Tata Motors has launched its much-awaited flagship product – the new Tata Harrier SUV. Priced from Rs. 12.69 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) onwards, the Harrier is available in four trim levels – XE, XM, XT and XZ. At the moment, Tata is offering the Harrier only with a Diesel Manual powertrain setup, though an automatic is expected to be introduced in the near future.
Following are the variant-wise ex-showroom, Delhi prices of the Tata Harrier:
- Tata Harrier XZ – Rs. 12.69 lakh
- Tata Harrier XM – Rs. 13.75 lakh
- Tata Harrier XT – Rs. 14.95 lakh
- Tata Harrier XZ – Rs. 16.25 lakh
The Tata Harrier is a five seat SUV that is based on the H5X concept that was showcased at last year’s Auto Expo. It is based on the company’s new Omega platform, that is derived from a Land Rover chassis. The Harrier thus shares its underpinnings with the Land Rover Discovery Sport. It is a significantly sized vehicle, being 4,598 mm in length, 1,894 mm in width, and 1,706 mm in height. It has a wheelbase of 2,741 mm and a ground clearance of 205 mm.
Since the Harrier is Tata’s flagship product, the company has loaded it with various advanced features. The top-end Harrier XZ variant comes with an 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a part digital instrument cluster with a 7.0-inch digital screen, leather upholstery, rear view camera, a JBL-sourced sound system, climate control, cruise control, and automatic headlamps and wipers.

Safety features available on the Tata Harrier include anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake force distribution (EBD), hill-hold and descent assist, 6 airbags, corner stability control, and rollover mitigation.
Powering the Tata Harrier is a Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, turbo diesel engine that churns out 140 hp and 350 Nm of torque. Transmission duties are handled by a 6-speed manual gearbox. Tata has assured that a petrol engine option and an automatic gearbox will be added to the Harrier’s specification sheet in the distant future.
Deliveries of the Tata Harrier in India have commenced from immediate effect. The SUV is expected to compete against the likes of the Jeep Compass, Hyundai Creta, and Mahindra XUV500.
