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.

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
