A Refreshed & Three-Row MG Hector Is In The Making

  • Oct 07, 2019

The MG Hector has been making waves ever since its inception. However, something that bugged every single automobile enthusiasts was the unavailability of a three-row Hector despite the large dimensions and space inside the SUV. The automaker seems to have addressed the issue and should be revealing the three-row version of the MG Hector in the early part of 2020. Interestingly enough, it will not just be the addition of another row inside the SUV that will be the major change. Instead, the automaker has also decided to give the SUV a subtle makeover for the three-row version, as seen in the spy shots.

Speaking of the reworked MG Hector, the Indian-spec SUV is reminiscent of the Baojun 530. The Chinese cousin of the MG Hector is 40mm longer than the five-seater Hector and similar could be the case with the six-seater Hector. The changes on the three-row MG Hector include revamped LED day time running lights, redesigned honeycomb grille, faux dual-exhaust outlets, and a pair of refreshed tail lamps.

On the inside, the updated MG Hector is expected to carry forward the same set of features, tech, and creature comforts as the current model including the popular 10.4-inch vertically stacked touchscreen infotainment system and a panoramic sunroof, albeit with an additional row at the back. Another change will be in the form of a pair of captain seats in the second row instead of a bench. Also, the SUV should come sporting a brand new interior colour scheme.

Moving on to the mechanicals, the refreshed MG Hector will be powered by a set of BS6 compliant powertrains. The first of the lot will be a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol unit. The other two mills will comprise of a 2.0-litre diesel engine and the same 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol unit with a 48V mild-hybrid system. Once launched in India, the six-seater MG Hector will lock horns with the likes of the upcoming three-row Tata Harrier and the next-generation Mahindra XUV500.
