The Tata Harrier Dark Edition is based on the top-end XZ trim of the SUV. It’s essentially a blacked out version of the SUV, and gets a slew of stylistic changes, mainly associated with the Atlas Black paint scheme. On the outside, key changes include a blacked out grille, blacked out chrome bits and R17 Blackstone Alloys. On the inside, the all-black theme continues with Premium Benecke Kaliko Blackstone Leather upholstery, Blackstone Matrix dashboard and a new Gunmetal Grey chrome pack. The Dark Edition of the Harrier is priced at Rs. 16.86 lakhs, ex-showroom Delhi, which is the same price as the dual tone variants of the top-end XZ trim of this SUV.
There are no mechanical changes. The Harrier continues to use a 2 liter Fiat Multijet turbocharged diesel engine in 140 Bhp-350 Nm state of tune. The gearbox is a 6 speed manual unit, driving the front wheels. There is no all wheel drive option available although the Harrier does get a ‘rough road’ mode that varies torque to the front wheels when it detects a loss in traction. The Harrier will soon get a BS6 variant, which is also expected to get a bump up in terms of power and torque. The BS6 version of the 2 liter Fiat Multijet engine is likely to make 170 Bhp-350 Nm, the same state of tune that it’s offered in the Jeep Compass and MG Hector.
The BS6 version of the Harrier will also get a 6 speed torque converter automatic gearbox option, which has been a big gap in the SUV’s current variant line-up. While Tata Motors is working on a turbo petrol engine for this SUV, it’ll still be a while before the engine is actually introduced in the vehicle. For now, the big things to look out for in the Harrier is the BS6 trim, and the automatic trim of course. The BS6 version could be pricier by about Rs. 1 lakh. So, if you want the Harrier at current price levels, you have to hurry. Tata Motors is likely to introduce the BS6 version of this SUV early next year, along with the hefty price hike.
