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.
