MG Hector Plus Series Production Begins; Slated For July Launch


The Hector Plus was unveiled at the 2020 Auto Expo with an extra row of seats and cosmetic upgrades over the Hector.

  • The Hector Plus will be powered by the same set of engines as the standard Hector.

  • The 6-seater MPV will be offered with captain seats in the middle row.

  • It will take on the likes of the Mahindra XUV500 and the upcoming Tata Gravitas.

 

First unveiled at Auto Expo 2020, the Hector Plus is MG’s answer to three-row SUVs like the Mahindra XUV500 and the upcoming Tata Gravitas. The British carmaker has now announced that it has commenced series production of the Hector Plus at its Halol plant in Gujarat and is slated to be launched in July.

 

As the name suggests, the Hector Plus is based on MG’s debut offering in India, the Hector. The new SUV features redesigned exterior elements such as a revised front grille, LED headlights, front and rear bumpers, and rear skid plate. The MPV also gets a cleaner look with the removal of unnecessary quirky bits and chrome elements.  

 

On the inside, the Hector Plus will feature captain seats in the middle row with the addition of a third row of seats for added space and comfort. The car will come with a 10.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a panoramic sunroof, climate control, ambient lighting, Infinity sound system, and cruise control. In terms of safety, it will fetaure six airbags, rear parking camera with sensors, and ABS with EBD.

 

Powering the MPV will be the Hector’s engine options: a 2.0-litre BS6 diesel and a 1.5-litre BS6 petrol. The former produces 170PS and the latter puts out 143PS with the option of a 48V mild-hybrid setup which adds features like torque assist and idle start-stop function. A 6-speed manual transmission will be offered as standard with both engines while the petrol-only model will also get an automatic variant.

 

The Hector Plus, MG’s third offering in India after the Hector and ZS EV, will go on sale in July 2020. It will be followed by the Gloster full-size, body-on-frame SUV and the G10 premium MPV, both of which are expected in 2020. The MPV will lock horns with the likes of the Toyota Innova Crysta.
