Tata Harrier BS6 launched at Auto Expo 2020. Tata Motors has finally launched the BS6-compliant Harrier in the Indian market at a starting price of Rs 16.25 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi).
The Tata Harrier BS6 comes with a number of subtle updates and added features, the highlight being the addition of an automatic transmission unit. The BS6-compliant 2.0-litre ‘Kryotec' diesel engine now produces a higher power output of 170bhp and 350Nm of torque; this is an increase of 30bhp over the previous model.
The lone diesel engine on the Tata Harrier is now offered with a choice of either a six-speed manual which comes as standard or the optional automatic transmission unit.
This new automatic gearbox comes in the form of a six-speed torque-converter unit, sourced from Hyundai Motors India. The automatic transmission, however, will be available only on the higher-trims such as the XMA, XZA and the XZA+.
In terms of pricing, while the starting price for the base ‘XMA' variant starts at Rs 16.25 lakh, as mentioned before, the XZA trim is priced at Rs 18.80 lakh while the top-spec XZA+ costs Rs 19.99 lakh.
Prices of the Harrier BS6 Dark Edition has also gone up, with the variant now priced between Rs 17.70 lakh and Rs 20.25 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom (Delhi). This translates to a price hike of around Rs 25,000 - Rs 30,000, depending on the variant.
The new range-topping XZA+ variant now comes with a host of new features and equipment as well. This includes a panoramic sunroof; a much-awaited feature missing on the previous Harrier model, 6-way electronically adjustable driver seats, two-tone 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, redesigned ORVMs, auto-dimming IRVM and a host of others.
Apart from the above changes, Tata Motors has also introduced the Harrier BS6 with a new paint scheme, called Calypso Red. The company has also started accepting bookings for the BS6 Harrier SUV for an amount of Rs 30,000.
Thoughts On The Tata Harrier BS6 Launch At The Auto Expo 2020
The Tata Harrier BS6 is now more powerful, feature-loaded and better equipped to take on its rivals in the Indian mid-size SUV segment. This should help the brand compete more aggressively, especially against its upcoming rival, the 2020 Hyundai Creta.
