2020 Tata Harrier is more powerful and boasts of some extra features over the older car. However, the car has now started reaching the dealerships and the deliveries are also expected to start soon this month.
Tata Motors had a great start to the year 2020 with 4 new launches in the month of January. The manufacturer also launched the 2020 Tata Harrier in the second month of this year at the Auto Expo 2020 at a starting price of Rs 13.69 lakh. The MY2020 Harrier has now started reaching the dealerships as well, and thus we can expect the deliveries to commence soon. We came across a video uploaded on YouTube, where a test drive unit of the refreshed Harrier can be seen right outside a Tata dealership. The car in the video wears the new red-black dual-tone paint scheme, which Tata Motors has introduced with the updated Harrier.
The 2020 Tata Harrier was showcased to the masses for the first time at the recently held Auto Expo. The manufacturer has updated the car with a slew of changes such as a full-size panoramic sunroof, 6-speed automatic gearbox, updated ORVMs, new design for the 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, and a powerful engine. According to Tata Motors, the panoramic sunroof offered in the Harrier is one of the largest seen in this segment. The wing mirrors are updated in order to reduce the blindspot that was offered with the older car, which a lot of customers complained.
Tata Harrier now gets a new Calypso Red dual-tone paint scheme.
Talking of the updates, the FCA-sourced 2.0L 4-cylinder, turbocharged diesel now produces 170 PS of peak power. In comparison to the older unit, the Harrier now produces 30 PS more power, which is now in line with the MG Hector and Jeep Compass. The new automatic transmission is a 6-speed torque converter unit that is sourced from the Korean giant ‘Hyundai’.
With the introduction of new automatic gearbox and features, Tata Motors is also offering a few more variants with the Harrier. It will now be offered in a total of 8 variants in comparison to the 4 offered earlier. The option of AT gearbox will be offered with the XMA, XTA, XZA, and XZA+ variants. Tata Motors is also offering a new dual-tone Calypso Red and a single-tone Sparkle Cocoa, while the Thermisto Gold and Calisto Copper are now discontinued. Also, the company will continue to sell the Dark Edition of the Harrier, which comes painted in Atlas Black.
