The video and the images have been uploaded by autogram07. The video shows a camouflaged SUV stopped at a traffic signal. The video then zooms into the rear seat of the car which reveals captain seats. The pictures that are uploaded in the social media post show images of the front and the rear seats.
At the front, main difference that one would notice is the LED DRLs. The position for the lights remain same but the design of the LEDs inside are different from the one found in Hector. The grille has also gone through some changes and is now bigger than the Hector. The bumper of the test car is covered which means MG might have redesigned the bumper as well. The headlights are partially visible and the chrome garnish around the headlight also looks different.
Coming to the side, it looks similar to the 5-seater Hector SUV and it also gets the connected features as the left panel says ‘Internet Inside’. Moving to the rear seats the noticeable change is the captain seats. Third row of seats are visible in the images. Dimension-wise it is not known if the 6-seater Hector will be longer or will it be of the same size as that of Hector. Earlier in a spy pic released by Autocar India, it had shown that the design for the tail light is also going to be a bit different.
Talking about the engine, Hector is currently powered by a 1.5L turbo petrol and a 2.0L turbocharged diesel engine. The 6-seater Hector is also likely to get same engine combination may be at a different state of tune. When launched, MG Hector 6-seater’s main competition will be in the form of Tata Gravitas which the 7-seater version of Tata Harrier.
