Here’s an acceleration test between MG Hector diesel and Hyundai Creta diesel. Watch the video embedded below to know the amazing results.
In India, there are a lot of cars on offer in the C-SUV segment. MG Hector and Hyundai Creta are among the most popular SUVs in this segment. MG Hector was the first product from the automaker for the Indian market, and it is doing quite well in terms of overall sales. The situation is quite similar to the new-gen Hyundai Creta. It was introduced in our market a few months back, and right now, it is the top-selling SUV in its segment. Recently, we got our hands on both the SUVs and to check their capabilities, we’ve conducted a small acceleration test to see how fast both the SUVs accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph.
In total, we conducted three different rounds to make sure that the results we obtained are accurate. The test was conducted in real-world conditions with 2 passengers sitting inside the cabin along with camera gear. Both the SUVs in our test are diesel-powered and are paired with a manual transmission. The new-gen Hyundai Creta is powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel mill, which is capable of shredding out 115 PS of power and 250 Nm of twisting force. On the other hand, MG Hector is powered by an FCA-sourced 2.0-litre Multijet diesel motor that produces power and torque outputs of 170 PS and 350 Nm.
Now coming to our acceleration test, MG Hector accelerates from 0 to 100kmph in 13.55 seconds, while Creta with its lightweight does the same job in 12.83 seconds. In the second attempt, the Hyundai SUV took reached 100kmph in 12.80 seconds nevertheless, Hector did so in 12.87 seconds. In the last attempt, Hyundai Creta touched 100kmph in 12.23 seconds, and the MG SUV took 12.83 seconds. There is a very slight difference between the acceleration timings of both the SUVs, but the light kerb weight helped the Korean SUV to defeat MG Hector.
