The MG Hector is based on the same underpinnings as that of the Baojun 530. Not only this, but going by recent spy shots of its test mules, it seems that it will borrow majority of its styling cues from the said SUV as well. We are expecting the Hector to come across as a premium alternative to its competition. Hence, we are likely to see it come with a feature loaded cabin that also offers a host of creature comforts as well.
