The new MG Hector 2021 facelift has finally arrived to set the bar high. It features almost everything a vehicle enthusiast wants. The beautiful cabin and the new sturdy wheels are undoubtedly tempting. Besides, the new petrol variant assures to be a lot more smoother and fuel-efficient without compromising on performance.
The unpredictable road condition and potholes have made Compact SUVs people’s number one choice in Nepal for a long time. Moreover, the MG Hector has spoilt customers with choices, thanks to its extensively comfortable cabin and drivetrain options. However, the emergence of several new-gen SUVs like Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta has turned many heads towards them. Therefore, MG introduced the new Hector to maintain its position and stay competitive in the market.
MG Hector 2021 Design
The new MG Hector 2021 is very much similar to its older variant with some subtle changes. It flaunts a new chrome-stud grille with chrome fringes that extends to the DRLs. Similarly, the bash plate boasts a different mesh pattern and gunmetal finish. The facelift appearance of the new MG Hector looks belligerent and quintessential at the same time.
The vehicle includes big 18-inch alloy wheels with optional dual-tone body colors. Moving on to the rear, the only update we see is the black applique taking the place of the distinct reflectors between the taillights. Therefore, the new MG Hector 2021 looks aggressive and exceedingly imposing.
MG Hector 2021 Interior
Unlike the exterior appearance, we see significant changes in the cabin. Correspondingly, the ventilated seats are the major upgrade that will keep you cool in hot and sultry weather. Similarly, there are two color options in the cabin, the dual-tone, and champagne-black. Besides, the piano-black and silver highlights add icing to the cake and further enhance the beauty of the cabin. Personally, we prefer the dual-tone as it looks a lot more classier and delightful.
On the other hand, the console buttons are weirdly placed and difficult to control, which is a significant downside.
Comfort has always been the benchmark in MG vehicles. And the new MG Hector 2021 keeps up with our expectations in terms of comfort. The expansive 10.4-inches vertical console remains the same, but the software is undoubtedly new. In addition, it also has wireless charging, eco mode, and parking brakes with auto-hold functions.
MG Hector 2021 does not fall short on features. Therefore, the vehicle flaunts an i-Smart car suite, a giant panoramic sunroof, auto climate control, cruise control, power-adjustable seats, ambient lighting, and auto-dimming mirrors. Besides, the Hector has become a lot more intelligent with features like real-time traffic and road updates. These features aware you of signals and speed cameras.
MG Hector 2021 Dynamics
The new MG Hector 2021 can easily take on rivals like Harrier, Duster, or even the Creta, especially when it comes to interior comfort. The adequate 1.5-liter petrol engine can generate a power of 141bhp at 5000rpm and 250Nm of torque at 1600/3600rpm. Besides, the company also taunts the vehicle to be more fuel-efficient. Thus, MG Hector can smoothly move through the busy traffics of Nepal.
The 18-inch alloy wheels make it further easier to drive in heavy traffic. However, the steering is a bit let down. It lacks a lot of character and feels dead.
