Tata Harrier is set to be launched in India in January next year and the SUV has already garnered pretty good attention after the concept model was displayed at the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo. The latest news about the SUV is that it will borrow the 6-speed automatic transmission from Hyundai. Upon launch, the SUV will be positioned above the Hexa and throw competition to a lot of cars ranging between Jeep Compass to Toyota Fortuner.

Initially, it was thought that the Tata Harrier will get the Fiat-sourced 9-speed automatic transmission, but that’s not going to happen. Instead of the 9-speed AT, Tata has decided to use the Hyundai sourced 6-speed automatic unit, as it will help Tata Motors to keep the pricing lower. The gearbox will be coupled with a 2.0-litre diesel engine sourced from FCA.

No wonder, the decision of using a Hyundai 6-speed automatic transmission has been taken to keep the pricing of the car competitive, as strategy to throw tough challenge to the rivals. The SUV will be available in both five-seater and seven-seater versions, with the power output for the models being 138 bhp and 168 bhp. The Tata All Wheel Drive technology will be standard in both the models.
