2021 MG Hector, 7 Seat Hector Plus Launched From Rs. 12.89 Lakh


2021 MG Hector gets subtle visual tweaks and addition of new features; powertrain options remain the same

MG Motor India has certainly made a name for itself in a short span of time with its Hector. The five-seater entered the domestic market with much anticipation back in June 2019. Capitalising on the good initial reception, the British manufacturer expanded its reach across India quickly while bringing in new products like the ZS EV, Hector Plus six-seater and Gloster full-sized SUV.

To grab the headlines in the opening stages of the new calendar year, the SAIC-owned brand has today launched the facelifted version of the Hector and is priced between Rs. 12.89 lakh and Rs. 19.12 lakh (ex-showroom). The SUV’s range was expanded last year with the inclusion of the Plus variant offering a middle row captain seat arrangement and now the fully-fledged seven-seater has joined the bandwagon.
