Tata Harrier crosses 10,000 sales mark, gets 2 dual-tone colour options

Tata Harrier was launched in India for an introductory price of Rs 12.69 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). However, the company hiked the prices of the premium SUV across all the variants by Rs 30,000 in June 2019.

Tata Motors today announced that it has sold over 10,000 units of Harrier. The Indian automobile giant also launched two dual-tone colour options for the premium SUV and these will be in addition to the already existing five monotone paint schemes.

Launched in India in January 2019, Tata Harrier comes in XE, XM, XT and XZ variants and Calisto Copper, Thermisto Gold, Ariel Silver, Telesto Grey and Orcus White paint schemes. The dual-tone option is available with Calisto Copper and Orcus White colours in the top-spec XZ trim only. The roof will have a contrasting black colour in both the dual-tone options.

Tata Harrier XZ dual tone is Rs 20,000 more expensive than the standard XZ trim. Below are the variant-wise prices (ex-showroom, Delhi) of the premium SUV.

-- Harrier XE - Rs 12.99 lakh
-- Harrier XM - Rs 14.05 lakh
-- Harrier XT - Rs 15.25 lakh
-- Harrier XZ - Rs 16.55 lakh
-- Harrier XZ (Dual Tone) - Rs 16.75 lakh

"Harrier has made waves in the market ever since it was showcased in the Auto Expo 2018 as the H5X concept and subsequently launched in January 2019. Overwhelmed by the response received, we are extremely delighted to offer Harrier in dual-tone colour options. This is in line with our continuous endeavour to excite and wow our customers with cars that deliver stunning design and exhilarating performance. With the launch of the dual-tone colour options, we are confident that Harrier's desirability will rise further to a whole new level," said Sibendra Barman, Vice President, Sales Marketing and Customer Support, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors.

At present, Harrier is available in a diesel option only. It is powered by a Kryotec 2.0-litre turbocharged engine that makes 140 bhp and 350 Nm torque. A 6-speed manual gearbox comes mated to the mill. There is no option for an automatic transmission as well.

The feature-rich Harrier competes against the likes of MG Hector, Mahindra XUV500, Jeep Compass and Hyundai Creta. Another rival might be the upcoming Kia Seltos.
