The Hector SUV, along with the Astor SUV, form the backbone of MG Motor's sales in India. Averaging around 1,500 units every month, Hector leads MG Motor's fleet in terms of sales ever since it was launched in India three years ago. In 2021, MG had offered a minor facelift version of the SUV. It is also slated to get its new generation version with several upgrades by next month.

MG Motor offers the Hector SUV at a starting price of 14.42 lakh (ex-showroom). Offered with both petrol and diesel engines, mated to manual as well as CVT transmission options, the top-spec variant of the Hector SUV is currently available at 20.36 lakh (ex-showroom). It rivals the likes of Tata Harrier, Hyundai Alcazar, Mahindra Scorpio N and Mahindra XUV700. The price of the model will increase from January when the carmaker increases prices across all its models.
