Tata Motors has just opened bookings for the upgraded, 2020 Tata Harrier BS6. As its name suggests, the Harrier now meets Bharat Stage 6 (BS6) emission norms and gets a slew of changes to justify the upgrade. Customers interested in the new Harrier can visit their nearest Tata Motors dealership to make the booking or can visit the official Tata Harrier website to make an online booking. Prices of the 2020 Tata Harrier BS6 will be announced at the official launch at the Auto Expo, following which deliveries will commence. Tata Motors has just revealed the 2020 Harrier through a video that gives a quick glimpse of the heavily updated SUV. Here, check it out.
The 2020 Tata Harrier BS6 gets a more powerful state of tune for the 2 liter Fiat Multijet turbocharged diesel engine, which now puts out 170 Bhp-350 Nm. There are 2 gearbox options: a 6 speed manual and a newly introduced Hyundai-sourced 6 speed torque converter automatic. Both gearboxes drive the front wheels of the 2020 Harrier, and there is no all wheel drive variant available.
The 2020 Harrier also gets an electric sunroof and power adjustable driver’s seat in the top-end XZ+ and XZA+ trims. These are newly introduced variants in the Harrier line up.
The automatic option is available across three variants: XMA, XZA and XZA+. The 2020 Harrier also gets a new paint scheme: Calypso Red. Other significant changes include standard ESP across all variants, auto dimming rear view mirrors and a two- tone diamond cut finish for the 17 inch alloy wheels on the top-end trims.
While pricing will be revealed in a couple of days, we expect the Harrier to get pricier by about Rs. 30,000 among lower variants while the highest trim could see a price increase of about Rs. 1.2-1.5 lakh. The Harrier rivals the likes of the MG Hector, Jeep Compass and Mahindra XUV500, and is a five seat SUV.
Commenting on this launch, Mr. Vivek Srivatsa, Head – Marketing, Passenger Vehicles Business Unit, Tata Motors, said, “We are delighted to bring the highly anticipated Tata Harrier automatic transmission to our customers alongwith the Harrier BSVI range. In line with our philosophy of going beyond BSVI, we are offering a host of technical, safety and design upgrades on the Harrier. With the introduction of this new range, Harrier is ready to set new benchmarks and deliver a segment-leading performance. We are confident that this new feature addition will lure more customers in the coming days.”
