This year they showcased Sierra Concept, HBX Concept, Tata Hexa Safari Edition, Altroz, Altroz EV, Nexon, Nexon EV, Gravitas and Harrier along with other commercial vehicles.

With BS6 engine, Harrier got many other updates and here we have a video from Pratap Bose, Vice President, Global Design Tata Motors taking us through all the changes that are made to the Harrier.

The video starts from the inside of the car, where he speaks about the first visible update or change made to the Harrier. The Harrier 2020 or BS6 version now gets an automatic transmission. It is a 6-speed torque converter unit. The layout of the interiors remain more or less the same but has got minute cosmetic changes like brushed aluminium inserts at places.

Tata Harrier 2020 version also gets a huge panoramic sunroof which was missing earlier. The Harrier also gets auto dimming IRVMs and electrically 6 way adjustable driver seat. On the outside, it gets a brand new shade of red with blacked out roof which makes it look more premium and sporty. The outside rear view mirrors have also been tweaked and the 18 inch alloy wheels with new diamond cut alloy wheels look sporty and add up to the SUV stance of the Harrier.
