The MG Hector just got a new CVT automatic transmission option for the 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine. It now gets the choice of three transmissions : a 6-speed manual, 7-speed dual-clutch automatic, and the new 8-step CVT. Let’s see how the new Hector petrol-CVT compares to its rivals in terms of prices:

MG Hector Petrol CVT


  • The Hector’s new petrol-CVT is limited to the top-spec Smart and Sharp variants. Both are priced the same as the existing petrol-DCT (dual-clutch automatic) options.

  • Top-spec petrol-automatic variants of premium compact SUVs like the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos are priced relatively similar to the Hector’s petrol-automatic variants. Both the Korean SUVs get a CVT with the 1.5-litre petrol engine and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic with the 1.4-litre turbo-petrol unit.

Kia Seltos DCT

  • The top-spec Hector petrol-automatic is more affordable than the base-spec Jeep Compass petrol-automatic by Rs 1.39 lakh. 

  • The closest rival to the Hector is the Tata Harrier, but it does not offer a petrol motor. 

  • MG still does not offer an automatic option for the Hector’s 2.0-litre diesel engine.
