Among many foreign mass-market carmakers in India, MG Motor seems to have figured out what Indian car buyers want. Hence, the Chinese-owned British brand has been able to generate good volumes every month. Also, the carmaker constantly provides updates to its lineup in order to remain competitive.

MG launched updated Hector 2023 model earlier this year. It came with a lot of updates on the outside as well as on the inside. What remained the same, was the alloy wheel design.

This was surprising, as earlier spy shots had suggested 2023 Hector to get a new alloy wheel design. Seems like that is soon going to change, 2023 Hector with new alloys has now arrived at the dealer yard. With every update, MG has updated the alloy wheel design of Hector. So when they did not update alloy wheel design with the 2023 Hector update, it was a bit surprising.

Hector 2023 was launched at the Auto Expo in Jan this year. It was priced from Rs 14.73 lakh to Rs 22.43 lakh, ex-sh. Apart from adding new alloys, MG has also updated the engine options to meet BS6 phase 2 emission norms. This will result in a price hike of up to Rs 60,000 for Hector range of SUVs.
