Priced at Rs 16.76 lakh, the Tata Harrier Dark Edition demands a premium of just Rs 21,000 over the top-spec XZ trim. This new variant gets an all-black exterior and black treatment to the interiors as well
Just two months after Tata brought in the Harrier in a dual-tone trim, the company has now introduced a new Dark Edition to kickstart the celebrations of the upcoming festive season. Priced at Rs 16.76 lakh, the Dark Edition is priced identical to the Dual Tone trim and Rs 21,000 over the top-spec XZ variant. All prices ex-showroom Delhi.
Speaking about the new launch, Vivek Srivatsa, Head Marketing, Passenger Vehicles Business Unit, Tata Motors said, 'The colour Black has always been desired amongst car buyers across the SUV segment. To meet these aspirations and to mark the onset of the festive season, we have launched the Harrier #Dark Edition today in a completely new avatar with a compelling package of striking exteriors and inviting interiors with 14 design enhancements. We are confident our customers will appreciate the Harrier in this look as much as they have appreciated the Harrier since its launch.'
So, what’s new in this Dark Edition? As the name rightly suggests, the iteration of the Harrier gets an all-black exterior. The faux skid plates at the front and the rear also get the dark treatment. The headlamps get grey inserts and the alloy wheels, although the same design, are also finished in black. This variant of the Harrier is washed in what Tata calls the Atlas black colour – an option that wasn’t available previously.
There are changes on the inside too. Unlike the chocolate brown and grey combination of the standard car, this one gets an all-black dashboard with the faux wood finish replaced by ‘Blackstone Matrix’ insert. Other changes include black leatherette seats and humanity line finished in gunmetal grey. In terms of equipment, the Harrier Black Edition is on par with the top-spec XZ variant.
There are no mechanical changes to the Harrier Dark Edition. It continues to be powered by a 2.0-litre diesel motor that develops 138bhp and 350Nm. This engine only comes paired with a 6-speed manual transmission for now. The Harrier locks horns against the likes of the MG Hector, Kia Seltos, Hyundai Creta and more.
