2022 MG Hector – What Do We Know?

Reports of MG preparing a facelift are not new. And the latest teaser confirms that there has been quite some progress. As mentioned earlier, reports suggest MG will launch the 2022 MG Hector towards the end of this year. Apart from the new touchscreen, there are also reports of what we can expect from the SUV. According to a few sources, the 2022 Hector’s ‘Sharp’ variant could see a price hike of INR 2 lakh. Meanwhile, the top-end ‘Savvy’ variant could see a price hike of INR 2.5 lakh. The major contributor to the top-end variant’s price hike will be the inclusion of ADAS.

In India, MG’s Gloster was the first premium SUV to get Level 1 Autonomous Technology. At the same time, the Astor was the first SUV with Level 2 Autonomous Technology. As of now, we are not sure if Hector would get Level 1 or Level 2 Autonomous Technology. However, since the Hector slots above the Astor, it could get the latter.
