We bring you a detailed break-up of all the features each variant of the upcoming MG Hector has to offer.
Well, the much-awaited details of the upcoming MG Hector's variant break-up are out. Also, we'll be driving the car next week so watch this space for our forthcoming detailed first drive review. While we still wait for the car's prices to be revealed during its launch sometime this month, let's take a quick glance at what each of the four variants of the MG Hector has to offer.
Style (base variant)
Apart from the basic necessary safety features like ABS, EBD, dual airbags, speed warning alert, ISOFIX child seat anchors & rear parking sensors, which are now mandatory across all variants, the Style variant will also offer features like Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Traction Control System (TCS), Hill-Hold Control, rear disc brakes, rear defogger and speed-sensing auto door lock.
Further, in terms of exterior features too, the Style variant does not disappoint as it gets halogen projector headlamps, semi-LED taillights, LED DRLs, roof rails and turn indicators on ORVMs. Convenience features like remote keyless entry, a cooled glove box & power adjustable ORVMs will also be on offer. However, there will be no hybrid version on offer with the Style variant and it will also miss out on all the i-Smart internet connectivity features. No automatic transmission option either.
Super (2nd from the base)
The Super variant of the MG Hector offers a bit more equipment than Style to make life easier, like steering-mounted audio controls, the famed 10.4-inch HD touchscreen AVN system with six-speakers, Android Auto connectivity, cruise control and offline maps for navigation (part of the i-Smart connectivity system). It also introduces full-LED lighting (except the front fog lamps) and silver-painted single-tone alloy wheels.
The list of safety features also grows longer as it gets a reverse parking camera, cornering front fog lamps and front parking sensors as well. While the Super variant also misses out on nearly every i-Smart feature and an automatic transmission option as well, it will be available with the hybrid powertrain setup.
Smart (one below the top-spec version)
This is where the MG Hector starts showing its full potential. While the hybrid powertrain option starts from one level below, the Smart variant introduces the 6-speed automatic DCT option in the mix. Safety kit sees a few additions and upgrades like four passenger airbags, electronic parking brake (DCT only) & a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). The front fog lamps go LED on this one, making the overall lighting on the Hector all-LED. Plus, it gets dual-tone machined alloy wheels and leather upholstery.
Coming to the i-Smart system, it gets a majority of the internet connectivity features (except remote sunroof open/close). Further, most of the silver-finish garnishes are all chrome and the sound system gains two more speakers, taking the total to eight, along with a subwoofer and amplifier. In addition to the power-adjust, the ORVMs will also be power-foldable and the driver's seat will be 6-way power adjustable too. Another crucial addition comes in the form of a Push Button Start/Stop system with Smart Entry.
However, the Smart variant misses out on some equipment like automatic climate control, dual-pane panoramic sunroof and a 7-inch coloured digital Multi-Information Display (MID).
Sharp (top variant)
Well, there's no explaining needed here. The Sharp variant is the one with all the bells and whistles loaded in it. Features which are exclusive to the Sharp variant include 360-degree surround view camera, heated ORVMs, 6 airbags, remote sunroof open/close, a 7-inch coloured digital Multi-Information Display (MID), 8-colour ambient lighting, dual-pane panoramic sunroof, a powered tailgate & co-driver seat, automatic climate control, auto headlamps and rain-sensing wipers.
The MG Hector will be offered in five exterior colour choices: Candy White, Starry Black, Aurora Silver, Burgundy Red & Glaze Red.
