Q. Which is better between Harrier and Creta?
  • Bhai don’t ever think of buying harrier as it’s a hopeless vehicle. My own harrier is still parked at Tata motor workshop due to non availability of parts and fuel pump which got faulty a month back . On my way to Vadodara to indore whole diesel got leakage due to faulty fuel pump and I was stuck in jungle in midnight. Hopeless vehicle from Tata motor. I this modern technological environment this type of quality was not at all expected from Tata’s ..!!!👎
  • If you are looking to buy Creta high-end, it costs around 18-18.5 lakhs on road. Harrier XZ high end is 19.5 on road price (without extended warranty, accessories etc). Specs, looks and engine performance wise Harrier beats Creta in all departments (only Harrier engine is noisier than Creta and has very few ergonomic issues).But make up your mind on if you really need that huge car as Harrier or not. Because it is way bigger than Creta.
  • I personally prefer harrier because we have a better engine than the creta, the maintenance of tests cars are low compared to Hyundai

Q. Which variant is value for money - Harrier?
  • Any low end model is value for money. But if you need some quality products in your car then you will have to shel out. Like example. Jbl 9 speakers comes in top of the line with a sub at the back.. But it's sounds amazing.. Car looks good in dual tone top of the line... So as your requirements. See what all options you get. And go for it
  • Harrier XT variant is best choice you can go for highher variant if budget is no issue.
  • XZ (Top Model) It has all the safety features and different terrain modes

Q. My Budget is upto 18 lakhs. I am planning to buy SUV in March'19. Most of my drive will be in city maximum upto 50km per day. I am confused which SUV to go for (1) Tata Harrier (2)Jeep Compass (3) Hyundai Tucson (4) Maruti Vitara Brezza. I also need decision on whether to go for Automatic or Manual,Petrol or Diesel.
  • If you're planning to go with the Jeep Compass, don't get the automatic transmission variant. On enquiring in the showroom, I was told that the clutch replacement cost in that car would be Rs.75,000/-, which you'll need to do frequently, given the clutch issues in the car. Moreover, you won't get a good enough variant in your budget. The Harrier is the biggest car which you'll get in this price bracket. However, one issue with the car is that it doesn't have disc brakes at the rear, it has drum brakes at the rear and disc at the front. Given the huge weight of the car, braking at higher speeds is an issue, which Tata has now resolved with the launch of the new Safari with all disc brakes.Don't buy Brezza if you're enthusiastic about fun driving. Also, it feels really less premium than the counterparts. I suggest you to go with the Creta Turbo DCT. It's fun to drive, well-built, and of course loaded with features to the brim.

  • Tata Harrier is good among these SUVs if you are looking for manual diesel but I felt the steering is kind of heavy or hard to drive not a easier one or smoother one in Harrier, but if you are looking for automatic you could consider hyundai creta automatic gearbox is so good in creta, Jeep compass you will get a base variant in your budget which I think is overpriced a bit,hyundai Tucson will also cost you around starting 23 lakhs but a good car to drive, and breeza is a good in its segment but lacks performance.

    I had wonderful experience with kicks... Strong built quality, excellent suspension and milage. I am not who is running after electrical features. looking after strong car.. all qualities kicks have. traveled 18k in just 8 months of purchase... covered 1100km in 17hrs without any tiredness. Creta or Kia Seltos may look like huge from outside but feels like sitting in compact SUV from inside. Kicks is big from inside and outside both... Drive it, Experience it and than buy it...

