Tata Motors will offer a 2-year warranty for the sunroof. The Harrier will also receive a dark edition that is expected to launch by September.
The Harrier is the best selling mid-size SUV from Tata Motors and now it gets more bells and whistles with the option of a sunroof. All its competitors like Hyundai Creta, MG Hector, Kia Seltos and Mahindra XUV500 gets this feature onboard.
However, the sunroof for Tata Harrier comes as an accessory and not equipped with the top-end model. Earlier when the SUV was shown at the 2018 Auto Expo, it was showcased with a panoramic sunroof for which it became popular with potential buyers. It was only when the SUV was launched and there was no sunroof onboard.
In their press release, the company said, “Tata Motors is happy to announce the introduction of the electric sunroof on the Harrier through Tata Motors Genuine Accessories (TMGA). The Harrier Electric Sunroof H-300, manufactured by Webasto – a market leader that has developed and produced sunroofs for the automotive industry for more than 60 years, is installed by trained experts from Webasto to ensure seamless quality and comes with a 2-year warranty from the date of installation.
The H-300 sunroof offers a drought-free fresh air experience while creating a pleasant and bright vehicle interior. Additionally, the sunroof comes with a tinted protective Venus glass that deflects the UV radiation and sun rays regardless of the amount of incoming light. This latest introduction from Tata Motors promises to be a much sought after feature among the Harrier customers.”
Customers who will opt for a sunroof will shell out Rs 95,000 plus the installation charges. The exact size of the accessory is not revealed by it sure will not void the warranty of the SUV and is taken care of by Tata Motors.
Talking more about the Harrier, the SUV is powered by a 2.0-litre FCA sourced turbocharged diesel engine which produces 140 bhp and 350 Nm of torque on tap. It comes with 6-speed manual transmission and the option of an automatic gearbox is still in the works. Sources say Tata will use the 6-speed torque converter unit from Hyundai.
Also, to boost up the sales of Harrier, Tata will introduce a dark edition of the SUV. The all-black theme will see no mechanical changes and just feature cosmetic changes. For starters, it will possess the Atlas black colour scheme along with black alloy wheels, Blackstone front and rear skid plates and blacked out door handles. The cabin of the SUV also receives all-black theme along with Benecke-Kaliko Blackstone leather seats and door pads.
