Tata Motors recently updated the Harrier based on the feedback received from media experts and customers. The changes include a new software R10.X, finely tuned steering, better NVH levels and optimized clutch. According to fresh media report, the SUV will soon get a sunroof as an optional fitment. Price will be revealed in coming days.
Priced from Rs 12.99 lakh to Rs 16.75 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Tata Harrier takes on multiple products including Hyundai Creta, Jeep Compass, Mahindra XUV500, the newly-launched MG Hector and the upcoming Kia Seltos. While all its rivals offer sunroof, the Harrier misses out on it.
The carmaker recently announced that the Tata Harrier crossed over 10,000 sales mark in India. In order to celebrate the occasion, the company rolled out two new dual-tone colours – Calisto Copper and Orcus White – on the top-end XZ trim. Priced at Rs 16.76 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the dual-tone variant is around Rs 20,000 more expensive than the single shade model.
The Harrier SUV lineup will soon receive a 170bhp, 2.0L diesel engine along with a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission, sourced from Hyundai. The new oil burner will meet the upcoming BS6 emission norms. The carmaker will also introduce a 1.6L turbocharged petrol engine to the Harrier lineup.
Tata has already confirmed that it will bring in the 7-seater version of the Harrier by the end of this year. Called Tata Buzzard, the 7-seater SUV had its world premiere at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. In India; however, the vehicle will come with a different nameplate.
