MG Hector 7-seater launch could be before April 2020.
The best aspect of this launch is the MG Hector price that could be as aggressive as its 5-seater variant.
One can expect the 7-seater MG Hector price to be in the range of Rs 12.9 lakhs.
The British automobile manufacturer, MG Motors, is planning to enter the Indian automobile market with the release of four SUVs over the next couple of years. The MG Hector has evoked tremendous support from Indian SUV lovers, as the MG Hector bookings cross 1500 units in just one month since launch. The pricing of the MG Hector has come as a revelation.
The MG Hector SUV expects to compete with not only the Tata Harrier or Jeep Compass but also with Mahindra XUV500 and Hyundai Creta. The 5-seater MG Hector ex-showroom price is in the range of Rs 12.18 to Rs 16.88 lakhs. One expects the 7-seater MG Hector price to be Rs 12.9 lakhs.
MG Motors India plans to expand its sales points for the MG Hector from the existing 120 to around 250 by the end of 2019. The popularity of the 5-seater MG Hector SUV is the prime reason for the forthcoming launch of the 7-seater version. The third-row addition makes it a complete family car.
The existing SUV design is large enough to accommodate a couple of more passengers without compromising on the boot space. The launch of the 7-seater MG Hector will pit it directly against the Tata Buzzard, the 7-seater Harrier. Therefore, MG Motors is pricing its 7-seater MG Hector aggressively.
The 7-seater MG Hector engine could be similar to the 5-seater version. The 2-litre FCA-sourced engine pairs with a 6-speed manual transmission while delivering the power of 170PS and torque of 350Nm. The existing 5-seater MG Hector features such as Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto connectivity will continue to be available with the 7-seater MG Hector variant. The MG Hector exteriors like its sunroof and automatic headlamps will be present. MG Motors plans to have similar MG Hector interiors like a 360-degree camera, adjustable driver seat, and i-smart app features.
