The rivalry that has been doing the rounds ever since the two cars were announced, so which one of these mid-size SUVs warrant your attention? Let’s begin with the LOOKS When parked side by side, the Hector is the larger of the two cars here, and the difference is easily noticeable. Both the cars are absolutely smashing in the way they appeal to the audience; they both stand out and draw a lot of attention. The moment you see any one of these in your rearview mirror, you are bound to miss the road for a couple of seconds and admire their gorgeous front-ends. Beauty elements aside, the Hector, on close observation, looks out of proportion. The wheel arch gaps are too large and the car is under tyred, they are just too small for its size. This completely ruins the side profile of the Hector and the rear also, is a bit overdone for my liking. Seltos, on the other hand, has perfect proportions. It looks like the ideal urban compact SUV, beautiful to look at from all the angles. THE INTERIORS Step inside the Seltos, and you are greeted by a plush interior that exudes quality in and out. The quality of the Seltos’ interior is hands down the best in this segment (until the Kamiq arrives). The contemporary design and the sporty flat-bottom steering wheel accentuate your experience, and everything looks and feels built to last. The 10.25-inch infotainment screen is crisp, and you don’t need to take your eyes off the road to operate it. The system overall is slick to use and doesn’t suffer from the occasional delay to touch inputs that you face in the Hector’s screen. Bose powers the sound system on the Kia on the higher variants and Arkamys does duty on the lower ones, the sound quality from both is excellent. The Seltos offers good amount of space in the rear and is slightly roomier than the Creta. The very first thing you notice in the Hector, is the huge 10.4-inch Tesla-esque infotainment screen which controls almost everything on this car. The list of things that you can control with this system is endless. One thing you’ll immediately realise in the Hector is the sense of airiness the cabin offers. If space is your priority, then look no further and head to the nearest MG dealership. The legroom, shoulder room on offer is substantially greater than the Seltos. The mammoth sunroof adds to the airiness of the cabin. On the flip side, the quality of materials is not consistent; you’ll find a mix of soft-touch plastics and cheap plastics. There is a noticeable lag to the touch response of the screen and no buttons means that you must get used to the new technology on this car. WHAT ARE THEY LIKE TO DRIVE I test drove the turbo-petrols on both these cars with their DCTs, so I’ll only talk about these engines. Talking of numbers, the 1.4L on the Seltos puts out 138bhp and 242Nm of torque while the 1.5L motor on the Hector puts out 141bhp and 250Nm of torque. While the on-paper difference isn’t significant, there is a world of difference in how these two perform on the road. To put things in perspective, the Seltos is easily the driver’s here and it won't take more than 5 minutes of your drive to come to this conclusion. The moment you step on the gas, it is the Seltos which is the more responsive of the two. The throttle responses are quick and the car always feels eager to be pushed around. There’s plenty of low-end grunt and the progress is quick, if you are heavy on your right foot. The DCT on the Seltos also does a great job. It is quick with shifts and will give you the right gear depending upon your needs. One thing worth mentioning is that it is not as quick as the VW’s DSG (I drive a Vento TDI DSG and hence could make out the difference). The throttle responses on the Hector in comparison are far too relaxed. The progress is weak and the car builds momentum gradually. There’s no sense of urgency whatsoever from this motor. The Hector actually plays a different character here, it is a relaxed cruiser and is not meant to be pushed hard. The DCT is slow with shifts and gets confused if you mash the A-pedal. All things said, the Hector isn’t a car which will deliver a sub-10sec 0-100 sprint, but it does a great job of being a relaxed city commute. RIDE AND HANDLING Another department where the Seltos trumps the Hector hands down. The suspension is towards the stiffer side but not uncomfortable by any means. It has the European firmness to it and the great body control shows that. However, there is certain amount of body roll but it is well contained. You can chuck this car around corners with confidence. High speed manners are top notch with the car staying planted always. The Hector is set up soft and therefore, you have considerable body roll. The low speed ride on the Hector is excellent. It will swallow any undulations the road throws at it without you even noticing it. The soft suspension does play spoilsport on highway speeds as it doesn’t inspire the same level of confidence as the Seltos does. It keeps wallowing and is easily unsettled by the smallest of potholes at high speeds. VERDICT Both these cars actually appeal to two very different set of customers. If you are someone who can compromise a little on space and like spirited driving, the Seltos is the one for you. But make no mistake, the Seltos offers a lot of space but simply not as much as the Hector. And, if space, comfort and a relaxed city SUV is on your checklist, there’s nothing better than the Hector. The Hector also has the longer feature list to its name here. All in all, both these cars are the best in their segments, it is your own priorities that will decide which one ends up in your garage.
