We already know that Tata Motors is working on updating their existing lineup, including the Nexon facelift. Now, a set of new images has surfaced that show how the upcoming 2023 Tata Harrier facelift would look. Tata launched the Harrier in 2019, and it has since become a popular SUV in its segment. However, with increased competition, Tata is now looking to update this SUV. The new set of spy pictures shows both the exterior and interior of the upcoming Harrier facelift.
The exterior of the upcoming Harrier looks slightly different from the existing model. It appears to be inspired by the Harrier EV that was showcased at the Auto Expo earlier this year. The split headlamp setup has been retained, but the bumper looks slightly more edgy and sharper than before, giving the Harrier a more muscular appearance. We can also see a horizontal grille split between the upper and lower parts of the bumper. Since this is a test mule, the manufacturer has installed dummy lights on the bumper. The position of the LED DRLs is likely to remain the same as before.

The design of the bumper and fender remains the same. Even the design of the alloy wheels looks the same as the pre-facelift version. The side profile of the SUV remains unchanged, and as we move to the rear, the integrated spoiler on the roof, rear bumper, and tail lamps all remain the same. It is unknown whether Tata will offer a connecting LED light bar between the tail lamps, as seen in the Harrier EV concept. Everything else on the SUV looks the same as before.
Moving to the interior, the images show what the interior of the upcoming Harrier facelift will look like. The dashboard design remains the same as the current version, but the major difference is the new touchscreen infotainment screen. It looks a lot more premium than the older version and is similar to what we have seen with the Red and Dark Editions of the Harrier and Safari. The instrument cluster is not clearly visible in the picture, but we expect Tata to update that as well. Additionally, the faux wooden panel on the dashboard and the multifunction steering wheel are clearly visible.
Another major update with the upcoming Harrier is the gear lever. The design of the gear lever is different from the current version; it looks smaller, and the terrain response system buttons are placed ahead of the gear lever. We can see P, N, D, and R markings behind the gear lever, and the electric parking brake is also visible in the pictures. The seat is finished in brown-colored leatherette upholstery. With all these changes, the Tata Harrier will look a lot more premium, and like other Tata products, the Harrier facelift is expected to be competitively priced. It should be noted that the changes we see in the Harrier facelift are expected to be carried forward to the Harrier EV and Safari facelift.
