MG Hector

MG Hector is the first internet car to launch in India.

The Hector is available in four trim levels: Style, Super, Smart and Sharp, and available in three different engine options: 1.5 L petrol turbo, 1.5 L petrol turbo with mild hybrid technology, and a 2.0 L turbo diesel sourced from FCA. Only the former engine received an automatic transmission option, specifically dual-clutch transmission. It received 10,000 bookings only 23 days after launch. MG Hector was launched on 27 June 2019, where it was the first model released by SAIC motor India.

MG HECTOR EXTERIOR DESIGN AND FEATURES

In terms of dimensions, the MG Hector will boast of proper SUV proportions and will have size as one of its USPs. The vehicle’s upright stance is underscored by its fascia which appears bold and muscular, what with its LED brow line capping the bumper mounted headlights and fog lamps. The large grille will be underlined in chrome and bumpers at both ends will be affixed with faux skid plates for enhancing the outdoorsy appeal.

Sideways, the floating roof effect will be amplified by blacked-out pillars and the window line will be lined in chrome. Wheel size will be large enough to fill the arches appropriately and there will be cladding all round on the underside along with roof rails on top.

At the rear, the windscreen has a slightly raked angle which swoops down towards the tail lights which do lend the Hector’s appearance some Audi-ish appeal. Overall, the Hector will boast of proper SUV-like appearance and that should work in its favour.

MG HECTOR INTERIOR AND CABIN FEATURES

The MG Hector will be launched as a 5-seater first and it is being said that a 7-seater version will follow later. Inside, for the proportions, expect space to be plenty and there will be top-spec kit to play with. Taking centre stage will be the iSMART Next Gen system, which will make the Hector the first internet car in India. Several industry-first features of Internet-enabled cars will be available in the MG Hector and all of it will be controlled either through voice or a vertically-laid out 10.4” screen. The unit will allow the driver to control the entire car system with just a touch or voice command. Activated with ‘Hello MG’, the voice assist allows over 100 commands, including opening and closing of windows and sunroof, ac control, navigation etc. and works even under poor connectivity.

In addition to that fancy feature, the MG Hector will also come loaded with things like a panoramic sunroof, electrically-operated tailgate, multiple airbags, a 360-degree camera, paddle shifters, powered driver’s seat, perhaps a parking assistant feature, premium upholstery and much more.

MG HECTOR SAFETY

Airbags save lives. And we can’t stress this enough. With 6 Airbags that includes dual front airbags, front seat side impact and side curtain airbags that work together with the seatbelts, we made sure that MG Hector is always armoured to save your life.

While in most cars, the driver seat is equipped with the best safety system available, MG Hector also focusses on the other passengers sitting in the car. That is why, our co-driver seat and the back seat also get the same safety system like our driver seat

Driving in the rains can get a little painful when the rain drops and mist get accumulated on your windscreen. A rear defogger helps to clear the mist on your rear windscreen, thereby ensuring visibility at all times

To ensure overall safety, MG Hector is equipped with speed sensing auto door lock. All the doors will be automatically locked when the car exceeds a minimum speed and will then unlock once the car reaches your destination

This feature coordinates the car’s position, via GPS, with a database of speed limit information to alert drivers if they’re speeding. This helps drivers maintain a recommended driving speed according to their location

Not just the driver, MG Hector makes sure that the co-driver is also wearing the seatbelt at all times. And a seatbelt reminder helps you remember that, always. It’s only human to want your loved ones to be safe

MG Hector uses rolled form door beams which improve strength and rigidity for doors as compared to flat stamped beams. They have larger cross-section area which makes the door stronger and safer to withstand impact.

MG HECTOR ENGINE & PERFORMANCE

The MG Hector will be offered with two engine options. The diesel motor will be the tried-n-tested 2.0-litre Multijet which also powers the Jeep Compass, the Tata Harrier and the upcoming Tata Cassini. For the Hector, it is expected to crank out near about 170 PS and 350 Nm of torque. It will be mated to both manual and automatic gearbox options.

Petrol-powered variants of the MG Hector will be powered by a 1.5-litre turbo petrol motor which is expected to crank out 140 PS+ and about 250 Nm of torque. This engine could be offered with a manual transmission or a dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
