    Hyundai Creta Front View


    If you have been in the market for a mid-sized SUV, you are sure to be spoilt for choices now more than ever. These five-seater SUVs are in huge demand and are selling faster than hotcakes. Where the Hyundai Creta had been a favourite choice, you now have the Kia Seltos, Nissan Kicks, and Renault Captur. Meanwhile, moving a segment above, options range from the Tata Harrier, Mahindra XUV500, and MG Hector to the Jeep Compass and Volkswagen T-Roc.

    In this report, we take a look at the interior dimension of two prominent SUVs you could buy in the price bracket of Rs 10-20 lakh. On one hand, we have the Tata Harrier – a handsome looking brute from Tata’s stable. On the other, the new-gen Creta aims for the kill with its updated cabin and many segment-first features.So,let the fight begin.

    Front Cabin Space

    The Creta impressed us with its high-quality,upmarket cabin anda wide touchscreen on the cascading centre console. On the other hand, the Harrier’s cabin makes clever use of wooden and brushed silver inserts. The seats in both the SUVs are large and supportive and also get an electronic adjustment for the driver, but the Hyundaiadditionally offers cooled seats. There’s a digital-analogue combination for driver’s display in both.

    Owing to the larger exterior dimensions, the Harrier has got more shoulder room and a slightly taller headroom too (as can be seen in the table below). But the difference isn’t something to brag about as the Creta’s cabin isn’t cramped by any standards. And thanks to the taller ride height, getting in the Harrier is more of a ‘hop on’ compared to the car-like ingress of the Creta.

    Rear Cabin Space

    Similar to the front, the ingress for the back seat in the Harrier is more than that in the Creta. The shoulder room and headroom at the back are closely matched between the two with a difference of mere 2mm in favour of the Harrier. And the dimension of the seats is also slightly larger in the Tata. But the Creta gets a nearly flat floor at the back with negligible centre tunnel and provision for air filter which the Harrier currently misses out on. When it comes to seating comfort, the Harrier provides more under-thigh support and better support for your back along with a larger headrest. Seating three-abreast wouldn’t be an issue in either of the two, but it would be more comfortable in the Harrier compared to the Creta.

    Boot Space

    Looking at the dimensions, the Harrier’s cargo bay is much wider and has more length than what you get in the Creta. But it has a higher loading lip too while the Creta offers a lower loading-lip height, easing the hauling in heavy baggage.

    With the Harrier winning the dimension strife here, the Creta isn’t exactly a washout. It offers more features than the Harrier and carries a smaller price tag too. Also, you get more powertrain choices with the Hyundai. But the Harrier is larger, more powerful and looks much better than the new Creta.
