Tata Harrier was one of the most anticipated SUVs from homegrown manufacturer that got launched in the market last year. It quickly became popular among buyers because of the butch looks, features and the price. The mid-size SUV segment is a highly competitive one and Harrier currently competes with cars like Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, MG Hector in the segment. Looking at the growing competition, Tata decided to come up with a 2020 version of the popular SUV and earlier this year at the Auto Expo launched the 2020 Tata Herrier. Here we have a video that takes us through all the existing and new features of the updated Harrier SUV.
The video starts by showing the exterior of the Tata Harrier. The overall design on the outside remains unchanged and retains the butch and bulky look. Let’s start with the elements that are new in the 2020 Tata Harrier. On the outside it gets a diamond cut alloy wheel and the ORVMs are also redesigned. The updated Tata Harrier gets a couple of new shades- one is the Calypso Red that is seen in the video and the other is Cocoa Sparkle. Apart from this, the Harrier gets the same projector headlamp set up, dual function LED DRL, LED tail lights and so on.
On the inside, Tata has made some more changes. Starting with the driver side seat which is 6 way electrically adjustable. The main change however is the huge panoramic sunroof which was not offered in the earlier version. It gets an auto-dimming IRVM and comes with ESP as standard. Apart from that the interior design remains the same and gets leather wrapped steering and seats, touchscreen infotainment system with JBL speakers and so on.
The 2020 version of Harrier also gets one more feature, which is an automatic transmission which was missing earlier. It gets a 6-speed Hyundai sourced automatic transmission which is mated to the same 2.0 litre Kryotec turbocharged diesel engine. The engine is now BS6 compliant and generates more power than before. The BS6 Tata Harrier generates 170 PS and 350 Nm of peak torque which 30 PS more than the BS4 version. The price has also gone up with all these updates and it now starts at Rs 13.69 lakh for manual and Rs 16.25 lakh for the automatic version (all the prices are ex-showroom).
