The Hector, India’s first Internet SUV, was introduced by MG Motor India in 2019 and has since set a new bar for SUVs in India by giving shape to its philosophy of connected, autonomous, shared, and electric mobility. MG recently launched the Next-Gen Hector at the Auto Expo with a host of exciting new technologies, intuitive features and driving comforts. The new SUV, with its all-new striking bold exterior and luxurious interiors, evolved safety features, and elegant design elements offer an unprecedented drive and user experience. With India's largest 14-inch HD portrait infotainment system and a brand-new user interface, the interior of the Next-Gen Hector is designed to offer a cinematic and immersive experience complemented by handcrafted textures, soft-touch tactile, and versatile ambience on demand.
