One of the most anticipated models launched by Tata Motors last year was the Harrier SUV. It became very popular among the buyers within a very short time because of it’s unique design, features value for money factor and our lover for SUVs. Harrier competes with cars like Hyundai Creta, Mahindra XUV500, Jeep OCmpass, Kia Seltos, MG Hector in the segment. We had earlier published an article where the artist had imagined Tata Nexon as a police car. Now we have a video where the artist had created a police car render based on the Tata Harrier SUV.
The video has been uploaded by Moto Show on their youtube channel. The video starts by changing the colour of the car from the signature calisto copper to black. The black is a colour that we is associated with police vehicles in many countries. The major change that one would notice in the police car version of the Harrier is the bull bar at the front with LED red and blue flashing lights on the bumper, above the skid plate and on the bull bar as well.
The fog lamp design remains same but the light used has been changed. The DRLs have been converted into the signature red and blue LED lights. There is also a LED spot light placed on the left side of the car. As usual, there is an LED light bar on the top of the car as well along with ‘Police Interceptor’ Decal on the side. Apart from that nothing else has changed in the car and the Harrier in this police car seriously looks good.
Coming back to the Harrier, it recently got an update and was showcased at the auto expo earlier this month. The updated Harrier gets new features like electronically adjustable driver seat, panoramic sunroof, automatic transmission, new alloy wheels and a BS6 compliant engine. It is still powered by the same 2.0 litre turbocharged diesel engine but it now produces 170 PS which is 30 PS more than the BS4 version.
The BS6 Harrier is already launched and prices start at Rs 13.69 lakh and go up till Rs 20.25 lakh, ex-showroom. Bookings for the new SUV are on. However, deliveries will begin only by March 2020 as Tata Motors is still unsure about BS6 fuel availability across India. We expect customer deliveries of the Harrier BS6 to happen in a phased manner across India.
