You have to be out of your mind to spend 20 lakh on a Tata. Or not? That’s the question we’re answering in this review of what possibly is Tata’s biggest attempt to jump up the value chain. With the Harrier, it seems like Tata has pulled out all the stops. Beginning with what’s underneath the swanky exterior. It’s based on the D8 platform that also underpins the Land Rover Discovery Sport. But, all the aluminium has been ditched in favour of high-strength steel. Under the hood is a 2.0-litre diesel engine developed by Fiat. Yep, it’s the same motor that also powers the Jeep Compass. But, it makes 140PS of power instead of 173PS, while torque is rated at 350Nm. And while the platform and the engine suggest the Harrier is all-wheel drive, it’s not. Power is sent to the front wheels only. As a consolation, you do get ‘Terrain Response’ modes - Rough Road and Wet. There are three drive modes too — Eco, City and Sport. On the features front, Tata has thrown in quite a whole lot. There’s Xenon projector headlamps, cornering foglamps, 17-inch alloy wheels as well as LED tail lamps. On the inside there’s a soft touch dashboard, and leather upholstery. Infotainment duties are handled by an 8.8-inch touchscreen, a 7-inch display in the instrument cluster and a sweet-sounding 9 speaker JBL audio system. It’s loaded to the brim with safety tech too, including 6 airbags, ABS, ESP, traction control and hill descent control.
