The much-awaited Tata Harrier SUV was first seen testing at the Kari Motor Speedway near Coimbatore in August. More recently it was spotted undergoing advanced double lane change and fish hook handling tests at the NATRAX test track near Indore, according to a video released by Tata Motors. The company is focussed on developing it as the best handling SUV in its segment.

The Harrier, as evident in the video, passes both, the double lane change and fish hook test, on the track, proving its dynamic driving performance on a regular pragmatic basis and its ability to tackle sticky situations in the real conditions. The NATRAX test track is Asia’s largest testing facility and specialises in testing vehicle dynamics.

Tata Harrier SUV will gain from the driving dynamics found in Land Rovers as it will get a similar floorpan, steering gear and an all-independent suspension based on the Land Rover-derived platform known as Omega by Tata. It will also be the first SUV model to be developed under Tata’s latest Impact Design 2.0 design language.

The Harrier will be powered by a Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre turbo-diesel motor which will churn 140hp and mated to a 6-speed manual or a Hyundai-sourced 6-speed automatic gearbox. All-wheel drive with driving modes will be also available.

It will face competition from the Hyundai Tucson and Jeep Compass in the Indian market. The price speculated for the Harrier is somewhere between Rs 16 lakh and Rs 21 lakh, when it goes on sale in 2019.

Also, Tata Motors has been refurbishing its model fleet with the launch of the Hexa XM+, Tiago NRG and Tigor XZ+. Tata will also bring the performance-focussed Tiago and Tigor JTP on October 26.
