Tata unveils Land Rover-Based Harrier crossover designNovember 22, 2018
The Indian auto giant is preparing to launch a new crossover built on the basis of the classic Land Rover model. The flagship Harrier will be released only next year, but now the company decided to lift the veil over the interior design.
Back in October 2018, we could see the design of the new flagship from Tata – Harrier SUV. The car has a modern design with two-level front optics, large enough for the Indian market, as well as the Omega Arc platform, which is a simplified version of the D8 platform from Jaguar Land Rover.
Earlier it was expected that the flagship will receive an interior design in the style of modern Mercedes models, differing in the company’s multimedia MBUX. But today’s video from the press service shows that the model will receive its design, but much simpler. The instrument panel will receive analog devices with a large display between them, as well as a “floating” multimedia screen on the center panel. The steering wheel also will not be different originality, and instead of the joysticks will receive the usual buttons.
According to preliminary information, Harrier will be equipped with a single engine – a 2.0-liter turbodiesel with a maximum capacity of up to 140 horsepower. In the home market, orders for Tata Harrier are already being taken, although prices have not yet been announced, because the start of sales is scheduled only for January 2019.
Meanwhile, the Tata Nexon crossover has successfully crashed. Indian SUV tested Global NCAP – the European Committee for the conduct of independent crash tests of cars with an assessment of active and passive safety.
