MG (Morris Garages) is a British Automotive Company that entered India in 2019 with an Suv called the Hector and is now all set to launch its new car Hector plus in February 2020 at the 2020AutoExpo. The Hector Plus will be an upgraded 6- seater variant of the MG Hector.
The car has already been spotted testing on the roads and the spy pictures reveal revised grille design, revamped headlamps, tail lamps, bumpers, dual-tone alloy wheels and LED DRLs.
The interesting aspect of this SUV is that it’s the first Hector in India to be offered with a third row of seats. Further, the middle row now comes with individual captain seats instead of the bench seat along with many comfort goodies and features like the i-SMART connected car technology, a 10.4-inch infotainment system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, panoramic sunroof, cruise control, a colored multi-info display as well as keyless entry with push-button start.
The SUV will have 1.5L turbo petrol, a 1.5L petrol with 48V mild hybrid setup and a 2.0L diesel powertrain options, similar to that of the previous model, except that the MG Hector Plus will be in accordance with the BS6 emission norms. The car will also have a 6-speed manual and a DTC automatic gearbox.
The SUV that would be a rival to the Mahindra XUV500 and TATA Gravitas is estimated to be priced at a premium of Rs 1 lakh over the standard model, which starts from Rs 12.48 lakh.
