MG Hector Facelift Expected Specs

In terms of engine options, the new Hector is likely to come with the same 1.5L turbo petrol and 2.0L turbo diesel powertrains as the current model. The 1.5L turbo petrol is likely to retain its manual and CVT-automatic options. Currently, the MG Hector with the 2.0L diesel engine only gets a 6-speed manual transmission. We do not expect MG to offer the Hector facelift with a diesel-automatic option any time soon. However, its rivals, such as the Tata Harrier, Mahindra XUV700 and Jeep Compass, offer the choice of a diesel-automatic powertrain.

MG Hector Facelift Rivals

MG Hector is a D1-segment SUV and its facelift will continue to rival other SUVs in the class like the Mahindra XUV700, Hyundai Alcazar, Toyota Innova Hycross and Tata Harrier.
