In India, the MG Hector was introduced in 2019 and has since been the British brand’s best-selling model. To preserve Hector’s popularity, Morris Garages has updated the SUV with several additional features and comforts, including a CVT gearbox, since its launch.
In order to keep up with rivals like the Tata Harrier, the manufacturer has added a new model to the SUV’s lineup. The Shine is Hector’s mid-variant, and it comes with a slew of current amenities.

The compact SUV now starts with the Style trim level and progresses to the Sharp trim level. With this, the pricing of an MG Hector in India currently ranges from Rs. 13.5 lakh to 19.36 lakh (Ex-showroom).
