Tata Harrier, the newest SUV from the Indian brand is gathering a lot of attention because of its exotic design. Since the Harrier is the first car to be based on the IMPACT 2.0 design, it gets some unique features like separate housings for the DRLs and the headlamps and floating roof design. The Harrier is catching all the attention on the road and since it is a popular SUV, there are a few renderings that show it as a convertible too.
Here is a rendering put up by SRK Designs on YouTube shows how exactly the rendering is made out of the regular version of the Harrier. Mind you that this is a speculative rendering and there is no chance of this convertible getting into production. Convertible cars are quite expensive and due to the weather conditions in India, they are not very popular too. However, there are quite a few exotic convertibles on the Indian roads including the world’s only SUV convertible – the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque convertible.
To achieve the convertible look the the roof of the vehicle has been removed completely. Also, adding a sportier look to the vehicle is the new two-door form of the vehicle. The rear doors have been removed and it also gets a new windshield, which is more raked and gets a black border. Slight changes have been done to the vehicle’s wheel arches too while the front-end of the vehicle now gets a different bumper that adds an aggressive look.
Since the convertible versions of the vehicles always sportier in terms of looks, the Harrier convertible rendering also becomes sportier with aftermarket, big rim alloy wheels. The shape of the front grille remains the same but the design of the grille has been updated to add a sportier look. In the end, the overall colour of the vehicle has been changed to a more eye-catchy colour.
It should be noted that in the stock form, the Tata Harrier does not even get a sunroof. Instead, it gets an optional sunroof feature that can be installed at the dealer level. However, in the future, Tata may launch a factory-installed sunroof with the Harrier.
The Tata Harrier currently gets powered by a 2.0-litre Multijet diesel engine sourced from Fiat. It is the same engine that powers the Jeep Compass diesel in India and will also power newer Tata products in the market. In the Harrier, the engine produces a maximum power of 140 PS and peak torque of 350 Nm. It gets a 6-speed manual transmission as standard but Tata is also working to launch a 6-speed automatic transmission, which will be sourced from Hyundai. In the coming months, Tata will also launch the 7-seater version of the Harrier, which will be known as the Buzzard.
