Test mules of MG Motor's upcoming SUV Hector have been snapped totally undisguised in India. The test mules feature different wheel designs and other styling elements. As shown in the images, one of the test mules is finished in a metallic grey shade and the front is highlighted by silver trim seen around the grille, headlamp housing, bumper and sides.
This could be the lower variant in Hector’s line-up as it features silver alloy wheels at sides. It also gets exterior styling elements such as projector headlamps, LED daytime running lights, outside rear-view mirrors with integrated turn signals and roof rails for a sportier look.
The other test car was seen with chrome finish in front as it gets chrome trim around the radiator grille, headlamp housings and on the sides. Also visible were the dual-tone alloy wheels at sides and dark purple shade. This trim seems to the fully-loaded top-spec grade in Hector’s line-up.
While details deeming mechanicals will be revealed officially at the launch, reports are rife that MG Hector could get a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol unit under the hood. In terms of power, expect this engine to make maximum power of 141 bhp against 250 Nm torque. There will a diesel engine as well, which will be sourced from FCA. The engine in question is the 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder oil burner good for 171 bhp along with 350 Nm of top torque. It is expected to get a petrol-hybrid variant as well, though details are sketchy on the same.
