You should wait for the Skoda Karoq & checkout the same. Ticks most of your boxes. Their after sales is also changing with good maintenance packages.

I am more or less convinced that for a prospective buyer of a mid-range SUV in <20L range, it is best to wait till 2020 if possible as we will have many more options available apart from the Creta and Compass.

Kia SP - So far, this looks to be extremely promising. Has the X-factor and some cool features to go with.

Honda HRV - Though Honda has not officially announced it for India, it looks very likely. I am not sure if they will get the current facelift in 2019 or the new model in 2020 or later. I am betting Honda will launch it in 2019. This is my preferred option as of now as it seems to be having the quality which Honda was once renowned for. Pricing might be an issue though as Honda might price this alongside Compass which will not be value for money

VW T-Cross - Another exciting launch to watch out. Seems to have the right SUV-ish looks and might get a good turbo-petrol motor.

Tata Harrier - Seems to have the looks and all the bells-and-whistles but I am personally not too excited as I don't have trust on Tata's reliability and A.S.S


I think the Skoda karoq will not be coming to India and even if it comes, it will be well above 20L

Still torn between the 2.
Multiple TDs & discussions with family, friends and advice on TBHP, I have decide on not compromising on the safety of 6 airbags.

Hence the Ecosport Titanium+ AT is what this is going to be. Scouting for deals now!

As a fellow Titanium + AT owner, i would like to mention that the FE of a petrol AT will not be great in Mumbai's horrendous traffic. I am currently managing a city mileage of around 7 and around 11-12 on the highway. I have clocked 4500 km's as of now.

The ride quality is harsh on the 17 inch, and should improve on the 16 inch'ers. As mentioned by you, its loaded with features and is a pleasure to own as well.

Thanks for that heads up. I was expecting the ecosport to give me 9-10 since 7 is what was said for the larger creta AT. Anyways as of now there arent too many options meeting my criteria - so will have to live with it. With fuel prices sky rocketing the way it is
