The MG Hector SUV will be offered with two different interior schemes
The long-awaited MG Hector has officially been revealed by the MG Motor India. However, the company hasn’t revealed the interior pictures of the new SUV. Some of the interior pictures of the Hector have been leaked on the internet, which suggests that the SUV could be offered in two different interior schemes.
The leaked images reveal that the MG Hector will offer dual-tone black and beige interior scheme. Though, the official video of the Hector shows an all-black interior scheme. This leads to speculation that the new MG Hector SUV will come with different interior scheme. The leaked pictures reveal that the dashboard of the SUV gets beige leather treatment. Apart from the vertically stacked 10.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, the MG Hector is fitted with three-spoke, flat-bottom multi-functional steering wheel. The start/stop button is positioned on the left of the steering wheel.
