  • The three-row SUV will be based on Concept H7X that debuts at Geneva Motor Show in March.
  • Interior is expected to be identical to the Harrier, save for the addition of extra seats.
  • FCA-sourced 2.0-litre diesel engine is expected to be uptuned to suit the added weight.

The Harrier’s elder sibling is closer to production than you and I initially thought! A set of spy pics show Tata’s full-size SUV testing. And, compared to the five-seat Harrier, it’s easy to tell this one apart.

What immediately grabs attention, is the altered design of the D-pillar and the boot. Where the Harrier features a design that gently slopes towards the rear and tucks into the hatch, the seven-seater has a more upright design. The test mule also sports a set of roof rails that aren’t offered on the Harrier. Finally, the spied SUV seems to be running on 18-inch alloy wheels from the Discovery Sport.

And that’s because under the skin, the seven-seater (and its little sibling, the Harrier) is based on a derivative of Land Rover’s L550 platform, that Tata calls ‘OmegaARC’. Mechanically, Tata will employ the same 2.0-litre diesel engine that we’ve seen in the Harrier. But, to suit the added weight and size of the seven-seater, expect a higher output of 173PS/350Nm instead of 140PS/350Nm. Transmission options will include a 6-speed manual, as well as a 6-speed torque converter automatic. We aren’t getting our hopes up for a four-wheel drive version.

Inside, the seven-seat avatar is expected to be identical to the Harrier, save for the added seats. This means goodies such as the 8.8-inch touchscreen, 7-inch digital driver display, automatic climate control and leather upholstery will be on offer in the top-spec variant.

Expect a launch by the festive season this year. Tata has managed to get us excited with the stellar pricing of the Harrier, and we’re expecting more of the same with the seven-seater. Prices are likely to start at Rs 14 lakh and top out at Rs 18 lakh (ex-showroom).
