Tata Harrier - Few Things To Know About The Flagship SUV
Racer Dec 7, 2018
Tata Motors is yet to officially announce the top speed and acceleration times of their new Harrier SUV. However, with the Tata Harrier going against the likes of the Jeep Compass and the Hyundai Creta, we can expect a similar performance from the Harrier as well.
Going by this, the Tata Harrier can be expected to have a top speed close to 180km/h and a 0 - 100km/h time of just under 10 seconds.
Note: The top speed and acceleration mentioned above, are purely indicative. We will get to know the actual figures at a later stage.
Tata Motors has announced the engine specifications of their new Harrier SUV, ahead of its launch. The Tata Harrier will be powered by a new 2.0-litre 'Kryotec' diesel engine. It will be mated to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, sending power to the front wheels.
At the time of launch, the Harrier will miss out on an AMT transmission as well as an all-wheel-drive system. However, Tata Motors is expected to introduce both at a later stage.
The Tata Harrier is expected to offer a decent performance, especially with the new 2.0-litre diesel unit. However, in a country like India with constantly fluctuating fuel prices, mileage plays an important factor in decision making, among potential customers.
Tata Motors comes with a decent fuel tank capacity of 50-litres and is expected to ideally offer fuel efficiency figures close to around 14 - 16km/l.
The Tata Harrier is offered in a five-seater configuration, although a seven-seater variant is expected to launch at a later stage.
The five-seater Harrier comes with a luggage capacity 425 litres. The rear seats can further be folded in a 60:40 split, further extending the boot space to 810-litres.
The Tata Harrier also offers a good ground clearance of 205mm. This is higher than most of its rivals in the SUV segment.
The Tata Harrier comes with overall dimensions larger than most of its competitors in the segment. Its wheelbase, however, is the same as seen on the Land Rover Discovery Sport, on which it is based. Click here to read our review of the Land Rover Discovery Sport.

The Tata Harrier has been one of the most-anticipated SUVs in the Indian market since its concept (H5X) was showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo. Once launched, the Tata Harrier will rival the likes of the Jeep Compass, Mahindra XUV500 and the Hyundai Creta.
The Tata Harrier comes with fairly large tyres. The lower variants of the SUV, come with 16-inch steel wheels while the high-spec trims offer 17-inch alloys. The Tata Harrier uses 235/65 R17 radial tubeless tyres on all four ends. The spare, on the other hand, has a smaller 235/65 R16 profile.
