The Tata Harrier is powered by a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine. This unit is capable of churning out 140 BHP of power along with 350 Nm of peak torque. This engine is paired to a 6-speed manual transmission as standard. At the moment, the Harrier is not available with an automatic transmission option. Neither does it comes with a 4×4 derivative. However, it does pack in Land Rover inspired terrain response system for the traction control system.
It is confirmed that the Harrier is soon going to get an automatic gearbox in its line-up. The aforementioned gearbox is a 6-speed unit which will be sourced from Hyundai. This two-pedal technology will make its debut with the seven-seater derivative of this vehicle set to launch in India within the 2019-20 fiscal. Also, the one with the extra row of seats is going to come with a 4×4 drivetrain as well.
