Tata Harrier is among the most-awaited SUVs in the country and is expected to launch in India by 2019. Tata Motors first showcased the five-seater Harrier SUV at the 2018 Auto Expo in its concept form, the H5X.
However, Tata Motors also confirmed a seven-seater variant of the Harrier for the Indian market at a later stage. The seven-seater Tata Harrier has already been spotted testing in the country on multiple occasions. Now, reports from Autocar India has suggested that the Tata Harrier 7-seater SUV will be unveiled at the 2020 Auto Expo.
The new Tata Harrier seven-seater will be 62mm longer than the five-seater variant, allowing for a third-row of seats. However, the 7-seater SUV will come with the same wheelbase at 2,741mm. The seven-seater Harrier will also carry forward a similar design as seen on its smaller sibling.
The Tata Harrier will introduce the new OMEGARC platform, based on Land Rover's D8 platform which underpins the Land Rover Discovery Sport. The seven-seater variant will continue using the same platform as well.
The Tata Harrier five-seater SUV will be powered by a new 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel engine churning out 140bhp. The 7-seater variant, however, is expected to feature a more powerful version of the same engine. The reworked engine is expected to produce roughly 170bhp and will be compliant with the upcoming BS-VI emission norms.
Transmission options on the seven-seater will be the same six-speed manual and the Hyundai-sourced six-speed automatic transmission.
The seven-seater variant of the Harrier is also expected to carry a different name, to help it differentiate between the two models.
Thoughts On The Tata Harrier 7-Seater (H7X) SUV
The Tata Harrier 7-seater variant has been spied testing multiple times on the Indian streets. Tata Motors had already confirmed a seven-seater Harrier SUV for the Indian market. Once launched, the seven-seater Harrier SUV will be priced at a premium, compared to the upcoming five-seater Harrier SUV.
