Tata Harrier SUV price hiked by INR 35,000

Written by Nizam Shaikh

In recent news, we reported that the Tata Harrier has been spotted testing with a BSVI compliant engine and now, prices of the Harrier have been increased. This is the first time that the SUV is seeing the price hike and the reason behind this is that the introductory price period on the car has ended and hence the prices have been revised.

The variant wise revised pricing on the SUV is given below:-
Variant Old Price Hike New Price
XE INR 12.70 Lakh INR 30,000 INR 13.00 Lakh
XM INR 13.75 Lakh INR 31,000 INR 14.06 Lakh
XT INR 14.95 Lakh INR 30,000 INR 15.25 Lakh
XZ INR 16.21 Lakh INR 35,000 INR 16.56 Lakh
All prices indicated are ex-showroom.

The Tata Harrier features a bumper mounted projector headlamp and a dual function LED daytime running light, the Harrier gets 3D LED tail lamps with piano black finishers, a shark fin antenna on top and 17-inch alloy wheels for the perfect SUV stance. On the interiors, it gets an oak finish on the dashboard and leather upholstery along with leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob. The SUV gets a touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone connectivity features and steering wheel integrated controls.

The Tata Harrier is powered by a Land Rover D8 architecture derived Kryotec 1956 cc 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine that produces 140 PS of power and 350 Nm of torque coupled to a 6-speed manual gearbox. On the higher-spec variants, it has three drive modes and three terrain response modes for the traction control.

Its competition, the MG Hector is only days away from the launch and the Harrier has done better in number so far as compared to the other competitors – Jeep Compass and the XUV500. If the MG Hector is priced competitively the Harrier will be taking a hit as the SUV comes with a lot of first-in-segment features, a petrol mild-hybrid engine, an automatic transmission, a larger touch screen infotainment, an eSIM connectivity feature, etc., which the Harrier misses out on.

The Harrier’s new BSVI engine, which is currently in the test phase is expected to produce 30 PS more power than the current 2.0-litre engine, which is rated at 140 PS of power and 350 Nm of torque. The new BSVI engine which is likely to produce 170 PS of power is expected to get an automatic transmission. The new Jeep Compass Trailhawk is expected to employ the same above mentioned engine and comes with a 9-speed automatic transmission. If and when the Harrier is updated with the new BSVI compliant engine and an automatic gearbox, the SUV will give a tough fight to its latest competitor the MG hector.
