Tata Harrier is priced between Rs.12.69 lakhs to Rs.16.25 lakhs. The SUV has been well received in the country, commanding a waiting period of 3 months. Tata Harrier is based on the Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced Architecture derived from Land Rover’s D8 Architecture. Those who have taken delivery, are in love with their new SUV.
But, there are many who have been complaining about lack of good colour options with Harrier. Currently, Tata Harrier is presented in five mono color schemes of Calisto Copper, Thermisto Gold, Ariel Silver, Telesto Grey, and Orcus White.
However, a Tata Motors dealership, Wasan Motors of Borivali, Mumbai recently delivered a Harrier in white colour with black roof. This modified dual tone Harrier in an Orcus White color scheme with a contrasting piano black roof delivery video went viral on social media. On Youtube alone, it has garnered about 8 lakh views. This shows how popular dual tone colour options are, especially in a car which is priced in the Rs 15-20 lakh range. Automotive rendering artist Pratyush Rout has now imagined more dual tone colour options of Harrier, which are inspired by Nexon colour options we have already seen in the market.
Blue has been the communication colour of Nexon SUV. Even the concept, which was first showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo, was seen in a Blue shade with silver roof. This colour option made it to the production variant as well. Considering the number of blue Nexon we see on our roads, one can say that it is also a crowd favourite. This same blue with silver roof treatment has now been given to the Harrier, and it does look great. Nexon’s blue suits the Harrier very well.
Second dual tone colour option imagined for the Harrier is Yellow with Black roof. Nexon is not available in Yellow colour officially. But, a yellow coloured Nexon was launched last year by an authorized Tata dealer. The same treatment is now given to Harrier, digitally.
Third dual tone colour option, is also the most easily accessible as Harrier is available in white body colour officially. The single tone Orcus White body is complemented by a piano black roof and pillars while ORVMs are also painted in black. This dual tone color scheme was recently delivered to a customer as a dealer level modification, and it costs an additional sum of Rs.40,000.
This is exclusively a cosmetic enhancement and the white bodied and black roofed Tata Harrier carries no other major modification. It can be noted here that compared to single tone colour options, the dual tone colour options does make the Tata Harrier look more appealing. Let’s hope Tata officially launches dual tone options with Harrier soon.
