Tata Buzzard is the production version of the Harrier’s seven-seater iteration, the H7X. It is confirmed to launch in India during the 2019-20 fiscal year.
On the occasion of its 21st outing at the Geneva Motor Show, Tata Motors has revealed the much talked about production iteration of the Harrier’s seven-seater derivative. Codenamed as the H7X, this SUV is likely to be named as the Buzzard when it makes its debut in the Indian market. It is based on the same Omega architecture as that of the Harrier but gets extra 63 mm of length in order to accommodate the extra row of seating.
In terms of design, the Tata Buzzard is quite identical to the Harrier, particularly from the front fascia. It too gets the sharp LED daytime running lights mounted on top of the main projector headlamp unit. Things start to change once you take a look at this seven-seater from the side. Instead of the Harrier’s slopping roof-line, the Buzzard comes with a traditional layout in order to accommodate the headroom for the third-row occupants.
The rear fascia once again reminds you of the Harrier. That said, the design of the boot-lid, tail-lamps and the bumper are unique to the Buzzard.
Inside, the cabin layout of the Tata Buzzard is identical to that of the Harrier. It comes with a dual-tone colour scheme of brown and beige. The Tata Buzzard is likely to get a fiat sourced 2.0-litre diesel engine. However, unlike the Harrier, in here it will be launched in the 170 BHP and 350 Nm guise. Transmission options will include a 6-speed manual transmission and a 6-speed torque converter unit sourced from Hyundai.
Tata Motors has confirmed that they are going to launch the Buzzard in the Indian market within the fiscal year of 2019-20. In terms of pricing, this seven-seater SUV is going to sit above the Harrier and hence it is expected to be priced in-between the range of INR 18 lakh to 22 Lakh (ex-showroom).
