Where the Creta is available with both petrol and diesel engines, the Harrier is a diesel-only offering

Hyundai launched the second-gen Creta at prices ranging from Rs 9.99 lakh to Rs 17.20 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). At this price, it not only takes on the Kia Seltos but also competes with some variants of the Tata Harrier and the MG Hector. So, let’s pit the Creta against the bigger Harrier and find out which of the two SUVs you should pick. 

Before diving into the details, let’s take a look at the dimensions of the two SUVs. 

 

2020 Hyundai Creta

2020 Tata Harrier

Length

4300mm

4598mm (+298mm)

Width

1790mm

1894mm (+104mm)

Height

1635mm

1706mm (+71mm)

Wheelbase

2610mm

2741mm (+131mm)

Boot Space

433L

425L (-8L)

  • The Harrier is significantly longer, wider and taller than the Creta. It also has a longer wheelbase but a slightly smaller boot space. 
  • As a result, the Harrier has better road presence and more space inside. 
  • This is not surprising since the Creta is a compact SUV whereas the Harrier belongs to the mid-size SUV segment.

Hyundai Creta

Engine: Since the Harrier is a diesel-only offering, we will consider only the diesel engine of the Creta.

6-speed MT/6-speed AT

Fuel Economy

21.4kmpl/18.5kmpl

16.35kmpl/ 14.63kmpl

  • The Harrier being a larger SUV also gets a bigger and more powerful engine. It makes 55PS and 100Nm more than the Creta’s 1.5-litre unit.
  • Both the SUVs are offered with a 6-speed MT as standard with an optional 6-speed torque converter automatic. 
  • The Hyundai being smaller and powered by a relatively smaller engine returns around 5kmpl more than the Tata
