The Tata Harrier was launched in January this year and will receive an automatic variant in the coming months, however, it is yet to receive a black paint option
Tata Harrier has been quick with striking a chord with the Indian SUV buyers. Its futuristic looks, tried-and-tested engine, comfortable cabin, and great pricing has definitely helped the model establish itself well in the market. Soon, it will even receive a Hyundai-sourced automatic transmission and, maybe, an electric sunroof and four-wheel-drive hardware.
The Tata Harrier is currently available in colour options – Thermisto Gold, Telesto Grey, Calisto Copper, Ariel Silver, Orcus White. This means that anyone looking to buy a black-coloured Harrier will have to head the aftermarket way. While painting a vehicle requires several complications, one can always go for a wrap, which is a far simpler method.
What’s more, one can even restore the factory look by easily removing the wrap. Here is a video of a modified Tata Harrier with a black wrap that should give you a fair idea of how this SUV looks like in an all-black avatar.
The owner of this modified Tata Harrier has covered every panel of his SUV in a Black Satin Wrap from Avery Dennison, a company that excels in wrapping films that combine colour, texture, and clear protective layers. The high-quality wrap ends up offering a smooth finish. The owner of this Tata Harrier has even painted the company-fitted 5-spoke alloy wheels in a black shade to compliment the wrap. The cost of the wrap is roughly Rs 50,000.
The Tata Harrier is the first vehicle to be designed as per Tata’s Impact 2.0 theme. It is also the first-ever vehicle to be built on the Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced (OMEGA) architecture. The modern platform has been derived from the Jaguar Land Rover’s L550 platform.
Powering the Tata Harrier is a Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre Multijet II engine that produces a maximum power of 140 PS and a peak torque of 350 Nm. The motor comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. In the coming months, the company will introduce an automatic variant that will feature a Hyundai-sourced 6-speed torque-converter automatic unit.
