Tata Motors launched a couple of vehicles in the beginning of this year. One such such vehicle that was showcased at this year’s Auto Expo was the 2020 updated Tata Harrier. It is one of the popular mid-size SUV in the segment that competes with cars like Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, MG Hector and Jeep Compass in the segment. The 2020 version of the Harrier saw a couple changes in comparison to the older version. Here we have a video that takes us through all the new or updated features that the 2020 version of Harrier now comes with.
The video has been uploaded on Tata Motors official page and showcases all the features that are added to the SUV. It also asks buyers to be ‘vocal for local’ and promote the usage of Indian products. On the outside, the basic design of the SUV remains the same as before. It gets the dual function LED DRLs with low positioned projector type headlamps. The changes on the outside include a new set of alloy wheels and a redesigned ORVM. The 2020 Harrier now comes in two new colours – Calypso Red and Cocoa Sparkle.
On the inside, Harrier continues to get premium looking interiors with leather wrapped steering wheels and seats. The cabin is fairly spacious and the roominess of the cabin is improved with the addition of an all-new panoramic sunroof. The driver side seat can now be adjusted electrically and the IRVMs are also auto-dimming. The main update however, in the 2020 Harrier is obviously the addition of an automatic transmission. The Harrier is now equipped with a Hyundai sourced 6-speed automatic transmission which was completely missing in the earlier version.
The Harrier continues to get other features like Terrain-response system, touchscreen infotainment system, cruise control, JBL speakers and so on. The 2020 version of the SUV uses the same 2.0 litre Kryotec engine but, in comparison to the older version the engine now BS6 compliant and generates 30 Ps more power than before. The engine now generates 170 Ps and 350 Nm of peak torque. The 2020 Harrier is more expensive than the BS4 version. It is now priced at Rs 13.69 lakh ex-showroom and price for automatic version starts at Rs 16.25 lakh, ex-showroom. The SUV is expected to get a turbocharged petrol engine sometime next year. Like the diesel engine, the turbo petrol motor on the SUV is likely to be offered with manual and automatic gearbox options. A front wheel drive layout will be standard.
