Introduction

Tata Harrier is a five-seater mid-size SUV launched by Tata Motors in 2019. It is based on the Omega Arc Platform, the same which underpins the Land Rover Discovery and Jaguar F-pace. It is so much similar to its concept, H5X.  Harrier is called Buzzard in the International market as Toyota has copyright for Harrier's name. It is currently positioned below the Hexa and above Nexon. After the discontinuation of Hexa, it will be the flagship offering from Tata Motors in India. It rivals Jeep Compass, Kia Seltos, MG Hector and Mahindra XUV 5OO. There is a 7-seater version soon to hit the market and it will be called Gravitas.

  Engine & Gearbox


Powering the Harrier is a 2.0L Kryotec inline-4, DOHC, turbo-charged diesel engine developed by Fiat India. This same engine is also used to power Jeep Compass and MG hector. Tata has codenamed it Kryotec 170, which depicts that it produces 170 ps of max power or 168 bhp at 3750 rpm and 350 Nm peak torque at 1750 rpm. The power is channeled to front wheels via a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission. It is featured with ESP and terrain management drive modes like offroad, rain and road. It is by far the most capable FWD SUV in the current market.

  Exterior


Harrier is undoubtedly one of the handsome-looking SUVs out there. The design is according to the new Impact 2.0 design language. Starting with the front, it gets a moderate size piano black finished front grille with the Tata logo in the center. LED DRLs are placed high on the bonnet, and grille starts from them.  DRLs also double up as turn signal indicators. Then there is a thin chrome line that underlines the DRL and the grille. The headlamp unit is placed in the bumper. The headlight is a Bi-Xenon projector unit supported by a halogen lamp. Lower both bulbs lie the halogen fog lamp. I don't know, but I think the bulb placement is somewhat similar to the iPhone 11 pro camera setup. A black piano line underlines the headlight, and the chrome line underlines the fog lamp.  The lower bumper is finished in black plastic, which gives it a rough look, but there are no skid plates offered here.
Coming to the side of the car, it is 4598mm long, longer than the 7-seater Xuv5OO. It gets diamond cut dual-tone 17-inch alloy wheels. These wheels are equipped with 235/65 R17 tires, and on the lower variant, we get 235/70 R16 tires with steel wheels. Around the tires, there are big flat squarish wheel arches with black body cladding. This cladding runs underneath the car from the front bumper to the rear. The ORVMs get the dual-tone finish and turn signal indicator on them. We get blackened out B-pillar and C-pillar, which gives it a floating roof-line. Below the roof, there is a chrome line which extends till C-pillar and has Harrier embossed on it. There is a thin chrome running under the window line, and chrome door handles too.


On the rear, we get a body-colored roof-mounted subtle spoiler with brake-light installed in it. The window area is less, and it gets rear wipers and diffuser. The car looks muscular from all angles. The LED tail-lamps are 3D, or simply they bulge out of the car and merges into a piano-black bar with the Tata logo. Harrier lettering is below the license number plate. It gets black plastic rear bumper with skid plate and fake twin exhaust port like design

  Interior


Harrier features one of the luxurious and spacious interiors in its class due to its large dimensions and Tata's new Impact 2.0 Design language. It features a dual-tone Oak brown & black interior. We get a new three-spoke leather-wrapped steering with steering mounted controls. We get a new part-analog part-digital instrument cluster, there is a dial for the speedometer and an 8-inch TFT display for MID and Tachometer. The layout is similar to Nexon and Altroz with tacho on the left and tell-tale lights on the bottom line. The air-con vents on the extreme get a chrome surround. The dash is featured with Oakwood design. On the center of the dash lies an 8.8-inch floating touchscreen instrument cluster. It gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity along with Bluetooth and USB. Below the screen lies its control and horizontal automatic ac vents in the same unit. 


The leather-wrapped gear lever gets the design cues from the new design language. In the front of gear lever or selector in automatic lies, the terrain management system controls and behind it lies the aircraft-style parking brake. The seats are made up of perforated leatherette material and provide proper cushioning and support. The cabin gets 9 JBL speakers and tweeters. The rear seats are wide and spacious and can comfortably seat three adults equipped with rear armrest with cupholders. It is also equipped with a panoramic sunroof with an anti-pinch and rain-sensing closure system. The rear AC vents are mounted on the B pillars.
