Added in: comparisons

The Tata Harrier has finally come out. Tata gave us this brilliant product after a series of teasers and we will be bringing you an in-depth review of the car very soon. The Harrier is entering a somewhat crowded segment, so we would love to take this opportunity to compare the specs of the Harrier with the Hyundai Creta, Jeep Compass and the Mahindra XUV 500. For this comparison, we shall only consider the diesel engine options of the cars. Let us first compare the dimensions of the cars.

The Harrier boasts the maximum wheelbase in this segment offering maximum space for its occupants. It is one huge vehicle and is only surpassed by the XUV 500 in terms of height. Moreover, a ground clearance of 205 mm is the best in its class making going over obstacles a breeze.

Talking in terms of the engine capacity, the Harrier seems right in the ballpark of the other vehicles. The Creta with its smaller engine feels a bit left out with the big dogs over here. The harrier manages to stay in between with is 2-litre Kryotec engine. It is interesting to note that despite using the same engine, the compass gets a bit more power than the Harrier and is the most powerful car in the segment. Now we shall discuss the safety features present in all the car.
