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 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.
