New Tata Harrier H5X SUV shows production-ready LED headlight and taillight first time
First ever images of the Tata Harrier H5X wearing production ready headlight and taillights have been spied by TeamBHP member SneakyFunk.
Tata is testing their new Harrier H5X SUV extensively across India. Due for global debut later this year, the car has been spied for the first time wearing production ready LED headlight and tail light. From the spy shots, it is clear that the Harrier will continue to look like the concept.
At the Auto Expo, when the H5X concept was shown, visitors were in awe with the design. They were left even more surprised when Tata announced that about 90% of this will be seen on the production ready variant. Critics found that difficult to believe. But, these spy shots confirm that indeed the production ready Harrier will be a close twin of the H5X concept.
The 5 seater Tata Harrier SUV will launch in India sometime in early 2019. It will be positioned on the Land Rover D8 platform, which also underpins the likes of Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery Sport. The new Tata Harrier will get its power via a MultiJet II diesel engine from FCA which is also seen on the Jeep Compass.
On board the Harrier, this engine will deliver 140 bhp power and 320 Nm torque mated to 6 speed manual and automatic transmission option. There is no confirmation of a petrol engine to be on offer.
About the interiors, spy shots reveal that the instrument cluster follows a simple design format with monotone lighting while speedometer and RPM dials are seen with chrome accents. The MID offers information on fuel levels and consumption, speed and trip meter while the instrument cluster gets various buttons for access to function of the MID.
The steering wheel is in a design similar to that seen on the Tata Tiago with buttons for music and Bluetooth to the left while buttons for cruise control are to the right. Tata Harrier also borrows its design for indicator stalk from the Tiago with integrated light control knobs. The central console gets a touchscreen infotainment system with connectivity options.
Once launched, the Tata Harrier will take on the likes of Hyundai Creta and Jeep Compass. Price expected is in the range of Rs 13-16 lakhs.
