Voted for the overall sorted package!!

Jeep Compass.

I would happily put my money on Compass. As Harrier and Hexa are still far from niggles free state and reliability is still a concern.

Harrier would be my second choice. However, I would wait till second generation as GTO suggested.

Cheers!

SUV = 4x4 in my books. So right away the Harrier and Creta are out of the poll. I agree that majority won't buy this, but manufacturers should at least have it as an option.

After having a go in the Harrier, I didn't find it differentiating enough over regular hatchbacks on stills. Further any appeal remaining was gone once I saw the niggles, panel gaps, fit and finish.

Yes, the Compass is expensive and the Trailhawk even more so, but suddenly it seems to offer a lot more value for my $$$. The least TATA should have done is offer a 4x4 in their so called 'SUV'.

TATA Hexa & Harrier are in No. 1 position for me and I voted for Hexa over Harrier as only it has an AUTO box. And to add, the TBHP official review of Harrier is not giving me enough confidence to put my money.
No. 3 is occupied by XUV 5oo. This is a very close contender along with the 2 on 1st spot. Why this was considered below? The riding comfort is not up to Hexa (Harrier, I do not have an experience) and price wise, both are almost in same territory.
No. 4 is Compass - it is a very distant contender; no where close to XUV. I love the car to the core, I drove it and liked it and was sad at the same time as it is a Fiat car. I am skeptical on the future of Fiat in India and hence have lost the confidence in the brand as I am not sure if they can support me when I am in a problematic situation. This is purely my observation and feeling, no offence meant to any owners. I will own a Compass only if it is gifted to me or if they improve their presence in India. I loved Fiat cars, I didn't have money to buy Linea 10 years back when I bought the Accent and I have recommended Punto to 2 very close friends who have thanked me in-numerous times. However, the current situation is not confidence inspiring.
Hyundai Creta - too pricey for what it offers.
Renault Duster - too old and hear some issue with Renault.
Mahindra Scorpio - riding & driving comfort. This was tested to a great extended while my sister bought XUV5oo.

Hexa XZA from the current options.

If I am in the market to buy one I would wait for Harrier AT or Seltos AT or Compass AT diesel variant.

Interesting observation here. Quite surprised, to be honest. I expected TATA to give the Harrier the SUV DNA at the very least, given that they expect this to be a Safari successor.

Hexa takes No.1 spot, because of the fantastic TC gearbox, and the overall packaging and features on offer.

As for second, both the Creta and XUV500 offer lots of features, but the XUV500 takes my No.2 for offering more interior space, although the fit and finish and interior quality are nowhere near Creta levels.

The compass is a great car, one that would please enthusiasts very easily, but I do not believe that the compass has much to offer to justify its 25lac+ price tag on the road. Maybe it's because I prioritise interior space before any "enthusiastic engines and handling", and the rear seat felt a cramped compared to the Harrier and the XUV.

If the Limited Plus was 20-21 lacs on road, maybe around 50k more than what the Hector costs, it's easily justifiable, but 25+? No.
