Production-Spec Tata H5X To Be Christened Harrier; To Arrive in 2019

Added in: News

The Tata H5X SUV, which was first showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo in Delhi, is expected to arrive sometime in 2019. But will it be called? Tata Motors’ is known to internally codename its products after birds and the H5X is no different, at least that’s what the reports suggest. A recent report indicates that the Tata H5X has been internally codenamed as the ‘Harrier’. However, unlike previous models, Tata Motors may retain the tag even as the market name. The car maker will reportedly make an announcement in the coming weeks.

But there’s a small roadblock. Toyota already has a product called the Harrier in select global markets and thus Tata Motors will most likely not be able to use that name in those countries. That, however, should not be an issue in India.

Details reading the engine specifications remain unknown at the moment although the upcoming Tata H5X SUV is expected to source power from a Fiat sourced 2.0-litre four cylinder engine. This 140 hp diesel motor is the same unit seen on one of it’s rivals, the Jeep Compass. Transmission options on the model could include a six speed manual unit and a nine speed ZF automatic unit. A 4WD system could also be offered with the H5X.

As reported earlier, the H5X SUV will be launched in India during Q2, 2019 while the 45X premium hatchback will be launched in India in H2, 2019.
