Tata Harrier LED DRL will also be turn indicator – Similar to Audi, Mercedes SUVs
Tata Harrier will make global debut in the first week of December 2018. Hat tip to automotive enthusiast Aditya Chawande for sharing these exclusive photos of Harrier SUV.
As the global debut of the Harrier gets closer, more details about the SUV have started to surface. Latest spy images confirm that the front LED DRL of the Tata Harrier will also be the turn indicator. It is a similar style of indicator which is seen in expensive SUVs from Audi, BMW and Mercedes.
Aditya says – “On 19th October, I encountered Tata Harrier on Roads of Pune and it was testing the dual tone LED DRLs with Orange indicators embedded in it. Which will be used indicators as well as parking lights.”
Production of the Tata Harrier SUV has already started at company plant in Pune. Initially, the SUV will be offered only in FWD – MT combination. However, this would be the case for initial months only and later an AT option will also be offered.
It is well known at the moment that the 5-seater Harrier will employ a 2.0 litre 140hp Kryotec diesel engine. The motor will be mated to a 6-speed manual transmission unit for the initial months. Later, Tata will be sourcing a 6-speed AT unit from Hyundai which will be employed in the AT variants once they are launched. Only 2WD variant will be on offer at launch. 4WD will launch later.
Showcased as H5X (codename) at 2018 Auto Expo, Harrier comes with stylish bonnet creases, alloy wheels, wide wheel arches and a large windscreen. The front section has LED DRLs at the top, which gives it the looks of a fiery-eyed beast. Headlamps and fog lamps have been integrated into an arrow-shaped housing, which is unique and looks impressive. Harrier will have spacious interiors and offer luxurious seating. Other key features include sunroof, rear AC vents, dual airbags, infotainment system with HD display and surround sound.
Once launched in early 2019, the Harrier will compete with Mahindra XUV500, Jeep Compass and Hyundai Creta. Pricing for the Harrier is expected to start around Rs 13 lakhs. In case you are interested in the SUV, you can make the booking at a Tata dealer on their website by depositing Rs 30,000 as the booking amount.
