After the Astor and Gloster SUVs, MG has applied its all-black 'Blackstorm' treatment on the Hector SUV as well. MG has released the Hector Blackstorm edition in India, with an introductory price of Rs 21.24 lakh (ex-showroom) and this special edition of the car is available in five, six, and seven-seat versions. The Hector Blackstorm Edition is based on one-below-top Sharp Pro variant. 

The Hector Blackstorm Edition is painted in a Starry-black exterior colour scheme and replaces all chrome features on the SUV with a gun-metal finish accented with red accents. This treatment includes the grille, the MG logo, the line on the bumpers, the cladding at the base of the doors, the trim linking the rear tail lights, and the false skid plates.

The headlights and taillights also have a smoked-out effect and the SUV has 18-inch alloy wheels with red callipers. Even the wing mirrors get some red accents to them. Apart from all this, the car doesn't have any changes made to its body.

Just like the other Blackstorm Editions from MG, the Hector Blckstorm too gets a blacked-out cabin. The seats are likewise upholstered in black leatherette, with 'Blackstorm' imprinted on the front headrests.

There are no significant changes to the amenities since the Hector already includes a 14-inch portrait-style infotainment screen, linked car technology, a panoramic sunroof, multi-colour ambient lighting, a motorized tailgate, and ventilated front seats. The safety package remains unchanged, with six airbags, ABS with EBD, parking sensors, a 360-degree camera, ADAS technology, and electronic stability control.

The Blackstorm Edition uses both of the current Hector's engine options including a 143PS 1.5-litre turbo-petrol and a 170PS 2-litre diesel engine. The diesel engine comes with a 6-speed manual transmission, whereas the petrol engine only has a CVT.
