MG Motor India will be launching a facelift model of the Hector SUV in the market sometime during this month. Ahead of its launch, the facelifted SUV has been spotted revealing its interior changes made by the company.
Images from carandbike, reveals the updated interiors of the Hector facelift model. The SUV now comes equipped with a wireless smartphone charger along with a USB port next to the charging pad.
The interior now gets a dual-tone finish as opposed to the all-black theme of the outgoing model of the SUV. The new beige and black themed interiors add to the fresh cabin look of the SUV. Speaking about the fresh cabin design, the Hector facelift also receives ventilated seats for the driver and the co-passenger.
From the images, we can see a button placed on the side of the centre console to operate the ventilated seat function. For added convenience, there is a USB A-type charging slot for the smartphone as well. Although it is not seen from the images, the Hector facelift is also expected to receive an auto-dimming IRVM.
Apart from the above-mentioned changes, the overall cabin layout will remain the same. Features such as the 10.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, semi-digital instrument cluster, automatic climate control, sunroof, and more will be carried forward from the pre-facelift model of the SUV.
However, the touchscreen infotainment system could receive the latest iteration of the brand's i-Smart AI-assisted connected technology. With the i-Smart features, Hector SUV owners can speak to the onboard voice assistant to control the SUV using over 100 commands.
The exterior of the Hector facelift model will undergo slight design revision over the outgoing model of the SUV. This includes an updated grille design that features a horizontal pattern and larger 18-inch wheels with a dual-tone finish.
The rest of the exterior features will be carrier-forward from the pre-facelift model. This includes the split-headlamp design, a lower air-dam in the front bumpers, split-LED taillamps and more. The safety net on the outgoing model will be carried as is on the facelift model.
However, there are speculations that MG could offer a new variant of the SUV that will be equipped with a four-wheel-drive and the (ADAS) Advanced Driver Assistance Systems technology, which could be borrowed from the Gloster SUV.
The engine and transmission options on the MG Hector facelift will remain the same as the outgoing model. It will continue to be offered with two engine options: a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine producing 143bhp and 250Nm of torque and a 2.0-litre diesel engine churns out 173bhp and 350Nm of torque.
The petrol engine is also offered with a 48V mild-hybrid variant, which offers better fuel efficiency and low-end grunt. All engine options come mated to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, while the non-hybrid petrol engine is offered with an optional DCT transmission unit.
