first_imgTata Motors has been readying itself for one of its biggest ever and most awaited launch of the year, the Harrier SUV or the H5X as it was previously known. According to dealer sources, the Harrier will make its official production-spec debut during the first week of December. However, it is still a question mark on the price announcement as of yet.Tata officially started taking in bookings for the upcoming Harrier SUV a few weeks back. The SUV first made its Indian debut at the 2018 Auto Expo. The booking amount is Rs 30,000 and refundable. The bookings can also production-spec on the newly launched Tata Harrier’s website.The Tata Harrier has been close on the heels of becoming one of the most awaited cars this year since its Indian debut at the 2018 Auto Expo held in February 2018.The Harrier will be built on the Omega platform which is a derivative of the L550 platform from the stables of Jaguar Land Rover for the Discovery Sport. This means the Harrier is slated to use the parts bin of the Discovery Sport which includes floor panels, all-independent suspension, and steering gear. However, steel will aluminum to optimize cost.The Harrier is also slated to share the wheelbase from the Discovery Sport which is 2,741mm and will be 4×4 capable like the Discovery Sport and will come with a proper 4×4 drivetrain.The best part yet, Tata designers have stated that the final production model will be very much similar to the concept model.

The powertrain will be mated to a 6-speed manual or a Hyundai sourced 6-speed automatic. The engine will get multiple drive modes which are already available on Tata’s Revotron and Revotorq line of engines.Interior wise, the Harrier will feature front and rear AC vents, sunroof, touchscreen infotainment system, steering mounted controls, electric seats with memory function, parking sensors, and reverse camera.last_img read more
