Range Rover-inspired Tata Harrier R edition is turning heads [Video]
Tata Harrier is currently one of the most popular SUVs sold by Tata in the market. The SUV has become popular among buyers for its bold looks and is one of the best looking SUVs in its segment. Tata updated the Harrier a year after the initial launch and offered more features and an automatic transmission. Like any other car, Tata Harrier also has modification potential and we have seen many tastefully modified examples of Harriers in the past. Tata even launched Safari on the market last year, based on the Harrier SUV. Here we have a video of a Tata Harrier getting Range Rover-inspired modifications.
The video was uploaded by AutoTrend TV to their YouTube channel. The vlogger talks about the modification that has been made to the SUV. The vlogger mentions that the modification seen on this Tata Harrier was done by SRT Motors which is a Tata dealership in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. Vlogger can be heard in the video that the dealership offers a variety of customization options for Harrier and other cars.
The Tata Harrier in the video gets a two-tone paint job. The Harrier seen here is the first version that generates 140 Ps. It did not offer features such as panoramic sunroof, electrically adjustable seats and auto-dimming IRVMs and many other features. The SUV in the video is painted in a red shade inspired by Range Rover SUVs. The color definitely looks interesting on the car. The black cladding on the lower part of the bumper and around the car was also painted red. The pillars and the roof were finished in black. The whole car gets a premium look after the paint job.
The headlights of this Tata Harrier have been smoked and the gloss black Harrier moniker has been placed on the bonnet. Coming to the side profile, one would notice the new wheel set. The original Tata Harrier alloy wheels have been replaced with an aftermarket unit from Momo, an Italian brand. The overall look of the SUV is pretty good and it’s a head turner, especially because of the red paint job. Vlogger mentions in the video that the approximate cost for this modification was around 2 lakh. This is an old video and we assume that over the last two years prices may have gone up.
No changes were made to the engine of this SUV. As mentioned above, this is the first version of Harrier that generated 140 Ps and 350 Nm of peak torque. Tata updated Harrier in 2020 and it now comes with more features and a much more powerful engine. The motor is the same as before but, it generates 170 Ps and 350 Nm of torque. Harrier’s 2.0-liter Kryotec turbocharged diesel engine is available with a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic transmission option. The price of Tata Harrier currently starts at Rs 14.49 lakh, ex-showroom and goes up to Rs 21.34 lakh, ex-showroom.
