    The Kia Seltos SUV is the very first product from South Korean carmaker Kia, which will start its business in the vast auto industry of India, starting with the Seltos. The Seltos is a stylish, premium and global quality compact SUV that is based on the Kia SP Concept SUV which had its world premiere at the 2018 Indian Auto Expo.

    The Tata Harrier is a highly popular new SUV from the house of homegrown auto giant Tata Motors. It is a mid-size SUV and is highly praised for its superior quality, premium looks, features, and aggressive pricing. The Harrier is based on the Omega platform of the Tata Motors-owned Jaguar Land Rover's D8 architecture and packs in and an array of premium features and latest techs for superb off-roading performance.

    Here we are pitching the upcoming Kia Seltos against the Tata Harrier: 


    Kia Seltos vs Tata Harrier Dimensions Comparison?


    Dimensions Comparison
      Seltos  Harrier
    Length (mm) 4315 4598

    Height  (mm) 1620 1706
    Wheelbase (mm) 2610 2741
    Ground Clearance (mm) 190 200

    As the Harrier is a mid-size SUV and the Seltos is a compact SUV, the difference in their respective dimensions is thus, very clear. The Seltos is smaller than the Harrier in all aspects. The Harrier also has a longer wheelbase, which means a roomier interior.

    Kia Seltos vs Tata Harrier Powertrain Comparison:

    As the Tata Harrier is a diesel-only model, we are comparing its mechanical specs with only Kia Seltos’ diesel powertrain option, while the Seltos will be also available in the petrol version.

    Diesel Engine Specs
      Seltos  Harrier
    Engine Displacement 1.5 L 2.0 L
    Fuel Type Diesel Diesel
    Max Power 115 bhp 138 bhp
    Torque 250 NM 305 NM
    Transmission 6 Speed MT / AT 6 Speed MT

    Seltos vs Harrier Diesel Comparison

    The Seltos will get powered by a 1.5L oil burner, while the Harrier packs a larger and more powerful Fiat sourced acclaimed diesel motor. Thus, the Harrier offers more power and torque figures than the upcoming Seltos’ diesel. However, as the Seltos is smaller than the Harrier, it might make up for its lacking power and its performance might not feel much weaker as compared to the Harrier.


    Kia Seltos vs Tata Harrier Price Comparison:


    Kia Seltos (expected price)

    Tata Harrier (Ex-Showroom Price)

    Rs. 11 lakhs – Rs. 17 lakhs

    Rs. 13 lakhs – Rs. 16.8 lakhs

    The Tata Harrier is a larger and high quality, sporty premium SUV model, but it's base model is costlier than the base expected to start price of the Seltos’ diesel, although we can’t say this at this point of time. On the other hand, the top-end trim of the Harrier is also lesser than the expected tag of the top-end Seltos.
