The compact SUV Tata Harrier made its world debut in 2019 and it is a big step forward for the Indian manufacturer. A pleasant surprise into a crowded market, but unfortunately, the Harrier doesn't leave India, though it might have had a big impact on the European market.
The 4.6-meter (181-in) long SUV promises to accommodate up to five people and 425 liters (15 cu-ft) of luggage, but it can extend to almost double that, with the rear seats folded down: 810 liters (28.6 cu-ft).
Big surprises are on the inside, where the Indian company has tried to do bold moves, with a wooden covered dashboard, leather seats, and an up-to-date instrument cluster and infotainment system. Customers will have up to three USB ports in front and rear. As expected, the touch-screen floating-type display mounted on top of the dashboard supports both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Technologically speaking, Tata made a big step forward with a new platform architecture, which is called the OMEGA (Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced Architecture). It is based on high-strength steel and a unibody safety cell.
The Tata Harrier is offered with a 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine, which offers 170 HP. Depending on the trim level, this can be coupled either with a 6-speed automatic transmission or with a 6-speed manual transmission. Both variants are front-wheel driven and there is no option for an AWD system.
