Prices of the Hector have been increased by up to Rs 44,000. The base-spec Sharp petrol variant has been the least affected. 


The main update on the outside comes in the form of larger 18-inch dual-tone alloy wheels which give it a better stance than the outgoing model’s 17-inch units. The gaudy red strip connecting the tail lamps has been replaced by a gloss black trim. It now comes with the chrome-studded grille from the Hector Plus. 


While the dashboard layout remains unchanged, it gets a black-creme dual-tone colour scheme, instead of the older all-black. The lighter colours give it an airier and more premium feel. 


It gets new features such as ventilated front seats, a wireless phone charger, auto-dimming IRVM, and Hinglish commands for the connected car tech. The 10.4-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Infinity sound system, panoramic sunroof, cruise control, automatic climate control, powered driver’s seat, and ambient lighting have been retained. Safety is taken care of by six airbags, ABS with EBD, parking sensors, a 360-degree camera, and electronic stability control. 


No changes have been made under the hood. It continues to utilise the 170PS 2.0-litre diesel engine and the 143PS 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine. A 6-speed manual transmission is offered as standard while the petrol motor can be specced with a dual-clutch automatic. The turbo-petrol manual engine comes with the option of a 48v mild-hybrid system. 

The facelifted Hector rekindles its rivalry with the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Tata Harrier, and Mahindra XUV500.
