Tata Harrier Reaches 1 Lakh Sales Milestone
Launched in 2019, Tata Harrier has achieved a new landmark by crossing 1 lakh unit sales. This accomplishment is particularly remarkable considering the car’s price of over Rs 25 lakh (on-road).
The high popularity of the Harrier is due to its attractive design and the premium SUV experience it provides at a relatively affordable price point compared to its rivals in the market.
On this significant sales milestone, let’s explore some fascinating facts about the Tata Harrier that you should know: –
- The Tata Harrier draws its name from the strong and agile harrier bird.
- Tata has underpinned the Harrier SUV on the OMEGA (Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced) platform, which is derived from the well-known Land Rover D8 platform. Before the introduction of the OMEGA architecture, Tata SUVs primarily followed a body-on-frame construction approach, where the body and vehicle frame were separate entities.
- Tata has borrowed its 170PS 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel engine from Fiat, while the 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission has been sourced from Hyundai Motors.
- The Harrier and its three-row version, the Safari, are the first Tata SUVs to get an ADAS safety suite.
Currently, Tata offers the Harrier in six broad variants: XE, XM, XMS, XT+, XZ, and XZ+, along with ‘Dark’ and the new ‘Red Dark’ editions. The brand retails the SUV between Rs 15 – 24.07 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), placing it against the Mahindra XUV700, MG Hector, Jeep Compass and some diesel-powered variants of Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos.
