It looks like someone at Tata Motors’ headquarters is playing around with the colour palette a little too much. Not too long ago, Tata silently discontinued the Tectonic Blue shade from the Tiago’s and Nexon’s lineup and it looks like the same treatment has been given to the Harrier as well. But this time around, it is the Sparkle Cocoa shade that has been given the axe. For the uninitiated, it is the light brown metallic colour that was introduced when Tata launched the updated Harrier back in 2020.
Tata Motors hasn’t given out an official statement regarding the revision but it could have happened because let us admit it, the Sparkle Cocoa shade of the Harrier wasn’t the most popular of the lot.
Apart from this, everything remains unchanged. Currently, Tata Harrier is available in five colours: Calypso Red, Orcus White, Telesto Grey, Camo Green (Camo Edition), and Atlas Black (Dark Edition). The first two also come in an optional dual-tone finish at a Rs 20,000 premium.
Specs and features
In 2020, the Harrier received a heavy update and in its current iteration, the FCA-sourced 2.0-litre diesel engine now makes 70 PS of power and 350 NM of torque. Another new addition was the panoramic sunroof which comes with 3 user-friendly switches and rain-sensing closure. The ORVMs are now smaller in size because the older ones were a tad too big and hampered visibility. Based on Impact Design 2.0 design philosophy, Tata Harrier comes out as a handsome car that boasts of some class-leading features. Tata borrowed the DNA from Land Rover to develop the Harrier and it definitely shows as it gets different terrain response modes too and is based on Land Rover’s D8 platform. It also comes with driving modes that change the overall characteristics of the car depending on the mode chosen.
Harrier doesn’t fall short in the feature list either as it comes with a host of connectivity options which include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay with integrated voice recognition which takes care of navigation, music, phone calls among many other things. Other features which increase the overall comfort and convenience include 6-way powered driver seat, rain sensing wipers, automatic headlamps, rear AC vents and 28 utility spaces.
