Tata Motors is laying it thick and fast when it comes to new car and variant launches. The automaker is all set to introduce yet another variant for the Tata Harrier, in the form of the Camo Edition. The Tata Harrier Camo Edition has already been spied on video and dealers have been notified. The launch seems just around the corner. Here, check it out.
As the video indicates, the Camo Edition of the Harrier features a matte green paint scheme, not too dissimilar from the shade that Army vehicles in India are finished in. There’s a subtle difference in the Camo Edition’s paint scheme and the one that the Indian Army uses. This is because civilian vehicles cannot use the same shade of olive green that military vehicles in India are finished in.
The Tata Harrier Camo Edition will be available in 6 trims: XT, XT+, XZ, XZ+, XZA and XZA+. Clearly, both manual and automatic variant buyers of the Harrier get a change to opt for the Camo Edition paint scheme considering the variant distribution above. The mechanicals of the Harrier Camo Edition will be unchanged. What is yet to be seen is whether the SUV will get a revised colour scheme on the inside as well.
The Tata Harrier is a 5 seater mid-size SUV that squares off against the likes of the Mahindra XUV500 and MG Hector in terms of size, and the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos due to the price overlap. The Harrier is powered by a 2 liter-4 cylinder turbocharged Fiat Multijet diesel engine with 170 Bhp-350 Nm outputs. There are two gearboxes to choose from: a 6 speed manual, and a 6 speed torque converter automatic sourced from Hyundai. Both gearboxes drive the front wheels of the Harrier, which does not get an all wheel drive option.
What the Harrier does get though is a Rough mode that splits torque between the front wheels in low traction conditions. The Harrier is currently Tata Motors’ flagship offering, sitting right at the top of the automaker’s Indian line up. Early next year, Tata Motors will launch the Gravitas, a SUV that is based on the Harrier but with a 6 seat layout. The Gravitas will be longer than the Harrier, and will be pitted against the MG Hector Plus. The Gravitas is expected to be about Rs. 1 lakh pricier than the Harrier, but will share mechanicals and features with the latter.
