Tata Motors has revealed that at the time of its launch, the Harrier will go on sale only with a diesel engine under its hood. Yes, there will be no petrol engine on offer, at-least for now.
The diesel engine of the Tata Harrier is going to be the same 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder unit which does its duty on the Jeep Compass. However, the power output has been reduced from 170 BHP to 140 BHP. That said, the torque figures remains the same at 350 Nm.
The reduction in power is also done since the Tata Harrier does not offer 4-wheel drive option. The same was done due to platform restrictions. And to put your queries to rest, Tata Motors does not intend to launch the Harrier with a 4-wheel drive train option in the near future.
