MG Hector, the upcoming mid-size SUV from the British car manufacturer is going to launch in India on the 27th of June this year, according to the sources of AutoWheels India.
So Here are some Pros & Cons of the Hector.
Have a look before buying this SUV.
- Diesel Engine is Fun-to-drive. Good ride comfort over bad roads at low speed.
- Safety Features across the all range. Dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX, traction control, hill hold, BA, TCS & All Disc Brakes offered as standard. Top-spec gets 6 airbags, front parking sensors, 360-degree camera and more…
- Attractive car styling. Front Looks feels like an expensive car with strong road presence.
- Huge cabin space as Designer puts its wheelbase to good use, offering leg space even for occupants over 6ft tall.
- Technologies from first in segment. Big touchscreen, voice commands, internet linked features make this an affordable Hi-Tech SUV.
- Well-loaded with features even in the base variant. Top-spec offers panoramic sunroof, front powered seats, all LED lighting, powered tailgate etc
- Dikki boot space is also very good and you can plan a long road trip easily in the Hector.
- Petrol Engine is not Fun-to-drive as it feels underpowered initially. Ride comfort is not good over bad roads at High speed (Not a Good Off-Roader) due to soft suspension set-up.
- Side Design, may not be to everyone’s taste as it looks like MPV from side rather than a SUV.
- Currently an unknown brand in India, Needs to provide very good after sale service.
- Touchscreen, iSmart app, 360-degree camera could be more smooth as Touchscreen faces issues with response time.
- Interior quality is good but not upto the mark if comparing with Jeep Compass. Upholstery quality and cabin materials feel decent but not rich.
- Seats could offer better under-thigh support, for people under 6ft tall.
- No Diesel Auto option at the time of Launch.
- No Hybrid Petrol Auto option at the time of Launch.
- Ground Clearance is not good as its only 192 mm wrt longest wheelbase in segment so it seems to be hit on bad roads when fully loaded.
