MG Motor India today launched the MG HECTOR PLUS at an inaugural price of INR 13.48 Lakhs (ex-showroom, New Delhi) which will remain valid till 13th August. The price will increase by up to INR 50,000 thereafter depending on the trim level. The HECTOR PLUS can be booked at any MG Dealership, on its website www.mgmotor.co.in, or via the My MG Mobile App.
HECTOR PLUS is 6-seater internet SUV with panoramic sunroof. It will be manufactured at the carmaker’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at Halol near Vadodara in Gujarat.
The MG Hector Plus comes in three powertrains – 1.5-litre petrol, 1.5-litre petrol hybrid and 2.0-litre diesel engine. The 1451cc petrol and petrol-hybrid variants can deliver maximum output of 141 bhp and can offer maximum of 250 Nm torque. They are mated with a 6-speed manual gearbox and an optional DCT automatic (petrol only). The 1965cc diesel engine variant is claimed to deliver 170 bhp and 350 Nm of peak torque and is mated with the 6-speed manual gearbox.
The six seater HECTOR PLUS comes with luxurious and comfortable captain seats in the middle row. The 6-seater SUV has dual-tone Smoked Sepia Brown interiors, stylish new headlamps, a new Chrome-Studded Front Grille, and a Chit-Chat feature on i-SMART Next Gen interface. It also comes with other attractive features including the all-new Smart Swipe, Front and Rear Bumpers, New Rear Tail Light Design, and Revised Skid Plates.
Like MG Hector, MG Motor India has also assured its customers of the resale value of their HECTOR PLUS. The carmaker has tied up with CarDekho for the same. The latter will buyback MG HECTOR PLUS at a residual value of 60% after three years of ownership under the “3-60” plan, which customers can purchase at a very compelling price as stated by the company.
MG HECTOR PLUS offers both MG Shield and the MG Shield+ to provide an assuring experience to its customers. Under MG Shield, MG extends the Free-three ‘5s’, i.e. 5-year/Unlimited KMs warranty, 5-year Roadside Assistance, and Free Labour Charges for the first 5 services. All these elements under ‘MG Shield’ are aimed at enhancing the MG ownership experience and providing complete peace of mind to MG customers. The 6-seater SUV’s Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is among the lowest in the segment. It is 45 paise per kilometer for its petrol variants and 60 paise per kilometer for the diesel ones (calculated up to 100,000 KMs of usage). MG HECTOR PLUS further offers the best prepaid maintenance plans starting at INR 8,000 for 3 years with its Classic package, as stated by the company.
