Since the dual tone versions of the Hector are based on top-spec trim, there are three engine options on offer.
The MG Hector Dual Delight gets a contrasting roof and wing mirrors that set this particular variant apart from the standard SUV. The dual tone Hector variants get a black roof, black A-Pillar, and black outer rear view mirrors. Apart from these cosmetic changes, there are no other changes. The Hector Dual Delight is available in two colour options — Glaze Red and Candy White.
Being based on the Sharp variant, the list of comfort and convenience features is extensive.

Coming to the engine, the dual tone Hector is available with a choice of three engines, similar to the Sharp trim. The SUV gets the 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine capable of 141 bhp, a 1.5-litre petrol hybrid motor capable of the same power, and finally the 2.0-litre turbo diesel mill that makes 169 bhp. Gearbox options include a 6-speed DCT and a manual with the petrol trims and a 6-speed manual with the diesel.
