Tata Harrier, the homegrown carmakers’s flagship product, has got off to a great start worrying several of its rivals. In February 2019, the company retailed a total of 1449 units of the Harrier, and the numbers are even more impressive in March 2019. A total of 2,492 units of the Tata Harrier were rolled out in the month, which makes it the third best-selling above 4-metre SUV in India.

The Harrier surely has proven to be a crowd puller for the carmaker, and a lot of credit goes to its unique design, Land Rover’s D8 Architecture and spaciousness. And we can only hope sales numbers to go up after Tata Motors brings in its automatic and AWD (all-wheel drive) versions which are rumored to be under development. For people not in the know, Tata Motors is also working on a 7-seater version of the car, debuted as Tata Buzzard at the Geneva Motor Show, to attract more buyers. The Harrier 7-Seater version will be called Tata Cassini.
Tata Harrier derives its power from the Fiat sourced 2.0-litre diesel engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. It’s the same engine that does duty in the Jeep Compass, though the one on the Harrier is a detuned version as it churns out 138bhp and 350Nm. With the Cassini, however, the maximum power and torque figures will be similar to the Compass. Also, the Cassini will get a 6-speed automatic transmission sourced from Hyundai.
