Tucson because its more reliable also diesel with 8 speed auto is amazing.

Compass has too many issues hence not recommended.

That being said Tucson looks dated and not 30 lakh INR SUV.

So neither gets overall recommend. Instead look into pre owned segment or increase budget to include Fortuner or decrease budget and get XUV 700.

Hi pms, having test driven both Tucson and Compass, the head is in favor of the Tucson and the heart is with the Compass.

The Tucson is more spacious, has a bigger boot, is more reliable, and cheaper to buy and own. It's a no brainer in either GLS or GL(O) trim.

The Compass on the other hand looks more handsome, has better quality interiors, and more feel-good features.

It comes down to the type of personal statement you want to make.

If you are an out and out family man with a corporate/executive bent of mind, please consider the Tucson. But if you are more young at heart with a rebellious/adventurous streak, the Compass would be better suited.

I can't vote yet, but my vote will go for Tucson. I recently purchased a Tucson GLS 2WD Diesel in Bangalore, just clocked 2500Kms in the past 3 weeks, and thoroughly enjoying the car, coming from a 6-year-old Verna Petrol AT.

It is evident from all the comments on this thread that if you were to make the decision by just the facts, the Tucson wins. Hyundai's trust, the technical specifications of the Tucson, the fit and finish, the excellent service+warranty options - all lead to Tucson.

If you put all the facts aside, your decision will solely be based on the looks. Do you like the look of the Tucson or the Compass? What does your family think? You (and your family) are going to live with this car for 7-8 years, so you'll have to think about this.


All the best with your purchase!

I vote for Tucson out of the two (just overall better package) but would really encourage you to wait for facelift Tiguan and the new generation Tucson. That said, I collated few dimensions of similar segment cars (you can ignore the City as it gives me a good reference point since I own it) which I posted on Tiguan specific thread here (VW to launch Tiguan 5-seater SUV in 2021)

For ease, just sharing the table here:

Just check if you are still able to book the current generation Tucson. We have booked the Elantra and they say they are doubtful of manufacturing it. We might not get it at all. New generation probably will be a little more expensive. For us, new Gen Elantra is a big no for its exterior styling

I was able to book and my vehicle is already here. It took 10 days for the vehicle to come.

Dealer did mention that they donít manufacture new stock in Dec. they ask all dealers on the plan and only manufacture those. When I booked, he showed me number of vehicles available in each Color (as per an email from Hyundai) and he said no more will be made till end of this year

No issues on the availability of Tucson. New gen Tucson is expected mid 2022 as per my SA, but he isn't so sure about it.

Thanks a lot for the overwhelming responses! Poll results show a clear indication towards Tucson. I have decided to wait a bit, couple more months and meanwhile check on the new Tiguan. As usual heart is inclined towards Compass and head to Tucson. I dont see much follow up for Tucson whereas I get multiple calls for Alcazar booking for a TD I took 2 months back!

On the other hand Jeep SA (from KHT Prime dealership) has been very pro-active and following up with me every week. When I informed him about the issues related to Compass reported on various forums, he is of the opinion that their dealership has minimal complaints as they do TD of every new vehicle for 20-30Kms to detect & rectify any issues before delivery. Sounded not so convincing and Jeep after sales experience is still a grey area.

To top it all SA mentioned they are going to increase prices by 40K for the top trims, it clearly shows the monopoly. There is no clear competition for Compass at the moment and that whole 25-40 Lacs range has hardly any vehicles once you start the search. On one side of spectrum you have the problem of plenty and other side hardly any

Skoda Karoq could have been a good competitor. Looking forward to check on the Tiguan now and take a decision in couple of months.

I am in the same boat, had the urge to splurge and upgrade to premium car upto 40L. I had created a seperate thread on this topic. My heart was set on Compass but would have had to compromise on space and somewhat slow gearbox. Upon suggestions from fellow bhpians I am going to wait for new Tucson, Kodiaq and Jeep Meridian, fingers crossed.

I wanted an AWD at around 30 lacs budget.
So, the only options were Compass, Tucson, XUV7OO and Isuzu D-Max V-Cross.

Did not consider Tiguan as it is Petrol and costs significantly more than the above.
Did not wish to wait for the new Tucson as it is at least 6 months away and I could not wait that long.

XUV7OO was rejected due to long waiting period.
Isuzu was rejected as it is too big.

Test drove Compass and Tucson.
While interiors of Compass are definitely better than Tucson, I did not feel that the interiors of Tucson were a letdown or too old/boring.
However, in terms of internal space Compass felt small and a segment lower than Tucson.

So, have booked the Tucson.

Here are my findings

1. Engine Drivability - Tucson Diesel
2. Build quality - Compass
3. Handling - Compass
4. Ride quality - Tucson at low speeds
5. Ergonomics - Compass
6. Space - Tucson
7. ASS - Tucson
8. Reliability - Tucson except recent engine fire issues across the globe on petrol version
9. Safety - Compass

Final verdict - Compass is the better one out of two
