We have reported earlier that MG Motor India is planning to bring the 6-seater version of the Hector SUV. In fact, the vehicle has been caught testing multiple times in the country. The MG Hector 6-seater will essentially be the re-badged Baojun 530 (updated version) that was unveiled in September 2019 for the Chinese market.
According to a fresh media report, the new MG Hector 6-seater SUV will have a different nameplate and will be positioned as premium offering in India. The SUV will carry some unique design bits such as a slightly tweaked front grille with honeycomb inserts, newly-designed headlamps and LED DLRs, new alloy wheels, revised rear bumper and taillamps and faux dual exhaust system.
Major change will be made inside the cabin. The new MG Hector 6-seater SUV will have an additional third-row seat for accommodating more occupants. The soft-touch material and faux brushed aluminum trimming will give it a premium touch. Read – MG Motor to Launch 3 New SUVs in India by July 2021
