MG Hector Pros and Cons

  • Hector Advantages

    Road presence. A large SUV that will get attention on the roads. Spacious and comfortable cabin. Ample space for six-footers. Loaded with features such as powered seats, front seat ventilation, 14” Touchscreen and ADAS — feels like money well spent.

  • Hector Disadvantages

    No diesel-automatic option. Will put off buyers with high running. Petrol engine is not particularly fuel efficient. Not recommended for heavy city use.

  • Expert's Conclusion

    The MG Hector has stuck to the basics of space, comfort and quality. If you prioritize these aspects, consider buying this SUV. However, if you want a more engaging driving experience, you can consider other options.

MG Hector Expert Review

MG Hector

MG Motor's first car in India, the Hector, received a significant update in early 2023. There are changes in how it looks, new ‘Pro’ variants, and new features as well. As expected, the prices have gone up as well.

For a similar price as the MG Hector 2023, you can consider options such as the Tata Harrier, Tata Safari and the Mahindra XUV700 which are in the segment of 4.6-4.7 metre-long SUVs. The base and mid variants of the Hector are similar to higher variants of smaller SUVs such as the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, Toyota Hyryder, Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushaq, Volkswagen Taigun and the MG Astor.


MG Hector

The Hector has always looked bold, mainly due to lots of shiny chrome on the front. Design changes are not huge, but they are definitely noticeable. The grille is now larger and has diamond-shaped chrome designs. There's more black around the grille, making it appear a little sportier. But if you don't like a lot of chrome on your car, you might think it's too much.

MG has kept the same split auto-LED headlights as before, and they're still in the bumper, along with LED fog lamps. The LED daytime running lights (DRLs) are still above the headlights. The front bumper, has been redesigned to fit the bigger grille. You will also notice the radar for the advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) in the skid plate. 

MG Hector

There are no changes to the side look. The higher variants of the Hector still have the same 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels, while the lower variants have 17-inch wheels. Considering the size of the Hector, 19-inch wheels would have looked even better. The updated Hector also keeps the body side cladding with chrome additions and the 'Morris Garages' logo, just like before.

MG Hector

The new Hector 2023 has LED taillights that are now connected, with lighting elements in the center. The 'Internet Inside' badge has been replaced with one that says 'ADAS’. You will also notice a larger ‘H E C T O R’ branding on the boot. A chrome strip now goes across the full width of the car's back, and the rear bumper has been updated a bit too.

Overall, the Hector continues to impress with its large size. It scores high on road presence and the updates help the Hector stand out a little more than before.


MG Hector Interior

The interior features a beige-black dual-tone colour scheme, which makes it feel open and spacious. MG has redesigned the dashboard, mostly to make space for the larger touchscreen. It has also added some silver and chrome touches around the AC vents giving it a luxurious feel. There are soft touch materials on the upper part of the dashboard, door panels, and above the glovebox. However, the lower half is made of hard plastic, which is disappointing. There are also new air vents in the center and the start/stop button is now square instead of round. Plus, there's a new gear shift lever.

MG Hector Interior

The center console has also been redesigned and now has a lot of silver trim around the gear lever, cup holders, and other controls. This centre console seamlessly joins the touchscreen with the armrest, like a luxury car. The armrest has a slide function, and you have some storage space underneath it as well.

MG has opted for light beige leatherette seat covers. The front seats provide good support and comfort. You can adjust the seat electrically, and there's enough space for even 6 foot tall people with plenty of headroom and legroom. Finding a comfortable position is easy and you will have a clear view through the windshield.

MG Hector Interior

Rear seat experience has always been a strong point for the Hector. In the 2023 model, not much has changed. Occupants get their own AC vents, cup holders, and a place to put their phone with a fast-charging USB port.

There's plenty of headroom and legroom, but when there are more than two people, shoulder space becomes limited. Luckily, there's no hump on the floor in the middle, so the person in the center has enough legroom. MG made the rear seats slide and recline for extra comfort, and all three rear passengers have adjustable headrests.

We think the rear seats are a little flat and could be better if it had more cushioning on the sides and for the underthigh. The Hector scores high in terms of sense of space, thanks to the light interior and the large windows. Do note that it can get quite hot inside the cabin in peak summer due to the large glass area. MG could’ve considered offering rear window sunshades to limit this problem.

Boot Space

MG Hector Boot Space

The Hector has a large 587-litre boot space that can comfortably hold all your luggage for a weekend drive. It also has a split rear seat that can be divided 60:40, so you can carry more bags if required. The inclusion of a powered boot is a helpful addition. 


MG Hector Features

Whatever you expect in a vehicle of this size and price, MG has provided all those features. This includes

Keyless Entry

Push-Button Start Stop

6-way Powered Driver’s Seat

4-way Powered Co-Driver’s Seat

Ambient Lighting

Air Purifier

Wireless Charger

Cruise Control

Leatherette Upholstery

Front Seat Ventilation

Auto Headlamps

Rain-sensing Wipers

Panoramic Sunroof

Connected Car Technology

You would expect the new 14” touchscreen to be the star of the show. While the display quality is great and there’s Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, the response time of the system is slow. The voice command system also does not function accurately all the time. The audio output from the ‘Infinity’ branded system is appreciable, however. 


