The MG Hector SUV is all set to make its debut in India later this year. It is expected to fall in-between the price range of INR 12 lakh to INR 18 lakh. With this, it is going to fall right in the middle of the premium SUV segment in India. And hence, its main competitors will include the Tata Harrier and the Mahindra XUV500.
The MG Hector will mark the arrival of MG Motors in India. This SUV is based on the Baojun 530 which is currently on sale in the Chinese market. Going by the numerous spy shots circulating on the internet, we can clearly see that the Hector resembles quite an extent to its Chinese counterpart.
The MG Hector is going to launch in India with petrol as well as diesel engine options. The petrol derivative is going to be a 1.4-litre Multi-Air unit sourced from Fiat. The diesel engine is going to be a 1.4-litre unit, also source from Fiat. The former is expected to churn out 162 BHP along with 250 Nm of peak torque. While the later is expected to produce 170 BHP along with 350 NM of peak torque.
As standard, the MG Hector is going to get a 6-speed manual transmission. However, we expect it to come with an automatic transmission option as well on select variants.
This SUV is goign to score high when it comes to its feature list. Features such as LED projector headlamps, LED daytime running lights, a panoramic sunroof, a vertical infotainment system, dual-zone automatic climate control are likely to make an appearance.
The MG Hector will also score high when it comes to offering a decent level of safety features as well. Hence, in addition to multiple airbags, ABS with EBD and rear parking sensors along with high-speed alert systems, this SUV is also going to come with electronic stability control, hill descent and assist, traction control among other such equipment.
