The Tata Harrier and Royal Enfield twins don’t seem to have a problem staying in the limelight. Thankfully, both are under the spotlight for the right reasons. The Harrier media drives are already underway and while there is an embargo on the opinion till December 7, Tata Motors has released official images of the Harrier. While the first official photo was released for public consumption a month ago, now there are clear interior photos too. A day before the drives started, news trickled in about the Harrier’s specifications and it was slightly disappointing to note that there is no AWD on offer.

Not only this, Tata Motors is using a Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine. This engine produces less power than what it makes in the Jeep Compass. To give you a perspective, the engine produces 140PS/350Nm in the Harrier versus 178PS/350Nm in the Jeep. Worry not. The 7-seater version of the Harrier though will have the Compass’ engine in the same state of tune. The 6-speed manual gearbox too has been carried over from the Jeep. Without further ado, here are the images of the Tata Harrier that you’all have been waiting to see.

The Tata Harrier will breathe a fresh air in a segment that is dominated by the Hyundai Creta and Jeep Compass. The communication colour shown here is similar to the one that both the XUV500 as well as the Hyundai Creta have

The interior is dominated by the 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system. At the moment, it only has Android Auto but when the car will be launched sometime in Jan 2019, there will be Apple CarPlay as well

The instrument console is again semi-digital and gives a lot of information. Tata has also ensured that there are multiple storage options in the cabin. The centre stowage space has a vent as well and can hold two soft drink cans

 

Even from the side, the Tata Harrier looks lithe. Comparisons can be drawn from its bigger cousin, the Jaguar F-Pace SUV as well. 16-inch wheels are standard while the top trim brings in 17-inch alloys

The tail lights are LED units and look very nice when lit. The rear faux skid plate takes centre stage. There are no badges anywhere which specify what variant this will be.

 

While there is no AWD, there is a rotary dial in the cabin that modulates the ESP and helps the vehicle overcome tricky road conditions. 205mm ground clearance is on offer as well

While we haven’t driven the vehicle yet, given how this is a Land Rover-derived platform, expect the vehicle to have solid dynamics. Lotus Engineering had a hand in tuning the rear suspension. While it may not be for outright handling, expect Tata Motors to have retained a certain fun element

Be it whichever angle, there is no denying that the Tata Harrier looks very good and should draw in a lot of customers as well
