The Tata Harrier 7-seater will be more powerful than its 5-seater version.
Tata Motors is gearing up to launch its much-awaited Harrier premium SUV in India early next year. The carmaker confirmed that it will also bring in the 7-seater version of the Tata Harrier in couple of years. According to a fresh media report, the home-grown carmaker will unveil the Tata Harrier 7 seater SUV (codenamed Tata H7X) at the 2020 Delhi Auto Expo in February. The launch is likely to follow in the same year.
Prior to its global debut, the carmaker has already started testing the SUV prototype in the country. Tata Harrier 7 seater SUV will be the company’s flagship model packed with a more powerful Kryotec 2.0L, four-cylinder diesel. Inspired from Cryogenic rocket engine, the new BS6-ready oil burner has been tuned for generating two different power outputs – 140bhp and 170bhp.

While the 140bhp version will be used for the Harrier 5-seater model, the 7-seater version will get the more powerful 170bhp unit. Transmissions are likely to be carried over from the Harrier 5-seater – i.e. a 6-speed manual and a Hyundai-sourced 6-speed torque convertor automatic. The Tata Harrier 7 seater is likely to offer multi-drive modes coupled with terrain response system. Read: Tata Harrier – 10 Interesting Facts
