This is it. No more teaser videos; no more camouflaged images. Tata has finally launched its hotly-anticipated SUV, the Harrier. We have already driven the Harrier, but we can’t share our thoughts with you yet. But, here’s what you need to know about the SUV.

The SUV uses Tata’s new design language called ‘IMPACT Design 2.0’. The Tata Harrier sits on Land Rover’s D8 platform. Tata says that the D8 platform will provide “exemplary driving dynamics” on and off the road. The Harrier shares its platform with the Disco Sport and the Evoque, so you can expect some serious driving competences from it. This platform has been used by the company broadly. In fact, JLR has sold more than 1 million cars based on the D8 platform. Cars such as the Range Rover Evoque, the Land Rover Discovery Sport and the Jaguar E-Pace all use the D8 platform. Even the suspension setup was made with input from Land Rover and Lotus engineering. Quite impressive, isn’t it?

Under the hood, there’s a 2.0-litre diesel with an electric variable geometry turbocharger sourced from FCA. The 2.0-litre oil-burner churns out 137bhp and 350Nm of torque. The motor is mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Just like the Nexon, the Harrier too gets different driving modes – Eco, City and Sport. Furthermore, the ESP gets three more driving modes – Normal, Rough and Wet.

In terms of feature, it gets an 8.8-inch touchscreen display with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, 320W JBL sound system, navigation, voice recognition, auto headlamps and rain sensing wipers. Wait, the list doesn’t end here. It is also equipped with electric ORVMs, automatic climate control, rear AC vents, eight-way adjustable driver’s seat and projector headlamps.

Tata says that The Harrier has been crash-tested over 300 times in real life scenarios at Tata's in-house crash facility. So, Tata is pretty serious when it comes to keeping its occupants safe. Its safety net consists of ABS, EBD, corner stability control, off-road ABS, traction control, hill hold control, hill descent control, roll-over mitigation, parking cameras and brake assist.

Now, for the main bit, price. Well, Tata hasn’t revealed the prices yet, but we expect the Harrier to cost between Rs 16-21 lakh.
