Here’s a video of a brand-new Tata Harrier which collided with a Mahindra Bolero pickup doing speeds of almost 100 kmph on Solapur-Pune Highway
Tata Harrieris not the most popular car in its segment but definitely manages to enjoy a pretty big fan-following. It rivals with the likes of MG Hector and Jeep Compass, and, practically, even the higher trims of the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. Indian customers really like the way the Harrier looks, the space it offers and its overall build quality. Moreover, we've seen several reports of Tata Harrier’s collision with other vehicles and the mid-size SUV never fails to impress by offering a high crash safety. Here’s a recent video that presents details of a Tata Harrier’s head-on collision with Mahindra Bolero pickup. This video is uploaded by a YouTube channel of Prateek Singh and reports about an accident that happened on Solapur-Pune Highway on 26/08/2020.
The front fascia of the SUV got severely damaged in the accident. The owner of the car says that a Mahindra Bolero pickup came from the opposite direction and hit the Harrier. The speed of the pickup truck was between 80 to 100 kmph. As one can see in the video, the front bumper, grille and bonnet has got badly damaged. Moreover, this head-to-head collision has also damaged the front fascia of the Mahindra Bolero. The owner of Tata Harrier also said that his car got this much damaged due to the bull bars employed on the Bolero pickup. Like Tata Nexon and Altroz, the Harrier has not gone through the Global NCAP crash test, but Tata enthusiasts around the country are pretty confident about its sturdy built quality.
In terms of safety features, the SUV employs six airbags, hill descent control, off-road ABS, ABS with EBD, reverse parking sensors, rollover mitigation, corner stability control and much more. Mechanically, it is powered by a 2.0-litre, four-pot diesel motor, which develops 168bhp of peak power and 350 Nm of twisting force. Transmission duties are done by a 6-speed MT or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. It is offered at a starting price of Rs 13.83 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the entry-level XE trim and goes all the up to Rs 20.30 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the top-spec XZA variant.
