MG Hector Shine variant to debut in India tomorrow
MG Motor is all set to launch a new Shine variant for its Hector SUV in India on August 12. It will join the existing Style, Super, Smart, and Sharp trims and is said to sit between the Super and Smart variants. The Shine trim will likely be equipped with a single-pane sunroof instead of a panoramic sunroof. Here's our roundup.
The MG Hector Shine will likely feature a muscular bonnet, a chrome surrounded blacked-out grille, a wide air dam, LED DRLs, LED fog lights, and sleek adjustable LED headlights. On the sides, it will be flanked by roof rails, blacked-out B-pillars, indicator-mounted ORVMs, and designer wheels. A roof-mounted spoiler, LED taillights, and a window washer will be available on the rear end.
Details regarding the engine of the MG Hector Shine are unknown. At present, the Hector comes with a 1.5-liter petrol engine (141hp/250Nm), a 1.5-liter petrol-hybrid motor (141hp/250Nm), and a 2.0-liter diesel mill (168hp/350Nm). Transmission duties are handled by a 6-speed manual or a DCT gearbox.
The MG Hector Shine will offer a spacious cabin with five seats, power windows, an adjustable steering wheel, a sunroof, and rear AC vents. It should also pack a touchscreen infotainment panel with support for Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Bluetooth connectivity. For safety, the four-wheeler should have two airbags, a rear-view camera, an engine immobilizer, and ABS with EBD.
The official pricing and availability details of the MG Hector Shine will be announced at the time of its launch tomorrow. For reference, the MG Hector currently falls in the price-bracket of Rs. 13.49-19.20 lakh (both prices, ex-showroom).
