The MG Hector is finally here! Yes it has been launched in India and if you had your sights set on one, this is the time to go and buy it. There’s so much the Hector has to offer right from the three engine options, the 360-degree surround camera and of course, its master piece- iSMART connected car technology.
But there’s more. MG is there for you and will be there for you once you buy the car thanks to the MG Shield package. It’s a comprehensive after sales package for the Hector and is aimed enhancing your ownership experience with MG’s first car for India.
5-5-5 Aftersales Service Package
The 5-5-5 package is the most salient feature of the MG shield package. The three 5’s in the name stand for five years unlimited warranty, five labour free services and five years of unlimited road side assistance.
MG is the first in the industry to offer to such a significant and comprehensive warranty package where even commercial buyers are covered for five years/1.5 lakh kilometres. But wait there’s more! This warranty also covers the 12V/48V batteries and tyres for one year as well as the infotainment system for three years. The Hector gets five labour free services and in addition, if a customer’s repair and delivery promised time is not met, MG will offer mobility support via its courtesy car program.
Finally there is also a five years/unlimited kilometres roadside assistance (RSA) package for private owners and five years/1.5 lakh for commercial buyers. The RSA also includes 24x7 medical assistance via the Pulse Hub service in case of emergencies.
Competitive Cost of Ownership
The Hector is not only the best to buy and own but also the best to run. The Hector is offered with best-in-segment cost of ownership. What do you pay? Well for the Hector petrol it is Rs 0.45 per kilometre, and for the Hector diesel, it is Rs 0.49 per kilometre. The figures mentioned above are calculated for one lakh kilometres of preventive maintenance in Delhi-NCR, and includes the cost of parts, consumables, labour and taxes.
