On the outside, there are some changes. The Plus is just a tad bit longer by 65 mm owing to new bumpers both at the front and the back. There is a new grille and new headlamp design. The DRLs also get tweaked around as do the tail lights.

The biggest difference however, is the addition of the third row of seats. The Hector Plus gets a 2+2+2 seating configuration. There are captain seats in the middle row for more comfort while the two seats at the rear, the company says, can comfortably seat two children, making the Hector Plus a comfortable family car.
