Tata Harrier has been the top choice for many when it comes to buying a mid-size SUV. The car has been selling really well ever since its introduction in the Tata Motors’ lineup for the country. Mahindra is also bringing its updated Scorpio that will launch in the coming time. The current Mahindra Scorpio looks a bit outdated when compared with the competition. With the new one coming, we have got down to thinking whether the Tata Harrier buyers will like the upcoming Mahindra Scorpio, and this article will exactly deal with that. Let’s go.
Tata Harrier took the design game to the next level when it entered the market. The car, which is based on the Impact 2.0 design language was warmly welcomed. The eye-brow LED DRLs and the main headlamp housing close to the bumper gave this car a unique look. The upcoming Scorpio also looks really promising when it comes to the design elements. The car will get stylish headlamps that will enhance the overall modern quotient of the car. Also, the alloy wheels and the bumpers have been redesigned to give it a much premium appeal. This factor must push you to think about whether you should wait for the upcoming Mahindra Scorpio.
The Tata Harrier comes powered by a 2.0-litre Kryotec engine that makes 168bhp and 350Nm of torque. This engine is one of the few units with the highest power-producing capacity in its segment. This unit comes mated to manual as well as automatic gearboxes. The Scorpio, on the other hand, might come powered by a 2.0-litre mStallion 150 TGDi petrol which produces 150bhp and 300Nm of torque. The diesel engine setup for the Scorpio is also expected to be the one that powers the new Thar. Both the engines might be offered with automatic options as well.
Cabin space & comfort
The Tata Harrier is a 5-seater whereas the Mahindra Scorpio will be a 7-seater. The Harrier feels comfortable on the inside because it is based on a monocoque chassis. Also, the suspension setup has been tuned for a comfortable ride. The upcoming Scorpio similar to the current one will be based on the ladder-on-frame chassis, however, we expect Mahindra to bring the car with independent suspensions, in order to increase the comfort level on the inside.
Tata Harrier vs the upcoming Mahindra Scorpio Features
Harrier gets features like a panoramic sunroof, a 9-speaker premium JBL sound system, 14 ESP modes, an 8.8-inch floating touchscreen and connected car technology (iRA). Mahindra Scorpio, on the other hand, is expected to come with connected car tech (Blue Link), an electric sunroof, 3rd-row amenities like AC vents & charging ports, front parking sensors, a touchscreen infotainment system, automatic AC, AWD and cruise control.
Should Tata Harrier buyers wait for the upcoming Mahindra Scorpio?
If you wish to explore more options other than Harrier and what the current market has to offer, you should definitely wait for the Mahindra Scorpio. However, be ready for a long wait as the launch details are not out and we believe the upcoming Scorpio might still be far. If you are in a hurry and have zeroed on to the Tata Harrier, you should go for it.
