MG Motor India has announced that the bookings for their upcoming 6-seater version of the Hector SUV, called as the Hector Plus, have begun across India. The company has also announced that the MG Hector Plus will launch in India on July 13, 2020. This would make the Hector Plus, the third model to be launched by MG Motor India following the MG Hector and the MG ZS electric SUV.

The 6-seater MG Hector Plus is based on the already existing 5-seater MG Hector and has similar dimensions except for the fact that the former is 65mm longer in length, which is mainly due to the new front and rear bumpers that the car gets. There are some subtle design changes on the Hector Plus too, in order to make it stand apart against the regular Hector, as it will get new headlamps, different grille design and an updated rear bumper.

On the inside, the big change will be the new seating configuration which will now consist of three rows with individual captain seats in the middle. The other change would be the use of tan brown leatherette upholstery inside the cabin as opposed to the all-black cabin that the Hector gets.

In terms of features, the Hector Plus Sharp gets LED headlamps with LED DRLs, LED taillamps, LED foglamps front and rear, 16-inch dual tone alloys, leatherette upholstery, 6-way power adjustable driver’s seat, 8-colour ambient lighting, a 7-inch MID, powered boot opening, heated ORVMs, a 10.4-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, Infinity audio system and a panoramic sunroof. The Hector Plus also comes with MG’s i-Smart connected car technology which includes over 55 features such as geofencing, find my car, remote vehicle control and voice assistant.

Safety-wise, top-spec Sharp variants come with six airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist, ESC, traction control, tyre pressure monitoring system, hill-hold assist, a 360-degree parking camera and front and rear parking sensors.

MG has also equipped the Hector Plus with new Smoked Sepia brown leather upholstery, which is different from the normal Hector’s all-black scheme. The Hector Plus will be offered in six colour options – Starry sky blue, Glaze red, Burgundy red, Starry black, Candy white and Aurora silver.

Buyers will have the option of choosing between a 170hp/350Nm, 2.0-litre diesel engine mated to a 6-speed manual, a 143hp/250Nm, 1.5-litre turbo-petrol motor with a 6-speed dual-clutch auto or a 143hp/250Nm, 1.5-litre petrol with a 48V mild-hybrid system coupled with a 6-speed manual.
