MG launched the three-row Hector back in July in its six-seater avatar. The seven-seat version was always expected to follow, and now the automaker has confirmed its launch in January 2021. This seven-seater will be the latest addition to the British brand's lineup in January. The biggest difference between this new model and the three-row, six-seat Hector Plus, is that the seven-seat version will have a bench instead of the captain's seats in the second row. Also, expect some cosmetic changes inside and out to differentiate the six-seat and seven-seat versions of Hector Plus. The Hector Plus 7-seater in Nepal is expected to go on sale in summer 2021.
Talking about the features this Hector will have the same feature set as the regular Hector. Engine and gearbox options are also expected to be shared between two versions of the Hector Plus. Powertrain and transmission options on MG Hector Plus include a 1.5-liter turbo petrol (143ps and 250nm) with a 6-speed MT and 6-speed DCT, and a 1.5-liter turbo-petrol hybrid (143ps and 250nm) with a 6-speed MT and 2.0-liter turbo diesel (170ps and 35nm) with a 6-speed MT. MG Hector Plus is available in four variants - Style, Super, Smart, and Sharp. Just like the 6-seater model, the premium 7-seater Hector could feature tan upholstery.
Apart from the addition of a bench-seat variant, the Hector Plus will remain unchanged. The standard Hector features a panoramic sunroof, 10.4-inch vertical touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, MG’s in-car connectivity tech, an Infinity audio system, ambient lighting, a hands-free boot opening function, powered front seats, heated wing mirrors, front and rear parking sensors, up to six airbags and a 360-degree camera. There is also a powered tailgate and LED headlamps with LED DRLs, LED fog lamps, and LED tail lamps.
