5 Reasons to Postpone Buying Tata Harrier
1. Harrier EV-Inspired Design
The Harrier EV was showcased by Tata Motors at the Auto Expo. It garnered a lot of eyeballs due to its striking design. The Harrier facelift could borrow certain elements from that to get a fresh appearance. This might include things like sleek LRD DRLs, tweaked front grille, redesigned bumper and headlamp housing, new alloy wheels and modern LED taillamps connected by either a light bar or a chrome slab.

This will be in addition to the already existing 2.0-litre turbo diesel mill that makes 170 PS and 350 Nm of peak power and torque. The new petrol engine might bring down the starting price of the range attracting a wider audience.

Since there might be the introduction of the turbo petrol mill, the prices are most likely to go down a bit compared to the diesel model. That will ensure that the accessibility of the facelift version will attract a wider range of potential buyers who previously might not have been considering it. Diesel mills are becoming more and more expensive due to the technology needed to keep their emissions in check.