Two reasons : Architecture : Tesla, and certain other manufacturers such as Rivian, Volvo and Polestar use a special chassis design known as the skateboard. The key highlight of this structure is that it’s an EV-specific chassis design. It is built around the battery and motor, as opposed to the design of normal chassis which is built around engine and gearbox. The battery is housed under the floor of the vehicle, stretching all the way along its wheelbase, and the motors are placed directly onto the axle (unlike how ICE were placed above the axle) It saves space around the front bay where the engine used to be and provides a rather compact design. Notice how low the motor is placed in this model 3 chassis. You still have space for a bag or two in the front. Part labelled 3 and 4 are also located within the engine bay in a Kona or ZSEV or Nexon EV. This is that chassis of Kona Electric. The motor is placed exactly like an ICE would have been placed. Because, the Kona was born as a crossover, not an exclusive electric car. They utilised the same chassis for their EV, and although better than competitors, couldn’t challenge Tesla. Because they forcefully converted what should’ve been a petrol car into an electric car — not much could’ve been expected out of it. MG ZSEV and Nexon EV are also same category. A petrol car forcefully converted into electric. It limits the size of battery, placement of motor, and compromises interior and boot space. Size : Understand, that cars overseas, or at least in America, are much larger than Indian cars. One factor is maybe the larger cities, broader roads and second, the average height and weight (and thus size) of Americans is larger than Indians. They thus need a larger car. A compact crossover like Nexon EV which claims to seat 5 Indians can only seat 4 average Americans. That said, size enables more of everything — more trunk space, more interior space and more space for engines. A motor from Tesla is not only smaller but also more efficient than one in Nexon EV or Kona or even MG ZSEV. Thus greater range. Coming to the point, the model 3, the smallest of all teslas still is a whopping 4.7m long and 2m wide. That’s nearly as large as a BMW 3 series which is quite a big car by Indian standards. Tesla has a longer hood or bonnet and the Frunk is only about 2/3rd of the hood. The space just adjacent to it is closed off and houses the motor, which anyway is slung close to the axle. Similarly, by compromising on space for spare wheel in the trunk, they’re able to accommodate another motor back there. Edit 1 : (03/02/2020) : Wow! This is my first answer to cross 100 upvotes! Thank you everyone!
