    MG Hector Shine launched

    With this update, MG has also brought back the Shine trim to the Hector line-up that was available with the pre-facelift model, but was not offered with the facelift at launch.

    Bridging the gap between the Style and Smart trims, the Shine trim gets several additional features over the base model such as a reverse parking camera, an electronic parking brake (CVT only), LED headlamps and tail lamps, fog lamps, 17-inch alloy wheels, 10.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, cruise control and a single pane sunroof.

    However, features such as the connected LED tail-lights, larger 18-inch wheels, voice commands, remote and connected car tech only come in from the Smart trim.

    MG Hector powertrain options

    There have been no mechanical updates to the Hector line-up. That means it continues with the same 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine that is available with either a 6-speed manual or a CVT automatic gearbox. This unit produces 143hp and 250Nm of peak torque. The diesel engine also remains the same 170hp, 350Nm, 2.0-litre unit, and is offered only with a manual gearbox.

    MG Hector Plus prices hiked

    MG has also hiked prices of the 6- and 7-seater Hector Plus SUV. The price hike ranges between Rs 36,000-Rs 76,000, although there’s no introduction of the Shine trim on the Hector Plus. There’s also no change to the powertrain line-up, and it continues to be shared with the 5-seater Hector. Here’s a detailed look at how the prices for the Hector Plus have gone up.

    Poll of the month

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
