The Tata Harrier is on sale in the Indian car market since 2019, and in these three years of its existence, the SUV has remained more or less unchanged from the outside. The Harrier received a midlife update at the beginning of 2022, after which the SUV has only received minor feature additions and new colour schemes. Given that the competition is intensifying with newer rivals, Tata is said to be working on the first major design update of the Harrier. Here’s a design illustration, which gives a brief idea of what the new Harrier will look like.
The design rendering of the new Tata Harrier is not confirmed by the car maker but is a possible iteration of the new version of the SUV created digitally. As per this rendering by CarBlogIndia, the Tata Harrier gets a heavily revised front fascia, which gets a new front bumper with bigger and more aggressive-looking headlamp housings. Given the segment norms, the new Tata Harrier might receive all-LED headlamps. Here, the front grille also has an additional dose of chrome, which makes the front look more premium than the current model.
The lower part of the front bumper has also been revised with a new air dam, which has a split design with a thin strip above the license plate housing and a large and wider-looking half below it. The lower air dam gets honeycomb inserts and is garnished with a thick-looking silver skid plate at the bottom. The design rendering shows only the design tweaks at the front, but it is expected that the new version of the Harrier might also get a few noteworthy tweaks to the rear profile, with new tail lamp housings. Another possible change to the exterior of the new Harrier is a new pattern for the alloy wheels.

The design rendering does not show details of the interior of the facelifted Tata Harrier. However, the new version of the SUV might get a more modern infotainment screen which is expected to be bigger and feature a new operating system. In addition, the new Tata Harrier will be a more premium offering with additional features like a 360-degree parking camera, a new suite of safety features with the ADAS package and tweaks to the instrument console.
Expect the same mechanicals
Even in the facelifted version, the new Tata Harrier will retain its 2.0-litre diesel engine, which produces 170 PS of power and 350 Nm of torque and is offered with 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic gearbox options. It might also receive a new option of a turbocharged petrol engine rumoured about for a long now.
