MG Hector Plus vs Toyota Innova Crysta vs Mahindra XUV 500 vs Tata Gravitas - Spec Comparison

5 June 2020 Shakti Nath Jha

The Indian Car Buyers now generally prefer SUVs over sedans or regular hatchbacks. Currently, we have an abundance of SUVs in the market in the sub-20 lakh price bracket, but there is a problem. Most of them are just five-seaters and couldn't fit a big family. If one wants to make sit seven people at once in an SUV, that's only possible with the Mahindra's or else one has to get an MPV. However, soon buyers will have a lot of options to choose from as a lot of seven-seater SUVs will be launched in the country. And so, in this article, we will be doing a spec-comparison of the upcoming MG Hector Plus vs Toyota Innova Crysta vs Rivals which include the Mahindra XUV 500 and the Tata Gravitas.
