Tata Harrier that was launched in the market last year is currently the flagship SUV from the brand. It quickly became popular among buyers because of its looks, features and Land Rover pedigree. Tata also launched the BS6 version of Harrier in market with minor updates. Even though, Harrier comes with terrain modes and other features, it is not a proper 4×4 SUV. Here we have a rendered image that shows what the Tata Harrier would look like if it were to be modified as an off-road SUV.
The render has been created alpha_renders on their Instagram page. They have reimagined the regular BS6 Harrier into a hardcore off-roader. Harrier was already a good looking SUV in the segment and this off-road avatar looks even more butch and dominating. The artist has made several changes to give Harrier this look. Starting with the front, the stock bumper has been replaced with an off-road bumper.
The bumper has fog lamps, auxiliary lamps and LED bars installed on it and there is a skid plate and tow hooks on the bumper as well. Moving to the side profile, there is a snorkel coming out from the side fender. It looks like the SUV now sits higher than the stock version. The off-road ready chunky tyres and all black alloy wheels add character to this SUV. There is a foot board and there is roof rack on top which can hold things like bags, Jerry cans and other items. It also has Hummer-like lights installed on the roof.
The rear of the car is not visible in the image but, it looks like the rear bumper was also replaced with an off-road bumper. Overall, Tata Harrier in off-road avatar looks very promising and the artist has definitely done a very neat job with the rendering. Tata Harrier is powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged diesel engine that generates 170 Ps and 350 Nm of peak torque. The engine is available with 6-speed manual and Hyundai sourced 6-speed automatic gearbox option. Tata is currently working on Gravitas and is expected to be launched in the market later this year or early next year. The Gravitas will have three rows of seating to accommodate 7 people, and will be longer than the Harrier. It will have the same engine-gearbox combinations as the Harrier, and will also be based on the same platform.
