So, if the plans of getting on home were on your mind, it is the time to do so, as Tata Motors is offering a discount of Rs. 30,000 on the Harrier. However, this discount is not a direct cash benefit. But, an exchange bonus over the evaluated price of the old car that would be exchanged for a new Harrier.
Talking of the changes that Harrier gets with the update, there are many. Starting with the exterior first, it gets 2 new paint scheme options, namely Sparkle Cocoa and Calypso Red. A new design for the alloy-wheels has also been introduced. The ORVMs are now smaller in size to reduce the blind spot created by them. On the inside, it now gets electrically adjustable driver seat, auto-dimming IRVM, and a massive panoramic sunroof.
