SAIC Motors is positioning MG branded Hector against Honda CRV and Hyundai Tucson.

Unless they 1. Price it too competitively (Baojun 530 is priced between Rs 8 to 12 lakh equivalent in China) , and
2. Provide a clear timeline for increasing their touch points beyond initial 100,

they are going to face similar hurdles as for FIAT's Jeep Compass, which despite being a great product, has failed to sustain great numbers of sales.

SAIC motor sales alone, within China, outsells the entire car production in India. Moreover, their MPV is among the top 20 world sales in 2018 (Toyota Corrolla retains No. 1 ranking). Just an indication, perhaps that their quality of products may not be bad.

Incidentally SAIC -GM-Wuling, the parent entity, has released Baojun 530 as Wuling Almaz (diamond) in Jakarta yesterday at an on-road price of Indonesian Rupiah 318,800,000 (Rs. 16 lakh equivalent)

We have spotted the MG Hector testing on Indian roads multiple times in the last few months. But, all these were camouflaged images. Now, the first undisguised photo has emerged, thanks to eurocarspotter on Instagram.

Proudly wearing the MG Hector badge, the car was spotted near The Lalit Hotel in London. It was being filmed, for its official TVC, which will be launched along with the car in India. At the wheel of the car was British actor Benedict Cumberbatch, known globally for his role as Sherlock Holmes. In the past, Benedict has also featured in a Jaguar Land Rover ad as a narrator.

India-bound MG Hector Hybrid details revealed

x?n=http%3a%2f%2fcdni.autocarindia.com%2fExtraImages%2f20190329123654_MG-Hector-hybrid-exclusive.jpg


Much is known about the upcoming MG Hector already but we can now confirm the SUV will come with a petrol-hybrid option in addition to the petrol and diesel engine versions. The MG Hector hybrid will use a 48V mild hybrid system. Compared to a full-blown ‘strong’ hybrid, a mild-hybrid system has a far simpler (read cost-effective) setup, but still brings a number of benefits. Paired to the 1.5-litre, 143hp turbo-petrol engine, the 48-volt mild-hybrid system in the MG Hector will provide up to 20Nm of additional torque at low speeds that will help counter turbo lag and allow improved acceleration in stop-start city traffic. Additionally, the Hector hybrid will also feature regenerative braking, which will use the vehicle’s kinetic energy to recharge the 48-volt battery, and an automatic engine stop-start system that’ll switch the engine off at idle speeds to save fuel.

MG Hector Sharp petrol manual hybrid – First impression from dealer yard

mg-hector-first-impression-review-2.jpg


The Voice command through app is just simply amazing, makes one so relaxed and car is putting on AC, setting the temp you want, Opening the Panoramic Roof, or even turning it off is a whiff. The quality of black leather used is very classy. Steering control and grip tuned to ones likeness. The best part is the 10.4 ” Touch Screen right in the centre to make u scroll so swiftly !

mg-hector-first-impression-review-1.jpg


The Leg room of Rear passengers is the best in class.. Its huuuuuuuuuuge ! With flat bed when rear seats are folded. Not to miss the boot has got good amount of space and opens and closes fully with a push button!! Amazing feature which only cars of 60 plus lakhs range get!
