Visually, the Hector Plus looks a bit classier and more premium thanks to the updated face, with no over the top chrome elements. Upfront, you have the all-black grille, flanked by new LED daytime running lamps, and a set of revised headlights with LED projector units and integrated turn indicators. The front bumper is also new and comes with a smaller faux skid plate. The profile remains identical to the regular Hector, in fact, it even gets the same 17-inch dual-tone alloy wheels, which still look a tad too small on the SUV. The Hector Plus also gets silver roof rails, a shark-fin antenna, revised LED taillamps, and a new rear bumper with underbody cladding and a faux diffuser with chrome elements.
The seats are draped in smoked sepia brown leather upholstery, with matching leather pads for the doors and the dashboard.
