Is MG Hector taking Lead in the SUV Market? It's Price, Specifications and Features are here.

The MG Hector has certainly shown its strength in the brief time it has been on the market. With the most recent upgrades and ADAS improvements, this MG is still a fantastic package. Space, comfort, ride quality, premium appeal, and features are all still present in the Hector, making it a good option for families looking for an SUV.
It now has diamond-shaped chrome accents and a black surround for the grille in place of chrome, giving it a much bolder appearance. Lower-spec versions of the Hector have 17-inch wheels, while higher-spec trims continue to use the same 18-inch dual-tone alloy wheels. The split auto-LED headlight configuration that MG used prior to the facelift is still in place. In addition to receiving a revised air dam, the front bumper has been redesigned to make room for the larger grille and retain its skid plate. 

The dual-tone interior theme of the SUV has been carried through, giving it a similarly spacious and airy feel. You'll notice that the black-finished, redesigned dashboard has piano-black accents and silver and chrome accents on the AC vent units, giving it a luxurious, rich feel. A major disappointment is that MG has opted to use hard plastic for the lower half of the dashboard, door pads, and above the glovebox, while using soft-touch material for the upper portions.

Engine and Gearbox 
A 1.5-liter turbo-petrol (143 PS/250 Nm) or a 2-liter diesel (170 PS/350 Nm) engine is the option offered for the Hector. Both have a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard, but the petrol engine has the option of a CVT gearbox.

Power is delivered linearly and is available at the touch of a pedal not only on flat stretches of tarmac but also during climbs and twisties. The Hector never allows the rubber-band effect that is typically associated with models with CVTs to grow unsettling. The SUV will more than suffice to power your daily commutes and is better suited for calm driving.

Its features include an 8-colour ambient lighting system, a 7-inch digital driver's display, and a 14-inch infotainment system oriented vertically with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The SUV also has a powered driver's seat, a panoramic sunroof, and ventilated front seats.

MG has added up to six airbags, electronic stability control (ESC), ABS with EBD, and advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), including lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and auto emergency braking, to ensure safety.

There are five main variants of the Hector available from MG: Style, Smart, Smart Pro, Sharp Pro, and the new top-of-the-line Savvy Pro. Six monotone and dual-tone colours are offered for the MG SUV: Glaze Red, Aurora Silver, Starry Black, Dune Brown, Havana Grey, Candy White, and Dual-tone White & Black.
