Top 5 Hybrid Cars with Price & Specs

The 170hp, 60-liter engine in the MG Hector diesel, which is coupled to a 6-speed manual transmission, has plenty of torque and impresses with its linear power delivery and refinement. However, the Fiat-sourced engine’s quick clutch remains a source of frustration.

The top-of-the-line models receive a large panoramic sunroof, which only adds to the interior’s spacious atmosphere.
