- The MG Hector was introduced in the Indian market in 2019.
- The MG Hector is positioned as a mid-sized SUV.
Ahead of the market launch of the new MG Hector next month, MG Motor India has rolled out the 1 lakh unit of its Hector SUV from the Halol plant. First launched in 2019, the milestone comes at a time when the company is readying for an all-new MG Hector on January 5, 2023. The new MG Hector will also be manufactured from the same plant in Halol, Gujarat. The MG Hector is positioned as a mid-sized SUV, competing with the Jeep Compass, and Tata Harrier, along with a few premium offerings such as the Hyundai Tucson and the Volkswagen Tiguan in the country.
The upcoming MG Hector will feature new exterior styling as well as a comprehensive upgrade to the interior along with a features update. The new MG Hector will sport a new face with a new chrome-heavy hexagonal grille, diamond-shaped chrome inserts, LED DRLs, and a redesigned front bumper with a less prominent skid plate element. In profile, the new MG Hector will feature a new design for the alloy wheels while the rear changes will be restricted to a revised tail lamp and bumper.
Inside, the changes are far more substantial, as the company has completely revamped the cabin. Here, you get a 14-inch infotainment system replacing the older 10.4-inch unit while the upper and lower dash are now separated by an insert section that also doubles up as the air-con vents for the front passengers. MG has also covered large portions of the SUV with soft-touch materials to complete the premium quotient of the car.
Engine options are yet to be confirmed, though we expect the new Hector to continue with the Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre diesel and the 1.5-litre petrol mills from the current model. The new-gen Hector will be offered alongside the existing SUV when it goes on sale in India in 2023.
