  • MG Hector's three-row version will probably be called ‘Hector Plus’.

  • It will come with captain seats in the middle row.

  • MG Hector Plus will have the same dimensions and powertrains as the current Hector.

  • It will have slightly different styling to distinguish it from the five-seater Hector.

The three-row version of the MG Hector has been spotted testing. MG recently applied for a trademark for the name Hector Plus, which suggests that this is probably the name; three-row Hector is going to have in the Indian market. It is scheduled for a launch at the Delhi Auto Expo next month.

The Hector Plus will accommodate all three rows within the same exterior dimensions as the five-seat Hector. However, the styling has been changed to differentiate it from its smaller and no doubt more affordable sibling. It gets a new front end in which the design of the LED DRLs, the headlamp cluster, and the grille have all been updated. In addition, the bumpers both front and rear have slightly different styling.

The tail lamps have also been redesigned so that it doesn’t get mistaken for the other Hector even from that angle.

Inside, the Hector Plus will look quite similar to the regular Hector. It will get the same 10.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, the same colour combination and the same materials for the upholstery and dashboard, and it will also get the same drivelines. That is 1.5-litre turbo petrol and 2-litre turbocharged diesel engine. However, both engines will be BS6 compliant from the day of the launch. MG will not launch the Hector with any form of hybrid or electric powertrains; it will keep it as it is. The current Hector has a 48V mild hybrid system.

Expect the price of the Hector Plus to be significantly more than the current Hector because along with the captain seats and the third row it also gets the updated BS Vl engines. Details for the Hector Plus will be revealed fully during the New Delhi Auto Expo next month. The Hector Plus will compete with other 3 row cars in its segments like the Tata Gravitas, the current as well as upcoming Mahindra XUV500, and the upcoming Hyundai Creta
