Tata Motors came out with its trump card, when the wraps came off the H5X SUV at the 2018 Auto Expo. No one ever expected the design to be so vibrant, in fact, a design that no one ever thought to be so sumptuous unlike previous Tata’s. The production version will be much similar like the concept form, where Tata has christened it as ‘Harrier’.

Initially, the Harrier will be introduced by January 2019 in a five-seater configuration, pouncing with the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Jeep Compass and Renault Captur. While, in the later stages, a seven-seater will make its way in the market to take the game against Mahindra XUV500 SUV with a different moniker. Here are some important things that you should know about the upcoming stunner, Tata Harrier.

Platform

The Harrier will be based on Tata Motors’ Omega platform, which is a derivative of Jaguar Land Rover’s L550 platform that also underpins the Discovery Sport SUV. This clearly means that it will share some parts from same as on the Discovery Sport such as floor pan, all-independent suspension and steering gear, while the steel parts will replace aluminium, to keep the cost in check. The car is also expected to share same Discovery Sport 2741mm Wheelbase.

Fiat sourced engine

The Harrier will draw its power from a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, turbo-diesel engine, which Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' (FCA) sourced. It is the same engine that also serves the Jeep Compass. Though, the 171bhp state of tune is expected to power the seven-seater variant, whereas the five-seater is expected to come with a 138bhp tuned engine. Transmission duty is expected to be carried with a 6-speed manual transmission and an automatic transmission for the  higher variants. The homegrown carmaker has developed a new four-wheel-drive system for the model, which is also expected to offer the engine with multiple drive modes.

Exterior design

Tata designers say that the final product will look very similar to the concept and spy pics and sketches of the final production version concur. Being the first model to sport Tata’s latest Impact Design 2.0 design language, the Harrier’s styling will be bold and aggressive with prominent wheel arches and will be accentuated with creases. As we mentioned, the interesting bit here is that the Tata’s designers has confirmed that the production version will be very much similar to the concept displayed with sleek headlamps and high-set DRLs.

Cabin and features

In terms of features, the Harrier SUV will come equipped with a touchscreen infotainment system, steering-mounted buttons, memory function for the front seats, front parking sensors and a reversing camera, to name a few. While, the Tata has also taken care of the practicality with its spacious interior and storage bins. In the recent spy shots, the five-seat Harrier clearly speaks of space and front and rear centre armrests that the car will come with. Nonetheless, the production model will be feature-rich in the rage topping variant.
