MG Hector 2019-2021 Overview

MG Motor India is all set to launch the facelifted Hector SUV on January 7. It gets a new facia, with a new Hector Plus-like front grille and bumper along with bigger 18-inch wheels. The interior gets a black-creme colour scheme that not only looks more premium, but also makes the cabin feel airier.

The facelifted Hector should retain the existing 170PS 2.0-litre diesel and 143PS 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engines. A 6-speed manual gearbox is offered as standard while the turbo-petrol engine can be specced with a CVT. The turbo-petrol manual powertrain can be specced with a 48v mild-hybrid system as well.

The facelifted MG Hector could command a slight premium over the current model priced from Rs 12.83 lakh to Rs 18.08 lakh (ex-showroom). The facelifted Hector will rival the Kia Seltos, Hyundai Creta, Tata Harrier, and Mahindra XUV500.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Hector 2019-2021

Q. Is the tyre proportion good for MG Hector body?
  • The Hector’s dynamics are tuned towards a sensible and calm driving style. It absorbs poor roads very well and tackles the SUV aspect very well. However, despite the monocoque construction, it feels more like a tall body-on-frame SUV. It tends to roll a bit into corners and the narrow 215-section tyres start to protest quite early. Moreover, Hector is likely to introduce bigger tyres & wheels with the facelift. For a better understanding of compatibility and riding comfort, we would suggest you to take a test ride. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read More: - 2021 MG Hector Facelift: Five Things To Expect
Q. Which SUV is best to buy in petrol, MG Hector Super or Seltos HTX IVT or Sonet GTX plus IVT?
  • Aside from the flashy exterior and the gimmicky promise of “Internet Inside,” the Hector is a sensible, middle-ground approach to a family SUV. It needs to step things up a notch or two to really bring in a sense of quality to rival the competition from Kia or Hyundai. If you want a comfortable car with great cabin space and better power performance, you may go for MG Hector. On the other hand the Seltos impressed us So much that all we could complain about was a lack of under-thigh support and the rather stiff ride quality. if you want a comfortable car for your family with great interior quality, ride quality and good feature list at a price, with better fuel efficiency, you may go for Kia Seltos. If we tak about Sonet, there is no IVT option available. The Sonet is ticking all the right boxes otherwise. It’s delivering on the wow factor with pukka mini-SUV looks, quality interiors and a feature list that’d make you question paying a premium for larger SUVs. It’s being sensible and practical too, with loads of cubby holes and a large boot. You get proper automatics, and the engines on offer cover a wide range of usage. It offers a better feature list at a budget as compared to other two. You may compare all these cars accordingly. Do take a test drive in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
Q. Which one is better from Sonet or Hector?
  • Selecting between the Kia Sonet and MG Hector would depend on certain factors such as your budget, preference of the segment, preference of powertrain, features required, service costs, ride quality, etc. If you are looking for a sub 4-metre SUV with attractive styling, butch looks, a host of features and multiple powertrain options to choose from then you may go with the Kia Seltos. The Sonet looks sure to raise the bar a fair few notches for the segment. Whereas, if you are looking for an SUV from a segment above that offers a spacious cabin area, easy to drive engine options and great features then the MG Hector would be a better choice. Aside from the flashy exterior and the gimmicky promise of “Internet Inside,” the Hector is a sensible, middle-ground approach to a family SUV. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read More: - Kia Sonet vs MG Hector - Kia Sonet Driven: More Than Just A Great Brochure? - 2019 MG Hector: First Drive Review - Hitting It Off?

Q. Is there any comparison of Kia Seltos with MG Hector?
  • I) seltos is a midsized Suv, Hector is over sized suv with a substantially higher price & weak engine. Moreover the British legacy of the Hector is obsolete, it is currently owned by the Chinese.If you are a business man with lots of merchandise to carry to your shop or a joint family, go for Hector, otherwise seltos is the best choice.
  • Yeah more competition is there but Kia seltos is best than MG hector because MG HECTOR uses BS4 Compliant engine and Kia seltos uses BS6 Compliant engine. After April 2020,all the vehicles will come BS6 Compliant. So Kia seltos is best.
  • Kia is owned by Hyundai and has poor built quality even though the new owner's of MG is Chinese still MG has better built quality and a powerful engine

    I booked MG Hector on 19th of July, 2019. I opted for the Smart DCT option (Aurora Silver) at MG’s Showroom Ahmedabad which is owned by Concept motors. I had driven MG before booking the car itself. But after booking it I still wanted a test drive. So 2 weeks after booking the car i went down for a test drive. I was with the same sales person who sold me the car. I was just cruising around on the service road when there was a thud noise in the Engine and then the car stopped. I looked on to the information cluster ahead and it showed orange coloured exclamation mark to which the sales person told that there is some issue with the transmission of the car. He called some guy from the technical dept where he told me that transmission had failed and it was the second time something like this happened. The car had only 4200km on the test runs. I cancelled the booking the next day to which their manager told me to wait and let’s see if there was any issue or not. But as I was adamant they proceeded with the refund. Though they told me that the refund will be processed within 15 days, it took them 28 days just to process it and give me the cheque that too after alot of follow ups. The car is good on cosmetics but I don’t think so that you can trust the engine in long run. MG still needs to take care and refine the engine according to indian road conditions. Giving variety of features won’t help if there is an issue in the Engine Quality.

    Mg Hector plus is a supercar with all the features and Looks, look wise its stunning and sensible and with all the features in this price - no car even Toyota Fortuner is not so close to this - after driving fortune 4x4 and after sitting and driving Hector plus you feel amazed, as it's open and fresh and in Fortuner, it was bit claustrophobic bcoz of all close things. Mg did a fantastic touch, its a UK old and trusted brand and manufacturing unit is in Gujrat - do not go with cheap comments on Chinese parts and others as its bot makes sense. In August their growth and selling are 41% up, so you can see the trend, please do see and check the car and drive you will be amazed its an Audi Q7 in 20-23lakhs with all the features. Also, the company is providing 5years warranty which is super solid no other company is giving this kind of support and services and there is no need to worry!! All other cars are not like MG Hector, you can see the trend in the coming months!!

    Wonderful vehicle . Safety , quality of materials used , comfort and creature comfort is top notch . Space was a necessity as all my family members are tall. Compared to its competition , it felt more roomier and comfortable . The petrol engine is powerful but the DCT is a bit slow to respond . mileage is decent , it returned 8kmpl in city and 12kmpl on highway. The maintenance cost is good , many service packages to choose from . I have the Smart Variant. Overall Value for money vehicle.
