Jeep Compass vs Tata Harrier – Drag Race

The team has the Compass and Harrier side-by-side. For the drag race, they decide to turn the AC OFF, Traction Control OFF (only in Compass) and put the SUVs in their sportiest settings. For the first round, the Compass takes the lead and stays ahead through the entire duration of the race. The Harrier stood no chance. Similar results followed in the subsequent rounds. The automatic transmission of the Harrier prevented the engine to put all the power onto the wheels.

In order to maintain the consistency of the results, the drivers were swapped after 2 rounds. As the YouTuber drove the Harrier, the start was much closer but the Compass eventually overtook it and emerged as an undisputed winner. Even after toggling with the drive modes, the results were convincingly in favour of the American carmaker.

In terms of the engine specifications, there is nothing to choose between the two. They both come powered by the same Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine developing 170 PS and 350 Nm of peak power and torque.
