Recently, a demo unit of the Tata Harrier crashed into a tree. The two front airbags were deployed to decrease the accident impact.
The recently launched Tata Harrier has recorded considerable success with over 1,400 units sold last month, thanks to its impressive list of features and a competitive price. The demand for the SUV among the Indian auto buyers is increasing all the time. However, to our disappointment, recently, another Tata Harrier has met with an accident. Here is a video which shows the condition of the vehicle after the accident.
As can be seen in the video, there is a momentary plate number in the car rear and a #AboveAll lettering on the side. This means that it is a demo Tata Harrier, which is put on test for potential customers. The vehicle is seen to suffer heavy damage in the front. The specific cause of the accident remains to be discovered, but perhaps it lost control when going at high speed and collided into a tree. Whether any occupants got injured in the crash is also unknown.
The video also displays the airbags which have been deployed to diminish the accident impact. It looks like the top-spec variant of the Tata Harrier which is replete with 6 airbags. However, the number of airbags which are implemented will depend on the situation. In this case, only two front airbags were applied since the accident impact is largely on the front.

Under the hood of the Tata Harrier is a 2.0L KRYOTEC motor which can deliver 140 PS of maximum power and 350 Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed MT gearbox with motor driving modes which can alter the power output of the motor. The flagship Tata SUV is expected to come with a 7-seater version, petrol motor, AT unit and AWD system soon.
