Tata launched the Harrier earlier this year and the popularity of the all-new SUV is already on the rise in the Indian market. The Tata Harrier has already made a large fanbase in the Indian market and there are quite a few imaginative renderings of the vehicle by the enthusiasts. Here is another such rendering that shows the Harrier in the convertible avatar.
The Tata Harrier is based on the all-new Omega Arc platform that has been derived from the Land Rover’s D8 platform. Tata has designed the Harrier in a very modern way and it sure looks intimidating on the roads. This imaginative rendering is inspired by the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible, which is the only convertible-SUV in the world at the moment.
The artist Dharavi Team has lifted the convertible mechanism from the Range Rover Evoque and has added it the Harrier to give it a realistic look. The convertible mechanism of the Evoque is a soft-roof type and it also gets two-door set-up. Both the features can be seen on the Harrier convertible too. The artist has painted the Harrier convertible in black but the front-end of the vehicle remains similar to the stock version.
While it may look like a good idea, be rest assured that the convertible version of the Harrier will not make it to the production line. Convertible vehicles cost a lot of money, which is why there are no such vehicles available for mass segment car buyers. The Harrier in its stock form does not even get a sunroof at the moment but Tata is working on the same and the feature is expected to be launched in the Harrier by the end of this year.
The Tata Harrier currently enjoys an extremely good value-for-money price tag. The SUV is priced at Rs 12.69 lakh for the base model and it takes on the likes of Hyundai Creta and Jeep Compass in the Indian market. The Harrier is one of the biggest SUVs in the segment and has a massive road-presence. Also, the uniquely designed front-end of the vehicle makes it quite noticeable on the road. The Harrier gets separate housings for the Daytime Running Lamps and the main headlamp cluster, which attracts a lot of attention on the road. At the rear, the Harrier gets big tail lamps that are connected through a thick black stripe running across the rear hatch door.
Tata uses a 2.0-litre diesel Multijet engine sourced from Fiat to power the Harrier. This is the same engine that also powers the Jeep Compass in the Indian market and produces a maximum of 140 PS and 350 Nm in the Harrier. It gets a 6-speed manual transmission but soon, Tata may start offering a six-speed automatic option too.
