- Tata Harrier is available with benefits worth Rs 1.75 Lakhs.
- These benefits enable Harrier's top-end variant price to fall under Rs 20 Lakhs.
- Lack of an auto gearbox has hurt Harrier's sales a bit.
Tata Motors is offering huge discounts and benefits on the Harrier SUV in the country. These benefits are being offered in a bid to clear the existing stocks of CY 19. Though, the company had also introduced discounts and offers with the Harrier earlier as well due to the market slowdown and festive season. But, this time around, the benefits are heavier as compared to the ones made available by the company earlier.
It is being learned that various variants of Tata Harrier can be availed at discounts and benefits of up to Rs 1.75 Lakhs. By the virtue of these hefty discounts, the range-topping variant of the SUV now has the on-road price of around Rs 19 Lakhs, as compared to Rs 20.47 Lakhs.
Tata Harrier had received a decent reception from buyers upon its launch in the country and then, the introduction of Dark Edition with all-black upholstery further bolstered the sales of the SUV. However, it has faced stiff competition from MG Hector and Kia Seltos while the lack of an auto gearbox is also hurting the SUV.
Currently, Tata Harrier is powered by a BS 4 compliant Fiat-sourced 2.0L diesel engine which is linked to a 6-speed manual transmission. An even more powerful motor is in works with BS 6 emission norms and a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox, which could be launched anytime soon before March 31, 2020.
Tata Motors has also started teasing the 7-seater version of Harrier, which is christened as 'Gravitas'. It could be launched by April 2020 in the Indian market alongside the standard Harrier with BS 6 engine and auto gearbox.
