Six-seat MG Hector Spotted Testing with Unique Styling Elements
After a successful launch of MG Hector, five-seat, the British automotive will now introduce the six-seat variant for the same. The vehicle spotted testing tells a lot about the upcoming variant. It will sport three-row seats along with some styling details that promise to be exclusive to the six-seat derivative of the Hector.
The difference on the outer side of the vehicle can be easily spotted as it looks a lot different from the five-seat MG Hector. The first difference appears in the presence of split-LED daytime running lights followed by a new honeycomb grille with a bit different shape and even larger area consumption. The six-seat will come equipped with a redesigned headlamp cluster that houses turn indicators and a chrome strip. Even the face of this vehicle will look different from the five-seat variant as the MG Hector’s six-seat variant looks a lot like the updated China-spec Baojun 530. Another thing to notice will be the tail-lamps with clear-lens inserts and a redesigned rear bumper with faux dual-exhaust tips.
As far as the six-seat Hector’s interiors are concerned, the captain’s seats are set to replace the second-row bench seat and there are chances of MG offering a different interior colour scheme. The features of the vehicle remain the same as the five-seat MG Hector with additions like a 10.4-inch portrait-oriented touchscreen infotainment system and numerous in-car connectivity features, a massive panoramic sunroof and six airbags.
Under the hood, MG Hector’s six-seat variant will be available with a 1.5-litre turbo petrol producing 143hp, 2.0-litre diesel generating 170hp, and a 48V mild-hybrid version of the turbo-petrol engine. All the engine options will be BSVI-compliant and will be available for purchase in the mid-half of 2020.
