Ahead of its launch in the Indian market, fresh spy images of the seven-seater Harrier has been leaked online. The spy pics from Autocar India, showcase a completely camouflaged seven-seater SUV testing on the Indian roads.
The seven-seater SUV, based on the Harrier will use the same OMEGA architecture (modified Land Rover D8 platform). It will also use Tata Motors' latest 'Impact 2.0 design language.The seven-seater SUV codenamed 'H7X' will be positioned above the five-seater Harrier in the product lineup.
Tata confirmed the launch of the seven-seater variant for the Indian market, through a teaser shared at the 2018 Auto Expo. Since then, the car has been spotted testing in India on multiple occasions. The seven-seater H7X SUV is said to be 62mm longer than the Harrier SUV and will also feature a larger rear-quarter glass.
As seen from the spy pics, the seven-seater SUV seems to sit a bit lower to the ground while also sporting wider tyres and a new set of alloy wheels. The H7X might also carry forward design cues from the Harrier SUV, including a prominent humanity line, patterned fog lamps, LED DRLs, sporty bumper, smoked tail lamps and an electric sunroof.
Inside as well, the seven-seater SUV will come feature-packed. Some of the features expected on the H7X SUV: leather seats and dashboard, large touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink.
Safety features on the Tata seven-seater H7X include dual airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking camera/sensors, brake assist, traction control, ESP and a terrain management system similar to that on the Land Rover.
In terms of mechanicals, the seven-seater H7X SUV will carry forward the same 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel engine. However, the H7X will get a higher state-of-tune. The engine on the seven-seater SUV will produce 170bhp and 350Nm of peak torque; a 30bhp increase over the five-seater Harrier — read our detailed Tata Harrier review here.
The engine will continue to be mated to the same six-speed manual gearbox. Although an AMT transmission which is already in the works might also make its debut on the production-spec H7X.
