  • Harrier’s 7-seat version codenamed ‘Buzzard’. 

  • Expected to launch in early 2020.

  • It will be longer and taller to accommodate the third row of seats.

  • Might offer more powerful engines, AWD as options.

The Tata Harrier’s 7-seat variant, code-named ‘Buzzard’, has been spotted testing. It is expected to be launched in early 2020 in the Indian market. 

The Harrier has seen reasonable success in its segment, thanks to its combination of good looks, excellent genes, and long features list coupled with great value. It makes sense for it to move up a half segment and offer a three-row, seven-seat version of the Harrier – and that’s what Tata has in the Buzzard. That won’t be the name of the SUV when it gets launched in the Indian market. The Buzzard is longer by 63mm and taller by 80mm, to help accommodate that third row. It will probably run a 2.0-liter four-pot diesel motor just like the Harrier, but unlike the Harrier, it will have a higher output, at 170bhp and 350Nm. Tata has named this engine the Kryotec motor. This also brings up the possibility of AWD and an automatic gearbox, which the Buzzard will have to provide when it moves up that half-segment in price. The automatic gearbox will most likely be a six-speed unit sourced from Hyundai

This also brings up interesting possibilities for the Harrier itself – the addition of that automatic gearbox to the Harrier’s variant list will make a lot of sense for Tata once the Buzzard launches. With the long list of features that the Harrier already has, including ABS, EBD, brake assist, traction control, ESP, hill hold assist, six airbags, climate control, leather upholstery, and a touchscreen infotainment display, the Buzzard won’t have to add much, if anything at all, to fit into the segment. 

The 7-seat Harrier, known as Buzzard, will compete with SUVs like the MG Hector, Honda CR-V and Mahindra XUV500 in the Indian market once it is launched.
