Tata Harrier Automatic Spied Testing — India-Launch Expected Soon

Tata Motors launched their five-seater flagship SUV, the Harrier in the market recently. The Tata Harrier was introduced with just a manual gearbox, however, the carmaker has confirmed the launch of an automatic variant soon. Now, spy pics have leaked online showcasing the Tata Harrier automatic being tested on Indian roads.

The spy pics of the Tata Harrier automatic reveals the optional AMT gearbox for the first time. The automatic transmission on the Tata Harrier has been sourced from Hyundai and comes in the form of a six-speed torque convertor unit.

The Tata Harrier was launched in India with a starting price of Rs 12.69 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi). The Harrier is part of Tata's new Omega platform, based on the Land Rover D8 architecture. It is also the first model in the company's lineup to feature the new 'Impact 2.0' design language.

This design language will continue on Tata's next launch, slated to be the premium 45X hatchback. The production-spec version of the Tata 45X hatchback will be showcased at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, along with four other models.

The Harrier was one of the most-awaited models to launch from Tata Motors. The five-seater SUV comes powered by a Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel engine. It produces 140bhp and 320Nm of peak torque. The current model is mated to a standard six-speed manual gearbox, driving the front wheels — read our detailed review here.

Features on the Tata Harrier include LED headlamps, LED DRLs, 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, steering-mounted audio controls, multiple airbags, rear parking camera and sensors, ABS with EBD and a number of others. The Harrier also offers a number of accessories — here is the entire list of accessories available for the Tata Harrier.

Apart from the five-seater variant, Tata Motors is also working on introducing a larger seven-seater version of the SUV. The seven-seater Harrier SUV will use the same 2.0-litre diesel engine, however, will be tuned to produce a higher power output of 170bhp.
