Indian Automotive giant Tata Motors launched its flagship 5-seater Harrier SUV in January. At the time of its launch, the all-new Tata Harrier was offered with five different colour options. Now a new post on a team-bhp forum has revealed that the Harrier will be offered in a sixth colour option — Atlas Black.
According to the forum post, Tata Motors will offer the stealthy new Atlas Black colour option with every variant of the Harrier except for the base XE. This is not surprising as of the five colour options revealed at the Harrier's launch — Calisto Copper, Ariel Silver, Orcus White, Telesto Grey, and Thermisto Gold - the base XE model was only offered with the plain jane Orcus White paint scheme. In fact, the launch colour option — Calisto Copper — is only offered with the top two variants of the Harrier, ie; XT and XZ.
The new Atlas Black colour option should prove to be quite appealing to those looking for a more discreet colour option when opting for the Harrier. This is due to the fact, that the other colour options for the Harrier, except for maybe the base White and the Grey are not what you would call subtle. The Black colour option would also appeal to those would prefer to slightly mute down the various curves and creases of the Harrier's design as depending on the finish, it could very well do that.
While the new colour option is definitely a reason to cheer, the Tata Harrier is currently still lacking in a few departments among which is the engine. Tata currently only offers the Harrier with a Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre diesel engine.
However, Tata is currently working on a brand new direct injected 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine that could be as powerful as the 138bhp diesel powerplant. However, the new engine is not expected to arrive until 2020, when BS-VI emission norms kick in. Tata Motors is also said to be working on a six-speed dual-clutch transmission option, which is also expected to arrive along with the new petrol engine.
However, Tata Motors is not resting on the Harrier's success as it recently revealed 5 new vehicles at the Geneva Motor Show. The five cars included the new H2X concept, the Altroz and Altroz EV hatchbacks, along with the Buzzard (7-seater Harrier) and the Buzzard Sport.
