MG Motors launched their latest model Hector Plus in the market earlier today. The Hector was the first product from the manufacturer and was a huge success. It is now a very common sight on our roads and MG wants to replicate that success with their third product. MG Hector had initially unveiled the Hector Plus at the Auto Expo earlier this year. It is now officially launched at an introductory price of Rs 13.49 lakh, ex-showroom. MG has already started accepting bookings and the car was recently spotted on road for the first time without any camouflage after the launch.
The video has been uploaded by Dr Shani’s Kitchen youtube channel. The Hector Plus was spotted in Kerala probably on its way to a dealership. The video shows the whole car inside out in a walkaround. Starting from the front, the grille has grown in size in comparison to the regular Hector. The LED DRLs get an updated design and so does the front bumper. The turn indicators are now placed on the lower part of the bumper along with headlights. The headlights also get a new design from the inside.
The length of the Hector Plus has increased slightly but that has nothing to do with the wheelbase. The wheelbase remains the same as the regular Hector and the Hector Plus is only longer because of its new revised bumper. The video also gives a glimpse of the interiors which are tan in colour. The main highlight here is the captain seats in second row and the third row seat. The interiors look premium and the cabin looks plush with the huge touchscreen infotainment screen.
The Hector Plus offers other features like panoramic sunroof, multi function steering wheel, electrically adjustable seats and so on. The video also shows the rear of the Hector Plus which reveals the new LED tail light, MG Hector Plus badging and the hybrid badge. The Hector Plus is available with a 2.0 litre turbo diesel, a 1.5 litre turbo petrol and a 1.5 litre turbo petrol Hybrid engine. Only the turbo petrol non-hybrid version gets a DCT gearbox and all the other variants get a manual gearbox. Price for MG Hector Plus now starts at Rs 13.49 lakh, ex-showroom and goes up to Rs 18.54 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi.
