The MG Hector is one of the most awaited SUVs in India right now. It will be launched next month but most of the details and other information about it is already out in public. Apart from being the largest vehicle in its segment, the Hector will also come with a host of segment first features and a hybrid drivetrain. While the official studio pictures of the SUV are already out, here are some real-life shots of the Hector which show how does it look in regular conditions. These images were posted in the Facebook Group 4×4 INDIA.
The front end of the Hector features an unconventional but attractive design where the headlamps are placed below their usual positions and LED DRLs in place of headlamps. The big grille at the centre is flanked by LED DRLs on both ends and a dollop of chrome has been added around the grille and the DRLs to make the Hector look appealing. The top-end variant of the car also gets LED projector headlamps. The rear gets a roof-mounted rear spoiler and shark-fin antenna. All the variants of the vehicle get the LED tail lamps.
The all-black interiors of the HEctor here are quite spacious and are filled to brim with features. The major here is the huge 10.8-inch portrait style touch screen infotainment system which is AI enabled and comes with an eSIM that keeps the vehicle connected to the Internet all the time. The instrument cluster also gets a 7-inch display which displays numerous functions and information.
The rear seats seem to be quite spacious and going by the size of the vehicle, that should be the case too. Rear AC vents are present on the vehicle and the Hector will also get a panoramic sunroof. The top variants of the Hector get leather upholstery. Another noteworthy feature here is that the rear seats of the Hector can be reclined by 25 degrees. Armrests with cupholders and flat rear floor improve comfort at the rear.
Talking about the engines available on the Hector, MG will offer both petrol and diesel engine options with the SUV. The petrol engine will be a 1.5-litre petrol unit that will pump out 143 PS of power and 250 Nm of peak torque. The diesel engine, on the other hand, will be the 2.0-litre Multijet unit that produces a maximum power of 170 PS and 350 Nm of peak torque. MG will also offer a 48V hybrid system as an optional feature with the top three petrol variants and the Hector will be the only vehicle in its segment to come with a hybrid drivetrain. Talking about the gearbox options, the petrol variants will get a 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission as an option while all other variants get a 6-speed manual gearbox.
