The price difference can be attributed to the fact that the Hyundai Creta comes with a 1.5L diesel motor, which generates 115 PS of maximum power, along with 250 Nm of peak torque, whereas Tata has equipped the Harrier with FCA-sourced 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel engine that puts out 170 PS of power and 350 Nm torque.
Transmission duties on both the cars are handled by a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard, while an automatic transmission is optional with both of them. Interestingly, the Harrier recently received a new 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox, which is actually sourced from Hyundai.
