The Jeep Compass is a premium SUV in India, with posh features and a sturdy engine. It recently received an update in the form of an all-new Sport Plus variant, along with being spotted in a rugged avatar, dubbed the Trailhawk.

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.
