The video highlights the design of the monocoque architecture which offers optimised torsional and bending stiffness. The Harrier will offer superior handling in both urban and off-road driving conditions. So, we can safely assume that the Harrier will be capable of handling off-road patches.

The OMEGARC also features auxiliary isolation panels which keep the NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harshness) levels under control. In terms of safety, the platform uses high strength steel and also gets efficiently designed crumple zones. The platform is built on advanced automated manufacturing line which ensures robust quality and reliability.

The Harrier will be offered in both five-seater and seven-seater configurations. The interior will be premium with a touchscreen infotainment system and leather seat upholstery.

The Tata Harrier will draw power from a 2-litre diesel engine that is likely to produce 140bhp and 320Nm of torque. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual gearbox and Tata might also introduce an automatic gearbox. The Harrier is unlikely to get an all-wheel-drive system to keep the costs down.
