The upcoming MG Hector SUV for India will come with both petrol and diesel engine options. The 2.0-litre diesel engine will be the same unit that powers the Jeep Compass and will have a power output of 170 bhp. On the other hand, there will be a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine on offer with an output of 150 bhp. The SUV will offer a manual transmission for both petrol and diesel engines but the former will come with a six-speed DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) as well.

In terms of size, the MG Hector will not disappoint as it will be even bigger than the present generation Honda CR-V. As far as prices are concerned, Express Drives was the first one to report that the Hector will be priced under Rs 20 lakh, that too for the top variant that will have all the bells and whistles. The Hector will rival the likes of Jeep Compass, Hyundai Tucson and top variants of the Hyundai Creta.
