Tata Harrier Specifications –
Tata Harrier is a full-size SUV which is equipped with the latest gizmos and the powerful diesel mill. This diesel engine on the Harrier is the same KRYOTEC motor unveiled by the Tata Motors earlier. It is a 2.0-litre diesel motor which is able to churn out 140 hp and 350 Nm of torque. Mind you, Tata Safari Storm had a 2.2-litre Vericor diesel motor tuned to deliver 400 Nm of torque. The engine on offer with the Tata Harrier is sourced from Fiat motors which is a very capable motor in fact. Harrier will be available with a 6-manual transmission only and the automatic transmission will be available after some time.
Boot space is 425-litre which increases to 810-litres on folding the rear seats. The 60:40 split option is available as well. Kerb weight of the new Tata Harrier is 1675 kg. The tyres wrapped on the 17-inch wheels of the Tata Harrier are 235/70 R17 section and the spare tyre is one inch smaller in size as per the government rule at 235/70 R16 section.
Now comes the interesting talks in terms of specifications. Tata Harrier gets multi drive-modes to choose from. There is a drive select mode which commands three drive modes Eco, City and Sports. However, Tata Motors will not offer four-wheel drive for now but it will be available soon. There will a terrain response system similar to what you see in a Land Rover. This terrain response system will allow the Harrier SUV to build possible max traction with presets like Wet, Rough and Normal.
Tata Harrier Ground Clearance –
Unladen ground clearance of the car is 205mm. Suspension setup on the Tata Harrier SUV is an independent setup on the front with McPherson struts and a semi-independent twist beam setup at the rear. We have nothing to talk about how the setup actually works until we get a chance to experience the new Harrier SUV on the roads.
Tata Harrier Interior and Features –
There is no denying the fact that Tata Motors has always been offering the best-in-class features. Be it the Tata Tiago or the Tata Nexon, Tata Motors has always equipped their cars with best possible infotainment system as well as other convenience and safety features. Now in the case of Tata Harrier, Tata Motors will equip an 8.8-inch infotainment system. Most importantly, there will be an unseen 7-inch MID. Both these screens are in integration with each other and the system offers turn-by-turn navigation as well as other useful information. The tachometer will be a digital one. The sound from the infotainment system will be powered by a JBL system which is a combination of four speakers, four tweeters and sub-woofer integrated with an amplifier. There is no definite need to confirm the support of Android Auto and AppleCarPlay.
Safety kit includes ABS with EBD and hydraulic brake assist, six airbags, corner stability program, hill-hold and hill-descent assist, roll-over mitigation and ISOFIX child seat mounts. The one thing to complain about is the absence of disc brakes at the rear.
The aids that allow you to drive the new Harrier SUV with ease and comfort include Xenon HID headlamps and 8-way adjustments for driver’s seat.
