The Tata Harrier is pretty much everything that a SUV buyer in India is looking for in this particular segment. With the 2020 update, the SUV got the much-needed comfort of the automatic gearbox with more power and a panoramic sunroof, which is a cherry on the cake. The Harrier has been offered in various trims, however, its XTA variant was discontinued a while back. However, rumours suggest that Tata Motors is considering launching the Tata Harrier XTA automatic transmission model in the coming future. In this article, we will talk about the things we know regarding this move from the automaker.

Harrier XTA: launch and features expectations 

After the launch of the new Dark range from Tata Motors, the XTA variant of the Harrier is expected to make a comeback in the market in coming months. On the other hand, the automatic transmission is currently available on the XMA, XZA and the XZA+ variants. The upcoming XTA is expected to be placed between the XMA and the XZA trims. The XTA is expected to get all the features from the lower trims, XT and XT+.

It will get features on the XT variant that are – a panoramic sunroof from the XT+, JBL sound system, Android Auto/Apple CarPlay, ISOFIX child seat fittings, auto-dimming IRVMs, reverse parking camera and 60:40 rear foldable seats. The car will also get 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, push start stop button, automatic climate control and rain sensing wipers. For many buying the XMA variant, the XTA will be a better choice to choose.

Engine and gearbox details

Talking about the engine and gearbox, we are not expecting any changes as the Harrier will continue to feature a Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel engine which comes mated to a six-speed torque-converter gearbox and is capable of producing 168bhp and 350Nm of torque.

We can expect Tata Motors to launch the XTA trim in Dark and Camo colour schemes as seen in XT, XT+, XZ, XZ+,XZA and XZA+ variants.
