Tata Celebrates 1 Year Of The Harrier With A Price Hike??


This is the second price hike since its launch a year ago

 

  • The SUV is now priced from Rs 13.44 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
  • The price hike could be to soften the blow of the probable price revision due to BS6 upgrades.
  • An automatic gearbox could also be added to the upcoming BS6-compliant Harrier.
  • The Gravitas (7-seater Harrier) is slated for a February 2020 reveal.

Tata Motors has been hard at work to keep the Harrier SUV relevant against newcomers like the MG Hector and Kia Seltos with a variety of warranty plans and a stealthy Dark Edition. However, the carmaker’s recent decision on the Harrier isn’t going to win it favours against the competition.  

As we approach one year since the Harrier was launched, the carmaker has silently hiked the prices yet again. This hike follows the price revision in June 2019. The Harrier is now dearer by up to Rs 45,000 and the range is now priced from Rs 13.44 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). 

For reference, prices for the base variant have gone up by nearly Rs 80,000, while that of the top-spec XZ variant is up by a whopping Rs 95,000 since the Harrier debuted on January 19, 2019. Here’s a detailed comparison of the old (December 2019) and new prices.

Rs 17.31 lakh

Rs 16.86 lakh

Rs 45,000

XZ Dual Tone

Rs 17.31 lakh

Rs 16.96 lakh

Rs 35,000

Judging from the table above, the XE, XM, XT and XZ variants have received a price hike of up to Rs 44,000. The XT and XZ Dark Edition variants have had the highest hike at Rs 45,000. The lowest price increment is on the XZ Dual Tone variant at Rs 35,000. This makes the XZ Dual Tone and Dark Edition variants priced equally.

Expectedly, this price hike brings with it no new features or additions. The Harrier soldiers on with goodies such as an 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Car Play and Android Auto, cruise control, a 7-inch driver display, climate control, and auto headlamps. Safety features consist of six airbags, ABS+EBD, ESC, traction control as well as rear parking sensors with a rear camera. We are expecting the Harrier’s feature list to get richer with the BS6 model, though. 

Under the hood, the SUV is powered by a 2.0-litre diesel engine that puts out 140PS of power and 350Nm of torque, paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox. Tata is currently working on a BS6-compliant iteration of the SUV with more power and a Hyundai-sourced automatic transmission. 

Harrier will continue to hold out against the likes of the Mahindra XUV500, MG Hector, Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos in the market.
