The Tata Harrier is coming soon. The company has just revealed its official production name. Now, this new SUV will be Tata Motors first SUV that will be sharing its platform with the Land Rover family. There is already a lot of excitement amongst buyers, who have been waiting for this new SUV. Now, what makes it special over the competition? Why should you wait for it? We share the Top 5 reasons why you should wait for the Tata Harrier.
Land Rover platform
Think Global build local, can be a term used for the Harrier. This new SUV will be build on the Land Rover platform. This makes it a great move from the Indian auto giant to produce a world-class product that is highly localised. This new product will also give the company access to international markets, especially the developed ones.
The new engine on the Harrier will be a Fiat multijet engine. This is the same engine that is used on the Compass. A 2.0-litre diesel that churns about 170bhp of power and 350Nm of peak power. This engine will come mated to a six-speed manual transmission and Tata will be using its own six-speed automatic transmission. This will make it a great option to consider.
Cheaper than Compass
Tata Motors will be making the Harrier in the same Ranjangaon plant like the Jeep Compass. It share the same engine and it will be based on a Land Rover platform instead of a Fiat platform. This will even be more affordable than the Compass. At the same time, Tata Motors has a better service network and even more affordable in service.
Land Rover off road technology
The Tata Harrier will not just be built on the Land Rover platform, but even have the Land Rover off road technology too. Expect the Terrain Response system (with some modification and different name) to be used on the Harrier. This will be a highly capable off roader than the Compass, as the TrailHawk is still to come to India.
If you leave everything aside, the styling of this vehicle will be phenomenal. Looking at the teaser images, this vehicle will not just look stylish, but even highly feature loaded too. The Impact 2.0 design language will have a lot of buyers moving towards it.
