Tata Harrier SUV with dual-tone paint scheme teased
Tata Motors has released a teaser image of the upcoming dual tone paint option for the Tata Harrier SUV. The Harrier's orange and white shades, called Orcus White and Calisto Copper, will now be available with a contrasting black roof.
Other than this, the SUV is expected to remain unchanged. Notable features on the Harrier are LED DRLs, HID xenon headlamps, cornering fog lamps, auto headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, leather upholstery, leather trimmed steering wheel, climate control, an 8.8-inch infotainment system with nine JBL speakers, a reversing camera, cruise control, keyless entry and go and an 8-way adjustable driver's seat. The Harrier gets a seven-inch digital display on the instrument cluster as well.
Under the Harrier's hood is the FCA-sourced 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine, dubbed Kryotec by Tata Motors. It has been detuned in the interest of better fuel efficiency. The engine offers 140PS in this guise, unlike the 173PS it offers in the Compass and in the recently launched MG Hector, though the torque output for the Harrier is identical at 350Nm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and this is the only engine-gearbox combination on offer currently and while an automatic transmission is expected, there is no timeline for that yet. Dual airbags and ABS with EBD are standard safety equipment.
The Harrier is based on Jaguar Land Rover's entry-level D8 SUV platform, variations of which support cars like the Land Rover Discovery Sport, Jaguar E-Pace and the Range Rover Evoque. Tata's version, called Omega-Arc (Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced Architecture) involves the use of cost-effective materials and components.
Tata Motors recently revised prices for the Harrier. The SUV has become slightly dearer now, with prices starting at Rs 12.99 lakh for the base XE and going up to Rs 16.55 lakh, ex-showroom Mumbai, for the XZ trim. We think Tata Motors will offer the dual-tone option on the XT and XZ trims, at a Rs 30,000 to 40,000 premium.
