Tata's new SUV, Harrier, gets spotted testing with production-ready headlights

The Harrier will be powered by the Multijet II engine from FCA, as seen in the Jeep Compass.


A new set of spy images have revealed more details about the upcoming Tata Harrier SUV. This time around, the SUV seems to have moved one step closer to its final production spec. This example seems to be fitted with its final production spec headlamps.

From what can be seen from these images, the Harrier seems to be following the recent trend of car makers placing headlamps lowered down the vehicle front fascia and not in line with the grille. LED DRLs instead take up this spot in what could be a neat ploy to better handle the visual heft of the car. This has been seen SUVs like the new Hyundai Kona and the pre-facelift version of this generation of the Jeep Cherokee. The taillamps also seem to have not changed drastically from the H5X concept shown earlier this year, with the rear shown some clear Land Rover influence.

The Harrier will be powered by the Multijet II engine from FCA, as seen in the Jeep Compass. This motor will be supplied in two states of tune — 140PS for the 5-seater version and 170PS for the 7-seater. Both two and four-wheel drive will be available and transmission options will be a 6-speed manual and automatic. The 5-seater should come in the Rs 9 to 12 lakh price bracket.

The Harrier SUV is expected to be priced around the Rs 12 lakh mark and compete with the likes of the Hyundai Creta and also the lower spec versions of the Jeep Compass. The SUV will go on sale in early 2019 with production taking place at Tata's Pune plant.
