In 2019, MG Motors started its innings in India with the launch of the Hector SUV. In a short period, it became popular for its elegant design, spacious cabin with many features, and multiple engine options, all at an aggressive price. MG Hector received its first facelift in 2021.
The newer versions have reduced the price of pre-owned MG Hector vehicles. So it is a good deal to buy a pre-owned MG Hecto. Here is a list of cautious tips to check before you close the deal.
Pre-owned MG Hector - petrol or diesel engine
MG Hector is available in both petrol and diesel engine options.
The 1.5L petrol motor is the turbocharged unit that produces 143PS and 250Nm torque, paired with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
There is also an 8-step CVT gearbox version available after February 2021.
The diesel engine, on the other hand, is the 2.0L engine that generates 170PS and 350Nm torque, coupled with only a 6-speed manual.
This engine is sourced from Fiat and is a reliable workhorse with enough efficiency and power on tap.
Also, in real-world test conditions, the diesel one offers better fuel efficiency in both urban and highway driving conditions.
Opt for the diesel variant of the pre-owned MG Hector if you will be using it for frequent highway trips and mileage. However, if your trips are within the city limits, opt for the petrol engine.
|Variant||Transmission||Mileage in cities (approx.)||Mileage on highways (approx.)|
|1.5L petrol||6-speed manual||7.2kmpl||10.2kmpl|
|1.5L petrol||Dual-clutch automatic||7kmpl||9kmpl|
|2.0L diesel||6-speed manual||12.5kmpl||16.5kmpl|
