Crossover MG Hector, which is called the luxury copy of the new generation Chevrolet Captiva, continues to be in high demand. General Motors and SAIC announced the start of sales at the end of June. It is produced under the British brand MG.

The luxurious MG Hector crossover in terms of appearance differs from the second generation Chevrolet Captiva only in a new radiator grille and nameplates with the brand logo. Also new to the MG brand is a richer list of available options. At the beginning of August, more than 28 thousand orders for this SUV were issued in India, and by September 1, this figure had grown immediately by 11 thousand. In general, according to the press service of the brand, only 3,500 people have received commodity crossovers since MG Hector entered the market.

The production capacity of the Indian GM-SAIC plant is not enough to satisfy the rush demand for MG Hector. Because of this, the automaker was forced to stop accepting new orders and focus on ways to expand production.

MG Hector is only available in India. Local motorists were offered a cross with a 1.5-liter engine rated at 150 horsepower or a two-liter 170-horsepower diesel engine. Motors are combined with 6-speed manual transmission or “robot”. Drive – non-alternative front. SUVs were equipped with adaptive cruise control, electrically adjustable front seats, video surveillance cameras, a leather interior, a giant multimedia touchscreen, etc. For the most affordable MG Hector, you will have to pay 1,218,000 rupees
