Owing to increasing competition, and the latest of cars coming with an electric sunroof to lure customers, Tata Motors is now offering the Harrier SUV with sunroof as an optional accessory. This sunroof will be sourced and installed by the company Webasto, and has been priced at INR 95,100 with additional installation charges. By size, if MG Hector is considered as competition, it comes with a large panoramic sunroof which will remain unbeatable.
The electric sunroof which will be on offer can also be installed by existing Tata Harrier owners. The brand has sold more than 10,000 Harrier SUVs in the Indian market. Customers can have this fixed at the Tata Motors dealership, and don’t have to visit a separate Webasto outlet.
H-300 is the model number of the electric sunroof on offer. Webasto has been developing sunroof panels for the car industry for over 60 years and on the Tata Harrier, it will come with 2 year warranty from the date of installation. The sunroof makes use of tinted Venus glass which will protect the cabin from UV radiation and also allow for a brighter cabin without increasing the cabin temparature much. It can be used electrically to slide / retract to allow for fresh air in the cabin of the Harrier.
The Harrier SUV from Tata Motors is powered by a 1956cc, 4-cylinder, turbocharged, diesel engine which has a 4-cylinder layout and produces 140 PS of power and 350 Nm of torque. The engine is sourced from the Jeep Compass and is also seen on the MG Hector, and it pumps 170 PS on both these competing cars. The BSVI compliant model of the Harrier is expected to have the power output increased to 170 PS. The 7-seater Buzzard variant of the Harrier will also be introduced towards the end of this year and has been spotted on testing numerous times. The main talking point of the Harrier however has been the Land Rover D8 architecture which it has been based upon.
