Production-spec Tata Buzzard SUV spotted testing under camouflage
New spy pictures have emerged of the production version of the seven-seater Tata Harrier, revealed as the Tata Buzzard at this year's Geneva Motor Show. The test mules are heavily camouflaged but we suspect that most of the bits seen on the Geneva car will make it to India.
As we saw at Geneva, the spy images make it clear that the seven-seater Harrier will get a reworked rear-end. The section aft of the B-pillar is longer and boxier, with lightly reworked tail lamps and a bump on the roof, to allow for more headspace in the third row. The Buzzard, expected to be called the Cassini in production form, is 62mm longer than the Harrier.
It is based on a platform derived from the Land Rover Discovery Sport, and adopts Tata's Impact 2.0 design language. Visually, the Tata Buzzard looks similar to the Harrier, donning the slim LED DRLs, a honeycomb grille, flared wheel arches and the three-dimensional tail lights.
Powering the new seven-seater SUV will be the same Fiat Multijet 2 derived Kryotec diesel engine, however, it will be tuned to have a higher output of 172PS, similar to the Jeep Compass. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, but unlike the Compass, Tata will also have the option of a six-speed torque converter automatic transmission that it has sourced from Hyundai. This will also make its way to the Harrier in due course.
