Tata Harrier: a brief recap

The Tata Harrier range was recently updated with ventilated seats, wireless Android Auto and Apple Carplay, and an air purifier after the introduction of the Kaziranga variant. In 2020, the Harrier received a heavy update and in its current iteration, the FCA-sourced 2.0-liter diesel engine now makes 70 PS of power and 350 NM of torque. Another new addition was the panoramic sunroof which comes with 3 user-friendly switches and rain-sensing closure.

The ORVMs are now smaller in size because the older ones were a tad too big and hampered visibility. Based on Impact Design 2.0 design philosophy, Tata Harrier is a handsome car with some class-leading features. Tata borrowed the DNA from Land Rover to develop the Harrier and it definitely shows as it gets different terrain response modes too and is based on Land Rover’s D8 platform. It also comes with driving modes that change the overall characteristics of the car depending on the mode chosen.

Harrier doesn’t fall short in the feature list either as it comes with a host of connectivity options which include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay with integrated voice recognition which takes care of navigation, music, and phone calls among many other things. Other features which increase the overall comfort and convenience include a 6-way powered driver seat, rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlamps, rear AC vents, and 28 utility spaces.
