If you want the best diesel compact SUV on offer in India, which one would you go for? The choices aren't many but the fight for the crown is close, so we break it down for you in this comparison test

In one corner, you’ve got Ford’s EcoSport TDCi, that’s taken the Indian car market by storm and ruffled a few feathers across segments, be it hatchbacks, sedans or MPVs. In the other is the Terrano dCi 110 PS. The Nissan is everything what the Duster is but does it wearing a dapper outfit. Now you have a dilemma, the city-cool EcoSport or the urban yet rugged Terrano. 

 

While the EcoSport diesel has 91 PS on tap, the Terrano has 110 PS so does that give the Terrano it’s edge? It does, yet loses it as quickly since it is about Rs 3 lakh costlier than the EcoSport. There’s more though to these two cars than just power and price, and before I start sounding like a politician, let me start by telling you why these cars are catching the fancy of every Indian car buyer around the Rs 10-12 lakh mark.

Standing Tall

 

Both these compact SUVs have everything from premium hatchbacks like the Hyundai i20 to midsize sedans like the Hyundai Verna and VW Vento in their crosshairs. That’s because both offer the space of a sedan, the practicality of a hatchback and the imposing stance the hatchback and the sedan lack. This coupled with a frugal diesel engine and the ability to tackle broken roads like they should, give both these SUVs the edge. Between the two when seen from their side profile, the EcoSport’s stubby front end and relatively odd dimensions compared to the Terrano’s proper SUV stance give the Nissan a point over the Ford.