I have owned Jeep, Creta, Hexa… driven Harrier and Kia a lot…MG was never a choice among others. We went on an excursion trip organized by Tata (Tata SOUL) to Leh/Ladakh. Despite their tall claims, the two cars that broke down the most were the Tata Harriers… brand new flagship orange and white Harriers just few 1000 km on the odometer and they had severe problems: the suspension broke, took 2 days to get the spares but again, it had never been repaired so, even the Tata technicians found it challenging to repair the suspension The other Harrier had computer glitch which prevented it to rev up more than 2500 rpm.. imagine, trying to drive on hilly terrain with engine revving only upto 2500 rpm. We saw transmission issues, suspension issues, computer issues in harrier the moment it was challenged with some mountain inclines and sharp turns Harrier is grossly underpowered for its size n weight The automatic transmission in Hexa would fail now n then and using manual mode did not help much. At times, the throttle would simply won’t respond creating panic on inclines and rough patches of the roads The clutch of two hexas burnt as the car lacked the power to pull through inclines and hence severe use of clutch burnt them off Hexa used a 19” tyre which was blown up and it was impossible to get a new tyre authored from Leh to Srinagar to Jammu to chandigarh or even Delhi. It took us about a month to get the new tyre. We had to drive with a repaired jugaad tyre risking the safety. At one point the repaired sealed joined came off and the car skidded 360 degree on a mountain descent. Luckily, a narrow escape. The spare wheel provided is smaller size with a steel rim that can only be used on emergencies as we had. Tata: Among the two Harrier and Hexa, if you are looking for a decent size, good looking city commute vehicle with 5 seater, then buy harrier, otherwise get Hexa. Creta I have a Creta auto full options as well which never gave any problems even on sharp inclines of Ooty, Kannur, etc. but again, we did not take Creta to Leh which is more challenging than Ooty. Drives smooth, fuel efficient, easy to maintain and feature rich, and a great customer service compared to other brands.. Kia is a cheaper lot Hyundai everywhere else in world like USA, Europe and Middle East. It surely is called a poor man’s Car and does not enjoy any status. Car has features but due to corner cutting, it is not much reliable and after few years of use it runs like a battered can. MG I would not trust Chinese Car as these are cheapest option for Leasing/Rental companies in foreign countries. They boast of lot of features but then, it lacks any reliability and MG has a long way to establish itself in India and I would not like to be their guinea pig. Compass is a smaller compact version of Jeeps flagship Cherokee which is a very successful and tough car. Although I do not own a compass but the test drive was great, although the car is over priced, it still is a good option. Jeep makes great SUVs. As a bottom line, either go for Creta or Compass for a smoother ride, comfort and features. Go fo harrier if you can handle Tata’s Legacy way of handling customers… stay away from Kia and MG. This Picture says it all…!!! Updates: Tata Launched a new Harrier with some significant upgrades. My small question is why Tata has to upgrade its flasgship new gen car such a hurried launch (1st gen) and them upgrade it immediately without even any evidence of being very popular…!!! We are planning a 10,000 KM ride from Gujarat to Arunachal in Harrier soon. Will update on the performance of the new Harrier soon. Waiting to get the car from Tata and logistical clearances. Tata Discontinued Hexa: I feel how all owners of Hexa would be feeling… Cheated!!! Just after launching a premium SUV costing 20+ Lakhs, Tata simply discontinued it. Now offering just one model called Tata Hexa Safari…!!! Not sure what will happen to support and spares for the Hexa Kia Seltos: As per the comments, Please understand that Hyundai and Kia are two brands from the same Company (Hyundai). So, both Creta and Seltos have exactly same engine and gearbox. The only difference is in its body and some features that are given at a premium in Seltos. I drove MG Hector recently. My friend bought it being a very Techie (Working with MS). I agree it is a very good connected car, has lots of tech in it.. but it remains what it is at its core. Please note that Cars are always evaluated based on its Engine, Transmission, Suspension first and then the features. Features gets outdated very soon (with in couple of years) while the car’s Engine, Transmission lasts for the life of the car. Please DO NOT call Brezza or Venue or such small Hatchbacks as SUVs. Although even Creta, Seltos, Hector do not qualify to be called SUV but these are pitched as SUVs to Indian Customers who fancy SUVs more and willing to pay premium for it. Appreciate your comments and upvotes.
