The Tata Harrier’s claimed fuel efficiency is 16.79 kmpl. How much does it deliver in the real world?

Tata Harrier

Tata’s latest offering, the Harrier, is powered by the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder Kryotec diesel engine that also powers the Jeep Compass. In the Harrier, this engine is available in a lower state of tune as it produces 33PS less power than the Jeep. Currently, it is only available with a 6-speed manual transmission, but an automatic variant is coming later this year.

We recently tested the Tata Harrier for its fuel efficiency and came back with some interesting findings. Take a look.

You can read our Tata Harrier review for all the details on the new SUV. The real-world efficiency figures are lower than Tata’s claimed numbers. That’s only expected since claimed figures are recorded under a controlled environment which are much more favourable than the real world.

If your travel is predominantly limited within city confines and a few inter-city journeys in the middle, the Harrier should be able to return a mileage of around 12 kmpl of diesel. That number is bound to drop in stop-go traffic, though. On the other hand, if you cruise on relatively wide and empty stretches without much of a traffic bother, expect an increase in that figure by around 2 kmpl.

Our road test team drives cars with a light foot and without any hurry so it’s possible to have a deviation from our tested figures. In the Harrier, the fuel run was done in Eco mode. Here, the Harrier feels evidently down on power and torque. The throttle response, too, becomes quite lethargic. So you pay for the efficiency with lowered performance. Moreover, the mileage of a car also depends on the traffic density in your city. If you own a Tata Harrier, do share your fuel efficiency findings in the comments section below.
