Hyundai Creta, on the other hand, was accepted as one of India's most popular SUVs, when it clocked a maximum waiting period of 12 weeks which is the highest in its segment. While it is already at-par with most of the other cars in its segment, the Korean automaker is already working on the next-generation Creta.

While both the Jeep Compass and Hyundai Creta offer appealing features, MG has decked the Hector with premium features as well.
