MG has launched dual-tone variants of the Hector SUV, based on its top-spec Sharp trim and its price is just Rs 20,000 more than the standard Sharp variant, depending on the powertrain you opt for.

MG Motors has now officially launched the dual-tone color variants of the Hector SUV, with its price starting from Rs 16.84 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The dual-tone color options are available on both the petrol and diesel variants of the Hector but are solely based on the top-spec fully-loaded Sharp variant.
The dual-tone variants cost Rs 20,000 more than the standard Sharp variant for each of the powertrain options. The new dual-tone color option fetches the MG Hector a contrasting black finished roof, A pillars and wing mirrors. It is however only available with the Candy White and Glaze Red paint shades of the MG Hector.