This is the new discussion going on with people in dilema on which one to choose between these two SUVs in the market. So, in this post, I’ll tell you which SUV is better for whom so that picking one among will be easier than before. Let us start with the new MG Hector Plus. This is not an all-new vehicle but a facelift for the current Hector though its gonna sell alongside as ‘Plus version’ in separate. Instead of running through the whole details of the vehicle, let me try to make things as simpler as possible but incase if it goes long, don’t worry, it’ll surely be informative at its best. Firstoff, the changes that were done in the Hector plus are : 1. Increased dimensions by 65mm though the wheelbase is still intact. 2. Front and rear elements were redesigned and the front part of the vehicle now looks more imposing and more luxurious than before which is a good thing to be mentioned. The DRL design now looks more distinct and same is the case with the headlamps design with the arrow style and integrating the headlamps within themselves looks futuristic. Coming to the rear, its not a complete overhaul but the changes aren’t very appealing either unlike in the case of Harrier but simple enough with the new design that looks good enough for this SUV. 3. Interiors also have changed a bit with the plush leather captain seats which look and feel luxurious and also there’s some leather work done on the dash as well which gives a premium appeal for the customers. 4. Apart from these, there are no changes that were made mechanically like in the engine tuning or other but for the infotainment, MG said that they’ve added a chatbot that chats with you while driving alone or when you want to have some fun time with the assistant. 5. Powered tailgate is another feature which they’ve been boasting of and it works with a leg swipe which is nice and apart from all these, MG says that they’ve improved the ride quality as well but in my opinion, it should be tested by the customers because previously there was a complaint on its ride quality in highways being bouncy and all but I’d like to reserve this for the test ride as it need to be tested in person than posting about it through some medium like in Quora. So, these are the changes that were done to the Hector plus compared to the Hector and price also, its pretty competitive and starting at 13 Lakhs and ending at nearly 18.5 is something that one needs to give it a thought before its purchase as there are other bigger and more competent rivals like Harrier, Seltos and Creta which are its hardcore competitors that offer something huge than Hector Plus has to offer. Now, let us discuss some facts about the MG Hector plus because there are some changes that were expected from it but MG somehow neglected them even in their new offering as well. 1. Wheels are small for its size and everyone asked for either a new alloy design that appeals massive or atleast bigger sized tyres which didn’t happen. 2. The Infotainment wasn’t that responsive and it isn’t new either in this Hector plus and the 360° camera quality was a bit laggy too. Manual ac controls would’ve been nice instead of the touch ones as it might lead to any crash if the driver is looking at the infotainment for all the controls. 3. Ride quality and the weight of the SUV is actually stopping the customers to consider it as their primary option but that also didn’t seem to have improved in this one considering the changes and improvement we’ve seen with Harrier 2020. 4. Automatic transmission in diesel is still not offered which was kind of a bummer for the customers as every rival of Hector plus is offering one. 5. 3rd row is strictly for kinds who are under 5 or 10 years as adults can’t find either the space or comfort no matter what tricks they try on it. Seats are set to their lowest and the leg room, underthigh support is lacking as well. 6. Mileage is the big draw as though other 2.0lit engine powered SUVs produce better mileage than Hector Plus, due to its weight, it has taken a toll in the mileage. So, to conclude about the MG Hector plus, its for the customers who love tech intesively and also the ones who love to have a vehicle that looks big and imposing. But if you want something better than MG Hector plus, then you need to wait till the launch of the Tata Gravitas if you desire for a better 3-row SUV compared to the Hector plus interms of comfort and accommodating more people inside. Now, let us jump into Tata Harrier. Its a stellar looking SUV in all ways possible be it design, powertrain or even the interiors as they look less nonsense with everything laid out well and in reach. The Grudges everyone was having with the Harrier previously is that there was no sunroof, ORVMs look fatty obstructing the vision at corners, USB ports need a hunter 😆😆 and also the alloys looked pretty basic and no powered driver seat and much more like this. But, with the facelifted model, Tata has managed to compensate most of the requirements that came with the feedback and now, its not all the biggest improvement and all in every department but not all bad either and a very attractive design to look at. In my opinion, Harrier is a pretty good package that we get from Tata Motors and features like Powered driver seat, panoramic sunroof, sharkfin antenna, new additions for the touch screen and also the automatic and all add to its favour and most notably, the colours, new alloys, dark edition, revised ports position