    MG Motor is all set to make its India debut in the middle of 2019, with the launch of the Hector SUV. As is known, the MG Hector will be a fairly premium offering. However, latest spy shots suggest the Hector might not be the only SUV for India from MG. A first set of photographs showing a left-hand-drive Baojun 510 on test suggest that MG is studying a model smaller than the Hector to take the Hyundai Creta head-on. In case you didn’t know, Baojun and MG are brands under the SAIC umbrella. In fact, the MG Hector is also branded as the Baojun 530 in markets abroad.   

    The Baojun 510 was first showcased in 2016 and has since received a mid-cycle update late last year. The SUV is 4,220mm long, 1,740mm wide and 1,615mm high, and that makes it very close in size to the popular Hyundai Creta, which is 4,270mm long, 1,780mm wide and 1,665mm high. At 2,550mm, the Baojun 510, however, has a slightly shorter wheelbase than the Creta’s 2,590mm. The SUV sold abroad comes powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine that’s good for around 115hp.

    The Baojun 510 is a five-seat SUV and shares a lot of interior bits with the larger Baojun 530 (MG Hector). Its exterior styling too has a close resemblance to its larger sibling.
