The BS6 MG Hector Is Finally Here!


However, only the petrol variants of the Hector get the update for now

  • Prices across variants are up by Rs 25,000.
  • Power and torque continue unchanged at 143PS and 250Nm.
  • The petrol-hybrid version has been updated as well.
  • We expect the diesel engine to be updated ahead of the April 1 deadline.

Morris Garages has launched the BS6 MG Hector in India at Rs 12.74 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The BS6 updates are currently limited to petrol variants of the Hector. But the diesel engine is likely to be updated in time for the BS6 deadline, which is March 31. The Hector is a big mid-sizer which rivals the Kia Seltos and Tata Harrier. Here are the new prices:

Automatic variants of the petrol powered Hector get a dual-clutch transmission (DCT), while the standard transmission is a 6-speed manual. Power and torque output for the 1.5-litre turbocharged engine continues unchanged at 143PS and 250Nm. 

The Hector is also available in a mild-hybrid form which adds a belt-driven starter-generator. It is capable of brake energy recuperation and provides a mild electric boost, or torque assist, when accelerating. Auto stop and start on idle is another feature of the Hector hybrid. 

Since its rivals such as the Kia Seltos have BS6 diesel engines, the Hector is likely to get its 2.0-litre turbo-diesel updated. Expect the diesel’s price hike to be steeper than the petrol. Meanwhile, MG Motor is also working on a 6-7 seater version of the Hector, which will be showcased at Auto Expo 2020.
