Tata Harrier has been due for a facelift, especially after the massive success of the Mahindra XUV700.
This video highlights some things or features that we expect to see on the Tata Harrier facelift. In competition with the 5-seat version of the highly popular Mahindra Scorpio N and XUV700, Harrier could shoot back to limelight in an updated avatar. Recognising this, Tata even brought out a few special edition versions of the SUV in the form of Dark and Kaziranga editions. While these did bring some freshness to the mid-size SUV fresh, it is time for a more comprehensive and complete update for the entire range of Harrier. The video shares 5 things that are confirmed and 2 things that are highly likely to come with the updated Harrier in the first-half of 2023.

7 Upgrades EXPECTED to Arrive on Tata Harrier Facelift
- New Petrol Engine: Looking at the trend of people buying petrol cars for the initial lower prices and almost similar prices of diesel and petrol, Tata Motors is planning to launch a 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine, as per the video. The power and torque outputs are not available yet. But to bring the starting prices down, this could be a great move.
- Updated Infotainment System: Many people complain about the relatively small and sluggish infotainment display of the Harrier. With its competitors offering large and crisp touchscreen units, the facelifted Harrier will come with a new infotainment unit with all the modern connectivity and convenience features.

- Ventilated Seats & Air Purifier: While the function of ventilated seats is available with the select special edition versions of the Harrier, this time around, it will be a standard feature across the range (depending on the variant). It is a great feature to beat the summer heat. Similarly, the air purifier is becoming a necessity, especially if you live in big cities with polluted air.
- Exterior Design: The point of a facelift is minor tweaks to the appearance of the vehicle to distinguish it from its predecessor. To accomplish this, a few changes to the design are guaranteed although the looks of the Harrier are already well appreciated by almost everyone.

- Lower Price: Because of the introduction of the petrol engine, the initial prices of the Harrier will decrease making it an attractive proposition for a while bunch of people who might initially intend to buy something like a Creta or a Seltos.
- ADAS Features: This is an aspect which is not confirmed yet. But looking at other mid-size SUVs, ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) features are becoming more and more prevalent in the mid-size SUV segment after the MG Astor. The facelifted versions of the Creta and Seltos are also rumoured to come with ADAS features. Hence, it makes sense for Tata to offer them on the facelifted Harrier too.
- 360-Degree Camera: Lastly, a big SUV like Harrier could really benefit from a 360-degree camera. This would enhance the convenience while parking in tight spots or even out on a highway. But again, this is not confirmed.
