Except for the few changes, the Tata Harrier’s production model looks largely identical to the H5X concept.
At the 2018 Auto Expo, Tata Motors surprised visitors with an exciting H5X SUV concept. The concept looked futuristic, showcasing Tata’s new IMPACT 2.0 Design philosophy. Everyone expecting production model to carry significantly toned down design; however, Tata officials clearly stated that the final design has been finalised and the production model will share close to 80% of H5X design.
Now, the final production-ready images of the Tata Harrier – a production name for H5X concept – are out. We have a clear idea about the difference between the production & concept models. So, what has changed? Frankly, at the first glance it is quite difficult to tell the difference between the two. The production model looks largely similar to the concept, though there are some changes made to the design. Read – Tata Harrier’s Production Start – Details Inside
While the overall profile and design of the Harrier looks exactly identical to the concept, the front has received subtle changes. The grille is now slightly broader, and the lower bumper has also been revised. The skid plate design is all new, while the air-intakes are in mesh design. There is a newly designed air-dam positioned right between the upper grille and lower bumper, which merges neatly with the black lower cladding. While the two-part grille is retained, the design of the headlight and fog lamp has been revised.
The side profile has received minimal changes in the form of new ORVMs and alloy wheels. While the concept has sleeker ORVMs, the production model gets bigger wing mirrors. Moreover, the concept had larger 22-inch wheels. The production ready model is likely to have 18-19-inch wheels with different design. Also See – Tata Harrier Vs Jeep Compass
The rear design also witnessed subtle changes and it looks aggressive in production model as well. The company has toned down the design, and it now has more conventional boot-lid. The lower bumper design and cladding is similar to the concept model. In fact, the tail-light design is retained with minor tweaks. The sloping roofline, wider C-pillar and roof-integrated spoiler gives it an aggressive profile.
