Days after the MG Hector got a grand unveil in Mumbai, bookings for the SUV have commenced. MG Motor India dealers have started accepting bookings for the SUV with the booking amount set at Rs 51,000. There is no official communication from MG as yet, though a handful of upcoming dealers in Mumbai and Goa have confirmed the development to us.
Prospective buyers who have registered their interest on MG Motor India’s website are being contacted by regional dealers and have been invited to book the Hector. MG Motor’s first showroom in India is slated to come up in Delhi and will open its doors on June 4, 2019. As reported by us earlier, MG Motor India is readying 120 touch points (sales and service) through 50 dealers. The company plans to increase the number of touch points to 250 by September 2019.
The MG Hector will rival the likes of the Mahindra XUV500, Jeep Compass and the Tata Harrier. The MG SUV will come with a 143hp, 1.5-litre turbo-petrol; a 170hp, 2.0-litre diesel; and a 48V mild-hybrid version of the 1.5 turbo-petrol unit. The 4,655mm long Hector will launch in five-seat form and MG has officially confirmed to Autocar India that a seven-seat variant will join the line-up in 2020. The SUV will come with a long list of segment first features including a 10.4-inch portrait-oriented touchscreen infotainment system with a number of connectivity technologies, a panoramic sunroof, six airbags, and 17-inch alloy wheels, among others.
MG Hector prices are expected to range from Rs 15-20 lakh.
