Mostly, the SUV will come only in diesel variant with the Fiat-sourced 2.0 Litre Multijet engine.

The recent spied images suggest that the SUV is ready in an almost-full production model. Also, the spied body and design is not much different from the model displayed at the Expo. Such a premium car will be exciting from Tata. Alongside, a 7-seater variant of the same Tata Harrier is expected to launch some time after the 5-seater variant’s launch.
