The Tata Harrier has to be one of the best vehicles to ever roll out of a homegrown carmaker’s production line. It is adored by many among the Indian car fraternity. In a short period of time, the Harrier has risen to the top of many people’s lists. The car’s road presence makes you feel like you’re driving a proper SUV. As a result, many Indians choose the Harrier. And now, reports suggest Tata could soon roll out another variant of the Harrier, perhaps a more affordable one.
The carmaker has released another teaser via its social media handles, that hints at the arrival of new variants in the Harrier range. The teaser image gets a caption reading “Stop Gazing. Start Living.”
In the picture, a person can be seen relaxing on a couch watching television, which is showing a scene of space with a zillion of stars. This picture is making us assume that Tata Motors might soon launch new variants of the Harrier, namely XTA and XTA+.
The Harrier’s line-up currently misses out on these trim options. Although, owners have the option of buying XT, XT+ trims. In simple words, the XT variants are not available with the option of an automatic gearbox. However, with the introduction of XTA and XTA+ trims, buyers will have the access to an automatic gearbox and the panoramic sunroof with the Harrier at a rather affordable price.
The current Price
Currently, the panoramic sunroof and automatic gearbox can only be had together in the top-spec XZA+ trim, which is priced at ₹20.81 lakh, ex-showroom. However, the most affordable trim with the automatic gearbox and panoramic sunroof are XMA and XT+, respectively. By the launch of these new trims, owners will have more variants to choose from, based on their requirements.
The Harrier is equipped with a 2.0L Diesel which is sourced from FCA. With its 4-cylinder turbocharged layout, the engine gives out 170 PS of peak power and 350 Nm of torque. Furthermore, it can be had paired to either a 6-speed MT or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
Features of the Harrier
Harrier is a mid-sized SUV and it certainly comes loaded with features. The list includes a touchscreen infotainment unit, premium sound system, panoramic sunroof, powered front seats, semi-digital instrument cluster, automatic climate control, keyless entry, push-button start-stop, drive & traction control modes, and more.