    I have been waiting for this car since AutoExpo 2018. And I have become the 75th customer in entire country (and obviously in entire world) to buy this vehicle.But I have made inquiries into other cars in this segment. That is the competitors of Harrier. They are Jeep Compass and XUV 500. I have removed Hyundai Tucson from this list as it is heavily priced for the performance and features it provides. First I have eliminated XUV500. The car is extremely spacious and extremely light to handle easily. But I did not like 1. The looks of XUV500 W11, both exterior and interior compared to Harrier or Compass.2. Sound system is pretty ordinary too, compared to Compass and Harrier.3. The horse power is bit higher for XUV500 compared to Harrier (comes into play after a speed of 120kmph - which I have no intentions of crossing on Indian road conditions). 4. And it has got sunroof (which is awkwardly placed between the front and rear seats inaccessible to either row). 5. And it has got disc brakes for all wheels (which is not a necessity to me, until the braking does the sudden halts for me efficiently).Then I have had tough time to eliminate Jeep Compass. Because the built and looks of Compass are exceptionally great. The quality reminded me of Benz, BMW premium cars in terms of drive quality, NVH levels in cabin, suspension, heavy and safe feeling inside the car. Overall there are lots of premium touches for Compass.The reasons for eliminating Compass are:1. The base variant Compass Sport on road price is 20.5 lakhs - the same price as top variant of Harrier XZ. 2. The safety features provided in Harrier like ESP, Corner stability, Roll over mitigation control, 6 air bags are provide in compass starting from Compass Limited 4x4 edition which is priced at 27 lakhs on road.3. Even if I go with Compass Sport, basic requirements like good leather seats, reverse parking camera, reverse parking sensors, fog lamps, projector headlamps etc should be bought as additional accessories - despite shelling 20.5 lakhs.4. Space of Compass is enough for 5 people, but the rear seats are uncomfortably vertical, causing pains and cramps in abdomen for a bit fat people on long drives.So I bought Harrier XZ and got it delivered on Feb 10th 2019 and roamed more than 5000 kms till date. The following are pros and cons I have observed.Pros:1. The turning radius is very good. 2. The hydraulic steering gives wonderful control on the car. Even at low speeds, the steering is not heavy.3. Very comfortable seats even for a huge person. For long drives these are very apt.4. Excellent infotainment system. Sound system is extraordinary. The touch panel is very responsive and feather touch. Android Autoplay works brilliantly. The dashboard just behind steering is very helpful to check distance to empty, mileage the car is returning.5. Air conditioning for both front and rear is brilliant.6. Braking is excellent and adequate even in high speeds (though rear brakes are drum cylinder brakes). Had an unfortunate chance of testing Corner stability Program. A sudden turn by a biker on highway made me steer hard right. CSP immediatley kicked in and safely did the turn in opposite direction and turned me on to highway after crossing the obstacle.7. ESP programs all are efficient and highly useful. Because of the drive modes, I have an experience of driving 3 different cars as economy mode converts the car engine power to 110 PS, city mode to 125 PS and Sport mode to 140 PS.8. Enormous boot space - I have literally packed my family"s (consists of 5 adults) entire clothes packed into the boot. Nothing more to say.Cons:1. Front view of the car is bit dull and not so eye catching. The tata logo doesn"t help much either to cotradict. The car catches eye only when the side or back of the car comes into view.2. The right side ORVM clubbed with the A pillar creates a huge blindspot. Twice I almost had an accident, and once I gave a slight nudge to a scooterist.3. The Xenon HID projector headlamps are very bright, but when faced with beam lights of opposite vehicles, some blindspots are created. Need extra LED lights to be installed if you are regular in driving on highways, which don"t cover opposite vehicle beam lights.Overall Performance:The handling of the car in any road conditions is excellent in this price range. Whether it be braking, suspension or steering control, everything is exceptional about this car. Talk about comfort, and there is no better seating than Harrier (except of middle person in rear seat). The pickup of the car is magnificent in sport mode. Not so exciting in other driving modes. And coming to mileage, I have travelled from Vijayawada to Tirupati a distance of 450 kms and it cost me 30 litres of diesel at speeds of 120 kmph on highways. This care is built for long drives and it shows.After sale services:Surprised to say this, but the after sale service of Tata is very good. Very good is a huge leap from very bad in terms of servie of Tata in passenger vehicle segment. The approach to customer and his concerns has changed a lot. They have been provocative all the time in resolving small issues I had initially. And door delivery service, suggestions of what kind of service is apt for the car condition has been excellent so far. Overall, I am happy with customer service till date.

    Post two software updates done on my Harrier a month ago. I should say Tata Motors have resolved the issues I (and I suppose other Harrier owners also) was facing. This has instilled the confidence in me about this product and the service. The last update was done at Bafna Motors, Phugewadi. Really good experience, good people and good service. Keeping the first update for reference. --------------------------------------------------Issue with the non responsive accelerator..? I"ve recently found couple of niggles with my Harrier, bought in mid May, running around 3.5k km with one servicing done.Momentorarily changes in the drive modes.. It changes automatically, if the vehicle is in city mode without I changing it for couple of seconds it gets into sport mode. One more issue more frequently happening since a week or so, lack of power while accelerator pressed. Could be for 1 to 4 seconds inspite of pressing the accelerator the engine doesn"t get the power. Just sometime ago while driving in Thane I experienced it, as I lost power I surpressed the clutch and tried to press the accelerator to the floor but still I didn"t get any response, no acceleration! Really disappointed with such issues in such an expensive vehicle and that too within couple of months of buying it. Spoke with the service centre in Thane, they have assured me that it must be a minor issue with the software. And they have given me a slot for Monday to upgrade the software. Mind you during the first servicing they had done quite a few tweaks and also a software upgrade. Anyway, I"ll have my fingers crossed and hope it gets resolved. Anyone out there facing this issue? Thanks!

    Tata harrier was a love at first sight though, I couldn't stop myself from seeing other options available in the market.1.I being almost 6 ft had difficulty in head room in other competitors like creta and kia, Whereas tata offers the maximum headroom.2.Harrier feels like an real suv, Whereas kia and creta are not a match to the macho feel of suv.3.Cruising through rough road and on high speed feels very easy and not even a bit stressful.4.Road grip and safety feeling is stunning.5.Feel like doing more road trips with family.Especially kids enjoying panoramic sun roof.Ultimately a 10 on 10 rating for the value proposition we are getting.Never mind people saying negative about indian/tata brand just give it a try to know its a beauty and beast in one!!superb and i recommend strongly for the harrier!!.

    I would say this is out of the league. A bit on the expensive side but completely justifiable. A complete SUV with all the safety features. The top-end is a couple of lakhs costlier than the top-end of Seltos and Creta. But after taking a test drive I realized it is offering a lot more in those couple of extra lakhs. Space is enormous inside and you feel extremely comfortable even in the back seat. Three people can sit a lot comfortably when compared to KIA Seltos and Creta which are a bit congested if you are well built and tall. It looks very stylish and has more ground clearance. It is a complete SUV .It also offers JBL speakers in the top end.

    Am a proud owner of Tata Harrier Automatic and bought it replacing my Honda City IVtec after 5 years of use. After test driving Compass, Innova Crysta finally I selected Harrier and I realise that the decision was absolutely right. Tourque convertor is working excellent with the Kryotec engine and tata engineers did an excellent work. Checked also the different ESP modes and working just fine. Only draw back what I see is the lack of disc break at the rear, but breaking is just fine. First service done at 1200 km, I can see improvements in the Tata service, may be after Covid issues it will become okay.
