MG Hector Facelift Revealed Exterior Design

The sheet metal has not been modified in any way, only the softer plastics have been updated aesthetically.

The upgraded SUV, the MG Hector, was recently spotted without its camouflage, giving us our first glimpse at its new front end. The updated external design of the MG Hector has been released online ahead of its scheduled introduction later this month or in January 2023.

  • Hector facelift to get redesigned front and rear fascia
  • Will get completely new interior with 14-inch touchscreen
  • Expected to remain mechanically unchanged

MG Hector facelift: exterior design revealed in full

The new and improved MG Hector’s face has been given a sleek and modern makeover. There has been a considerable enlargement of the grille, which now extends lower into the bumper. The LED Daytime Running Lamps are positioned high and have a new diamond-like pattern that is framed in angular chrome.

The Hector retains its signature split-headlamp layout, but its main headlamp cluster now features a pentagonal housing that mirrors the grille’s appearance. Moreover, the chrome brackets that once surrounded the headlights have been replaced with new gloss black inserts. The silver finish on the current model’s chin has been replaced with chrome, and the central air inlet has been relocated. The Hector refresh, on the other hand, hasn’t changed one bit externally; even the 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels are the same as on the present model.

The updated version of the Hector features a new tail-lamp assembly with a red strip connecting the lamps at either end and the name “Hector” spelled out in full below the number plate housing. New sharp creases can be seen on the back bumper, which has also been updated. The present model’s black and silver two-tone paint job has been replaced with a simpler appearance including new, discreet chrome inserts.

Updates to the Hector’s appearance appear to be limited to the soft plastic components rather than the more expensive sheet metal.

MG Hector facelift: interior and features

MG has already shown off the updated cabin of the Hector, which features a massive 14-inch portrait-oriented touchscreen, the largest in any Indian mass-market vehicle. The ADAS emblem on the trunk lid confirms that it will have the technology, as well as a new digital instrument cluster and i-Smart technology.

MG Hector facelift: engine options

However, the MG Hector refresh won’t affect the vehicle’s internal workings in any way from the existing model. That means the two 1.5-liter turbo-petrol engines (one with mild hybrid technology) and the 2.0-liter diesel engine (with 170 hp) will remain in use. Gearbox options are also expected to remain the same.

MG Hector facelift: positioning and rivals

With a major step-up in features, the Hector facelift, as we have covered earlier, will likely be offered in fewer trims. It will keep going up against vehicles like the Mahindra XUV700 and the Tata Safari.
