MG Hector vs Tata Harrier specification comparison

The domination of the SUVs in the Indian market has seen an incredible rise in the recent years which, in turn, has made the manufacturers to focus on the segment more than ever. Almost every car manufacturer has one or more SUVs in their lineup now and still more new players join the party every now and then.

When Harrier was launched earlier this year, Tata Motors made a lot of buzz about its modern styling and the features it had to offer. The SUV was welcomed well in the market too and gained 3 months of waiting period on the launch day itself. However, it has entered a really crowded segment dominated by big and popular players like Hyundai Creta, Renault Duster and Jeep Compass.

As if the segment had any fewer competitors, British car manufacturer Morris Garages (MG Motors) decided to make their debut in India with an SUV too. MG’s Hector SUV, dubbed as ‘The Internet Car’ has been officially launched and is being promoted for its hi-tech connectivity features.

So who wins the battle between the two newly added players in the segment? Let’s check it out.
