Tata To Launch Dual Tone Harrier Soon

  • Jul 02, 2019

Leading Indian carmaker Tata Motors has released a series of pictures on the internet that indicate that the company is all set to launch the Harrier compact sports utility vehicle (SUV) in dual tone paint schemes. The images suggest that the car will be available in the Calisto Copper-Black (black-on-orange) and Ariel Silver-Black (black-on-silver) colour options. In both cases, the silver and orange will be the main body colours. The roofs of the dual tone models will be finished in contrasting black.

The Tata Harrier can be accessorized with official roof decals. Full-length roof wraps, however, were offered as dealer extras. The dual tone models are expected to cost around ₹60,000 more than the monotone versions. The Harrier will continue to be available in the Thermisto Gold, Ariel Silver, Calisto Copper, Orcus White, and Telesto Grey colours. The Orcus White, however, is available only on the entry-level XE model.

Tata Motors has lent minor updates to the assembly line version of the Harrier since the car was unveiled earlier this year. The car’s touchscreen infotainment system now supports Apple CarPlay. That aside, a seven-seat version of the Harrier is expected to be introduced later this year. It is likely to get a new diesel engine mated to a Hyundai-sourced automatic transmission (AT) system. A new petrol motor is also on the cards. The BS-VI compliant diesel motor, which debuted in the Jeep Compass Trailhawk, is expected to haul the Tata Harrier albeit with a more powerful tuning.

The Harrier is hauled by a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel motor which produces 350Nm peak torque and 140PS peak power. The 4-cylinder engine is mated to a 6-speed manual gear system. The car is available in the XE, XM, XT, and XZ trims. The Harrier’s entry-level price is ₹12.99 lakh. It faces competition from the Morris Garages (MG) Hector, Jeep Compass, and the upcoming Kia Seltos in its segment.
