With a slew of new models arriving in the mid-size SUV segment, Tata Motors is expected to come up with a mid-life facelift for Tata Harrier
The Tata Harrier is easily among the more successful models from the homegrown carmaker. Based on the stunning H5X concept, the Harrier impressed everyone with its modern looks when it debuted in January 2019. Around a year later, it even received some updates in the form of a more powerful engine, dual-tone paint schemes, and new mag wheels. Even though the SUV continues to look modern, Tata could soon give it a facelift to bring it back into the limelight. This is especially important owing to the advent of fresher competition in the form of the Mahindra Scorpio N. Here’s a new illustration suggesting what the front fascia of the revised model could look like.

At the moment, the Tata Harrier is available only with a diesel engine option. This Fiat-sourced MultiJet II 2.0-litre oil-burner pumps out a maximum of 170 PS of power and 350 Nm of torque. The transmission options on offer include a 6-speed manual and a Hyundai-sourced 6-speed automatic unit. The Tata Harrier facelift, though, could come with a petrol engine option. In all chances, the SUV will receive a 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline burner that would be made available with both manual and automatic transmissions. However, 4WD will continue to remain conspicuous by its absence.
