Many automakers have recently been releasing special blacked-out editions of their cars, featuring not only a black exterior body shade but also incorporating sportier design elements inside and out. Following this trend, the MG Hector is set to receive the Blackstorm edition variant on April 10 and it has officially been teased. Initially the Blackstorm treatment was introduced with the MG Gloster, followed by the MG Astor, and now the MG Hector will be the third SUV to get the all-black edition.

Please note that MG has only teased the Blackstorm edition of the Hector 5-seater, and not Hector Plus which comes in 6- and 7-seater seating layouts. 

What’s In The Teaser

MG Gloster Black Storm

Through the official teaser, MG has fully revealed the fascia of the Hector Blackstorm. As seen with the previous Blackstorm editions of the Gloster and Astor, the Hector Blackstorm will feature an all-black exterior shade with red inserts around the headlight housing and on the ORVMs. The teaser image also showcases blacked-out alloy wheels with red-painted brake callipers. Additionally, the 'Blackstorm' moniker is visible on the fender.
