The MG Hector has just been launched in India at a starting price of Rs12.18 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi)for the base Style variant and going up to Rs16.88 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the top-end diesel Sharp trim. The Hector comes in four trim-levels and three engine options. What do you all think of the MG Hector's pricing?

MG has ticked all the right boxes. Price, Features, Panoramic Sunroof, Connected Car Tech, Loads of Chrome (very tastefully done), punchy engines with hybrid and DCT gearbox. One thing missing is enthusiastic driving experience. But how many actually want that in India? Very few. So MG has gone with the trend to provide plush and superior experience rather than for people who love handling while driving

Hey, I came across some images of the Hector 6 seater. These images have shot of the interior that shows off the middle row of seats. I also came across the patent filing of the Hecto Plus name by MG. What do you guys think of the name for the Hector 6 seater and do you think it will create some space for itself in the market?

Here are some new images of the Hector Plus (6 seat Hector) that I have found. The images showcase the side-profile and sections of the front-end design like the new grille and bumper. Also visible in these pictures are the captain seats in the second row.

I came across this interesting image that shows all the variation of the Baojun 530. That includes the MG Hector, the Chevrolet Captiva and a few others. All of these essentially use the same platform, features and design, with some minor changes to differentiate the models from each other. What do you guys think of seeing all the variations together in one place?

Here are some new images of the MG Hector Plus which showcase the exterior and interiors of the upcoming three-row SUV. The cars in these pictures aren't sporting any camouflage and hence we can see the revised bumpers, headlights and taillights. We also get a look at the interior with the six-seat configuration and tan interior upholstery colour. What do you guys think of the upcoming MG Hector Plus?

Why no * Thank You * ads in the Newspapers mentioning actual numbers of MG Hector Plus vehicles booked during the booking period that ended recently?

Does anyone know about these numbers ?

Did anybody see any coverage by any magazine's about the booking numbers of Hector Plus ?

No doubt Hector is outselling others in its class but this SECRECY about Hector Plus is making me uncomfortable...

Your inputs
