Just teased recently, Tata Motors has now made it official as a celebration for the flagship SUV crossing 10,000 customers since its launch in January 2019. Tata Motors has launched dual-tone colour options on the Harrier at a premium of INR 20,000 on the ex-showroom price.
The dual-tone colour options will be available only on the top-spec XZ variant and the colours are:-
- Calisto Copper
- Orcus White
Both the colours will now receive an option of a black contrast roof to enhance the look of the Harrier SUV. The Harrier range starts at INR 12.99 lakhs ex-showroom, Delhi. The standard version of the XZ variant costs INR 16,55,755 ex-showroom, Delhi and the new dual-tone is priced at INR 16,75,755 ex-showroom, Delhi.
The Tata Harrier is built on the OMEGARC platform derived from the Land Rover D8 and the engine is powered by an FCA sourced, 1956cc, 4-cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine that produces 140 PS of power and 350 Nm of torque coupled to a 6-speed manual gearbox. The top-end variants get drive modes and advanced Terrain Response Modes to tackle off-road conditions. The car is likely to be updated in the engine department and will soon receive a BSVI standard engine. The new update could also be a good time for the brand to introduce an automatic gearbox which they are likely to source from Hyundai.
In related news, it is also being speculated a larger 7-seater version of the Harrier called the Buzzard, which has been spied testing in a fully camouflaged avatar, is slated for a launch soon. The buzzard is likely to be powered by the same engine but could get BSVI updates from the day of its launch.
The exterior dimensions on the Harrier measure in at 4598mm in length, 1895mm in width, 1706mm in height and a wheelbase of 2741mm. The major differentiating factor which is the exterior dimensions of the SUV is likely to be in its length and height. The Buzzard is expected to be 4661mm in length, 63mm longer and 1786mm in height, 80mm taller than the Harrier.
In terms of competition, the Harrier rivals other SUVs like the MG Hector, Mahindra XUV500, Jeep Compass, etc.
