Our Tata Harrier vs Jeep Compass comparison reviews the design, specs, mileage, interior and other details of the two SUVs
The Jeep Compass has been one of the most successful world-class premium SUVs on sale in our country. The FCA-built 5-seater SUV has been so popular that it has not only attracted some buyers away from the cheaper Hyundai Creta but has also stolen some of the limelight from the more premium and more powerful Jeep Compass. But all this could soon stop with the launch of a new flagship product from Tata Motors.
Dubbed as the Tata Harrier, the new SUV will be the production-spec H5X concept SUV that was showcased at the Auto Expo 2018 earlier this year. While it’s for sure that the new model will be a tad costlier than the Hyundai Creta, we’re quite sure it would be cost lesser than the Jeep Compass. Hence, it could end up becoming a strong rival to the Jeep model.
Here’s our Tata Harrier vs Jeep Compass comparison review to help you find out a winner between these two models by their prices, specifications, mileage, dimensions, etc. Tata Harrier vs Jeep Compass Price Comparison Model Price Range (ex-showroom) Jeep Compass INR 15.39 – 22.89 Lakh (ex-showroom) Tata Harrier Rs 13 lakh – 18 lakh (approx) The new flagship SUV from Tata Motors is likely to cost significantly lesser than the Jeep Compass. In comparison to the latter’s starting price of INR 15.39 lakh, the Harrier could cost just INR 13 lakh.
The top-end version of the latest Tata SUV should cost no more than INR 18 lakh. In comparison, the fully loaded version of the Jeep Compass costs INR 22.89 lakh. Hence, the H5X-based model should have a clear advantage in this aspect. While it’s true that the Tata Harrier might miss out on a four-wheel-drive option and might even fail to offer the high fit and finish of the Compass, it’s JLR-sourced underpinnings should give it a clear advantage. Even the engine for the Harrier will be the same as that of the Compass but in a slightly lower state of tune.
While the new Tata flagship might end up missing out on some features that the Compass offers, it will still provide a higher value for money. Hence, this means that the new model from Tata Motors could be a worthy alternative to all those Jeep Compass buyers that want a fresher model that offers maximum bang for the buck. The Harrier’s JLR-based platform and lower price, along with the FCA-sourced 2.0-litre engine, should make it come across as a better value for money than the Compass. The upcoming model easily wins the first round of our Tata Harrier vs Jeep Compass comparison.
