In the latest video and image release, Tata Motors has unveiled more details and a couple of functions of the SUV platform as a step to prepare for the official launch which will take place in early 2019.

In particular, as the optimised torsional and bending stiffness, Harrier's body movements will be under control against the broken road conditions.

As for some of the aluminium bits, Tata Motors decided to replace them with more affordable steel parts to make sure the costs are in check.

In terms of the cabin, Tata Motors explained that a quiet cabin has resulted from the use of auxiliary isolation panels. Aiming to offer a quiet as well as refined in-cabin experience, Tata Harrier is designed to help keep the NVH which are noise, vibrations, and harshness levels, in check. The cabin will also be featured with a floating display for the infotainments system and a set of buttons placed below in an angular position. 

As for safety, the platform is claimed to offer an efficiently designed crumple zone. Meanwhile, the use of high strength steel allows making the SUV both of rigid and strong at the same time. The Tata Harrier SUV will be available in two formats which are
