Second Owner Review on MG Hector DCT Automatic: Apar Bansal after driving MG Hector DCT for Long trip of 1450 Kms
My first long drive with my MG Hector Sharp DCT Automatic on Long Trip from Chennai to Bangalore, Mysore, Coorg, Hassan and back to Chennai with driven in all terrain conditions - Highways, Hilly Terrain, Semi Urban Roads and City Traffic with Hector been fully loaded with all 5 Passengers and Boot Space fully loaded with luggage
Overall it’s a good car for long drives with enormous space and superb comfort. Pickup could be a little better and Rear Seat Entertainment option if provided will add to kids pleasure..
Areas of Improvement where MG could do better: The workshops need to be mapped in TomTom. Only Sales Outlets are mapped for Chennai. Also, it would be good if they have it in Google Maps, its easier to find that ways
Update by Owner after driving MG Hector DCT Automatic over 5500 Kms
If I have to rate the top 3 things of MG Hector DCT Sharp Automatic, they will be Comfort, Space and Features (Touchscreen Controls, Internet, Panaromic Sunroof, Cruise Control). Besides this, some of the things worth mentioning are Reclining Rear Seat, One Touch Boot Closing, Simple Parking Brakes and Auto Hill Hold, Apple CarPlay integration has really compounded the awesome experience.
The car runs smoothly on highways with full grip and overtaking can be fun. In city traffic, it’s a real saviour from frequent gear shifts which tires me a lot. The pickup (stop-start) could have been better. Although Slow - High speed pickup is good
The headlights are oddly placed but give good view in total darkness and do not give glare to the front car. But in semi lighted areas, the headlamps are not much useful.
Small teething issues are there and frequent but are well taken care by the Dealership service. But Question is why they should come?
The accessories are a real disaster. The quality is bad and availability worse.
And last but not the least, the fuel efficiency is 6-7 kmpl in city and 10-11 kmpl on highways. Although it lot depends on traffic, driving habit, AC and terrain. In a nutshell, if you are ready to pay a little extra for your comfort, go for the DCT version. Overall a 4.5/5 for MG Hector DCT Sharp.
