MG has unveiled the dual-tone variant of Hector and bookings for the same are already underway for a token amount of Rs 50,000. MG will offer the dual-tone option only on the top-spec Sharp variant and it will be available only with the Candy White and Glaze Red colour options.
Other single tone colours available on the Hector include Burgundy Red, Aurora Silver, Starry Black. Now with the inclusion of two dual-tone options, the total number of colours available on the Hector has moved to 7 (five single-tone and two dual-tone). MG is not the only SUV to get dual-tone colour option in this price range since some of its rivals like the Tata Harrier, Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta are also already offered with a similar combination.
Dual-tone colour options on the Hector will be available with three powertrain options including a petrol automatic (1.5-litre turbo with 6-speed dual-clutch automatic), diesel manual (2.0-litre diesel with 6-speed manual transmission) and the petrol hybrid with manual transmission (1.5-litre turbo-hybrid with 6-speed manual transmission). The Hector also gets the standard 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine with a 6-speed manual gearbox but it is not available with dual-tone colour options since it is not offered in the top-spec Sharp variant.
MG has not yet announced the prices of the dual-tone Hector. Expect it to attract a premium of around Rs 30,000 over the corresponding single tone variant. Currently, it is priced from Rs 12.84 lakh to Rs 17.89 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It will continue to rival the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos and Tata Harrier.
