MG Hector Plus: Where Style Meets Space
With the Hector Plus, MG has ended your search for a stylish SUV that doesn’t leave you wanting more
4 – that’s the average number of members an Indian household has. But as any Indian car owner would attest to, that number doesn’t factor in periodic fluctuations, ala ferrying relatives, taking your kid(s) and their friends for short drives, or yearly pilgrimage runs with your spouse, kid(s), and parents.
Which begs the question – how does one balance the need for occasionally lugging people and their luggage with the desire to own a stylish, luxurious, tech-laden, feature-rich, ultra-safe, and environment-friendly vehicle?
Say hello to the MG Hector Plus SUV.
Unmistakable SUV Style
You’d be forgiven for thinking the Hector Plus might not be an SUV since it seats six people in comfort. That’s because MG has cloaked the additional space in a design that is unmistakably SUV. Building upon the strong foundation laid down by the Hector, the Hector Plus includes several design elements that help it stand out from the crowd.
The new, reworked grille of the Hector Plus has muscle written all over it while the modified bumpers, bigger LED DRLs, dual exhaust units, and roof rails further cement its SUV credentials. MG has also ensured the Hector Plus walks the SUV talk by offering front and rear skid plates and side body cladding finish as standard. While the former protects the Hector Plus’s underside when you venture off the road, the latter guards the SUV’s doors from scratches and dings.
The Hector Plus is also among the longest in its segment at 4720mm while being as tall and wide as the Hector, giving it an imposing presence whether it’s standing still or bustling along. And thanks to a high ground clearance, you can ride roughshod over the most broken roads without a hint of discomfort to any of the six people sitting inside.
Unimpeachable MPV Space
The Hector Plus’ ample exterior dimensions are complemented well by a large and well-appointed cabin space that can put many an MPV to shame. The star of the show, however, is the pair of captain seats occupying the SUV’s second row. Available in a smoked sepia brown leather upholstery option, the captain seats offer unbridled comfort while keeping fatigue at bay with their adjustable legroom, recline function, and individual armrests.
And unlike many MPVs, the Hector Plus’s third row is no gimmick as it gets dedicated AC vents and USB ports to keep occupants comfortable on long drives. Enhancing the Hector Plus’s spacious cabin is an equally large and wide glass area, which lets in plenty of light and dials up the sense of roominess by a few notches.
The MG Hector Plus rolls up its shirt sleeves precisely where run-of-the-mill MPVs call it quits. It seats six people in absolute comfort, gets connected car technology, is powered by sprightly diesel and petrol engines, offers rich interiors loaded with features – all housed in a muscular yet elegant SUV design. In other words, the MG Hector Plus ensures that ferrying a couple of more people over the average Indian household size does not affect your driving pleasure.
But what makes it a truly unbeatable proposition is the wide dealer network that the British brand has set up across India, making it the perfect family car no matter where you are.
