Mg Hector vs Toyota Innova Spinny

Heavyweight Contenders: MG Hector Vs Toyota Innova Crysta

When it comes to buying bigger cars the question is, mostly, whether to choose an SUV or an MUV. While SUV is all about sturdiness and off-road adventures, MUV is about comfort for everybody in the large family, including the pet. Morris Garages’ MG Hector, a premium SUV, comes as a massive competition to India’s favourite MUV, Toyota Innova Crysta, which has been the leader in the seven/eight-seater segment for years now.

Both MG Hector and Toyota Innova Crysta come with their notable features. While the former is loved for its driving experience that’s tech-focused, the latter for its premium and powerful driving. MG Hector with 4 main variants and Toyota Innova Crysta with 3 are ideal choices for those who are looking at premium SUV or MUV that is within ₹25 lakhs.

Let’s discuss these MG and Toyota cars in detail.

From the above specifications, we can see that the differences in their dimensions are negligible. Seating space and comfort would be almost the same for both cars. Yet Toyota Innova Crysta, with a spacious third row, would be a much better choice for a bigger family. If the car is for a family of five then MG Hector would be a perfect choice. Similarly, on boot space, Toyota Innova Crysta provides more space with the third row down.

In diesel variants too, while Toyota Innova Crysta’s 2.4-liter engine is packed with power, MG Hector makes a huge impression with its high-performing engine offering fuel-efficiency.

The only thing that MG Hector is missing right now is a diesel car with automatic transmission. If one is looking for an automatic SUV or MUV car in diesel, Toyota Innova Crysta would be an ideal choice for now. But even with a manual transmission, MG Hector is still offering a 6-speed gearbox while in Toyota Innova Crysta it’s only available with its automatic version.
