In the last one year we have seen a lot of new entrants in the mid-size SUV segment. MG Motor was one such brand who launched Hector SUV in the market and quickly became popular. The brand and SUV became so popular that MG had to stop accepting bookings from customers as they were not able to meet rising demand. Later, the car had a long waiting period and now it is a very common sight on our roads. Here we have a video from Hector owner who describes the experience of owning the SUV and also the cost of servicing it at 15,000 kms.
The video has been uploaded by Jitendra Singh on his youtube channel.

The owner then goes on to say that he has a daily running of over 100 kms and the diesel Hector SUV is returning him a fuel economy of around 17-18 kmpl which includes driving in both city and highways. If it is driven in highways it can easily return around 20 kmpl and in city conditions it gets 13-14 kmpl. The 2.0 litre turbocharged diesel engine in Hector generates a maximum of 170 Ps and 350 Nm of torque and comes with a manual gearbox only.
Then the video shows the servicing part of the Hector inside the service centre.
