Tata Motors has recently launched the updated 2020 Harrier with a lot more features and a BS6-compliant engine that belts out more power than BS4 version
With the advent of BS6 norms being merely days away, car manufacturers have been offering huge discounts on leftover stocks of BS4 cars. However, some manufacturers are also offering some lucrative discounts on their BS6 cars in order to maintain a steady sales momentum during the end of the fiscal. The latest to join the bandwagon is Tata Motors, which is offeing an exchange offer of Rs 30,000 on the recently updated Harrier. The discount is being offered as a part of Tata’s Festive Navratri Celebration. It is available on both manual and automatic versions.
Tata Motors is now offering an exchange bonus of Rs. 30,000 on the updated BS-6 Harrier.
The Harrier was initially launched in early 2019 with a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine that was offered with a 6-speed manual transmission only. The engine belted out 140 PS and 350 Nm as its peak output. However, with the update, the engine now produces 170PS and 350Nm as its peak output. It is now offered with a Hyundai-sourced 6-speed AT as an option alongside the 6-speed MT. Also, the engine complies with Bharat Stage 6 emission norms that will come into effect from coming April 1.
Apart from these changes to the powertrain and drivetrain, Harrier now gets a revamped feature list. It now features a panoramic sunroof with anti-pinch and rain-sensing auto-close function. The ORVMs, which were criticised for creating a big blindspot are now redesigned and the issue is largely resolved. With the use of electronically-diming IRVM and electronically adjustable driver seats, the car now justifies its price quite easily. Also, the car now gets dual-function LED DRLs, brake disc wiping, ESP, roll-over mitigation, and traction control as standard fitment across the range, which was not the case with the BS-4 version of the car.
With the introduction of an automatic transmission, the Harrier is now offered in a total of 8 variants, namely XE, XM, XMA, XT, XZ, XZA, XZ plus, and XZA plus. Talking of the paint schemes, the Thermisto Gold, Arielle Silver and Callisto Copper paint shades have been discontinued now. The car is offered in 5 shades now – Sparkle Cocoa, Telesto Grey, Calypso Red, Orcus White, and Atlas Black. However, the dual-tone paint job can be had with the Calypso Red and Orcus White paint schemes only.
