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.

2019 Tata Harrier review, test drive

Should I buy one?

The first thing to remember with the Tata Harrier is that even though it borrows a basic platform, it is not a Land Rover. It is, instead, a rival to everything from the Mahindra XUV500 to the Jeep Compass, and your expectations have to be set accordingly.

It is, no doubt, a milestone moment for Tata Motors – the first time it’s properly leveraged its synergy with JLR – and though it’s a damn good product too, it’s not without its flaws. Ergonomics, some missing equipment and NVH come to mind. Moreover, even though the lack of AWD could be forgiven, people are already up in arms about the absence of an automatic gearbox option – and rightfully so. In a segment where 35 percent of sales are automatic, Tata Motors will miss out on a big chunk of potential buyers.

But there’s something more significant about the Harrier, and it’s that it feels like the first vehicle from an Indian brand that’s truly a global player; one that wouldn’t just sell, but potentially be quite successful in foreign markets. It’s a strong package, has great space and comfort, a plush interior, a good ride and striking looks. All that remains now is the price tag, which we’ll find out in January 2019. However, what we hear is that the Harrier will significantly undercut its chief rival the Jeep Compass, in which case the bigger, plusher and more spacious Tata is quite a steal, one we can confidently recommend. The Harrier has the makings of a winner.

I really like this car. Not that I would be able to afford one, but would be great if this comes to SA.

Tata Harrier Review | Tata Takes On The Compass | ZigWheels.com


You have to be out of your mind to spend 20 lakh on a Tata. Or not? That’s the question we’re answering in this review of what possibly is Tata’s biggest attempt to jump up the value chain.

With the Harrier, it seems like Tata has pulled out all the stops. Beginning with what’s underneath the swanky exterior.

It’s based on the D8 platform that also underpins the Land Rover Discovery Sport. But, all the aluminium has been ditched in favour of high-strength steel.

Under the hood is a 2.0-litre diesel engine developed by Fiat. Yep, it’s the same motor that also powers the Jeep Compass. But, it makes 140PS of power instead of 173PS, while torque is rated at 350Nm.

And while the platform and the engine suggest the Harrier is all-wheel drive, it’s not. Power is sent to the front wheels only.

As a consolation, you do get ‘Terrain Response’ modes - Rough Road and Wet. There are three drive modes too — Eco, City and Sport.

On the features front, Tata has thrown in quite a whole lot. There’s Xenon projector headlamps, cornering foglamps, 17-inch alloy wheels as well as LED tail lamps.

On the inside there’s a soft touch dashboard, and leather upholstery. Infotainment duties are handled by an 8.8-inch touchscreen, a 7-inch display in the instrument cluster and a sweet-sounding 9 speaker JBL audio system.

It’s loaded to the brim with safety tech too, including 6 airbags, ABS, ESP, traction control and hill descent control.

Mmmm .... if you do that currency conversion, it works out to R394 270.00

The competitor in SA I suppose would be the Haval H6C ... however if the Harrier were to be imported the price would most likely be even higher than the one above as that is the Indian pricing without our taxes or anything added on.
