Tata Motors has hinted at the fact that the Harrier will soon receive dual-tone colour schemes. Tata is likely to offer the Harrier in two new dual-tone shades. While one of the base shades is expected to be the Calisto Copper shade that is offered with the Harrier, the second could be either Ariel Silver or Orcus White. Both shades are expected to get a blacked-out roof to complete the dual-tone scheme. We don’t expect Tata to offer anything new in the interior though.
- Likely to be available only in two dual tone shades; no interior colour changes expected.
- 5 monotone colour shades to remain unchanged.
- Tata could charge a premium of nearly Rs 50,000 over the monotone variant.
Tata has been offering roof decals as an official accessory for less than Rs 9,000 while these contrasting shades could inflate the Harrier’s prices by around Rs 50,000. Alternatives to the Tata Harrier such as the Hyundai Creta, Jeep Compass and the upcoming Kia Seltos offer a dual tone colour option from the factory itself. The Tata Harrier’s stablemates like the Nexon, Tiago, Tigor and Hexa are also available with the dual-tone roof options.
The Harrier has undergone slight updates since its launch earlier this year. A few months ago, it received Apple CarPlay, and in the coming months, Tata will offer a 7-seater version of the Harrier as well as a Hyundai-sourced automatic option with the diesel engine, a new petrol engine option and probably a sunroof as well. The Tata Harrier is likely to receive a more powerful BS6 compliant 2.0-litre diesel engine which debuted with the Jeep Compass Trailhawk.
The Harrier received a price hike recently and it now ranges between Rs 13 lakh to Rs 16.56 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
