A longer wheelbase often results in more cabin space. A larger boot allows you to carry more luggage.

    Is the Hyundai Tucson better than the MG Hector Plus?

    Price of the base variant of Hyundai Tucson is Rs. 22.30 lakh and MG Hector Plus is Rs. 13.49 lakh (both ex-showroom). The MG Hector Plus is much cheaper than the Tucson 2020.

    In terms of dimensions, Hector Plus is a much larger car compared to the Tucson. So, it’ll have a far better road presence than the Tucson.

    For petrol automatic powertrain, Hector's engine offers more torque, so it is expected to offer better driveability compared to Tucson's engine. With the diesel engine, the Tucson has better torque and will have better drivability. The Tucson doesn’t offer a manual transmission option with any of the engines but it gets all-wheel-drive. The Hector doesn’t get an automatic transmission with the diesel engine. The 2020 Tucson facelift has marginally better fuel efficiency than the Hector Plus.

    The Hector Plus doesn’t get as many features as the new Tucson but it has most of them. And that price tag is tempting too for someone who prefers to be chauffeured around.
