  • Well-Loaded And Value For Money Smart Variant

    The Smart EX and Smart Pro variants of the Hector petrol and diesel, respectively, offer a good set of features. The Smart EX variant offers features like cruise control, 10.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, 18-inch alloy wheels and panoramic sunroof whereas the Smart Pro variant adds features like electronic stability program (ESP), front parking sensors and wireless phone charger.

  • Long List Of Features In Top Variants

    The Hector facelift offers a lot of features in its top variants. These features include a 14-inch touchscreen system, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Level 2 ADAS with traffic jam assist, 18-inch alloy wheels, front ventilated seats and a powered tailgate.

  • Respectable Fuel Efficiency With The Diesel Engine

    The MG Hector facelift offers a respectable fuel efficiency of 16.17kmpl with its 2.0L turbo diesel engine. The 2.0L turbo diesel engine produces 170PS of power and 350Nm of torque and it comes with a 6-speed manual transmission.

  • Tall And Narrow Body Lacks SUV Presence

    The Hector is tall but relatively narrow in comparison to its height. Hence, it lacks the butch appeal of a traditional SUV, which the Mahindra XUV700 and Tata Harrier offer. Thanks to its added length, it looks more like an MPV with an SUV design rather than an outright SUV.

  • ADAS Only With Petrol Auto

    Since only the petrol engine of the Hector offers the automatic transmission, the diesel and petrol-manual variants of the Hector lack the Level-2 ADAS features.

  • No Diesel Automatic Option

    The MG Hector is the only SUV in its segment that doesn’t offer a diesel automatic powertrain option. Its 2.0L turbo diesel engine only comes with a 6-speed manual transmission and those looking for a diesel-automatic Hector have no choice but to buy the Hector petrol-auto. Furthermore, the diesel manual powertrain commands a premium of Rs. 2 lakh over the equivalent petrol manual variants, which is on the higher side.

  • Missing Features In Smart EX variant

    While the Smart EX variant of the Hector offers several feel-good features like a 10.4-inch touchscreen system, panoramic sunroof, 18-inch alloy wheels and subwoofer, it lacks a few useful features like tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) and automatic climate control.
