Tata Motors has dropped two teasers of the Harrier dual-tone on social media saying that it’s “coming soon”. The company had launched the Harrier single-tone in January this year.
Apparently, the Tata Harrier will be sold in two dual-tone exterior colour schemes. One will have a white body with a black roof and the other will have an orange body with a black roof. The white and orange shades in single-tone are called Orcus White and Calisto Copper respectively. Dealer-level customs have already offered a dual-tone option for a while now.
The Tata Harrier sits on a modified version of Jaguar Land Rover’s D8 platform called Omega-Arc. The most radically designed Tata Motors model ever is classified as a C-SUV like the Jeep Compass and is strictly a five-seater. A 7-seat version with a different name is already in the works, and it was previewed by the Tata Buzzard Geneva Edition in March.
On the outside, the Tata Harrier features multi-tier front light setup comprising ultra-slim, dual-function LED DRLs, Xenon HID projector headlamps and fog lamps with cornering function, 17-inch alloy wheels, sleek LED tail lamps with a piano black finisher and puddle lamps with logo projection.
Interior highlights include Benecke-Kaliko Oak Brown perforated leather seat upholstery and door pad inserts, 8.8-inch Floating Island touchscreen infotainment system, 9-speaker JBL sound system with amplifier and semi-digital instrument cluster. On the safety front, the compact SUV comes equipped with six airbags, ESP, reverse parking camera, Perimetric Alarm System and more.
The Tata Harrier is powered by a 2.0-litre diesel engine that develops 140 PS at 3,750 rpm and 350 Nm of torque at 1,750-2,500 rpm. 6-speed manual transmission and FWD drivetrain layout are standard. A more powerful, 170 PS/350 Nm version of the 2.0-litre diesel engine and 6-speed automatic transmission are expected to be introduced as options in the future. Prices range from INR 13.00-16.56 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
