MG Motors India has been working on a 6-seater version of Hector SUV with three rows of seating configuration. The 6-seater SUV was spied testing for the first time, just a few days back by the our friends at AutoCar India. Although details are scarce at the moment but it is going to be different from the standard Hector. MG Hector 6-seater will take on the likes of Mahindra XUV500, Tata Buzzard and Creta 7-seater which is launching by mid 2020.
 
 
Going by the spy-shots, the 6-seater MG Hector will flaunt split-LED daytime running lights instead of the single unit LED DRLs that come with the standard SUV. It will also get a new honeycomb front grille which is bigger than the one on regular Hector. The headlamp cluster is also restyled as it now houses turn indicators and chrome strip. Interestingly, the 6-seater version will resemble the China-spec Baojun 530 with several elements common as compared to the Hector. The rear end will boast of a new tail-lamp cluster with clear lens inserts, tweaked bumper and faux dual exhaust tips.
 
 
The cabin will be equipped with captain seats in the second row in place of bench row in the 5-seater Hector. In addition, the upholstery color could also be different while getting the same features as the standard model. The prominent features could be the 10.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with connectivity suite, panoramic sunroof and 6-airbags. Mechanically, it will be available with the same set of petrol and diesel engines as the ongoing model, albeit with BS 6 compliant emission levels. The petrol variants will draw power from a 143bhp 1.5L turbo engine while the diesel variants will continue to get the 170bhp 2.0L motor. Speculations are rife that a 48V mild-hybrid variant with turbo petrol mill could also be introduced.
