Tata Harrier With 7-seat Configuration Spied

  • Feb 26, 2019

It was in January 2019 when the CEO of Tata Motors, Guenter Butschek confirmed the launch of 7-seater Harrier in India. While the launch is slated to happen later this year, the test mule has been spotted doing rounds covered with a heavy camouflage cover. However, we can still infer enough about the upcoming 7-seater Harrier.

At the front, the 7-seater Harrier gets headlamps with DRLs mounted on the bumper, similar to what we see on the standard Harrier. Over the sides, the 7-seater SUV gets a new set of alloy wheels, which look bigger than the standard 17-inch alloys and new striking roof rails. The running boards are present, just like in the case of the standard Harrier, offered as an accessory.

Dimension-wise, some reports suggest that the 7-seater SUV will be 62mm longer than its standard counterpart. Also, by looking at the bigger rear quarter glass on the test mule, the reports seem to hold more importance. It is also likely that the company is planning to make a little more room for the third-row occupants.

The rear section looks quite flat and upright, which is very unlikely to the standard Harrier that comes with a curved back. The 7-seater Harrier gets a bigger windshield at the back in addition to a leaner rear bumper and a restyled tailgate. The taillamps, on the other hand, look similar to the ones on the standard Harrier.

Although the interior spy shots are not out yet, there is a high possibility that the automaker won’t modify anything that’s on offer with standard Harrier, except the fact that a new third row will be in place.

At heart, a tuned Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre diesel engine is expected to be included that also powers the Jeep Compass. The standard Harrier produces a max power of 140 PS and a peak torque of 350 Nm, while the outgoing Jeep Compass pumps out 173 PS of power and 350 Nm of torque. On the transmission front, the new 7-seater SUV is expected to get a 6-speed automatic torque converter sourced from Hyundai. The same transmission can be found on the present-gen Hyundai Tucson.

Competing against the likes of the Mahindra XUV500, 7-seater MG Hector (if launched in India) and sibling Tata Hexa, the Tata Harrier 7-seater is expected to be priced between Rs 14 lakh and Rs 18 lakh (ex-showroom).
