The Hector Plus is not very different from the popular Hector SUV from the MG Motor India stable. While the Hector, an “Internet Inside” vehicle has caught the fancy of lot of Indians, of late however, its image has got a minor dent thanks to the silly call to “boycott Chinese products”.Even sillier is the fact that some people call MG Motor India products “Chinese products”. To set the record straight, MG Motor India has a British lineage through UK based Morris Garages, has the backing of China’s largest auto company SAIC and operates completely as an Indian company.
It has its own manufacturing plant in Halol in Gujarat and empowers almost an equal number of Indian men and women at its plant. It has its own corporate office in Gurugram in North India. That, I guess makes the company 100 per cent Indian.
Compared to the Hector, the Hector Plus is as tall and as wide and even has a similar wheelbase. But what has changed is the length of the vehicle. The Plus is 65mm more than the Hector and this is because of the changes in the front bumper. A lot of chrome that surrounded the grille area and the headlamp cluster etc has been done away with. Instead, the Hector Plus gets a chrome studded front grille now. Then there are now stylish new headlamps, new front and rear bumpers, new rear tail light design, and revised skid plates.
The new Hector Plus has floating light turn indicators, LED headlamps, LED DRLs, LED front and rear fog lamps, LED tail lamps, turn indicators on ORVMs. It also has heated ORVMs, auto headlamps, rain sensing wipers and shark fin antenna. Thus, despite the vehicle have a 65mm extension, it still looks elegant and smart. It stands tall on 215/60 R 17 alloy wheels.
