The Tata Harrier is currently the best selling SUV in its segment. Quite obviously then, the waiting periods of this popular SUV are sky-high, even crossing three-month mark in several cities. Launched on the 23rd of January this year, the Harrier was one of those cars about which everyone knew that it was going to be a hit. The prices for the Tata Harrier start at Rs. 12.99 lakh for the base XE variant and go all the way up to Rs. 16.55 lakh for the top-end XZ variant both (ex-showroom, Delhi). What we are here to discuss today, though, is about a used Harrier that is available for cheap in the used car market.
That’s right, a barely used Tata Harrier SUV which is being sold by its current owner for Rs. 17.25. The advertisement posted by its seller on popular selling platform Olx says that this is the top-end XZ variant of the Harrier which means that it comes with all the kit and features available with this SUV. The ex-showroom price of the Harrier XZ, as stated above, stands at Rs. 16.55 lakh but the on-road price of this vehicle is Rs. 19,99,820 in Delhi. Since this vehicle carries temporary plates bearing Haryana’s registration number, it can be said the vehicle is quite new. The on-road price of Harrier XZ in Hisar, Haryana (HR 20) is slightly lower at Rs. 19,20,276. You can check out the advertisement posted by the seller here.
Therefore, this Harrier is being sold with a considerable price drop for a vehicle that has not even received its registration number yet. Finished in Ariel Silver shade, it looks pretty good and comes with 17-inch stylish alloy wheels. It is powered by a Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre KRYOTEC diesel engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. This engine churns out 138 Bhp of power along with 350 Nm of torque. The claimed fuel efficiency of the Tata Harrier is 16.79 km/l which is decent if not great for a vehicle of its size.
The most significant part of this deal is whether one should go for it in the first place or not. Frankly speaking, you can consider this deal if you had already set you mind on buying the Harrier. However, there are a few factors that need to be considered. Firstly, if you want to get your hands on a Harrier immediately then this is the deal for you. But if you want that new car smell and fantasy of getting your keys from a dealership, then you can stay away. Staying away also means waiting for a couple of months before you get the keys as waiting periods of this SUV are quite high. Note that this Harrier is also almost new and hence you’ll get to have a significant amount of saving on this one. Moreover, the SUV is available for delivery immediately. So decide wisely and check the vehicle thoroughly before buying if you are in for this deal.
