    The MG Hector Plus with the 1.5-litre hybrid turbo petrol engine will get a 6-speed manual transmission and has a claimed fuel efficiency figure of 14.03kmpl. The Hector Plus with turbo petrol and 6-speed DCT automatic transmission returns a mileage fo 11.67kmpl. The 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine has an official fuel efficiency rating of 16.56kmpl.

    The MG Hector Plus 2020 is expected to go on sale in July 2020 and will naturally command a higher asking price over the regular Hector. Besides a different and toned-down styling, the Hector Plus has a longer body to accommodate an extra row of seats. There’s definitely going to be a 6-seat version of the Hector Plus with captain chairs in the second row. We believe that this will be the only seating arrangement and the Hector Plus may not get a 7-seat option with a bench in the middle row.

    The Hector Plus will go up against the other 7-seat D1 segment SUVs like Mahindra XUV500. The Tata Gravitas, which is the 3-row version of the Tata Harrier will also soon join the list of Hector Plus’ opponents. Besides the SUVs, the MG is also reportedly targetting the individual MPV buyers who need a 6/7-seat personal vehicle. That makes it a rival for the Mahindra Marazzo and Toyota Innova Crysta. The MG Hector Plus offers a stronger road presence than these MPVs, which should work in its favour as these cars tend to carry a taxi image with them.
