Tata Motors has introduced the Harrier SUV in January 2018. The launch resulted in one of the most successful models of the company in the range. The release of the mid-size SUV took over the models which were the previous popular in the range. Its modern design, attractive price, high-performance diesel engine, off-roading capabilities, and the luxurious cabin attracted a huge number of customers.
The sales have also surpassed the popularity of bestselling Jeep Compass, Creta and the XUV500. The automotive maker sold about 422 units soon after the launch. In the month of February 2019, they delivered a total of 1,449 unit that increased to 2,492 units in March 2019. Tata Motors has received more 10,000 units of the Harrier which is yet to be delivered. Due to huge demand, the company has increased the waiting period by 4 months.
As you all know, Tata Harrier is not available with a sunroof, but this has never affected the overall sales. Although, few dealers are now selling the Harrier with a different accessory like a sunroof. Ankit Banka, Harrier owner has recently placed a sunroof on the SUV and it looks worth it. The total price of the Tata Harrier with sunroof is approximately Rs 20k purchased through an authorized Tata showroom.
Tata Harrier has been also modified with a software update after some owners complained of issues in the touchscreen infotainment system. The SUV comes integrated with an 8.8-inch touchscreen display. As per the complains, the screen hangs while driving and needs a quick restart. Some purchasers have also faced that the touchscreen isn’t working at all. Hence, the update is just to fix the touchscreen problems.
The updated touchscreen infotainment system now also supports Apple CarPlay along with the existing Android Auto. The Harrier owners can get the software updated at the authorized Tata dealerships without any cost. This is not the first time when we have noticed a new version of Harrier. Previously, we have noticed the images of dual tone variant of the SUV, delivered from the showroom.
Tata Harrier runs on a Fiat-based 2.0-liter Multijet diesel engine which makes 138 bhp of power at 3750rpm and 350Nm of torque at 1750-2500rpm. The engine is combined with a 6-speed manual transmission. Although, as per the latest report, the company will soon introduce an all-new Tata Harrier Automatic variant as well as AWD-equipped version which will be especially for riding off-road.