and all are great and at safety front, the disc wiping, ESC, Hill Hold, Driving modes, ESP and all add to the betterment while there are still some things missing in it. Among them, the important and immediate requirements would be like : 1. Powered tailgate 2. Powered front passenger seat 3. Electronic parking brake or even a normal handbrake would’ve done the job fine, instead of the aircraft style one which actually takes more energy out of the one who drives it. 4. Reclining function for the rear seats would’ve added that extra bit of luxury inside the cabin but the seat angle is pretty decent as well. 5. Features like TPMS, rear disc brakes(This is a particular mention as Harrier is a heavy SUV and to stop it, only front discs would be less in my opinion) and connected cartech would’ve improved the overall ability of the Harrier and also paddle shifters could’ve improved the experience of the customers to a whole new level. Verdict : Its a tough choice to pick one among these two, but driving wise and comfort wise, you can fit 5-midsize adults comfortably in Harrier which was not the case with Hector Plus as accommodating 4 is the very viable option in it or if you’ve small children, then it’d certainly fit them well but for mid-size or full sized adults, its gotta be the Harrier for sure. Though the Hector Plus is a very good offering interms of tech, space, seats and all, its the Harrier that cocoons you well with its better ride quality and comfort of an automatic and the mileage figures are pretty good considering its size and proportions as well. So, its the Harrier I vote for (I’m not at all partial to any of those companies but trying to pour out my opinion in practical as possible and this has nothing to do with either Ban China products or partiality thing and all). Thank you for reading this post and if you find it informative, do encourage me through your upvotes and also don’t forget to share this because there might be people who require this. Edit : Hello guys! At first it felt a little underwhelming when the response wasn’t that good as it took much effort and time out of me to write this big answer. But, once it was identified, it really feels great that you guys liked my explanation about the both SUVs. Thank you once again and see yeah!
25 years ago people questioned the South Koreans for there devotion to car building. Now Kias and Hyundai’s are every bit as good as the competition. If we look at phones made in China we can see that a devotion to improving a product is there. China is one of the main players in mobile phone innovation at the moment and America sees this as a threat to Apple. Chinese car manufacturers will suffer the same problems. Political, Geographical and Customer bias towards certain brands will always happen. MG which has dealers in the UK has already done three things that other chinese brands, have failed to do. Firstly they have a recognisable brand, MG. Secondly they have entered the market at the bottom. Offering high spec and decent size engines at affordable prices. Often personalised and in sporty colours MG’s stand out, for little cost. Thirdly not only have MG made a commitment to be in the UK but they are also committed to improvement. MG have been around long enough to have changed model shapes and brought out new models in different sectors. They are in the same position Hyundai and Kia were 20–25 years ago. As for german quality? Try something Japanese. I’ve never driven a Japanese sports car that wasn’t great to drive quickly. Or been in a japanese luxury car and not felt the luxury. The small cars are very economic and all are reliable. My experience of Hondas (and Toyota) would say they are infinitely more reliable than BMW or any VAG car. The German cars are with the exception of Audi, are all quite heavy in comparison to the Japanese competitor, Audi using Aluminium in the build to save weight. This points to their being more purpose in the Japanese cars, and the more weight in the german cars the better the perception of quality. So this points to Honda (maybe Toyota) or Audi being the best quality of build. You either go down a route with great purpose with a Honda or a car with great materials and design like a Audi. China will be making its own stamp on the same markets. It can see quality of Design, Materials and Practicality are all important. It will follow others for a while. Chinese car Designers will eventually be as common, If not more, than Western designers. Once a couple of cars have become great hits they will become much more mainstream. If I was a Chinese designer I would design a vehicle that used a Vtec honda engine built in china under licence. I would make it, of similar materials to Audi, (58% Aluminium). And sell it under a old aeronautical or car marque name. Saab would be excellent but SuperMarine or Hawker, equally good. A name that will get them press and imply great engineering. My first cars would be Chinese take away colours, Reds, Golds and Black, Deep Greens. The Designs simple and elegant and not niche market. Offer great value in a sector China is not in ,2 seater sports cars or city cars. Can you imagine a two seat mx5 competitor with a Honda engine and aluminium body at £13000? Made by Supermarine who have 1 model “The Harrier” in a range of 20 colours, with 5 wheel options, stripes, tigers, led lights, maybe a carbon option or traditional wood trim. Even with an older Honda engine, that car would sell.
