Tata Harrier

  • New Tata Harrier is priced from Rs 12.69 lakh to Rs 16.25 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai)

  • For now, the Harrier will only be available with a 2.0-litre diesel engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.

  • A 7-seat variant of the Harrier will also be introduced by the end of 2019.

The much-awaited Tata Harrier has been launched in the country, with prices ranging from Rs 12.69 lakh to Rs 16.25 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai). Tata began accepting pre-launch bookings for the mid-size SUV in mid-October last year and deliveries are set to begin from today itself.

Rs 16.25 lakh

Tata is offering the Harrier in four variants and they are priced such that they overlap with SUVs such as the Hyundai Creta, Mahindra XUV500 and Jeep Compass. While those looking at buying a Creta will be attracted by the Harrier’s sheer size, those who are considering the base-spec Tucson or Compass will be tempted by the Harrier’s value-for-money proposition.

Rs 12.69 lakh - Rs 16.25 lakh

Hyundai Creta

Rs 9.50 lakh - Rs 15.10 lakh

Mahindra XUV500

The Tata Harrier is quite a large SUV. In terms of dimensions, it manages to trump its immediate competition like the Jeep Compass, Mahindra XUV500 and Hyundai Tucson in almost all dimensions. The only place where the Harrier comes in second is in the height department, where it stands behind the XUV500. You can read more about it in our spec comparison.

Ground Clearance

205mm (Unladen)

Boot Space

425 litres/810 litres (with rear seats folded)

Tyre Size

235/70 R16 (XE,XM); 235/65 R17 (XT,XZ)


Under the bonnet of the Harrier lies a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine sourced from Fiat. It is tuned to make 140PS of max power and 350Nm of peak torque. The same engine also powers the Harrier’s chief rival, the Jeep Compass, albeit in a higher state of tune. Power is sent to the front wheels only through a 6-speed manual transmission. A 6-speed automatic gearbox sourced from Hyundai will be introduced at a later stage. Sadly, Tata says it will not be offering the Harrier with a four-wheel drive system anytime soon. However, it does get driving modes (Eco, City and Sport) which work in tune with terrain response modes (Normal, Wet and Rough) to help it tackle various conditions on the road.


When it comes to features, the new Tata Harrier is quite loaded. The top-spec XZ variant gets an 8.8-inch floating touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto, a 9-speaker JBL sound system that also includes a subwoofer, a 7-inch MID (multi-info display) in the instrument cluster, HID projector headlamps, fog lamps with cornering function, six airbags, ESP, hill hold control, hill descent control, rollover mitigation, corner stability control, electronic traction control, terrain response modes and ISOFIX child seat anchors.

The XT variant is also decently specced. It gets dual front airbags, LED DRLs which also act as turn indicators, 17-inch alloy wheels, auto climate control, push button start-stop, electrically foldable ORVMs, automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, cruise control and a cooled storage box underneath the front armrest. For more information, read our ‘Tata Harrier: Variant Details’.


The Harrier is placed in a segment that is expected to grow quite rapidly this year. The Jeep Compass was the first to carve this space out when it was launched in India back in 2017. With the launch of the new Harrier, expect sales figures in this segment to go up by a substantial margin. Later this year, this segment will also witness the arrival of the MG Hector. The Harrier’s automatic variant is also expected to arrive around that time. Expect it to be a true test for all SUVs in this space come mid-2019.
