Tata Motors has finally taken the covers off their new SUV, the Harrier. The Tata Harrier was first showcased as a concept named Tata H5X at 2018 Auto Expo. It is the most advanced SUV from the stable of Tata Motors. The design of the concept model was very futuristic and stylish and the company has retained the design to the production model.
The projector headlights along with foglamps are housed within the front bumpers and the slim LED DRLs are positioned just above the bumper. The lower section of the car is surrounded by black cladding and skid plate on the front and rear bumper complete the look of the SUV. The floating roof along with upswept rear bumper with a massive departure angle gives the car a very appealing side silhouette.
The Harrier has been developed in close interaction with Jaguar Land-Rover. The monocoque chassis is made on the line which is based on Land Rover’s D8 platform. This assembly line was built in just six months and has 90 percent automation level along with more than 100 robots from KUKA and ABB.
Powering the Harrier is a 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel engine that produces 140 HP. The car will be available in both manual and automatic transmissions. The bookings of this 5-seater SUV have already commenced and it will be launched in early 2019.
