New Hyundai Tucson Vs Jeep Compass Vs Tata Harrier: Price, Specs And Features Comparison

Added in: Comparisons

Hyundai Motors India has finally launched the Tucson facelift at a starting price of Rs 22.30 lakh. The facelift of the SUV was first showcased at the AutoExpo 2020 held earlier this year at Greater Noida and was initially supposed to be launched somewhere around the month of April but got delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Now, with the launch of the facelifted Tucson, we are keeping with our custom of comparing the new product with its immediate rivals. As of now, the Hyundai Tucson has just one direct rival in the form of Jeep Compass in our country. However, for the sake of a cumulative comparison, we are adding the top-spec of the Tata Harrier to this comparison as well. Let us see how does Hyundai Tucson stack up against these two.

Engine & Transmission

Hyundai Tucson is powered either by a 2.0-litre VTVT petrol engine or 2.0-litre turbo diesel unit. The Jeep Compass also gets the option of either a 1.4-litre turbo petrol unit or 2.0-litre diesel unit. The Harrier on the hand only gets a 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine as it is yet to receive a petrol powertrain. In terms of performance, the Tucson diesel unit cranks out the highest output figures of 185 PS of maximum power and 400 Nm of torque. In respect to that, the Compass and the Harrier sharing the same diesel powertrain generates 173 PS and 170 Ps respectively. For the petrol powertrain, the Jeep’s 1.4-litre unit belts out the highest figures of 163 PS of power and 250 Nm of torque.

In the Hyundai Tucson, the transmission duties are carried by a 6-speed automatic in the petrol variants and an 8-speed automatic transmission in the diesel variants. For the Jeep Compass, there is a 6-speed manual gearbox standard for both the powertrains and the option of a 7-speed automatic gearbox on the petrol variants and 9-speed automatic for the diesel powertrain. The top-spec Harrier considered here is mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The top-spec trim of both Tucson and Compass offer an AWD option, whereas the Harrier is only an FWD SUV.
