Tata Harrier comes with 14 ESP features. We will be taking look at the top 5 of them. ESP feature safety provides preventive safety. If you want to see all 14 of them we would love if you check out our video further in the article.
What is ESP?
Ok, so before we tell you about the best ESP modes in Harrier it is compulsory to tell you about ESP in general. So ESP stands for the Electronic Stability Program which is a computerized program that improves the vehicle’s stability, traction, and other safety features by effectively using Computers. Don’t worry, your car won’t come with a laptop fixed to it. ESP works with ECU which is the onboard Computer on most modern cars and as the name suggests Electronic Circuit Unit, it is fairly small in size. Now we can proceed further.
It is a large SUV in its segment and demands road presence. The interiors have a premium touch to them, though some areas may look a little down. Both the front and rear seats provide excellent comfort and there is enough space in the rear for 3 full-size adults. The Tata harrier’s boot space is 425Liters and practical.
On 23rd of January 2020, at the Auto Expo, Tata Motors launched its BS6 version of Harrier. It was Tata’s five-seater premium SUV for the Indian Market. The Tata Harrier was made to compete with a full spectrum of rivals starting from Hyundai Creta and MG Hector to Kia Seltos, Mahindra XUV 500, and Jeep Compass.
It was the first car from Tata to be built on a Land Rover platform. Launched in 2019 in diesel-manual form only, the range was expanded with the launch of automatic Transmission in the Diesel avatar. The engine went on to produce 167.67bhp and an ARAI claimed mileage of 17.0km/l. Do follow us on Twitter to get more such updates. Click Here to follow now.
5 Best Modes of ESP
EDTC – Engine Drag Torque Control
Performance bikes have a feature called slipper clutch which prevents engine over-rev and rear-wheel hop during down-shifting or hard-braking in bikes. Similarly, Tata Harrier too has introduced this ESP feature in its car to increase the reliability and life expectancy of its engine and clutch. ECU and Engine work together to maintain the correct rpm for your speed and gear.
TC – Traction Control
How many times during the monsoon you have gunned your accelerator but the car just spins its wheels and refuses to move forwards? Tata decided to address this problem in its car by equipping the Traction control which as the name suggests provides you traction to go off the line from mud, water puddles, slippery roads and lets the car take all the stress. Tips for riding safely in the monsoons
DWTB – Dynamic Wheel Torque by Brake
Are you afraid to drive your car a little fast entering a corner? Is the car not giving you enough confidence to explore its limits? Worry not with this ESP feature Harrier lets you push through the car in a sensible and efficient yet a thrilling way. The ECU will take care of all the parameters.
OABS – Offroad Anti-lock Braking System
ABS with EBD has become a fairly common option in modern cars and Harrier comes with those too. But this feature is very unique and is only present in this car in its segment. If you are buying an SUV you expect it to ride Offroads. The regular ABS won’t help much there but the Offroad Anti Lock Braking System will prove to be a blessing and will stop your car without breaking a sweat.
BDW- Brake Disc Wiping
Many times during monsoon your Discs of the braking system get wet due to water and moisture prevents efficient braking. The brakes revolve 2-3 times drying off the disc and then the brakes are applied. Mostly it is not an issue but in an accident situation every tenth of a second count. This ESP feature regularly keeps your disc and brakes dry for efficiency and does not harm the system in any way.
We expect these safety features to come to other cars too. Improving preventive safety is much more important than post-accident safety like airbags. As we all know Prevention is better than cure!
