As we hold our breaths for the launch of the all-new Tata Harrier, the homegrown automaker continues to tease us with details of its various features and creature comforts on board.
The Harrier, just as the Nexon was, a highly anticipated from Tata Motors.
We first saw the concept iteration of this SUV at the 2018 Auto Expo, which we all liked quite a lot.
With the recent reveal of its exteriors, it became apparent that Tata Motors has stuck to their promise of keeping its exteriors profile as radical as was its concept iteration which was the H5X.
We are soon to bring you a detailed test drive report of this SUV from Tata Motors. Ahead of this, here is our detailed report on all that you need to know about this upcoming rival for the Mahindra XUV5OO and the Jeep Compass.
