Tata Harrier Price Talk

The complete list of introductory prices for the 2023 Tata Harrier is finally here. The SUV has received a whole lot of changes in this facelift, and with that, it’s become costlier too. The Harrier still comes with only a diesel powertrain and rivals the 5-seater diesel variants of the Mahindra XUV700 along with the diesel-powered MG Hector, Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos.  So let’s have a look at how its new prices fare against the others.

Key Takeaways

  • The starting price of the Tata Harrier is the second-highest among its competitors. Its base variant costs a lakh more than the base-spec Mahindra XUV700 diesel.

Tata Harrier

  • The most expensive entry-level diesel option here is the MG Hector, which starts from Rs 18 lakh (ex-showroom). Its base variant is priced similar to the mid-spec AX5 of the XUV700 and HTX Plus of the Kia Seltos diesel.

MG Hector

  • The Hyundai Creta is the most affordable diesel SUV in this list, closely followed by the Seltos, with prices starting from Rs 12 lakh.

  • The top-end diesel manual Harrier is the most expensive, and the only one which crosses the Rs 25 lakh mark. It is over Rs 1.5 lakh costlier than the top-spec diesel manual variant of the Mahindra XUV700 AX7. However, we are not considering it here as it only comes as a 7-seater, making it a closer rival to the Tata Safari instead.

Mahindra XUV700

  • The Tata Harrier facelift gets a 170PS 2-litre diesel engine, same as the MG Hector and with the same output, while the Mahindra XUV700 comes with a 185PS 2.2-litre diesel engine. The smaller Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos come with a 116PS 1.5-litre unit.

  • For transmission options, the Harrier, Hector, XUV700 and Creta get a 6-speed manual, but the Seltos comes with an iMT option (manual without clutch pedal).

  • It is important to note that the updated Tata Harrier offers more as standard than its similarly sized rivals, and its top-end variant is better equipped overall as well.

Key Takeaways

  • Here, the Tata Harrier has the highest starting price, while the other diesel automatics are far more accessible. The entry-level XUV700 diesel-automatic undercuts it by over a lakh.

  • The base-spec Harrier diesel automatic is priced the same as the one-below-top GTX Plus diesel automatic variant of the Kia Seltos. The Korean compact SUV is the most affordable diesel-auto here, starting at Rs 18.20 lakh.

Kia Seltos

  • The MG Hector does not get an automatic transmission with its diesel engine.

  • The top-spec diesel automatic variant of the Hyundai Creta is affordable by Rs 80,000 compared to the base-spec Harrier automatic.

  • Easily crossing the Rs 25 lakh mark, the Harrier is the most expensive model in its top variant compared to all five-seater rivals here. The top-spec Mahindra AX7 is slightly more expensive, with the advantage of AWD, but is not being considered here as it is only offered as a 7-seater SUV.

  • All four models come with a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission option.

Hyundai Creta

  • Once again, we must factor in that the Harrier is better equipped at both ends of the diesel-automatic list of variants, compared to its 5-seater rivals.
