The reason behind this is that MG is already working on launching the Hector facelift. It is expected that the changes to the Hector facelift will be carried forward to the Hector Plus as well. Moreover, the manufacturer has announced that they will be launching a compact electric vehicle in the Indian market next year. In fact, testing of both vehicles has already started and several test mules have been spotted on Indian roads.

Now, coming back to the 2023 Astor and ZS EV. The model sold in Thailand looks radically different from the one on sale in the Indian market. It gets an entirely new front-end design. The headlamps are sleeker and the LED Daytime Running Lamps are also new. The grille is also redesigned with a diamond pattern and it seems like there are new air intakes as well. On the sides, there are new alloy wheels and the rear stays more or less the same. The new design has helped the vehicle look more like a SUV instead of a crossover.
