Tata Harrier, which was launched last year in January is all-set to receive major updates soon. Tata has released official teaser videos of the Harrier with new features that will be launched in the Indian market in the coming months. The updates will be released with the BS6 compliant Tata Harrier.
The new teaser videos come with the caption – “Driving Pleasure Like Never Before”. The new BS6 compliant Tata Harrier will offer an automatic transmission. Till now, Tata Harrier remained the only vehicle in the segment that did not offer an automatic transmission. The new teaser gives a sneak peek into the cabin of the vehicle that shows the automatic transmission of the upcoming transmission.
The Harrier will get a new dual-tone automatic gear level. It gets a Tri-Arrow design on the head that has the markings – P,R,N,D. It also gets a manual mode, that will allow the drivers to take more control of the transmission and shift the gears at their will. Tata is yet to release the details on the transmission. It is not known which automatic transmission will be available with the Harrier. However, there is a chance that we will get to see the same 6-speed torque convertor with the Harrier, which is already available with the Tata Hexa in the Indian market. The transmission in Hexa works extremely well and offers a smooth shift between the gears.
A second teaser video of the upcoming Tata Harrier BS6 shows that the vehicle will get an all-new colour theme. The red-black dual-tone colour theme will be similar to Altroz and looks extremely good on the Harrier. Moreover, the vehicle will offer a panoramic sunroof, which will be a segment-first feature. Currently, Tata offers a sunroof option that can be installed at the authorised dealerships. There is no factory-fitted sunroof option available with the car.
Talking about the engine, the current 2.0-litre Multijet diesel engine that powers the Tata Harrier will be updated. In its current form, the engine produces a maximum of 140 PS and peak torque of 350. However, the same engine also powers the vehicles like Jeep Compass and MG Hector in the Indian market. In the Compass and the Hector, the engine produces a maximum of 170 PS and 350 Nm of peak torque. The updated version of the car will offer a similar 170 PS-350 Nm tune.
Tata is expected to increase the number of features available with the Harrier as well. We will get to see a slightly updated cabin too. Soon after the launch, the Tata Harrier became quite popular in the market. However, new launches in the form of MG Hector and Kia Seltos impacted the sales of the car.
