Tata Harrier will be based on Tata’s new-generation IMPACT Design 2.0 philosophy.
Tata Harrier SUV is slated to launch in India early next year. Official bookings for the vehicle have already begun across the nation. The SUV, which is currently in its final testing phase, recently went through the handling test at the NATRAX test track near Indore. For people not in the know, NATRAX is the Asia’s largest testing facility specialized for vehicles dynamics.
Tata claims that it has worked for delivering “best-in-class ride and handling performance”. The Tata Harrier also proved its dynamism during tough manoeuvres in the double lane change test and fish hook test. The SUV retained road grip and didn’t roll over during both the tests.
