This MG Hector employs 18-inch aggressive-looking aftermarket alloy wheels that makes it look a tad bit more macho and desirable than the stock version
MG Hector is one of the most feature-loaded SUVs in its segment. It was the first product from the carmaker for the Indian market. It locks horns with the likes of Tata Harrier and Jeep Compass. The alloy wheels offered with the regular model of the SUV are not that appealing. So, here are a few images of a modified MG Hector, which employs new aftermarket alloy wheels.
The MG Hector you see here features 18-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels.
These 18-inch rims are in silver colour and are gelling up well with the blacked-out colour shade of the SUV. These alloy wheels are of RPM brand and this customization job has been done by Velocity Tyres, Ludhiana. The alloy wheels have made the SUV look more stunning and has enhanced the road presence of the car. The cost of this modification is not known, but it doesn’t seem to be that expensive. At the moment, MG Hector is the top-selling car in the automakers stable.
A few months back, the automaker introduced the new MG Hector Plus, which is also known as 6-seater Hector. In its segment, it rivals with the like of Mahindra XUV500. Recently, the carmaker has discontinued the Style trim of the SUV, which means that now the starting price of the MG Hector Plus is 15.69 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Mechanically, it derives power from 1.5-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel engine. The former puts out power and torque outputs of 141bhp and 250 Nm, while the latter produces 168bhp of power and 350 Nm of twisting force. The petrol engine comes paired with a 6-speed MT or a 6-speed AT, while the diesel mill only comes mated to a 6-speed MT. MG Hector Plus is also offered with ‘Smart Swipe’ feature. This is a segment-first feature and it allows you to open and close the tailgate by a simple swipe of your foot. Inside, it comes loaded with features like a touchscreen infotainment unit with latest connectivity features, electric sunroof, steering mounted controls, automatic AC, cruise control, premium leather seats and much more.
