Tata Motors had launched the Harrier 5-seater premium SUV in India earlier this year. The SUV has been receiving a positive response from buyers with over 10,000 units delivered over the period of 6-7 months. The SUV directly rivals the Jeep Compass, Mahindra XUV500 and the recently launched MG Hector. In order to keep the sales momentum, Tata Motors will soon launch a dark edition (or Black Edition) in the Indian market.
The Tata Harrier Dark Edition won’t receive significant changes, though it will have come with blackened treatment inside out. It will receive Atlas Black exterior scheme, 17-inch black-finished alloys, special Dark badge, black door handles, grey headlamp bezels and skid plates finished in black.
