Tata Motors will soon launch the Tata Harrier Automatic version that will come with a sunroof along with the features available on the current model

Tata Harrier was among the most anticipated cars of 2019. Launched earlier this year, Tata Harrier has soon captured decent sales and become one of the hottest cars in the mid-size SUVa segment. Tata Harrier can stand out partially thanks to its value-for-money pack as well as a good-looking exterior. However, as the segment is welcoming newer and more capable models, Tata Harrier is in the urgent need to upgrade its offerings. At the moment, Tata Motors is preparing to introduce the automatic version which is missing on the current Harrier.

Tata Harrier automatic with new sunroof is spotted recently

As IndiaAuto reported earlier, along with the addition of automatic option, Tata will also give the Tata Harrier a sunroof. Before new updates are officially introduced, the automatic version with sunroof was spotted undergoing test. There are virtually no change regarding the styling of the Harrier. The only change is, obviously, the new sunroof. Most of the cars of its segment have already featured sunroof. The lack of sunroof has more or less downplayed Tata Harrier’s true potential.

At launch, Tata Harrier was introduced with only one powertrain, a 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel engine with 6-speed manual transmission. This powertrain could put out the maximum power of 140 PS and peak torque of 350 Nm. This time, Tata Harrier will get not only new automatic transmission but also BSVI updates on the engine. Updates on the powertrain are expected to bring out a higher power figure, around 170 PS. The revised engine is expected to be used on the upcoming seven-seater version of the Tata Harrier too.

Tata Harrier has been received various updates recently

Previously, Tata Harrier was given updates on the steering wheel and clutch for better responsiveness, as well as a new software on the infotainment system. Tata also attempts to refine the sound insulation on the Harrier.

The major reason for Tata to constantly update its pack is the growing competition in the mid-size SUV segment. MG Hector recently arrived in full force, exposing a direct threat to the Tata Harrier. Moreover, in the upcoming month, another promising candidate from Kia Motor named Kia Seltos will also enter the game, even increasing Tata’s worry. Hopefully, with the current updates, the Tata Harrier could bounce back to its peak.
