This time around, the company has revealed the front fascia details of the updated SUV which can be seen sporting a new grille. The company is touting the design of the new grille as an “Argyle-inspired diamond mesh grille”, which is slightly different from what is currently being offered.
Recently, the company has also confirmed that the new Hector facelift will have an updated infotainment system. Showcasing the new screen in previous teasers, the company revealed that the Hector is set to get an even larger 14-inch portrait-oriented touchscreen infotainment system.
It is believed that it will either replace the existing 10.4-inch unit or will be offered in select variants along with the current unit. Apart from the updated infotainment screen, the car is also likely to get several other upgrades, including a new dashboard, horizontal air-con vents, squared push-start, a yacht-style gear lever, among other updates.
Also with a cleaner dashboard and fewer dials/buttons, the MG will add to the premium feel of the car. With this approach, the company is aiming to increase the cabin space of the car to provide a richer and more comfortable experience.
The company has recently admitted that MG will launch a new-gen Hector in the market just before the start of the festive season. MG will reveal the revised model of the Hector SUV during this Diwali season. The most significant change in the new-gen MG Hector is believed to be the Level-2 ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System).
Talking about the features available under ADAS, this upcoming model can get features like Lane Departure Warning, Front Collision Warning, Blind Spot Authentication and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. Apart from this, a better user interface and an advanced digital instrument cluster can be given in it.
Along with this, it will also include a new touchscreen infotainment system. Apart from this, it can get 360-degree camera, panoramic sunroof, co-driver seater with four-way electrically adjustable points and 6-way adjustable driver seat, keyless entry and eight-speaker audio system.
These engine options will be mated to a standard 6-speed manual transmission mated to a 2.0-litre Dijon engine that churns out 170 Bhp of power. There will be a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine with 6-speed manual and CVT gearbox options, which provides power of 143 bhp.
