The production version of the Tata H5X Concept has been christened Tata Harrier. It is expected to be launched in the first half of 2019.

The Tata Harrier will be the first vehicle to feature the Impact Design 2.0 design language.

The latest teaser images indicate that the Harrier gets a V-shaped grille flanked by slim headlamp clusters. It has a dual-tone exterior with blacked-out roof panel and pillars as well as a chrome trim along the top edges of the windows.

The Harrier has a raked rear windshield with an integrated roof spoiler and slim wraparound tail lights.

The Tata Harrier is a 5-seater monocoque SUV, based on Tata's new Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced (OMEGA) architecture, which has been developed in collaboration with Jaguar Land Rover and is derived from the Land Rover D8 platform.

Tata Motors hasn't announced the power-trains that will be offered on the Harrier.

The SUV is rumoured to be powered by a Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine producing 140 BHP and is likely to be paired with a 6-speed manual or 9-speed automatic transmission.

New Tata Harrier based on Range Rover Evoque platform

Indian owner of JLR is set to move upmarket with Harrier SUV in 2019, bringing advanced tech and architecture from Land Rover models

Tata Motors will make the most of its ownership of Jaguar Land Rover with a new global-market SUV in 2019.

Called the Harrier, the model is tasked with boosting the Indian car maker’s fortunes in its home market, plus the Middle Eastern and African regions.

Based on the H5X concept shown at the Geneva Motor Show, the production Harrier’s design has been teased in a video (below).

While the overall style and large proportions remain, the production version appears to have toned down a little of the concept’s exterior boldness. Its interior is yet to be seen, but Tata promises best-in-class quality, space and connectivity.

The Harrier will share a significant amount under the skin with current Land Rover models, showing Tata’s push upmarket from its budget roots. It sits on the brand’s Omega modular architecture, which is a version of Land Rover’s D8 platform adapted to suit Indian road conditions.

The D8 platform underpins the current Range Rover Evoque, seven-seat Land Rover Discovery Sport and Jaguar E-Pace SUVs. Five and seven-seat versions of the Harrier are expected.

In India, the Harrier will be powered by a Fiat Chrysler-sourced 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine in two states of tune. Four-wheel-drive will be available, while there's potential for a hybrid variant later in the car’s lifecycle.

Tata as a brand has no presence in the UK, but the new SUV’s success could significantly impact the chances of it arriving here in the future.

I think this might be a awesome looking car. If they do launch it here (which I hope they do, but not optimistic as TATA SA has not brought in the Tiago etc, only the Bolt) then they would go up against Haval I assume.

More spy images of the Tata Harrier's interior have surfaced online. The new images give us a detailed look at the SUV's dashboard layout, infotainment system and instrument cluster.

The Harrier is expected to get dual-tone interiors with brown door panel inserts and matching seats with a quilted pattern.



The dashboard has a glossy centre console with silver trim and a floating touchscreen infotainment system.

The rotary drive mode selector is placed in front of the gear lever, which also has silver trim on the knob. A pull type handbrake lever can be seen between the cup holders and the gear lever. The car also has a front centre armrest.

In addition to the usual buttons, the key fob has a boot release switch as well.

On the driver's side, the Harrier get a 3-spoke multi-function steering wheel. The instrument cluster has an analogue speedometer and digital colour screen on the left hand side, which displays the tachometer and MID.

The Harrier also gets an engine start/stop button.

The Tata Harrier is based on the Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced (OMEGA) platform derived from Land Rover's D8 architecture.

It is expected to be powered by FCA's 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine with 140 BHP and is likely to be paired with a 6-speed manual or a Hyundai-sourced 6-speed automatic transmission.
