- MG Hector and Hector Plus DCT variants are no longer on offer and now Petrol CVT is the only automatic option on the SUV
- The 6-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT) was only available in 1.5-Litre turbo-petrol engine
MG Motor has discontinued the DCT variants on the Hector and Hector Plus. After the 6-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT) there’s only 8-speed continuously variable transmission (CVT) available for the customers. Those customers who wants to purchase the automatic variant will have to go for the 8-step CVT variant. The discontinued 6-speed DCT was available in 1.5-Litre turbo-petrol engine.
MG Hector DCT
When MG Motor launched the 2021 Hector, it was available in 6-speed DCT, 8-step CVT as well as 6-speed manual gearbox options. Now, almost a year later the British brand has removed the DCT option from both the Hector and Hector Plus.
The 1.5-Litre turbo-petrol engine on which the DCT was on offer packs 141 BHP and 250 Nm. Other powertrain options like 1.5-Litre mild-hybrid and 2.0-Litre diesel are still only available with 6-speed manual gearbox.
The MG Hector and Hector Plus rivals the Tata Harrier and Safari, and Mahindra XUV700. In its segment the Hyundai Alcazar is also a potential rival of the Hector SUV.
