Ahead of the launch, here is a quick recap of the car's highlights.

2019 Tata Harrier: Design and Key Highlights

The Tata Harrier SUV is engineered on the new Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced Architecture (OMEGA), which is derived from Land Rover's D8 architecture and developed in collaboration with Jaguar Land Rover.

On the front, the SUV has a dual tone bumper with chrome guards, xenon HID projector headlamps and dual function LED DRLs with turn indicators. It has flared wheel arches that house 5-spoke alloy wheels.

As for its specifications, the Tata SUV comes with a 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel engine that makes 140 PS of maximum power and 350 Nm of torque. All that power is transferred to the front wheels via a six-speed manual transmission.

Harrier offers three driving modes — Eco, City and Sport — that you can switch to depending on the terrain. Despite having a front wheel drive system, you do get terrain response modes here with normal, wet and rough modes to choose from. This, however, works in tandem with the driving modes and there's no option for drivers to alter that.

On the inside, the Harrier features an oak brown scheme with leather on the steering wheel and the seat upholstery. The dashboard has a soft touch finish with more leather inserts on the door pads.

The Harrier also features fully automatic temperature control with HVAC, rear AC vents, push-button start, an eight-way adjustable driver seat and other features like the cooled storage box.

In terms of safety, there are six airbags and an advanced electronic stability program (ESP) with added functionalities such as ABS with EBD, Electronic Traction Control, Electronic Stability Control, Hill Hold Control, Hill Descent Control, Brake Disc Wiping and Hydraulic Brake Assist.
