MG Hector Variants In Details — Which Is The Best Variant From The Lot?

MG Motors launched the Hector SUV in the Indian market recently. The mid-size SUV from the British brand in the Indian market is offered with a price tag of Rs 12.18 lakh while the top-spec variant comes priced at Rs 16.88 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom (India).

The MG Hector has already received a good response in the Indian market, with the brand recording over 10,000 bookings within 23 days. The MG Hector is offered with a host of features, many of them are best-in-class and/or segment-firsts.

The MG Hector is available in a range of four variants: Style, Super, Smart & Sharp. Each of them come loaded with features and equipment. However, before we got into each variant and the list of features, let's first look into the technical specifications of the MG Hector — here are the top things to know about the MG Hector.

The MG Hector is available with a choice of two engines: 1.5-litre turbo-petrol and 2.0-litre diesel. The turbo-petrol engine churns out 143bhp and 250Nm of torque and is mated to either a six-speed manual or DCT gearbox. MG also offers the petrol variant with a 48V hybrid motor as well.

In terms of diesel, the MG Hector borrows the engine from the Jeep Compass. The 2.0-litre (FCA-sourced) diesel unit produces the same power and torque output of 173bhp and 350Nm of torque. The diesel unit is mated to a standard six-speed manual, without the choice of an automatic transmission.

We got a chance to drive both the petrol and diesel engine options on the MG Hector recently — here is our detailed review of the latest mid-size SUV in the Indian market.

Thoughts On The MG Hector Variants

The MG Hector is offered with a range of features on every variant. It is priced competitively in the market, rivaling the likes of the Tata Harrier, Jeep Compass, Mahindra XUV500, Nissan Kicks and the upcoming Kia Seltos. Among the four variants available on the MG Hector, we recommend the top-spec diesel trim. This variant provides the perfect balance between performance and handling while also being feature-packed; making it a good value-for-money proposition.
