Tata Harrier is reportedly going to start off at 13.5 Lakhs and go up to Rs 18 Lakhs (ex-showroom prices).

The prices are also similar to that of Hyundai Creta, which ends up at 15.07 Lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi).
Tata Harrier gets a 2.0 Litre Kyrotec diesel engine that cranks out 145 HP and 350 Nm of torque. The engine is basically a rebadged version of the 2.0 Litre Multijet diesel engine. This engine gets a variable geometry turbocharger, which helps in decreasing the turbo lag while sudden acceleration. The engine will be BS-VI compliant.
For transmission, it will get a 6-speed manual gearbox along with an optional 6-speed automatic unit.
The diesel engine comes with multi-drive modes and as possible AWD. The top end variants might get the drivetrain system. The SUV will definitely get Tata’s driving modes – ECO, CITY, and SPORT.
Tata recently uploaded videos of Harrier’s water wading capability and off-roading capability. The Harrier uses the OMEGA ARC Platform. This newly designed platform is a localized and cheaper version of Land Rover’s JLR D8 Platform.
Various reports also suggest that the Harrier might get a petrol engine later. There is no confirmation as of now, but there are chances as Jeep Compass and XUV 500 also come with a petrol engine. Also, rumours of a hybrid petrol version by 2021, in order to keep up with the growing competition are out.
There are chances that it might also get a 7-seater version of the Harrier. If the 7-seater Harrier comes into play, it will go against the likes of Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour, Honda CR-V and the upcoming Mahindra XUV 700. The prices of the 7-seater Harrier might increase by 2 Lakhs or so from the 5-seater Harrier.
Safety features of the Harrier will include dual airbags, ABS, ESP, and EBD as standard fitments across all variants. The higher variants might get 6-airbags, Traction Control, Brake Assist, Hill Assist control and Hill descent control as safety features.
