Tata Motors has announced that it will be launching its new flagship SUV, the Harrier on 23 January 2019. The Harrier is underpinned by the same D8 platform that also underpins the Land Rover Discovery Sport. Tata has already announced that it will be priced between Rs 17-21 Lakh on road in India which puts it right in the firing line of the Jeep Compass.

The Harrier is also powered by the same 2.0-litre Multijet diesel that powers the Jeep Compass. The Compass does retain a higher tune of 173PS and 380Nm of torque, whereas the Harrier makes do with 140PS, but same 350Nm of torque. Despite the power deficit, the Harrier is significantly larger than the Compass, but still weighs under 1600kg without fluids. The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox which drives the front wheels.

At launch, the Harrier will be offered with a diesel-manual combo only. There is no 4WD on offer as well and it is unlikely that it will be offered in the future either. But despite the lack of 4WD, the Harrier does come with an ESP-based terrain response system that does make the Harrier capable enough to handle the rough stuff. There will be no 4WD but a seven-seater version however is likely be introduced at a later stage.
