  • Apr 03, 2019

After a series of teasers and spy shots, Morris Garages has finally released official images of its upcoming SUV, the Hector, which is also its first offering in India. This comes ahead of the SUV launch which is slated to happen in May 2019. The pictures reveal a lot about its exteriors and features. Interiors pictures have not been released yet by MG.

On the outside, the MG Hector gets a large honeycomb grille, an octagonal ‘MG’ badge, dual-function LED DRLs and quad-projector headlamps at the front. The LED DRLs serve as turn indicators positioned on the top of the headlamps, which get a place in the front bumper. There are chrome insert surrounds around the grille, DRLs and fog lamps. Additionally, it gets silver skid plate at the front and black cladding that runs along the sides to the rear section of the SUV. The front parking sensors have been integrated in the front corners of the black cladding.

At the back, the Hector gets sleek-looking LED tail lamps that are conencted by a red bar integrated into the boot lid, black-coloured plastic cladding on the bumper, rear fog lamps, reversing lamps, roof rails and roof spoiler. To garnish the rear end, the automaker has blesed it with silver cladding with rough contours and a single-exit exhaust system.

More notable features of exteriors are multi-spoke alloy wheels, blackened B,C, and D pillars, floating roofline, and shark-fin antenna. The shoulder line of the Hector is quite pronounced running from the front fenders to the tail lamps.

Although we do not have official pictures of the cabin, the automaker shared a few details about it. The cabin of the Hector will feature the segment-largest vertical 10.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, with eSIM by Airtel for internet connectivity and digital assistant for voice commands. You can activate it by calling the phrase “Hello, MG”.

Mechanically, the MG Hector will come with a 2.0-litre diesel and a 1.5-litre petrol-hybrid engine. While the diesel unit churns out 173PS of power and 350Nm of torque, mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, the petrol engine, on the other hand, produces a combined output of 140PS and 250Nm, mated to a DCT gearbox in combination with a 48V mild-hybrid system. The Hector is the first mass-market and segment’s first model in India to get such technology.

To be launched in May this year, the MG Hector is likely to be priced around Rs 15 lakh. Once launched, it will compete against the likes of the Jeep Compass, the Hyundai Tucson facelift and the Tata Harrier.
