Tata Motors all set to be entering the highly competitive mid-size SUV segment with the Harrier. The Harrier, scheduled for release in January next-year, is of the most anticipated vehicles in recent times here. Not long ago, the Harrier was spied undergoing testing, this time in production form.
The mid-size SUV was seen wrapped in very less camouflage and was snapped while on road tests. We can see the Harrier having an imposing stance, giving it a distinct look. The Harrier is based on the OMEGA platform which is used in various Jaguar and Land Rover models here.
This platform will see some alterations in order to reduce production costs. Tata will be importing the Harrier to various emerging markets across the world based on demand. The Harrier will be available in a 5-seat configuration, with space being given core importance.
On the engine front, the Harrier will come powered by a 2.0-litre, turbocharged, KRYOTEC diesel engine delivering 140 BHP of power and 320 Nm of torque. It will come mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox, with an automatic version being offered as an option.
As far as its pricing is concerned, we can expect Tata Motors to introduce an aggressive price tag for the Harrier, undercutting its main rivals. These include the Jeep Compass, Hyundai Creta, Renault Duster and the upcoming Nissan Kicks. Bookings have recently been opened for the Harrier and deliveries will begin by the end of January-2019.
