Tata Motors has officially launched its big SUV Harrier for sale today. How much the SUV has been anticipated can be imagined by the fact that just after the launch, the Harrier has gained three months of waiting period for the delivery.
Available with a diesel engine only, the Harrier is offered in four variants: XE, XM, XT and XZ with the prices starting from ₹ 12.69 lakh going up to ₹ 16.25 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai). As big as the Tata Harrier looks, it is only available as a five seat version only. However, there will be a seven seat version introduced later on.
Harrier is the first vehicle to sport the IMPACT Design 2.0 philosophy. It’s a five seater SUV and looks like a big brother of the Nexon. It carries the similar cool front face with more muscle on the bumpers. From the rear three-quarter, you can see a little glimpse of the Land Rover Discovery’s design.
Powering the Tata Harrier is a 2-liter 4 cylinder turbocharged diesel motor that makes 138 bhp and 350Nm of torque. Currently, the Harrier is only offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox. It can be drive in three different modes: Eco, City and Sport.

The Harrier is a strong proof point of our Turnaround 2.0 strategy and it will be a game changer in the market.
