Hector in the country to get such a treatment. The gold wrap on this MG Hector looks quite neat. The SUV seen here in the pictures is a pre-facelift model. The owner has completely wrapped the SUV in gold colour vinyl. This does give it a very unique look and goes well with the overall premium look of the SUV.
All the chrome elements on the MG Hector have been retained. To maintain the premium look. Even the roof and ORVMs of this SUV has been wrapped in gold. The work done on this SUV looks very neat but, is it the best looking MG Hector that we have seen so far? not exactly. We have seen many other modified MG Hectors that look better than this.
MG Motor launched the 2021 version of Hector in the market with cosmetic changes and it now looks a lot more premium both on outside and inside. The interiors now get a tan colour interiors which look premium than the older all black cabin. The interiors are similar to what we have seen in Hector Plus which is the 7-seater version of Hector. Hector now offers features like ventilated front seats, wireless phone charging, updated voice commands that can now understand Hinglish commands and so on.
