Under Rs 5 lakh market, which is carried forward by a clutch of Maruti Suzuki hatchbacks, Renault Kwid and Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, saw the robust increment as always. The interesting trend was in the SUV market. As the economy reopened, it was the SUV segment leading the front and delivering good sales figures. New faces along with new popular ones from 2020 were chartbusters.
The journey went on and within a year of MG’s start, we had Hector Plus’s debut in the market and making the line-up much more family-oriented, which is a big advantage in a market like India. And now that the brand has turned 18 months old in the market, it has introduced a facelift of Hector and also rolled out a 7-seater version of the MG Hector Plus.
The Jeep Compass facelift comes with subtle and sophisticated upgrades and the asking price for this SUV could start at Rs 17 lakh (ex-showroom) and go up to Rs 28 lakh (ex-showroom). The Compass facelift will take on the likes of Volkswagen T-Roc, Skoda Karoq, Tata Harrier, and the 2021 MG Hector facelift.
