2023 MG Hector Facelift Design
Starting with the front of the SUV, a brand-new front fascia has been added to the exterior changes. The front grille on the Hector is now significantly bigger and bolder-looking, and it is accompanied by much more angular surrounds that have a dark chrome finish and inserts with diamond-inspired designs. The SUV is unaltered from the sides, but it gets updated LED inserts between the taillamps in the back. New faux exhaust tips have also been added to the rear bumper.
The new Hector’s interior has undergone the most significant improvements, away from the exterior. The company has completely redesigned and reorganised the cabin of the 2023 Hector. It now has a brand-new user interface and India’s largest 35.56 cm (14-inch) HD portrait infotainment system. Additionally, it has a cutting-edge first-in-segment Digital Bluetooth Key and Key Sharing capability that will assist the owners in operating the vehicle in the event that they misplace their physical keys. The Next-Gen Hector Plus will be offered in seating options for 5, 6, and 7. The interiors come with a wooden finish and are available in argil brown and black. The 7-seater vehicle has bench seats, while the 6-seater SUV has captain’s chairs.
