The MG Hector has been the talk of the town since even before it was spied testing on our roads last year. It promised to bring tech features earlier unknown to Indian audiences. And boy has it lived up to that promise. While the buzz around its tech specs and features still hasn't died, not much has been said about how MG has prioritised safety with the Hector. And the way it has shaped up so far, the Hector certainly looks like the perfect amalgamation of luxury, technology and safety. Without further ado, let's jump right into the safety part of the picture.
Safety features like dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child seat anchors and rear parking sensors are offered as standard. But the list doesn’t end there. The Hector also gets top-shelf safety tech like side and curtain airbags, electronic stability control, traction control, hill hold control, 360-degree camera, fatigue reminder and a lot more.
But what really gives it an edge over its rivals are the following features, courtesy the ace up its sleeve, its eSIM tech:
Pulse Hub: An app on the infotainment system, this lets you call primary as well as emergency numbers, in the event of a mishap. The Pulse Hub also comes in handy when you want to contact roadside assistance or general assistance services at the touch of the I-Call button.
AI-based Voice Commands: The Hector comes with AI-based voice commands that allow you to control the AC and sunroof, among other functions, without taking your eyes off the road. The system can detect over 100 voice commands and is activated by the hot word, “Hello MG”.
Geo-Fencing upto 100km: As soon as the car goes out of a fixed perimeter, the owner gets a notification regarding the same. It is very helpful especially when a driver is given the charge of the vehicle.
Vehicle Collision Alarm: Again a feature for chauffeur-driven cars, the system sends a notification to the owner in case of a collision.
Speed Alert System: The system notifies the owner if the Hector goes over 80kmph and 120kmph. This is particularly helpful when handing over the car to your children or the driver, as you can keep a check on if they are speeding or not.
Stolen Vehicle Tracking Assistance: It allows you to check the location of your MG Hector in the event of theft.
With a long list of features, the Hector surely scores big on the safety front. It is not surprising since the legendary carmaker, MG, has been at the forefront of innovation from several decades. And since the Hector is the first MG product for the Indian market, the British carmaker has not left any stone unturned to mark its presence here, especially in terms of safety.
