After months of wait, Tata Harrier has finally been launched in India. Not pricey as previously expected, the base variant of Tata Harrier is available at a price of Rs 12.7 lakhs, while the top variant is priced at Rs 16.25 lakhs. All prices are ex-showroom. It will take on rivals such as Hyundai Creta, Nissan Kicks, Mahindra XUV500, and Jeep Compass.
Tata Motors has spent a lot of time and effort on developing Harrier and the SUV does offer a compelling value proposition. Among the many things that make Harrier a globally-relevant SUV is Omega Arc (Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced Architecture), which is based on Land Rover’s D8 architecture. Omega Arc is the result of joint efforts by Tata Motors and Jaguar Land Rover. It utilizes monocoque construction that reduces vibrations and noise and provides improved stability and control.
Harrier looks stunning and this is one of many USPs. It is designed to be a head turner. Based on Impact Design 2.0 design philosophy, Harrier has an aerodynamic profile with curves at the right places, which make it visually appealing. Key features include projector headlamps, dual function LED DRLs with turn indicators, electrically adjustable outer mirrors, R17 alloy wheels, flared wheel arches, 3D LED tail lamps and shark fin antenna.
Interiors are just as appealing as the exteriors, featuring Oakwood themed dashboard and colour scheme. Oakwood theme can also be seen on seat upholstery and door pad inserts. Harrier’s luxurious feel is further accentuated by satin chrome accents that can be seen on door handles, instrument panel, steering wheel, and AC vents. With its wide body and long wheelbase, Harrier has plenty of space for passengers.
Harrier offers a comprehensive range of features such as 8.8-inch HD touchscreen infotainment system, 7-inch coloured TFT display, 9-speaker JBL audio system, steering mounted controls, FATC control, auto headlamps, push button start, cruise control, theatre dimming, power windows, fast charging slots, rain sensing wipers, and 8-way adjustable driver seat.
