New teasers reveal more of the Tata Harrier SUV's interior
Tata Motors has released another set of teasers for its upcoming Tata Harrier SUV. These reveal snippets of the new SUVs interiors. The silhouette of the dash, the side air-vent, the door handles and the JBL speakers have be shown up to an extent.
The SUV seems to use a number of materials and finishes throughout. The door handle lloks to be finished in soft touch leather while the door lock mechanism in metal.. The panel of the dash seems finished in wood while the lower half of the cabin, around the speakers looks to be done up in plastic. The AC vent looks like a faux-aluminium job.
We know from earlier spy shots that the interior gets a black/brown treatment with silver accents. There is a new steering, new dials and a large coloured screen between them. A rotary drive mode selector is also seen ahead of the gearlever while the climate control functions are controlled through a slim panel at the bottom of the dash.
Underneath all this, The production Harrier (previously the H5X concept) will be based on Jaguar Land Rover's entry-level D8 SUV platform, variations of which support cars like the Land Rover Discovery Sport, Jaguar E-Pace and the Range Rover Evoque. Tata's version, called Omega-Arc (Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced Architecture) will involve the use of cheaper materials and components to keep costs down.
The new engine powering the Harrier is called the 2.0-litre Kryotec and is derived from FCA's Multijet II motor seen on the Jeep Compass. This four-cylinder, turbocharged motor is expected to produce around 140PS in the 5-seater variant that is set to debut first, the 7-seater Harrier will likely make 170PS. The new motor will have an electronically controlled variable geometry turbocharger (eVGT) for better responses. The engine has also been adapted to run on varying drive modes via the terrain response system that the Harrier will come equipped with. The engine will be mated to a six-speed manual and a six-speed automatic. The 5-seater should come in the Rs 9 to 12 lakh price bracket.
