The SUV continues to be offered in three variants, and its prices have been hiked for 2022

  • Hector debuted in 2019 with the choice of a 6-speed DCT for the 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine.

  • With the DCT now dropped, 8-step CVT is the only automatic transmission.

  • Petrol-automatic variants currently range from Rs 16.2 lakh to Rs 19.53 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

  • No diesel-automatic variant for the Hector.

  • DCT has been discontinued for the three-row Hector Plus as well.

The MG Hector’s 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine is no longer available with the choice of a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT). This leaves the CVT as the only automatic transmission on offer with the full-size SUV.

The petrol-DCT was the automatic option the Hector debuted with in 2019. In February 2021, MG introduced the 8-step CVT for the SUV’s 1.5-litre turbo-petrol at the same price as the DCT. The mild-hybrid petrol powertrain is still limited to a manual transmission, the same as the 2-litre diesel engine.

MG offered the DCT automatic for just two variants of the Hector: Smart and Sharp. The optional CVT is available with the lower-spec Shine trim also.
