Here’s how the new XT+ variant fits in the existing variant lineup of the Harrier. This price is however only introductory and will be applicable for customers who books the SUV in September and take the delivery within December 31. The prices will go up after October 1. The XT+ variant only additionally gets the panoramic sunroof for which you will have to pay a premium of Rs 59,000 over the XZ variant. The ‘+’ variants in the Harrier line-up indicate the sunroof equipped variants and before this, you’d have to stretch up to XZ+ (Rs 18.90 lakh) variant to get a sunroof.
With this new XT+ variant, a sunroof-equipped Harrier is easier on the pocket by Rs 1.91 lakh. This also closely follows the launch of the Tata Nexon XM(S) and XMA(S) which were just introduced recently to be the most affordable sub-compact SUV with a sunroof. This only indicates that Tata Motors wants to create a niche for themselves by making the sunroof feature – a very loved feature indeed – a lot more accessible to its customers.
The XT+ variant is only a mid-spec variant and it misses out on features such as HID projector headlamps, terrain modes, a 9-speaker JBL sound system, powered driver’s seat, a semi-digital instrument display and auto-dimming IRVM. It however comes decently equipped with features such as a smaller 7-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an 8-speaker sound system, drive modes, halogen projector headlamps with LED DRLs, keyless entry with push button start, climate control, cruise control, and even auto headlamps and wipers. Safety is taken care of by dual airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, hill hold control and traction control.
Under the hood, the 170hp 2.0L diesel engine only comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox on this variant. If the 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox was also thrown into the mix, it would have been a great package and perhaps the most value for money variant. The Tata Harrier continues to rival the likes of the MG Hector, Hyundai Creta, and Kia Seltos and barring the Seltos, both the Hector and the Creta have variants equipped with panoramic sunroofs at a more affordable price point.
