 The MG Hector has always been something loved by family buyers very much in India. In a recent update, Morris Garages had rolled out Shine variant of the car that is positioned above the Super and below the smart. Here are some of the things that can help you decide if you want to opt for MG Hector Shine or go for some other option.

The MG Hector Shine misses misses out on a lot of things

The MG Hector has always been great in terms of looks and there no doubt about the looks. There are LED floating indicators on DRLs which do looks awesome however the MG Hector Shine do not get floating indicators on DRLs. Front fascia is same as the other Variants as chrome grille adds a lot to the appeal. Projector headlamps are standard so no compromise done on offering the feature. 

Is MG Hector automatic
Is MG Hector automatic? Yes it's an automatic


Alloy wheels offer the same design that the super variant used to offer since it's launch. The 18-inch ones on the smart and sharp are surely better anyday in looks however these are also decent as per the pricing. Looks do matter especially when coming to looks of car and rims however not very much in the case of a family buyer. Mirrors require manual folding however electric adjustment is offered. Side profile remains the same however being an automatic, this variant offers keyless entry on which manual trim lacks.

The rear looks better than  pre facelift Hector

The taillights do not feature floating indicators like the upper variants which looks a little basic. Strip from rear was redesigned which shows the brand's focus towards attention to detail on their car. A question that every buyer asks is about the build quality and the Hector has great build quality for better safety.

The touchscreen is just phenomenal


The  MG Hector Shine has everything that just makes it a very VFM package as per the price. Features like android auto and apply car play are offered with the touchscreen system which appears to be larger in size. All the connected car features which the Hector offers are reserved only for smart and sharp variants. Instrument cluster features analog unit with digital display in between which does look great. One thing that family buyers will appreciate is the well cushioned seats that have great comfort to be offered on the front. Visibility is great from the windshield that helps in better focus on the roads.

The car is very much great in terms of practically


The MG Hector Shine do feature fabric seats however seat covers can be installed from the dealership. Windows are large on size and the cabin overall doesn't feel claustrophobic. There is also ample amount of headroom and legroom on the offer with the car that makes it a perfect car for highway trips. India is a sunroof oriented market and of course electric sunroof is offered in shine variant. The higher trim Sharp gets Panoramic sunroof but electric Sunroof on offer still makes it a great package.

MG Hector Shine performance

The MG Hector is not an enthusiast's delight


The MG Hector Shine comes with both petrol and diesel powertrains where diesel is an enthusiast's delight. The 1.5-petrol motor offered in the car doesn't have great performance due to less power to weight ratio. It's just a machine oriented towards refinement and regular day driving. Go for a manual if you love shifting gears otherwise CVT is better for your traffic rides in city. The CVT may affect performance but it's a great choice for driving at low speeds without compromise on fuel efficiency.

MG Hector Shine safety


The standard safety features which the Hector offers like Traction control, Electronic Stability control, etc. are just great as safety is a concern for many buyers. There are no side airbags but surely dual airbags are offered. With many other aspects, safety is surely something that adds value to the car and the buyers and the Hector overall did great job in many aspects.
