Also, images of its three-row version at dealerships have emerged, indicating that the cars are being dispatched prior to the launch.
It was unveiled at the Auto Expo 2020 and was supposed to be launched earlier, but was delayed due to the COVID-19 lockdown.
The MG Hector Plus will be based on the same frame as the Hector SUV but will sport minor cosmetic updates especially at the front.
The car will get a glossy black grille, flanked by new LED DRLs, headlamps, bumpers, and refreshed skid plates.
On the sides, it will feature roof rails, blacked-out B-pillars, body-colored ORVMs, and alloy wheels.
Hector Plus will get two BS6-compliant engines- a Fiat-sourced 2.0-liter diesel and an in-house developed 1.5-liter mild-hybrid petrol. Both the powertrains will come mated to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, while a dual-clutch automatic transmission will be optional on the petrol variant.
MG Hector Plus will get a six/seven-seater cabin with tan faux leather upholstery, beige headliner, rear AC vents, a revised dashboard, and a power steering wheel.
For connectivity, the car will pack a 10.4-inch touchscreen infotainment panel with connected car technology to receive OTA updates.
Further, six airbags, ABS with EBD, Follow Me Home headlamps, and a 360-degree view camera are expected.
The details about the pricing of the MG Hector Plus SUV will be announced at the launch event in July. However, it is likely to carry a significant premium over the Hector, which starts at Rs. 12.74 lakh and goes up to Rs. 17.73 lakh.
