The 2023 MG Hector facelift has been revealed ahead of its official debut at the 2023 Auto Expo, which will take place later this month. To keep up with the segment’s growing competitors, the updated Hector receives several significant Exterior/ Interior enhancements. As a result, here are all the details you need to know-
2023 MG Hector Facelift- Exterior Profile
The Hector’s front fascia gets a new addition in the form of a new diamond pattern grille, which is much larger than before and extends lower down into the bumper. The lower bumper is also new, and it houses the new ADAS sensor module. The LED headlamps and DRLs, on the other hand, have not been affected. MG has added new connected blade LED taillamps to the rear, which look quite premium. Hector lettering and a new lower bumper are also added to the rear. The facelift, however, is limited to the front and rear fascias, with every other body panel remaining unchanged, including the 18-inch alloy wheels.
2023 MG Hector Facelift- Interiors/ Features
Several new features are included in the 2023 MG Hector facelift. The 14-inch HD portrait touchscreen infotainment system is the largest in the segment and is the most noticeable inclusion. Other significant interior changes include a start/stop button, a digital instrument cluster, AC vents, a ventilated seat button near the gear lever, and a 360-degree camera system.
2023 MG Hector Facelift- Safety Features
The most notable feature of the 2023 MG Hector facelift is the Level 2 ADAS. However, it is only available on top-tier variants. The ADAS features are nearly identical to those of the Astor SUV. Other standard safety features include dual front airbags, anti-lock braking, electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), and others.
2023 MG Hector Facelift- Engine/ Powertrain Options
The same 1.5-litre petrol engine powers the Hector, which is available with either a five-speed manual or a CVT automatic transmission. This engine does not include the mild-hybrid technology that was previously available. In addition, the 7-speed DCT gearbox has been phased out. The diesel engine is also the same 170hp, 2.0-litre unit found in the Harrier, Safari, and Compass. On the Hector diesel, MG continues to offer only a single six-speed manual transmission.
2023 MG Hector Facelift- Pricing/ Rivals
The new MG Hector price will be announced at the Auto Expo 2023 on either January 11 or January 12. While bookings are already underway, deliveries are expected to begin at the same time. In terms of competitors, the Mg Hector Facelift will compete against vehicles such as the XUV 700, Innova Hycross, Jeep Compass, Tata Harrier, and others.
