The MG Hector has ben digitally modified to become a capable off-roader to take on the worst of the terrains.
MG Hector was the first product from the Chinese-owned British brand in India. The Hector has a respectable following among the Indian masses and has received more than 20,000 bookings even during the time the entire country was under a strict lockdown period. It showcases that Hector has captured a good share in C-SUV space. To help the Hector do so are its large proportions, a long list of features, and the well-equipped cabin. However, the Hector is not the brawniest offering in its segment. It looks fine, even a tad sophisticated, but, Yogi Sejwal, a digital artist, had some ideas to make the car look a lot bolder. The rendering seen here showcases his ideas of an off-road-centric version of the MG Hector.
The artist has customized the Hector to look wild and brash. Up front, the car's massive chrome grille has been blacked-out, while the MG logo now wears an orange tint. The grille also gets two D-shaped silver elements. The bumper is revised to feature a new skid plate, winch, and two tow hooks. The overall change to the bumper also helps in increasing the approach angle. A luggage carrier has also been mounted over the roof. It accommodates a spare tyre and a couple of sand tracks. Right above the windscreen, a custom LED light bar is mounted to illuminate the track when traversing after the sun has gone down.
The side profile reveals that the car has been lifted by a few inches. It now sits on a set of steel rims with the provision of bead locks. The downsized rims are shod with MT-spec rubber, giving the Hector a barbarian stance. A footboard can also be seen on the side and it might double up as rock slider too.
However, the loudest bit on this Hector is the paint scheme. It features a dual-tone paint job. The lower half of the car is painted in orange chrome, while the top half is done in matt black. Yes, we do know it is just a digital render and these modifications are purely cosmetical. But, such a treatment on the Hector in the real world would make it grab a lot of eyeballs for itself. Also, it will boast of an increased street presence, which isn’t a weak credential of the stock Hector by any means.
