Re: Scoop! MG Hector facelift launch plans; feature updates & price

How quickly the news spreads after team-bhp...the Instagram handle had these photos since 2-3 days but since the discussion started every portal is giving the news of new hector. Love this forum.
Btw the car does look great and if it's previous shortcomings are sorted, would be a great car to own.

Thanks to you!

After all the damage already done, seems like MG has got the original post removed. Glad we atleast got to see it, makes it easier to wait for another month.

The car is looking good in this deep red shade. With blackened chrome bits, the car is looking good. I'm now confused whether to go for this colour or black.

I have a hard time with touchscreens and urban traffic. I think it is a major distraction especially when there are no physical controls for volume etc. This obsession with automation and larger than ever infotainment interfaces is not a good one.

Re: Scoop! MG Hector facelift launch plans; feature updates & price

As per info received, this red car has reached NCR at flagship dealership's stockyard. No other colour has come in yet.

Got a confirmation on the pictures as well - final design and finish is same as the one revealed in pictures 2 days back.

The launch may happen on 20th Dec or 5th Jan, followed by display at Auto Expo on 13th Jan. Deliveries to begin post 20th Jan.

Any word on pricing specifics yet?

Side bit of news, while the current Hector will be sold alongside, it will be phased out soon unless significant bookings for it come post new gen launch from what I hear.

No new updates on pricing on facelift.

Though, back in May it was expected to be dearer by 1.5 Lakhs vs. Sharp CVT at that point in time.
Since then, Hector Sharp has seen 1 price increase of 25k (1.28%) in Sep.
Next one is expected starting Jan (2-3% as per latest article -~50k for Sharp). Bringing ex-sh price to 20.1L (23L onroad in GGN).
I feel facelift may command 1 lakh premium over it and not 1.5L, given the 75k price jump on current. (Don't understan what input costs are still going up?! Chip shortage is getting sorted and commodities saw some correction/plateaued. Maybe Companies are trying to push up prices till the point demand continues! )

Can expect facelift to be launched at 21L ex-sh (24L onroad GGN). Rest we will get reality check soon!

The color and rear end of the car looks garish. I wish they toned down the styling and lettering (ADAS and the INTERNET INSIDE) a bit and made it more acceptable to all. I wish MG changes it's mind regards the diesel automatic option which will be welcomed with open arms by the market.

MG Motor India has announced that it will increase the prices of all models from January 1, 2022. The price hike will be up to Rs 90,000 across its range.
Well happy new years, I guess. Sincerely hoping that just for Adas and a bit of facelift doesnít take the prices from VFM to ₹₹₹ just for the sake of it.

Iíve been disappointed before with Tucson price already.

We can only hope that this 90k is for Gloster. In case of Hector, I feel in case of Hector:
1) current Sharp will see sharp increase of 40-50k
2) Facelift without ADAS will command 30-40k more and
3) Facelift with ADAS will add another 50k (1.2 to 1.5L extra over current price!)

But! 1.5 Lakhs gap was expected back in May 2022. Now that MG has taken 1 price increase of 30k in Sep and another expected starting Jan (assuming 40k), MG may give us facelift with ADAS at max 80k. Anything above will put it closer to competition, making it lose its VFM tag!

Good going for a Chinese car. Being Chinese and not giving something that others dont offer (mostly, now we have many choices), they should be happy. People don't consider who owns it and are still buying it

Well deserved milestone for capable car. Despite uncalled negativity for brand being owned by China the car does well because of it’s quality, excellent after sales service and reliability.

I think if GOI approves the capital infusion in MG India, this brand will offer good and healthy competition in our market.

Right! Similarly, I don't understand why people keep buying American brand cars even though America has long history of instigating wars globally, giving funds to our beloved neighbour, printing money in name of quantitative easing to devalue global currencies and what not! Let's not talk about Germans, with Nazi background!

Jokes apart, let's appreciate a car for what it offers against your hard earned money!


PS - Mods if it sounds political, please delete this post.

Agree. Ranting against a car owned by a Chinese company but made in India while ignoring the multiple Chinese-made chipsets, components and parts in everything from the TV to the toothbrush you own is just
