Tata Harrier, the all-new mid-size SUV that was launched in the Indian market last year is all set to receive a number of updates. Tata has officially started releasing teaser videos highlights the features of the upcoming Tata Harrier. The BS6 compliant Tata Harrier will be revealed at the 2020 Auto Expo. Here are all the features that will be offered with the all-new Tata Harrier.
To start with, the new upcoming Tata Harrier will get an updated engine. It will continue to be powered by the same 2.0-litre that powers the current version of the Harrier. However, it will become cleaner to meet BS6 emission compliance. Also, the 2.0-litre Multijet engine powering the Harrier will now deliver 170 PS instead of 140 PS. The maximum torque of 350 Nm will continue to remain the same.
The second biggest update that will be available with the new Harrier is the automatic transmission. Tata has officially released a teaser video showing the automatic transmission lever. The vehicle will get a 6-speed automatic transmission that is also available with the Tata Hexa. Since the Harrier is available in the mid-size SUV segment, there is a lot of demand for the automatic transmission. Also, all the rivals of the Harrier offer an automatic transmission. This is something that is expected to boost the sales of the Harrier in the coming times.
There are other important feature updates too. The new upcoming Tata Harrier will get a panoramic sunroof. It will be the second car in the segment to offer a panoramic sunroof after the MG Hector. Currently, the Harrier offers a dealership-level installation of the sunroof. The new Harrier will get a factory-fitted sunroof, which will offer high reliability. We will also get to see an updated feature list. Tata’s official teaser showed that the Harrier will come equipped with electrically adjustable driver seat too. There will be no other changes to the cabin or the dashboard. Tata will also offer 18-inch alloy wheels with the updated Harrier that will make it look more imposing on the roads.
Tata may offer a few cosmetic changes with the new Harrier too. We may get to see a slightly updated grille and bumper to keep it fresh in the segment. The Harrier takes on an extremely competitive segment that offers vehicles like the MG Hector and Mahindra XUV500. The price of the Tata Harrier also makes it rival of the vehicles like Kia Seltos, Hyundai Creta and Jeep Compass. With the new updates, Tata will be equipped to take on the competition. Tata is expected to increase the price with the new updated Harrier.
