- MG Hector Dual-Tone

MG Hector gets three dual-tone variants

Sadly, the two-colour treatment is only available in the range-topping Sharp trim.

To cater to a broader audience while adding a bit more zing to the mix, Morris Garages India has introduced the option of a dual-tone finish for the Hector. For MG, two-colour treatment means a blacked-out roof, ORVMs and A-pillars. For the body, you can have just two colours – Glaze Red or Candy White. Sadly, the dual-tone options are limited to the range-topping Sharp trim, meaning there are only three variants – Petrol Hybrid MT, Petrol-DCT and Diesel MT. Their prices are Rs 16.84 lakh (~USD 22,900), Rs 17.76 lakh (~USD 24,150) and Rs 18.09 lakh (~USD 24,600), respectively.

Compared to the monotone variants, the dual-tone ones cost Rs 20,000 (~USD 270) more. If that a bit much? Well, let’s put it this way – Tata Motors asks for an additional Rs 10,000 (~USD 135) for giving the Harrier a dual-shade finish. Also, the Harrier has four dual-tone variants. That said, the most expensive twin-colour Harrier (Diesel-MT) still costs Rs 91,000 (~USD 1,250) less than Harrier XZ+ Dual-Tone.

Are there any other changes? In a word, no. The MG Hector is available with a 1.5-litre petrol engine, which pumps out 141bhp/250Nm. It comes with or without a mild-hybrid system. In the former form, the powerplant comes coupled to a 6-speed manual transmission. In the Sharp trim level, the non-hybridised petrol mill is available only with a dual-clutch automatic gearbox. Diesel lovers have just one choice – a 2.0-litre mill (168bhp/350Nm) mated to a 6-speed MT.

In India, the feature-laden Hector competes directly with the Tata Harrier and lower version of the Jeep Compass. The three-row Hector – the Hector Plus – is a rival for the Mahindra XUV500 and the lower variants of the Toyota Innova Crysta. MG Motor India might introduce dual-tone colour options for the Hector Plus as well. Later in the year, the company will launch its flagship offering – the Glouster. Expect it to gain a price list around Diwali 2020.

  • Still a commie chinese heap of junk,

    With 10+ year old chassis,

    Great way of decieveing public,

    Public made a heck out of it in the name of sunroof,

    But in the case of MG when they sold and older vehicle with some stick on tablet and polisehd that turd with some chrome badging,

    Nobody asked the question as to how they sold an older vehicle in Indian market, but everyone went for the stick on tab and talkback feature,

    Which people can have on 30k aftermarket audio unit,

    Best part people spent 120k to 180k to this older heap of junk,

    Please these pseudo british bastads can piss off,

    Even their Maxus D90 truck cum Gloster junk SUV has stolen design from Nissan SUV'S, AND BACK TOTALLY RIPPED OFF FROM X7,

    well typical thieves and their junk vehicle,

    It would be Total shame to buy their vehicles after all they did to everyone and to us,

    Their companies should also be banned from our shores,

    Starting from this SAIC offshoot,

    Then their Aprilia 150 to 400cc bikes,

    Their their whole Vespa Fleet,

    Detroy these bastards through and through,
