The 2020 Tata Harrier arrives with a BS-VI update and some important, upmarket features like an automatic gearbox and a panoramic sunroof.
Tata Motors has launched the much-awaited BS-VI version of the Harrier at the Auto Expo today, with prices starting from ₹13.69 lakh for the manual versions and ₹16.25 lakh for the automatic derivatives. Like before, the 2020 Harrier goes on sale in the XE, XM, XT, and XZ variants. But this time, Tata has also launched two new range-topping variants – the XZ+ (manual) and XZA+ (automatic). Speaking of automatic, the Harrier will be available with a 6-speed torque converter automatic in the XMA, XZA, & XZA+ versions.
The biggest update that the new Harrier has received is an uprated powertrain. The 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel engine is good for 168bhp in its BS-VI avatar (now the same as the Jeep Compass), which is a significant bump over the 138bhp figure. The torque remains unchanged at 350Nm.
Aesthetically, the new Tata Harrier gets re-designed 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, reprofiled wing mirrors, and a new calypso red exterior colour option. In terms of features, the new XZ+ and XZA+ get highly anticipated features, such as a panoramic sunroof, a 6-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, and an auto-dimming IRVM.
Bookings for the 2020 Harrier had started just two days back, at ₹30,000.
