Spread over 4,000 acres, this world class proving ground is where manufacturers can test their car to the limit for all kinds of circumstances one could encounter in the real world as car owner. Watch the Harrier take two interesting tests in the latest video below.
Tata Harrier is built on the evolved IMPACT Design 2.0 philosophy. The Harrier will be seen with a wide front grille, LED DRLs, low mounted headlamps and high set tail lamps along with a floating roof and chunky 17” or 18” wheels. It will also get a raked windscreen, squared wheel arches and blacked out B pillars, while C pillars house a triangular quarter glass.
Interiors also exude a premium stance in a comfortable and spacious five seater layout. It has been spied with a large floating touchscreen display, central arm rests, rear AC vents, sunroof, steering mounted controls and memory function for front seats.
The Tata Harrier will also sport a big MID display between two analogue dials in the instrument cluster. With new safety regulations coming into effect, the Tata Harrier will be equipped with multiple airbags, ABS, EBD, hill descent control, ESP with roll over mitigation and traction control.
