The new 2021 MG Hector facelift has been launched in India at a starting price of Rs 12,89,800 (ex-showroom) with a slew of new features and cosmetic upgrades as well. While the exterior has received some minor tweaks and so has the cabin, the highlight of the feature upgrades include Hindi voice commands. For example, to turn up the volume, you could now say ‘volume badhao’, to turn up the temperature, you could now say ‘temperature badhao’ or ‘mujhe thand lag rahi hai’ or to open the sunroof, you could say ‘sunroof kholo’ or ‘khul ja sim sim’.

The 2021 Hector facelift comes with a new front grille finished with a chrome surround, a dual-tone paint scheme, new larger 18-inch alloy wheels and a new black insert on the boot door. The iSmart connected features now include an external WiFi connection, Accuweather updates, and 31 “Hinglish” voice commands. The new features in the cabin include a dual-tone Black-Beige finish for the interior, ventilated seats, and a wireless charging Pad.
