The MG Hector will be soon joined by the Hector Plus, which is, basically, a 6/7-seater variant that was showcased at the Auto Expo 2020
Recently, we came across a video on YouTube that has been uploaded by 'Beard Biker' in which the channel-owner can be seen buying a car from his YouTube earning. The YouTuber produces motorcycle-related videos and is associated with a lot of brands as well. With all the earnings he fetched out of this process, he paid the down payment for an MG Hector that he has bought for his parents.
The YouTuber has gifted the top-spec variant of the Hector to his parents.
The biker has purcased the top-end variant of the Hector, which comes loaded to the gills. It gets a full-size panoramic sunroof, which can be controlled by voice commands as well as buttons. The Hector offers the users voice-controlled access to more than 100 operations in the car. It also gets a 10-inch portrait-style touchscreen for the infotainment system with an embedded-SIM that gives the car access to the internet. The screen also offers a host of bundled applications like Gaana, Accuweather, TomTom IQ Maps, and more.
The MG Hector also offers an option of remote access to the car via a smartphone app. This way, the owner can pre-cool or pre-heat the cabin, open the windows/sunroof, and can get all the required information about the car such as battery health, fuel level, service schedule, and the likes. Also, the car can be geo-fenced to avoid unnecessary usage of the vehicle by one of its users. It can be remotely-disabled as well if it gets stolen.
Talking of the mechanicals, the MG Hector is offered with two engine options – a 1.5L turbocharged petrol and a 2.0L turbocharged diesel. The petrol engine with forced-fed charge produces a peak power output of 141 BHP and a peak torque of 250 Nm. It can be had with either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 7-speed DCT. MG is also offering a 48-volt mild-hybrid tech with the petrol engine to improve its overall drivability and fuel efficiency. The 2.0L diesel on the other hand belts out a peak power output of 168 BHP and max. torque of 350 Nm. It comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.
