MG Motors will soon make its way to the Indian market and their first product, which will be the Hector SUV will be unveiled officially on 15th May. Before the official unveiling, the upcoming SUV has been spotted numerous times on the roads. Here are a few pictures of the vehicles that have been spotted undisguised on the public roads.
The pictures posted on T-BHP shows the MG Hector in different colours too. The MG Hector was spotted in red colour and silver colour on the roads. Since it is the biggest car by dimensions in the segment, it looks huge on the roads and had a massive road presence. The pictures show how the MG Hector from all around and even from the top.
The MG Hector gets a very stylish design with sleek LED DRL that form an extended part of the huge front grille. The headlamp clusters are located lower in the bumper giving a raw look to the SUV. The main headlamps are flanked by chrome stripes and it gets a huge silver insert in the front bumper too.
At the rear, the main design element that catches the eyes is the big chrome insert in the bumper that also gets an integrated exhaust tip. The window line of the MG Hector is tapered and it also gets a lot of chrome underlining the windows. The 17-inch alloy wheels also look quite handsome on the car. The rear tail lamps are also very loud. The huge lamps are connected to each other with a large reflector that adds a brutish look to the SUV.
The MG Hector’s production has already started in India and it will be manufactured at Halol, Gujarat. The Hector will take on the vehicles like Mahindra XUV500 in the Indian market and will offer a slew of first-in-segment features too. Inside, the Hector will offer a massive 10.4-inch vertically mounted touchscreen, which will remind you of the Tesla cars. The instrument cluster of the MG Hector will also get a huge 7-inch digital display.
The picture from the top also reveals the huge panoramic sunroof of the Hector that will be the first-in-segment feature again. Also, it will offer a connected infotainment system with eSIM that will allow the owners to update and diagnose the vehicle without visiting the service centre. The MG Hector gets a 5G ready system and will remain connected to cloud computing all the time.
The MG Hector will get a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine that will produce a maximum power of 143 Bhp and a 2.0-litre Multijet diesel engine that also powers the Jeep Compass and the Tata Harrier. However, the power of the diesel engine is not known for the MG Hector. The petrol variant will also get a 48V mild-hybrid system that will be much more efficient than the regular version of the car.
