Tata’s Christmas and New Year Greetings have a wild Harrier Off-road render!

Tata recently did a press unveiling of its new Harrier SUV and it has left a good impression on our minds. We also brought you a first drive review of the Harrier which gave an insight into Tata’s most ambitious project yet. The Harrier is the largest SUV in its class and while not yet launched, it will definitely give a hard time to its rivals when its made available. Now, Tata has officially released a wilder looking Harrier which looks like a proper off road version of the regular SUV. In the picture which contains the SUV, the company also wishes all folks ‘Merry Christmas’ along with ‘Happy New Year’

The picture was actually tweeted by Paratap Bose, who is Tata’s design head. He is the man responsible for the new generation design of the current lot of Tata vehicles, including the Harrier. Pratap Tweeted:

It’s been an incredible year for the @TataMotors Global Design team. It’s now time to recharge our batteries!
We thank you for the love and support. It keeps us going. On behalf of the 200 strong Global Design team, I wish you a great Holiday Season!


Talking about the beefy looking white Harrier, the SUV finally gets the treatment many enthusiasts were wishing for. In the picture it is seen bashing some snow and going all wild in the white wilderness. The main change on the SUV are those huge, butch tires along with the massive rims they are shod onto. The stock Harrier does not come with 4WD or even AWD option but after having a look at this, we have begun to wish for at least AWD badly. As the SUV is built on a chassis which is shared with Land Rover SUVs, it is quite capable and ready to take the beating off the demanding wild terrain.

Some time back, we ourselves brought you what could be a more wild version of the Tata Harrier. Done by our in house render artist, it looks ready to go on an expedition and comes loaded with all the kit needed on an off road vehicle. The daytime LED DRLs are finished in yellow while the Tata logo on the grille is now done in bright red. The tyres are typical mud terrain units shod on blacked out alloy wheels while the roof has rails that host a top box. Other bits include body cladding, snorkel, LED auxiliary lamps and protective mesh around the headlamps.

The Tata harrier gets powered by a Fiat sourced 2.0 liter turbocharged diesel engine that will produce about 140 Bhp of power. A 6 speed manual gearbox will do the transmission duties on the SUV while 6 speed torque converter automatic gearbox will join the line-up later. The Harrier also features many class leading features and gets three mode Terrain Response System. Hill Descent Control is also on offer which will aid the SUV while tackling slopes. The only vice in the package so far is that it will only be available in FWD (Front Wheel Drive) guise, which limits its off road potential.  As for the pricing, nothing has been confirmed by the company yet but if the base variant stars around 12 lakhs, the Harrier will be a hit from launch.
