It offers large black finish grill, new design LED DRL, projector headlamps and fog lamps. As per my observation the use of chrome elements is less in this as compare to Hector. This gets diamond cut 17-inch alloy wheels as same as Hector which I think it should be of 18-inch. 18-inch alloy wheels make perfect combination with this large size SUV. And its upcoming rival Tata Gravitas is also offering 18 inch alloy wheels.
This offers dual pane Panoramic sunroof same as Hector. Now lets talk about rear looks so from the rear it just looks like MG Hector. But there are some changes such as Reflector design, tail lights.
