Update: The Tata Harrier has been launched at a very competitive price of Rs 12.69 lakh, ex-showroom Mumbai! All the details here.
1. The Tata Harrier is the most anticipated SUV of 2019. Pegged to be launched in January, the Tata flagship looks close to the H5X concept. The muscular bodywork and the large dimensions lend it a solid road presence.
2. The Harrier’s front is dominated by sleek LED DRLs which are connected by the grille. And because the headlamps are placed lower down, the front looks all the more muscular.
3. The DRLs aren't just laid out as straight lines, but have a lightning bolt like design. In fact, they double up as turn indicators to further add to the drama. The headlamp clusters placed above the foglamps, house Xenon HID projector lamps alongside regular bulbs for the high beam.
4. The grille follows Tata's Impact Design 2.0 philosophy with three horizontal slats in a piano black finish, giving the Tata badge a floating appearance.
5. There’s a faux bash plate at the front of the car which adds to its butch appearance. This makes the Harrier look tougher and more off-road worthy.
6. The ORVMs get a dual-tone paint scheme with a black bottom and body colour of the SUV for the top part. And apart from integrated turn indicators, these mirrors can also project a Tata logo in the top-spec XZ trim.
7. From the side, it is quite reminiscent of the Land Rover Discovery Sport, the SUV with which the Harrier shares its underpinnings.
8. Pictured here are 5-spoke 235/65 R17 wheels which are available in the top two variants. The Harrier gets a disc-drum brake setup. But, the disc here gets a ‘Disc Wiping’ technology for better braking in the wet.
9. While Tata has refrained from using too much chrome on the Harrier, there are some subtle touches on the door handle.
10. The other interesting part of the Harrier's design is the D-pillar. While the quarter glass takes up very little room, the big black background along with the kink in the silver panel and the shoulder line helps highlight the floating roof of the SUV.
11. What immediately strikes attention while looking at it from the rear three quarters is the ‘connected’ taillamp design and the faux exhaust vent.
12. The bumper-mounted exhaust vents are purely cosmetic. The actual exhaust tip is towards the left of the SUV. Tata has also smartly incorporated the rear reflector into the bodywork.
13. Highlights at the rear include the tapering top and a plain bootgate.
14. Length x Width x Height: 4598mm x 1894mm x 1706mm
Ground Clearance: 205mm
Boot Space: 425-litres
Boot Space with Rear Seats Folded: 810-litres
15. The Tata Harrier is powered by a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder Kryotec engine which makes 140 PS of max power at 3750rpm and 350Nm of peak torque from 1750-2500rpm. Mated to this Jeep-sourced engine is a 6-Speed manual transmission. The Harrier will only be available with a manual transmission and there is no word on the introduction of an automatic variant yet.
16. Like the exteriors, the interiors of the Harrier also retain key elements from the concept. The faux-wooden insert on the dashboard, the floating touchscreen infotainment screen and the raised centre tunnel are all reminiscent of the H5X.
17. The cabin layout is quite simple and clean with only three clusters of buttons on the centre console. Even the centre tunnel is neatly laid out with a lift-up style handbrake and two cup holders.
18. The dual-tone steering wheel is wrapped in leather in the top trim and gets controls for audio, calls and Bluetooth.
19. The instrument cluster in the Harrier is a 7-inch colour TFT display which sits to the left of the analogue speedometer. It gets graphics for power and torque, trip details, navigation data and various drive modes.
20. The centre floating touchscreen infotainment system is an 8.8-inch high-resolution display which relays information for the climate control, audio, phone and also supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The physical controls for the infotainment are conveniently placed below the screen.
21. The climate control switches are placed in a cluster below the AC vents in a two-row layout. Second-row occupants get B-pillar-mounted AC vents.
22. There are two cup holders towards the back of the raised centre tunnel along with a lift-up style handbrake, similar to the one on the Mahindra Marazzo. The gear shifter and the mode selector are placed at the front of the tunnel, towards the centre console.
23. For audiophiles, there’s a 9-speaker JBL sound system in the Tata Harrier. And for safety, it offers 6 airbags.
24. The door handles look sturdy and get leather at touchpoints for a more premium feel.
