Tata Harrier has almost completed two years since in the Indian market. Earlier this year, Tata updated the Harrier with new features, a more powerful engine and an optional automatic transmission. However, the majority of the vehicle remains the same. Here is a video that shows an owner of the Harrier talking about his experience with the Harrier for almost two years and 30,000 km.
This is a top-end Tata Harrier XZ and the owner says that he got interested in the car when he saw the H7X concept at the Auto Expo. The owner researched on the vehicle and became one of the first owners of the Tata Harrier in India. He also owned a Tata Indigo in the past and says that he never wanted to go back to Tata. However, the design of the Harrier and interesting parts like its Land Rover derived platform and Fiat’s Multijet engine changed his mind.
The owner of the car has even installed a rooftop tent and says that he absolutely loves the car. Starting with the positive points, the owner says that he loves the build quality of the Harrier and the sound of the door closing. He also talks about the looks of the Harrier a lot and says that he really loves what Tata has to offer with the Harrier.
Talking about the engine, he says that he finds the engine somewhat underpowered. This is a 2018 Tata Harrier that offered 140 PS of maximum power compared to the 170 PS available with the current version of the vehicle. However, he says that Tata has now launched the 170 PS version and he is happy for the customers. He also plans to upgrade the power output of his Harrier. Tata did not offer the panoramic sunroof with the previous model and the owner says that he wanted one but overlooked it.
For the highway stability, he says that car Harrier is heavy and that’s why the stability is excellent. He has cruised at over 150 km/h on the highways and said he loves the stability at high speed. The owner also talks about the service and how good Tata has become from its earlier days. He gave an example and said that the service centre officials came to his home to update the infotainment system and also got him gifts since they forgot to do it at the service centre. Also, the response of the service advisor has improved a lot.
Space-wise, the owner said that he is happy with the boot space and the amount of legroom for the rear passengers. Inside the cabin, he also shows the dashboard and says that everything feels premium in the Harrier and is happy. He also talks about the driving modes and really loves the features available with the mid-size SUV. Comparing it to the XUV500, he says that he finds the Mahindra to be slightly better.
Anything that he did not like?
The owner talks about the size of the ORVMs and says that they create blind spots. A new driver takes a long time to get used to these massive mirrors. He also adds that Tata has rectified the same in the new Harrier so there’s not much of a problem now. Apart from a few missing features and a more powerful engine, he finds the Harrier a perfect vehicle for the family. Tata will launch the all-new Gravitas based on the Harrier’s platform next year. Also, new launches like Altroz turbo-petrol and the production version of HBX will happen in 2021.
