The Tata Harrier ranked among the best-selling moderate SUVs in former years. Still, with the introduction of modern SUVs like the Hyundai Alcazar and Mahindra XUV700, it has begun to feel dated. While it is well-equipped, the rivalry has advanced with more next-generation capabilities, most of which are now absent in the Harrier. Nevertheless, there’s no need to panic since Tata Motors has already been developing a facelifted edition of the Harrier. We’ve seen a computer depiction of how the SUV will look.
The next iteration of the moderate SUV will appear like this digital depiction of the facelifted Tata Harrier, which has been posted on the YouTube channel of SRK Designs. The photos show that the new Harrier will have a new front fascia, which is clear and has been verified by the disguised test mules of the SUV that are presently being trialled in the nation. The changes to the front make the Harrier seem much more appealing and sportier than it does now.
The split concept for the headlights is retained in this computer rendition of the Tata Harrier. The placement of the headlights here, although, appears to be different since the projectors for the primary headlight have been relocated to the higher mounting close to the grille. Compared to the elegant strip of dual turn indicator, these new enclosures look relatively more significant, containing turn identifiers and LED daytime adaptive headlights. Only the circular fog lights are installed in the lower portion of the split headlight.
A minor remodelling
Other improvements in this graphic rendition of the Tata Harrier comprise new five-spoke alloy wheels and a crisper, wider-looking front grille with square inlays. The bottom section of the primary bumper has also been somewhat modified, with a bifurcated design for the air dams. Aside from these alterations, this digital rendering of the Tata Harrier seems quite similar to the current-spec Harrier, implying a minor makeover.
It should be emphasised that this visual depiction is a virtual artist’s creative idea, not the final appearance of the Tata Motors-approved design for the facelifted Harrier. While the new Harrier will have a revised interior appearance and a few additional features, it is believed to keep the 2.0-liter four-cylinder 170 PS diesel engine and both 6-speed conventional and 6-speed automatic gearbox options.
