Tata Motors has added a new XZS trim level for its popular SUV offering, Harrier. Prices for this variant range from INR 19.99 lakh to INR 21.99 lakh (ex-showroom). Hence, the XZS bridges the gap between XZ and top-spec XZ+ trims. Customers can get this trim in both a manual and an automatic gearbox option. There’s good news for those looking for the Dark Edition guise, as this trim gets that option too.
XZS trim makes sense for someone looking to have more features above the XZ trim but not willing to pay for the XZ+ trim. Interestingly, this waiting period, too, will get sorted. Currently, almost all the variants have an average waiting time of 10 weeks. And with the new XZS trim, Tata Motor will target to deliver the car 30 days from the date of booking. Tata Harrier is already one of the top picks amongst the customers looking for an SUV in the 20-lakh budget. And this new trim will further appeal to a wider range of audiences.
What’s On Offer?
The current price difference between the XZ and XZ+ trim is close to 1.6 lakh. Thus, Tata Motors needed to close this gap with a new trim level. Shared features with top-spec XZ+ include 17-inch dual-tone alloy wheels, a 6-way electrically-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support, a panoramic sunroof, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
Other highlight features include LED DRLs and projector headlamps, an 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 7-inch TFT instrument cluster, a JBL sound system, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, an air purifier, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob, and automatic climate control.
In terms of safety as well, Tata Motors is never a letdown. And for this trim, the customer will benefit from 6 airbags, hill descent control, off-road ABS, traction control, cruise control, ESC and hill-hold control, and rain-sensing wipers. Compared with the top-spec model, it misses features including ventilated seats and iRA connected car technology.
