·         Expect the new BS6-compliant MG Hector to cost more than its present value.

·         The petrol variants could witness a hike of Rs 45,000 to 60,000.

·         The diesel version could end up costing up to Rs 1.25 lakhs more.

BS6 emission norms will become the standard feature from April 01, 2020. All vehicle manufacturers are gearing up to equip their cars with BS6-compliance features. These upgrades are expensive. Therefore, a price hike is invariable. The MG Hector diesel price will be up by almost Rs 1.25 lakhs, whereas the petrol variants could expect a hike in the range of Rs 45,000 to 60,000.

Apart from the engine upgrades, there will not be any changes for the MG Hector. The vehicle will continue to be available with the following existing engines.

·         1.5L turbo petrol

·         1.5L turbo petrol with a 48V mild-hybrid system

·         2L diesel engine

The price hike for the diesel engines is more because of the complicated tweaks required to meet BS6 emission norms. These upgrades include a urea tank and the installation of a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). One can also expect the upgraded diesel versions to feature a start-stop ignition system to enhance fuel efficiency.

The vehicle will continue with the existing 6-speed manual transmission system. The diesel engine will also not get an automatic variant for the time being.

As on date, the booking options for the MG Hector are closed. It could reopen sometime in February. The existing customers who are waiting for the delivery of the MG Hector will start receiving the BS6 versions after exhausting the BS4-compliant stocks.

Reports say that MG Hector will be introducing a new six-seater version of the MG Hector known as Hector Plus. One can also expect a plethora of MG cars at the Auto Expo in February. Some of the models that could be on display include the Hector Plus, a new MPV concept version, and the Maxus D90 SUV.

The Roewe Vision i-concept was originally on display at the 2019 Auto Shanghai event. This vehicle could come with the MG logo at the 2020 Auto Expo.
