MG Hector Plus production begins

MG has commenced production of the Hector Plus SUV in India.

The Hector Plus is based on the regular Hector. It is expected to be offered in 6 or 7-seat configuration with captain seats in the second row.

The Hector Plus looks similar to the 5-seater version. However, it does get minor updates to the grille and headlamp clusters. At the rear, instead of a light bar between the two tail lamp clusters, the Hector Plus gets a chrome strip. It also gets fake chrome exhausts.

The Hector Plus is expected to be powered by a 2.0-litre diesel that makes 168 BHP and 350 Nm. The engine could be paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox. It could also get a 1.5-litre, turbo-petrol engine mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed DCT as well as a 1.5-litre mild-hybrid powertrain.
