Tata Harrier is currently one of the most popular mid-size SUV in the segment. It competes with the likes of Mahindra XUV500, Jeep Compass, MG Hector and recently launched Kia Seltos in its segment. Tata Harrier is based on H5X concept which was showcased in 2018 Auto Expo in Delhi. The Harrier is built on OMEGA Architecture which is derived from Land Rover’s D8 platform. Tata Motors had worked heavily on the design part to make it look like a proper brute SUV. Now here we have a video that shows how the Harrier would look like, if it were to get a coupe design.
The video has been uploaded by Moto Show on their Youtube channel. The artist in the re designs Harrier SUV and gives it a coupeish design. First thing that the artist changes in the render are the alloys and then the Harrier sits a bit lower than the stock version. The roof of the Harrier is then chopped off and is replaced with a sloping roof. The roof slopes down and joins the tail lamp unit.
A small boot lip is also placed above the tail light. Wheel arches also get a character line that starts from the front wheel arches, runs through the bottom of the door and ends at the rear bumper The Harrier Chrome plate on C Pillar has been removed because of the sloping roof which gives it more of a sporty and lowered stance. The coupe design is quite attractive and there are only a couple of SUVs that have utilized this. One of them is the BMW X6 and the other is the Mercedes-Benz GLC. The Artist here in the video shows the Harrier Coupe SUV in different colours of Calisto Copper, Red, Orcus White, Telesto Grey and black.
Coming to the engine, Tata Harrier gets 2 liter Fiat Multijet turbocharged diesel engine in 140 Bhp-350 Nm state of tune. The gearbox is a 6 speed manual unit. Harrier does not get AWD even as an option but has a Terrain Response System. Harrier will soon become BS6 compliant and will also get an automatic transmission which is missing now. Tata is also working on 7-seater version of the Harrier which will be called Gravitas. Tata will showcase Gravitas in the upcoming Auto Expo and is expected to launch later in 2020. The Gravitas will be pricier than the Harrier, and will share its engine and gearboxes with the latter.
