The Hector Plus in this six-seater iteration will be available in the top four Hector variants:Â Super, Smart, Sharp.Â The interiors of the Hector Plus haven been updated with a more advanced i-Smart infotainment and connected-car features and tan leather upholstery.

The MG Hector Plus is also differentiated by reworked exterior styling.Â Â There is a larger grille, new headlamp design and DRLs, and revised skid plates. In profile, the SUV now has a stretched-out glass element around the C-Pillar. The rear rounds things off with a new bumper and tail lamps. A new shade of blue has been added to bring the paint options to six.
The MG Hector Plus can be had with three engine options, like the standard Hector.Â This means one petrol will be a 1.5 litre turbocharged unit with 143PS and 250Nm while the other will add a 48V mild-hybrid system to the mix. This will allow for it to feature a start-stop system, regenerative braking and add torque fill functionality.Â The diesel engine will be the 2.0-litre FCA Multijet unit as seen on the Jeep Compass and Tata Harrier.Â The Hector will get it in the 173PS and 350Nm guise. Gearbox options are a six-speed manual and DCT (petrol only). The diesel will come in theÂ Super, Smart and Sharp trims, the petrol will come in Smart and Sharp variants while the hybrid will get a single Sharp trim.
The introductory prices of the Hector will be in effect till August 13. It should also be noted that the Style version will be produced on order and will not be a part of the regular line-up. MG Motor India has also introduced the MG Shiled+ customer service package. This adds specific sanitisation and contact-less facilities to the MG Shield service and warranty packages.
