The company can offer the CVT gearbox in this SUV car with a 1.5-liter turbo petrol engine. In this sense, two automatic transmission options CVT and DCT with Hector will now be available.
Better than city driving
Let me tell you that in the Indonesian version of MG hector, CVT gearbox with turbo petrol engine is already available. It is expected that this transmission option can now also be included in the Indian version of Hector. Its CVT gearbox can be a more affordable option than the DCT. Also, it can prove to be a much better option in terms of city driving.
