The customization has been done by arwrap786. The videos are also shared on his Instagram. We can see that the SUV has a matte green wrap with a camouflage pattern running on the hood, sides and at the rear. The SUV has also been de-chromed. So, the Tata badges and the Harrier badges are now finished in black instead of chrome.
The front grille is also finished in matte black colour. At the rear, the LED tail lamps have been given a smoked effect and the alloy wheels are also black in colour. Overall, the Harrier now looks more aggressive than the stock one. We do not know if there are any changes to the interior as well.
The cost of the wrap is not mentioned in the Instagram post. However, wraps start from somewhere around Rs. 30,000 and can cost lakhs. It all depends on the quality of the wrap that the person wants. A wrap is a great way to protect the original paint of the vehicle and if the wrap gets damaged or scratched then the person can simply remove it and put on a new one by going to a customization shop.
A wrap can transform the look of a vehicle significantly. It helps in making the vehicle unique because it is done according to the owner’s preferences. Having said that, traffic cops can stop a vehicle that has been wrapped. This is because it is still not clear whether wraps are legal in India or not.
Tata Motors themselves use to offer a Camo Green colour which was recently discontinued because it was a limited edition. Tata’s camo green colour was finished in a glossy jungle green colour which made the Harrier stand out from other vehicles. Tata updated the Dark Edition of the Harrier this year and people have been liking the Dark Editions that Tata offers with its vehicles.
Price and Rivals
The Harrier starts at Rs. 14.39 lakhs ex-showroom and go all the way up to Rs. 21.09 lakhs ex-showroom. There are six variants of the Harrier on offer, namely six trims: XE, XM, XT, XT+, XZ, and XZ+.
It goes against other mid-size SUVs such as Mahindra XUV700, MG Hector, Mahindra Scorpio and Jeep Compass. Because of its pricing, the Harrier also has to compete with the higher variants of Skoda Kushaq, Kia Seltos, Volkswagen Taigun and Hyundai Creta.
Engine and gearbox
Tata Motors offers the Harrier only with a diesel engine. It is a 2.0-litre unit that is sourced from Fiat. We have seen the same engine on the MG Hector and Jeep Compass. Tata calls its iteration, Kyrotec and it produces 170 PS of max power and 350 Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
