  • MG Hector six-seat, the three-row version being developed.
  • It will be named differently.
  • MG Hector's six-seater will rival the Tata Gravitas and Mahindra XUV 500.
  • It will look slightly different from the Hector and be positioned as a different product.
  • It will be launched by the end of the first quarter of 2020.

MG’s Hector has a three-row, six-seat version being developed. But just like Tata has renamed the three-row Harrier ‘Gravitas’, MG will also rebrand the larger Hector and position it as a more premium product to the Hector.

The upcoming SUV from MG will also look slightly different from the Hector – its styling will be based on the Baojun 530 from the Chinese market. That means compared to the Hector it will have a different front look, with a grille with honeycomb inserts, different lamps (both LED DRLs and headlamps), and a restyled front bumper. At the rear, it will have a different bumper, dual exhausts, and slightly different tail lamps.

The interior of the six-seat MG Hector will carry forward all the good elements from the Hector, including the brushed aluminum finishes, the soft-touch plastics, the 10.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and the panoramic sunroof. It will be powered by the same engines as the current Hector. The lineup will thus consist of a 2-litre diesel, 1.5-litre turbo petrol, and 1.5-litre turbo petrol with a 48V mild hybrid system.

The six-seat/ three-row MG Hector is expected to launch at the end of the first quarter of 2020, with deliveries to begin in April. It will compete with the Tata Gravitas, the upcoming Mahindra XUV 500, and the three-row version of the upcoming Hyundai Creta as well.
