With the calls for AtmaNirbhar Bharat becoming stronger, there are many who have started preferring homegrown manufacturers over the foreign brands. Manufacturers like Tata and Mahindra are getting a lot of support, at least on the social media channels. In the present day, the design of the Tata vehicles has evolved dramatically, with the IMPACT design philosophy, modern-day Tata cars have surely become a head-turner. And as we all know, Tata has always been making affordable and practical cars. Tata Harrier is one such car and is one of the first Indian manufactured cars to enter the segment of Kia Seltos, Jeep Compass, MG Hector etc. Harrier became popular since its launch because of its attractive design and aesthetics. It is definitely a head-turner on road even now. Making it more popular, Tata recently launched the BS6 version of Tata Harrier in 2020 with many new added features and a more powerful engine. Here we are going to see this YouTuber explain why he chose the Tata Harrier amongst its worthy competitors.
AutoTube India uploaded this video on their youtube channel. The vlogger has bought the Dark Edition Harrier which is newly launched in the market. He starts the video by showing the XZ trim, which is one notch lower than the top-end trim. The only difference between the regular and the Dark Edition Harrier is that the latter gets an all-black treatment. The top-end rim gets grey 5 spoke alloy wheels instead of dual-tone diamond-cut ones. The vlogger’s Harrier’s chrome bits have been removed. The black elements have also been replaced with black elements to match the overall dark theme. The fender also comes with a ‘Dark’ badge.
The overall dark theme is running through the interiors as well. The seats, dashboard, steering wheels and even the door padding gets a black dark shade. The primary reason stated by the vlogger on choosing the Harrier over MG Hector is the overall ride quality. This comes as a surprise for consumers prioritizing features over the ride quality as the MG Hector comes with many more standard features in comparison to the Hector.
When it comes to comparing the Harrier with the Jeep Compass, the only negative on the account of the Compass was it being a bit overpriced. He didn’t even begin comparing the Harrier with Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta as they have a much smaller space and a smaller engine in comparison to the Harrier. When he actually went to buy the top-end variant of Creta, he figured that space was not even close to what was offered at similar pricing in the Harrier. The Harrier checked all the basic feature requirement from an SUV car, such as design, space and engine performance.
The new 2020 Tata Harrier comes with a 2.0-litre BS6 compliant diesel engine that can generate a maximum of 170 PS of peak and 350 Nm of torque. The Tata Harrier is luckily available in both manual and a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The prices, however, vary between Rs. 13.69 lakh ex-showroom for manual and Rs. 16.25 lakh ex-showroom for automatic variant respectively.