The Hector comes with a range of safety features, including electronic stability program (ESP), traction control system, hill-hold assist, as many as six airbags, front and rear parking sensors, and a 360-degree camera.

With the facelift, the Hector's safety features have been improved to include ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System). Features include adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and forward collision warning. 

It's important to note that ADAS is there to assist the driver, not take full control, especially in busy traffic like ours. It works best on roads where lane markings are clear such as highways and expressways. The system is calibrated well, and functions smoothly enhancing the safety quotient of the SUV. 


MG Hector

MG Hector engine options include a 2.0-litre diesel and a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine. The diesel engine is offered with a 6-speed manual transmission only. With the petrol you get the choice of a 6-speed manual transmission and a CVT (automatic)

1.5-litre Petrol

The petrol engine does not feel underpowered for the size of the Hector. Whether you're driving in the city or on the highway, the Hector petrol feels easy to drive.

It does not feel engaging or exciting like the larger 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine on the Mahindra XUV700. However, for daily driving and relaxed highway trips, you will not have a complain. Between the manual and the automatic, we will recommend that you stretch your budget for the automatic. It makes the experience even more stress-free. If you enjoy driving in a calm manner, the Hector petrol will not disappoint. 

Do note that fuel efficiency is not particularly impressive with this engine. If usage is high, we would recommend you consider the diesel engine option instead. 

2.0-litre Diesel

This 2.0-litre engine is developed by Fiat/Jeep and is used in the Tata Harrier/Safari and the Jeep Compass/Meridian. Refinement is not a strong point here, and you will here noise inside the cabin and feel vibrations as well. 

There is some lag under 1500rpm, but after that the acceleration is impressive. This engine is best suited for those who do a lot of highway trips or if usage is over 50km per day. The only downside here is that this engine is not available with an automatic transmission. A diesel-automatic combination is offered by both — Tata and Mahindra.

Ride and Handling

MG Hector

One of the Hector's notable strengths has always been its comfortable ride quality. It continues to excel at smoothing out most bumps and uneven road surfaces, keeping passengers comfortable. The only time you might feel some side-to-side swaying and harsh bumps in the cabin is on rough roads at lower speeds. At highway speeds, the Hector remains stable and confident. 

We like that the steering is light, making it easier to drive inside the city and park. As speeds increase, there’s enough weight in the steering for the driver to feel comfortable carrying speed. 


MG Hector

The MG Hector has stuck to the basics of space, comfort and quality. If you priortise these aspects, consider buying this SUV. However, if you want a more engaging driving experience, you can consider other options.

  • Hector Plus is a family friendly SUV

    The MG Hector Plus is a family-friendly SUV that excels in both style and functionality. The spacious and well-crafted interior offers a comfortable ride, accommodating up to seven passengers. Its advanced infotainment system and connected car features add a tech-savvy touch, enhancing the overall driving experience. The exterior design is eye-catching, and the panoramic sunroof adds a luxurious feel. The multiple engine options provide flexibility for different driving preferences. However, potential buyers should note that the third-row seating might feel a bit uncomfortable for adults on longer journeys. Despite this, the MG Hector Plus stands out.

  • A Fusion of Modern Design and technology

    I was recently tested by my brother's car, the MG Hector, which stands tall in the SUV segment, blending striking design with advanced technology. Its spacious and well-crafted interior provides a comfortable haven for passengers. The extensive infotainment system, coupled with connected car features, adds a futuristic touch. The panoramic sunroof and exterior aesthetics contribute to its appeal. Engine options offer flexibility to suit diverse driving preferences. Yet, potential buyers should note that the third-row seating may feel snug for adults during extended journeys. Despite this, the MG Hector is a compelling choice, striking a balance between style, technology, and practicality.

  • MG Hector The Epitome of Luxury

    The MG Hector has come to be discerned as a key feature of fineness and technology, and I am pleased by both its satiny face and slice edge functionality. Its charming car and important engine make every ride affable and voguish, while its ample innards and upmarket amenities insure that every passenger has a sumptuous and smooth ride. Thanks to its veritably useful features and slice edge technology, which also give a hint of fineness and practicality, this SUV completely meets my reason for both luxury and technology. In tours of face and avail, the MG Hector has set new norms for what a true SUV can do, and it now actually stands for luxury and technology.

  • Good experience

    It was all about very good experience with hector, Build quality and road performance was also very good.Thanks to mg.

  • MG Hector Innovation Meets Elegance

    In the MG Hector, invention and fineness are connected. This SUV provides a comforting and connected driving experience thanks to its tasteful phraseology and commodious exterior. The Hector provides comfort and luxurious assistance thanks to its important engine options. Due to its cornucopia of screen measures, it's a secure liberty for external or traced passageways. However, the MG Hector is a stylish liberty if you are looking for an SUV that combines invention with philosophy. It's a sophisticated goddess with outstanding vacuity that keeps up its face. Thanks to its remarkable dynamism, effectiveness, and treasure-winning project, this auto is a top contender.

  • Safe cartaken
