The T Harrier was launched earlier this year at an exciting price of Rs. 12.69 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi. The all-new Harrier is based on the Omega Arc platform, which is derived from Jaguar Land Rover’s D8 platform. It is the same platform that underpins the Land Rover Discovery Sport but enough changes have been made on the platform to keep it affordable. The Tata Harrier offers an unavoidable road presence because of its new-age IMPACT 2.0 design philosophy and the dimensions of the Harrier. Earlier, pictures of the Tata Harrier showed us how grand it looks in front of the rivals. Here are pictures of the all-new Harrier with the Audi Q7 and the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque.
Commenting on the design of the Tata Harrier, Karan Raj Singh, who sent us the pictures said that it is the rarity of the Tata Harrier on the roads that turn a lot of heads. He added because everyone is familiar with the design of the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque and the Audi Q7 in the Indian market, the Tata Harrier can turn a lot of heads on the road, which it did. Karan Raj Singh also said that if the Tata logo is not there on the front of the SUV, it can be easily mistaken for some luxury branded imported SUV. Well, we do agree to the comments of Mr Karan Raj and thank him for the pictures.
Here’s the exact words he said,
People are already familiar with Evoque and Q7. So Harrier makes everyone turn their heads. Scratch off the Tata logo and 90% of the people can mistake it for a luxury imported SUV
The Tata Harrier measures 4,598mm in length, 1,894mm in width and 1,714mm in height. Comparing this to the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, it offers 4,371mm of length 1,649 of height and 1,996mm of width with mirrors folded. The Harrier is only smaller when it comes to the width. The Audi Q7 offers 5,052 mm of length, 1,968 mm of width and 1,740 mm of height.
Apart from looking extremely huge on the road, the Tata Harrier’s new-age design is what makes it very eye-catchy on the road. It gets bright LED DRL at the front, which forms the extended part of the front grille of the car. The main headlamp cluster is positioned lower in the bumper that makes the car look very different from the conventional vehicles. It should be noted that the Tata Harrier is priced very affordable in the segment while the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is priced at Rs. 52 lakhs and the Audi Q7 is priced at Rs. 74 lakh.
The Tata Harrier will soon get a seven-seater version in the Indian market. The all-new SUV was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show as the Buzzard and offers bigger dimensions than the Harrier. Currently, the Harrier does not offer the AWD system or features like a sunroof, but soon, it may be added to the vehicle after assessing the demand in the market. The SUV gets powered by a 2.0-litre KRYOTEC diesel engine that generates a maximum of 140 PS and a peak torque of 350 Nm. It gets a 6-speed manual transmission at the moment but will soon get a 6-speed automatic.
