Here’s a new video in which a BS4 Tata Harrier can be seen crossing a rocky stream easily. It may be noted here that the mid-size SUV received its first update early this year
Tata Harrier is among the most robust looking SUVs in its segment. It locks horns with the likes of MG Hector and Jeep Compass. The mid-size SUV is based on the H5X concept, which was showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo and was introduced in the Indian market in early 2019. The car quickly became popular among the buyers because of its looks, price and features. Tata Harrier looks like a rugged off-roader but is still offered in 2WD configuration. Here, however, we have a video in which a BS4 Tata Harrier easily crosses a rocky stream without any hassle. This video has been uploaded by a YouTube channel named Y Channel.
The video simply shows the pre-facelift Tata Harrier nearing a rocky water stream and effortlessly crosses it without too much problem. There were also some big rocks in the stream, but the SUV managed to cross it without hitting the undercarriage. The automaker offers the Harrier with an ample amount of ground clearance, which makes easy for the SUV to counter uneven surfaces.
While going via the stream, the wheels did not lose the traction and managed to go on a straight line. One of the smart features offered with Tata Harrier is a Terrain Management System. It consists of Normal, Wet and Rough road modes which fiddle with traction and throttle response. Using these modes really helps 2WD SUV to perform well under in tricky situations. A few months back, the mid-size SUV got updated as per BS6 emission norms.
The new 2020 model features revised ORVM, new colour shade options and alloy wheels. Inside, the 2020 Harrier retains the old layout but gets additional features like a panoramic sunroof, electrically adjustable seats, auto-dimming IRVM and so on. Mechanically, it derives power from a 2.0-litre turbo petrol mill, which puts out 170 PS of power and 350 Nm of peak torque. The new model is 30 PS more powerful than that of the BS4 version. Transmission duties are done by a 6-speed MT or 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
