2023 MG Hector Plus Facelift Spotted
The SUV's second row, which has two captain chairs and a folded third row, is visible in the recently discovered image. It is obvious from the photos that the vehicle is a Hector Plus SUV mule because the third row seatbelts are clearly visible in them. The exterior of the SUV was covered in heavy camouflage but the alloy wheel design was evident and looks similar to the previous generation model. On the exterior we can expect the same changes as the 5-seater variant which includes a new grille and heavy chrome. The rear profile is also expected to get few changes to make the SUV fresh.
The inside of the SUV was completely covered, only the three-spoke steering wheel and controls mounted to the steering wheel was visible. However, if we discuss the interior features in light of prior speculations and brand-released teasers, we can anticipate a new touchscreen infotainment system, new air conditioning vents, and a redesigned dashboard. Additionally, ADAS, a sizable panoramic sunroof, automated climate control, and over-the-air upgrades will be included in the feature list.
