The most noticeable update to the Harrier is its front fascia, featuring a new grille and a split headlight design, accompanied by a full-width LED light bar above the grille. The front bumper is divided into two sections, separated by a gloss black band.
In profile, the Harrier facelift retains its overall appearance, but it flaunts new designs for the 18- and 19-inch alloy wheels, with the latter exclusively available for the Dark edition variants. At the rear, the Harrier receives a revised bumper, and the tail-lamp housing now incorporates new LED lighting elements, giving it a sleeker look. The overall design is reminiscent of the Harrier EV showcased at Auto Expo 2023.
Interior and Features:
Tata has made significant changes to the Harrier’s interior. The dashboard no longer features faux wood trim and instead incorporates a combination of materials, including a textured top panel, gloss black surfaces, and leatherette padding with contrast stitching. These elements are complemented by a slim strip of LED ambient light.
The Harrier facelift offers two infotainment touchscreen options, with sizes of 10.25 inches and 12.3 inches, depending on the trim. It also includes a touch-based panel for the HVAC controls in the center console, akin to the one seen in the new Nexon and Nexon.ev.
Other features in the Harrier facelift encompass a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, a new four-spoke steering wheel featuring a backlit Tata Motors logo, a new drive selector for automatic variants, a rotary knob for the drive selector equipped with a digital display, dual-zone climate control, a 10-speaker JBL-tuned sound system, rear window shades, a 360-degree camera, a panoramic sunroof, and more.
Safety features are comprehensive, including up to 7 airbags (with 6 airbags standard across the range), ADAS, hill-hold control, three-point seat belts with reminders for all passengers, and more.
Powertrain and Variants:
The Harrier facelift retains its mechanical configuration with a 170hp, 350Nm, 2.0-litre diesel engine mated to a 6-speed manual or automatic gearbox. The automatic gearbox is available from the Adventure+ variant onwards. The vehicle offers three terrain response modes (Normal, Rough, and Wet) and three driving modes (Eco, City, and Sports). Tata Motors has also retuned the suspension setup to better suit Indian road conditions.
The Harrier is now available in four core trims: Smart, Pure, Adventure, and Fearless, with additional packages featuring a ‘+’ or ‘A’ suffix.
Colors and Rivals:
The Harrier facelift is offered in six colors: Seaweed Green, Ash Grey, Lunar White, Pebble Grey, Sunlit Yellow, and Coral Red. The Oberon Black color option is exclusive to the Dark edition variants. Each trim has its unique exterior and interior color options.
The Tata Harrier facelift competes with the 5-seat Mahindra XUV700, diesel variants of the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos, as well as the MG Hector and Jeep Compass. The updated model aims to strengthen its position in the competitive SUV segment.
