Customised Tata Harrier from SRT Coimbatore gets dual-tone red and black paint job and it looks highly aggressive
Tata Motors introduced the Harrier with much anticipation in January 2019 and it has received tremendous response among Indian customers. Priced from Rs. 13 lakh and goes all the way up to Rs. 16.60 lakh (ex-showroom), one of the main highlights of the Harrier is the adorable design language.
Since it is based on the OMEGA (Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced) platform derived from Land Rover’s D8, it bears plenty of influence from the Discovery Sport. Including the wheelbase and the body structure, the Harrier has several similarities with the premium Land Rover cousin.
The monocoque SUV is the first Tata vehicle based on the Impact Design 2.0 philosophy. A few days back, Tata officially launched the dual-tone Harrier but long before that dealers and customising firms were applying a similar treatment to the SUV due to owners’ urge to personalise it.
SRT Coimbatore has come up with a customised Harrier and it takes inspiration from Range Rover Sport. With red body paint, the Harrier gains black treatment all over the pillars, roof and wing mirrors alongside blackened front grille, black housing for the headlamps and LED tail lamps and black lower grille.
Another key styling detail is the set of newly designed black alloy wheels. The integrated roof spoiler and shark fin antenna are done up in black colour as well. The exterior embellishments have certainly made the Harrier more upscale and they show the versatility and adaptability to modifications.
As standard, the Harrier takes power from a 2.0-litre Kryotec four-cylinder diesel engine and it produces 140 PS and 350 Nm. It is mated to a six-speed manual transmission while a six-speed torque converter automatic is expected to join the lineup in the coming months.
Later this year, Tata will be launching the seven-seater Harrier that debuted under the Buzzard name at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show this past March. Besides, the petrol-powered Harrier will likely debut early next year. The Altroz rivalling Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Hyundai Elite i20 will be revealed soon.
