Tata Harrier was one of the most anticipated SUV from Indian manufacturer. It is based on H5X concept showcased at Auto Expo 2018 and was launched in the market early last year. Harrier quickly became popular among buyers because of its looks, price and features on offer. It competes with cars like Kia Seltos, MG Hector and recently launched Hyundai Creta in the segment. Even though it looks like a rugged off-road SUV, it is only available in a 2WD version. Here we have a video that shows a BS4 Tata Harrier being across a rocky stream without any trouble.
The video has been uploaded by Y channel on youtube. The vide simply shows a BS4 Tata Harrier approaching a rocky stream and simply crosses it without too much drama. There were some big rocks in the stream but, Tata Harrier managed to go across all over them without hitting the bottom. It had ample ground clearance which came in handy while crossing this bit of the river.
The wheels did not lose traction and managed to go on a straight line. One of the intelligent feature that Harrier comes with is a terrain response system. It has Normal, Wet and Rough road modes which fiddles with traction and throttle response which helps Harrier get out of tricky situation even after being a 2WD SUV. The driver might have turned the knob to any of those modes or it is quite possible that he driving it normally.
Tata Harrier recently got an update few months ago and is now BS6 compliant. The 2020 version of the SUV has received few changes like a revised ORVM, new colour options and alloy wheels on the outside. Inside, it still retain the old layout of the BS4 version but has additional features like a panoramic sunroof, auto-dimming IRVM, electrically adjustable driver seat and so on.
One of the biggest change in the Harrier is that it now gets an automatic transmission which was missing in the BS4 version. The 2.0 litre turbo diesel engine in the BS4 version which is seen in the video used to produce 140 PS and 350 Nm of torque. The BS6 version now generates 30 Ps more and same amount of torque as before. With all these updates, the prices for Tata Harrier has also gone up and the prices now start at Rs 13.69 lakh, ex-showroom.
