Army Major explains why he chose Tata Harrier over Mahindra XUV700

Tata Harrier is one of the popular SUVs in its segment. It competes with cars like Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, MG Hector in the segment. 5 seater version of Mahindra XUV700 can also be called as a competitor to Harrier. The Dark edition of Harrier has been very popular among buyers for its looks and we have seen several videos of the same on the internet as well. Here we have a video that shows why an Army major chose to buy Tata Harrier over Mahindra XUV700.

The video has been shared by Fuel Injected on their YouTube channel. In this video, the owner shares his experience with the Tata Harrier and also mentions why he chose Tata Harrier over Mahindra XUV700. Vlogger mentioned that the owner of this SUV is actually an Army officer and he had bought this SUV very recently.

As part of his job he had to travel a lot to several parts of the country and the car has already done over 5,000 kms on odometer in couple of months. The owner mentions that he had an eye on Harrier ever since it was launched in the market. He was planning to buy it for a very long time and finally realised his dream in 2021.

The owner bought Harrier dark edition and not Mahindra XUV700 because he wanted the car to be delivered readily. When he had booked the Harrier, Mahindra had not announced anything about the delivery of the XUV700. The owner then mentions that he was looking for a 5-seater SUV only and the Harrier made more sense to him. He has other cars at home and all of them are white in colour.

He wanted a different colour for his next car and that is when he discovered the Dark Edition of Tata Harrier. He found the SUV to be very attractive and booked the car. When booked the car, he was posted in Jammu and had taken the delivery from Punjab. He drove the SUV from Punjab to Jammu and after that, he has driven it to various states.

He said, the overall ride comfort, stability of the Harrier is well and even his wife appreciated it. The owner mentioned that he has not faced any problem with the car so far. He did mention that the Harrier had some quality issues but, other than that there wasn’t any problem with the car. He said as the overall theme of the car is black or Dark, the cabin tends to warm up easily, a ventilated seat feature would have been great. He also said the quality of the rear view camera and the touchscreen infotainment system should also be improved.

He has been driving the SUV on long routes regularly and the Harrier automatic has been returning him a fuel economy of 14-15 kmpl. Tata Harrier is powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged diesel engine that generates 170 Ps and 350 Nm of peak torque. The engine comes with a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic transmission option.
