As for styling, there are subtle yet noticeable changes compared with the 5-seater Hector. The front fascia has a larger grille flanked by new LED running lights, and a restyled bumper with new LED headlights. The side profile remains largely similar in terms of the styling, while at the rear, there are new LED taillights and a restyled bumper with fake exhaust outlets. Unlike the regular Hector, there’s no connecting bar between the taillights, which makes the tailgate design look a lot cleaner. The 17-inch alloy wheels are the same.

Inside, the dashboard is the same as the other Hector, obviously. However, for the second row, there are captain seats with sliding and reclining functions. The third row gets its own AC vents with fan speed control. The rest of the features have been carried over from the 5-seater Hector, including the portrait-style 10.4-inch touchscreen, 8-speaker Infinity audio system, 7-inch color MID, 6-way power-adjustable driver seat, and 8-color ambient lighting.

Safety features would include 6 airbags, ABS+EBD+Brake Assist, ESP, Traction Control, TPMS, rear defogger, and 360-degree camera system. Download the brochure here.


Moving on to the business end of the story, the Hector Plus borrows the powertrains from its 5-seater sibling. The 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine offers 143 hp at 5,000 rpm and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque between 1,600-3,600 rpm, and is paired with a 6-speed DCT. The same petrol engine is also available in combination with a mild-hybrid system and 6-speed MT.

The diesel engine is the same Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre (1,956 cc) turbocharged unit that develops 170 hp at 3,750 rpm and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque between 1,750-2,500 rpm. The engine is paired with a 6-speed MT driving the front wheels.
