MG Hector-Based Wuling Almaz To Get New RS Variant With ADAS
This will be the new top-spec variant of the SUV in the southeast Asian country.
The Wuling Almaz sold in Indonesia is set to get an RS variant along with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), soon.
It is essentially a rebadged version of the MG Hector that is sold under different brands (such as the Baojun 530 and Chevrolet Captiva) in different countries by China’s SAIC.
Recently, the Wuling Almaz RS was spied undisguised in what looks like a dealership yard in Indonesia. Up front, the car has a new radiator grille and red trim that runs the entire width of the SUV.
It is impossible to miss the overtly large front splitter, on the car painted in white with a black roof. Also, the large radar sensor sits smack in the middle of the front bumper.
At the rear though, the model looks exactly like the MG Hector, but the bumper is new. Only 1 interior image of the Wuling Almaz RS is available and there seem to be no marked changes inside the car.
This new top-of-the-line RS variant is set to get ADAS such as Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, among others.
Also, the car will feature Intelligent High Beam Assistance, Vehicle Remote Control, Vehicle Positioning, Bluetooth Key, Geo-fencing Security, Online Navigation, and so on.
The SUV is expected to be offered with the same engine options as before in Indonesia, with the changes being only cosmetic.
It has been rumoured that MG India has plans to offer ADAS on the Hector by introducing a new top-spec variant, as well as on its ZS petrol SUV.
It is possible that the design updates seen on the Wuling Almaz RS could make it to the rumoured new top-spec the variant of the Hector in India. Also, MG is soon expected to offer a CVT gearbox option with the Hector.
