The MG Hector is the most feature loaded car in the segment. It comes with a panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting and even a 360 degree parking camera.
The MG Hector has been unveiled in Mumbai today and it accounts to some first-in-class specs and variant wise features in the market. The Hector comes in four trims – Style, Super, Smart and Sharp – with ‘Style’ being the base variant and ‘Sharp’ being the top-spec fully loaded variant.
MG Hector comes with a 1.5L, petrol engine which will produce 143 PS of power and 250 Nm of torque. The engine will be mated to a 6-speed manual or a DCT automatic. ARAI certified mileage for the petrol manual variant of the Hector is 14.1 kmpl while the automatic variant has a mileage of 13.9 kmpl. The petrol engine also comes with a mild hybrid variant.
Another engine on option is the FCA sourced 2.0L, diesel engine which is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox but there will be no automatic for the diesel. This engine produces 170 PS of power and 350 Nm of torque and has a ARAI certified mileage of 17.4 kmpl.
