Tata Motors had first launched Harrier in India back in January of 2019 and the SUV received a strong initial response. Subsequent months, however, saw newer rivals like Kia Seltos and MG Hector clawing at its gains and eventually leaving it behind. Tata Motors then launched the BS 6 compliant Harrier SUV in February of 2020 to reclaim lost glory.
With the 2020 update to the Harrier, the SUV have been given updates like an automatic transmission, slimmer ORVMs, new 17-inch diamond-cut DT alloy wheels, auto-dimming IRVM, and much more. Also it gets a panaromic sunroof, which is claimed to be the biggest-in-segment.
Moreover, the Harrier now also comes with a more powerful 2.0-litre diesel engine which now generates 170 PS of maximum power and 350 Nm of peak torque. The new gearbox unit is a 6-speed automatic transmission which has been sourced from Hyundai. For the record, this is the same transmission which was found on the pre-facelift Hyundai Tucson.
The 2020 Tata Harrier rivals the likes of other SUVs in its segment such as the recently launched all-new Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos and also the MG Hector. The 2020 Creta has been priced in a lower bracket of ₹9.99 lakh* to ₹17.20 lakh*. And even at a lower price, it has some very bold features which make it a very intimidating package.
