The Tata Harrier pricing has taken everyone by a storm. The mid-size SUV is all set to keep the sales chart ablaze. While present owners have had not so many issues to report, one thing that many ask is about the automatic trim. Looks like Tata Motors doesn’t want customers to wait any longer. The Tata Harrier automatic was recently spied testing. This signals the market introduction within the next 3-4 months.
Details about the Tata Harrier automatic
The Tata Harrier automatic will most likely use the transmission from the Tucson. Yes, a Hyundai-developed unit will be used in a Tata product. Moreover, the Tata Harrier may not be the first product to be launched with it. The 7-seater Harrier (H7X) will carry this unit first and later on will trickle down to the 5-seater unit. Back to the automatic though. It will be a 6-speed torque converter. As is evident from the image, it will also have a triptronic manual mode.
Not only this, the 7-seater Harrier will also have a more powerful version of the Kryotec diesel engine. Expect it to make 170PS and 350Nm. Combine this with the comparatively lower kerb weight of the Harrier and performance should be better than the Jeep Compass. Not only this, the regular Harrier too is expected to get this engine in BS-VI form.
With the addition of an automatic, Tata Motors may also slightly increase the equipment list of the Harrier. While specifics are awaited, we expect bigger wheels too. The Tata Harrier automatic will likely be priced Rs 60,000 over the regular car. The automatics will be limited to the top trim initially.
