Two years since being launched, it is clear that the MG Hector transcends the narrow definition of a car; it is much more than that—a travel companion, a lifestyle choice. With more than 50,000 units on the roads of India and an ever-growing fan base, the Hector gives everyone a reason to fall in love with it. Here are just some of them:
1. Connected, wherever you go:
When the Hector launched in India in 2019, it pioneered the concept of the internet car in the Indian market. Featuring always-on connectivity via its i-SMART system, the Hector keeps in touch with its drivers and/or owners in real-time, creating levels of engagement higher than ever before. As the Internet Car, the Hector launched features that were utterly state-of-the-art. The i-SMART app offers information about the car’s systems and its performance, and it can receive over-the-air updates without delay or intervention. It also enables voice commands to control various systems, can automatically make emergency calls in an accident, remotely control features such as ignition, climate control, tailgate, geofence it within a predefined perimeter, get weather updates and much more. With 24×7 connectivity, the Hector offers better safety and overall driving experiences.
2. App Ecosystem:
As a connected car, the Hector allows you access to an ecosystem of apps that help you get the most out of your car. For instance, every Hector is equipped with a Gaana Premium account so that you can enjoy an endless collection of music by way of seamless, uninterrupted connectivity.
The i-SMART system also features integration with Accuweather for the latest weather information and forecasts. And this means always being prepared for the weather no matter where you are heading.
Additionally, it offers online and offline navigation services with voice directions and is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. With this, you never have to take your eyes off the road or hands of the wheel to perform minor tasks.
3. Safe and Sound:
The Hector has always prioritised driver and passenger safety and comes with a host of safety features. To begin with, every Hector is manufactured using high strength steel for its body, thick door panels and roll-formed tubular steel beams. These are the elements behind that muscular look you love so much.
As tough as it is on the outside, the MG Hector is equally smart on the inside.
Features like the auto-dimming rearview mirror, 360-degree camera view, front parking sensors, six airbags, Electronic Stability and Traction Control programs, and Brake Assist make every drive safer and more convenient. With all this and more, you can completely trust your Hector to keep you safe wherever the road takes you.

Behind its sturdy frame and glossy exterior, the MG Hector marries power, efficiency, and convenience that make it the perfect premium SUV for anyone.
Offering a range of engine options—diesel, petrol and petrol-hybrid, along with a choice of transmissions— manual, DCT , and CVT, it offers exciting performance without compromising on efficiency or convenience.
The petrol variant is available in several transmission options, while the diesel offers heavy-duty power and low-end torque, the petrol-hybrid variant’s 48V mild hybrid system bumps up efficiency without hampering power delivery.
So, whether you are driving in the city or the mountains, you can expect a powerful yet smooth journey.
