The MG Hector has emerged out as one of the top-selling mid-size SUVs on sale in the Indian market. Launched earlier this year, this Hector is also the debut vehicle for MG India and so far, it seems that the British origin-Chinese owned manufacturer has been doing pretty good in the market. While the Hector is a decent all-rounder, a major chink in the whole package right now is the high waiting periods associated with the vehicles. In some cities, the waiting periods are as long as 6 months which is actually something that can avert several buyers. So if you have your heart set upon the Hector but can’t decide to buy it because of the high waiting period, here is an almost new MG Hector that can be had yours almost instantly.
The MG Hector featured here is being sold for Rs. 19.50 lakhs and has been driven for just 1,800 km. Running the plates through the government database, we see that this SUV was registered in August which means it is just around a month old. As for the variant, it is the Sharp 1.5 DCT petrol variant which is the top-end petrol model. The on-road price of the MG Hector Sharp 1.5 DCT petrol in Pune (the vehicle is registered in Pune) is Rs. 20,06,917, which makes this one around 57,000 cheaper than a new model.
This variant comes powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine that pumps out 141 Bhp of power along with 250 Nm of torque. The motor comes mated to a 6-speed Dual-clutch transmission which ensures quick shift times. Since this one has only covered 1,800 km till date, the engine is pretty much new and is probably still in its break-in period.
Coming to the interiors of this Hector, the cabin comes equipped with all the bells and whistles offered by MG since this is the top-end variant. The all-black cabin gets ambient lighting, panoramic sunroof, cooled glove box, fast-charging USB port, 8-speaker system with subwoofer, online real-time navigation, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, 7-inch MID, 6-airbags, push-button start-stop with smart key, remote car operation through a smartphone, PU leather seats, electrically 6-way adjustable driver seat, electric hand brake with the Automatic version and power-adjustable and foldable ORVM. Safety features on the vehicle include ESP. TCS, VSM, Hold Hold Control, ABS, EBD, Brake Assist, and 4 airbags.
Further, the large10.4-inch touchscreen system with internet connectivity is another major highlight of the vehicle. It gets the Artificial Intelligence-powered voice commands which means that one can use their voice to control certain pre-defined functions on the car, including audio control and opening the windows among others. All in all, this used MG Hector is a good buy for anyone who wants to skip the long waiting periods on the SUV.
