Price and Competition
The MG Hector Plus will be priced similar to the MG Hector and will rival the Mahindra XUV500 and upcoming Tata Gravitas. Though Innova Crysta is much more premium-priced, MG says that the Hector Plus will be a low-cost effective alternative. A seven-seat version of the Hyundai Creta is also expected to enter the segment at the end of 2021 with the name Alcazar.
