MG Hector Blackstorm Edition: A Stealthy Stunner Arrives on April 10th

MG Hector Blackstorm Edition

Gear up for a darker, sportier Hector! MG Motor India is raising the stakes in the mid-size SUV segment with the upcoming launch of the MG Hector Blackstorm Edition. Scheduled to hit dealerships on April 10th, this new variant promises a head-turning aesthetic with its menacing all-black exterior and fiery red accents.

Striking Black with a Hint of Red Fury

The most prominent feature of the Hector Blackstorm Edition is undoubtedly its bold, all-black exterior. This color scheme exudes an aura of sophistication and mystery, perfectly capturing the essence of the “Blackstorm” moniker. To further enhance the sporty appeal, designers have replaced all chrome elements with sleek dark chrome accents. The blacked-out treatment extends to the alloy wheels, adding a touch of aggression and dynamism.

But the Blackstorm Edition isn’t all about darkness. Strategic pops of red add a touch of vibrancy to the overall design. These red accents are expected to be present on the brake calipers, adding a hint of sportiness, and possibly even incorporated into the headlamp bezels or roof rails for a more unified look.

A Matching Dark Symphony for the Interiors

While official details about the interiors are yet to be revealed, following the design language established by the Astor and Gloster Blackstorm editions, we can anticipate a similarly thematic black interior with red accents. This could include black upholstery with red stitching, red ambient lighting, and possibly even red inserts on the dashboard or door trims. This color combination will create a sporty and luxurious cabin environment, perfect for those who appreciate a touch of drama in their everyday driving experience.

Unchanged Performance with Expected Feature Retention

The MG Hector Blackstorm Edition is expected to retain the existing engine options of the standard Hector. This means you can choose between a 1.5-liter turbocharged petrol engine or a 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine. Both engines will likely be offered with the same transmission options available in the current Hector lineup.

In terms of features, the Blackstorm Edition is also expected to carry over the extensive equipment list of the standard Hector. This includes a panoramic sunroof, a 360-degree parking camera, a large touchscreen infotainment system with MG’s latest i-Smart connectivity suite, a premium sound system, automatic climate control, and a comprehensive suite of safety features.

MG Hector Blackstorm Edition’s Expected Price and Competition

Since the Blackstorm Edition is likely to be based on the higher-end variants of the standard Hector, we can expect a slight price premium over the corresponding standard models. The current Hector retails in India between ₹13.98 lakh and ₹21.94 lakh (ex-showroom).

The MG Hector Blackstorm Edition will join the growing segment of special edition SUVs with an all-black treatment. It will compete with established rivals like the recently launched Tata Harrier Dark Edition and the Mahindra XUV700 Black, as well as other popular mid-size SUVs like the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos, which also offer sporty variants.
