Here we are going to compare three stalwarts from the SUV segment. All of them have gained a strong identity, consequently sales, since their introduction in the Indian automobile market. Yes, we are going to dissect Tata Harrier, Jeep Compass, and Hyundai Creta to evaluate their dominant attributes.
Have you been confused among the three? Mulling over which one to buy, Tata Harrier, Hyundai Creta, or Jeep Compass?
Read to have a fair idea about each.
Basic Construction of Harrier, Compass, and Creta
Tata Harrier has an upper hand over others concerning the size. Creta would be the loser in terms of basic dimensions. Designed with elan, Tata Harrier has a distinctive look and appeal. Road presence offered by the model is also very impressive. The Harrier is 328mm longer than the Creta. On the other hand, Compass is placed in between. It is neither as small as a Creta nor as large as the Harrier. It falls 203mm short of the giant.
A similar difference exists in the case of wheelbase and length also. Having 114mm more than Hyundai Creta does and 80mm more than Jeep Compass, Tata Harrier is the longer one. Undoubtedly both the others fade in front of Harrier in wheelbase dimension as well.
Let’s have a quick look at the dimensions:
|Dimensions||Tata Harrier||Hyundai Creta||Jeep Compass|
Interior Features: Harrier v/s Compass v/s Creta
All three SUVs, Creta, Harrier, and Compass have been designed meticulously to offer optimal space inside. Passengers will have a pleasant experience both inside the city and during off-roading adventures. The sturdy design features are aimed at delivering an exceptional experience.
Harrier has a roomy second row that is adequately spaced offering plenty of headroom and legroom. The car will accommodate three well-built adults comfortably, without rubbing each other. Nonetheless, the driving position may cause a bit of discomfort for many. The problem would worsen in the case of short drivers.
Hyundai has always been an intelligent car manufacturer. They have been proving it through their models on Indian roads since 1999. Each of the cars from the Korean brand has been a tough contender. The brand maintains its identity with Hyundai Creta too. The model has a brilliant and spacious interior, though not as much as the Harrier. However, Creta outperforms Jeep Compass on this factor. The car is roomier than the Jeep.
The designers at Jeep haven’t paid much attention to interior spacing it seems. The car doesn’t offer comfortable seating for the rear passengers. We believe that the car manufacturer must consider this seriously and introduce necessary modifications. Unlike the Harrier, Jeep Compass delivers a commanding driving position. The highly placed seat would provide a detailed view of the front to have better control.
