The Tata Harrier might be one of the highest-selling midsize SUVs in recent times, but now, given the arrival of newer SUVs like the Hyundai Alcazar and Mahindra XUV700, it has started to feel comparatively old. While it is heavily equipped with features, the competition has moved forward with more new-generation features, many of which are now missing in the Harrier. However, there’s nothing much to worry about, as Tata Motors is already working on a facelifted version of the Harrier, and we have come across a digital rendering of how the SUV will turn into a real-life appearance.
This digital rendering of the facelifted Tata Harrier, which has been uploaded on the YouTube channel of SRK Designs, shows how the new version of the midsize SUV will look like. Here, the visuals suggest that the new Harrier gets a new front fascia, something which is evident and has been proven by the camouflaged test mules of the SUV currently going under trial runs in the country. The tweaks carried out at the front do make the Harrier look much more attractive and sleeker than how it looks currently.
At the front, this digital rendering of the Tata Harrier retains the split theme for the headlamps. However, the arrangement of the lights here looks different, as the projectors for the main headlamp have moved into the upper housing adjacent to the grille. Compared to the sleek strip of dual-functioning turn indicators, these new housings in their place look slightly larger, while having turn indicators and LED daytime running lights in them as well. The lower part of the split headlamp positioned slightly lower gets only the rounded fog lamps in them.
A mild facelift
The other changes which are apparent in this digital rendering of the Tata Harrier include new five-spoke alloy wheels and a sharper and broader-looking front grille with new squared inserts in them. The lower part of the front bumper has also been tweaked slightly with a split design for the air dams. Apart from all these changes, this digital rendering of the Tata Harrier looks much like the current-spec Harrier, making it look like a mild facelift.
It should be noted that this digital rendering is a creative imagination of a digital artist and not the final outlook of the design approved by Tata Motors for the facelifted Harrier. While the new Harrier will come with a tweaked design inside-out and a few more features, it is expected to retain the 2.0-litre four-cylinder 170 PS diesel engine with both transmission choices of 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic.
