In a significant move, MG Motors has announced a price reduction across its range of cars, making the MG Hector more affordable than its direct competitor, the Tata Harrier. This strategic pricing adjustment also includes the Hector Plus, positioning it competitively against the 6/7-seater variants of the Mahindra XUV700. Despite the price cut, the Hector Plus is still more expensive than the Tata Safari.

MG Motors has reduced the prices of the MG Hector and the diesel variant has seen a reduction of up to INR 80,000, while the petrol variants have seen a cut of up to INR 8,000.

However, it is worth noting the difference in the availability of a diesel-powered automatic powertrain option between the Hector and the Harrier; the latter offers this option, while the Héctor does not. Despite the price adjustments, the cost of the Hector is still INR 95,000 higher than the base 5-seater variant of the Mahindra XUV700.

This makes the base Hector Plus variant INR 4000 cheaper than the base 7-seater variant of the XUV700, although the Safari continues to offer better value for money.
