Tata Indica Tests Build Quality of Harrier
The video has been uploaded by Nikhil Rana who keeps coming up with such instances to raise awareness regarding the importance of safety ratings and features among Indian car buyers. This incident has been reported from somewhere in Pune where the Indica and Harrier are involved in a head-on collision. The visuals show the damage each of the cars faced. While the Indica seems quite damaged by the impact at the front bumper and bonnet, the Harrier carries a minor scratch on the bumper. This reflects how far Tata has come in terms of the build quality of its products. That is also the reason why people are buying Tata products in such large numbers.
Tata Harrier comes with a 2.0-litre diesel engine that belts out 170 PS and 350 Nm of peak power and torque respectively. The transmission duties are carried out by either a 6-speed manual or an automatic gearbox. The prices of the Harrier range between Rs 14.49 lakh and Rs 21.34 lakh, ex-showroom. There is no option of a 4×4 drive system yet. But the architecture on which the Harrier is built supports the incorporation of a 4×4 drive system at a later stage if required.
