A well connected journo says that the Hector will compete mainly with Harrier. Pricing would be around Creta in the bottom end & Compass at the Top end.

IMHO nothing matters unless MG gives the necessary after sales backup incase of glitches & reasonable service.

The 15-20L segment is getting crowded. Anyway, let's see. There's no such thing as "too many options".

After personally being a bit disappointed by the Harrier reviews (mostly due to its various shortcomings such as non-existent AT option, high NVH etc), I was (part of me still is) really hoping that the Hector overwhelms the Indian junta with its quality and feature list.

However, from what I've read so far, the Baojun 530 (which is what the Hector is called in China) is targeted towards the low end of the Chinese market and suffers from irritating creaks and groans suggesting a lack of sophistication. I hope MG addresses these before launching in India.

Here's a scathing review.

They want to sell a car which is in the 8-11L price bracket in the 15L bracket, wonder if they put in engineering improvements to make it worth of the money they will demand from the consumer

MG will offer a dual-clutch automatic transmission on the Hector SUV. Alongside a 6-speed manual, a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox – developed in-house by MG-SAIC – will also be available with the Hector’s 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine.

Loved what I've seen so far. I hope it does not disappoint in ride quality, fit and finish etc. when it launches.

This is looking good so far. I'm surprised at the choice of a DCT automation transmission. Besides Hyundai the Germans (VAG) and American (Ford) haven't had a good reliability rate with dual clutch GB's. Wonder how the Chinese will fare.
Is this an inhouse designed and manufactured gearbox or will it be sourced from a specialist?

Edit: Read the ACI article, it is an inhouse MG-SAIC developed gearbox that has been tested for 2.6 millions KMS.
