Tata Harrier Gets A New Panoramic Sunroof Variant At A Much Lower Price
This new variant takes the fight to the Hector, offering a panoramic sunroof at a way lesser price
New variant is only available in a diesel-manual combo for now.
The price of the Harrier’s panoramic sunroof variant is now less by almost Rs 2 lakh.
Hector continues to be offered with a panoramic sunroof only in the top-spec variant.
Hyundai Creta is still the least expensive car to be offered with a panoramic sunroof.
Following in the footsteps of baby brother Nexon, Tata’s Harrier can now be had with a panoramic sunroof in a lower variant as well. The XT+ variant, which sits above the regular XT variant, is offered only with a manual transmission. The only addition over and above the XT variant is the panoramic sunroof, for which the XT+ commands a price of Rs 16.99 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi).
This is an introductory price by Tata Motors, and will only be applicable for those who book the car in September and take delivery before December 31, 2020. Prices of this variant will be hiked from October 1, 2020. Comparing this price to the regular XT variant, Tata Motors is asking for a Rs 59,000 premium which will only increase in the future.
When it comes to feature updates, the new XT+ variant only boasts of a new panoramic sunroof. It continues to come with a 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, an 8-speaker sound system, a reverse parking camera, automatic headlamps, cruise control, 17-inch alloy wheels, a fully automatic climate control and other features that are also found in the XT variant of the Harrier.
The sunroof was previously available only in the XZ+ and XZA+ variants of the Harrier. Comparing the manual XZ+ to the XT+, you will now be able to get a sunroof variant of the Harrier for Rs 1.91 lakh lesser.
Now, interestingly, the Hector can only be had with a panoramic sunroof in the top-spec Sharp variant. If you compare the diesel-manual version of that with the XT+ variant of the Harrier, the Harrier is less expensive by Rs 89,000 for now. However, if you compare the petrol-manual Sharp variant of the Hector with the XT+ variant of the Harrier, it is Rs 36,000 cheaper. So technically, the Hector still remains the least expensive of Harrier’s direct rivals in offering a sunroof, but only if you go for the petrol version.
However, if a panoramic sunroof is all you want and size and space isn’t a constraint, the Hyundai Creta offers a panoramic sunroof from the SX variant onwards. The petrol-manual combo goes for Rs 13.46 lakh whereas the diesel-manual is priced at Rs 14.51 lakh, both ex-showroom India.
Seeing that the XZ variant of the Harrier also gets a sunroof now, it's prices could be hiked in the future as well. Stay tuned to CarDekho for updates.
