    The Harrier’s updated diesel engine offers better performance as well as improved fuel efficiency (manual), over the outgoing version. But while it is quieter than before, this diesel is still quite clattery, and the overall refinement falls short of class standards. What’s nice are the new panoramic sunroof and additional equipment, which lift the cabin experience. Spec-for-spec, the Harrier is pricier than its key rival, the MG Hector, by as much as Rs 1 lakh, but the real ace up the Tata’s sleeve is its diesel-automatic configuration, which gives it an edge over the MG, as well as the much more expensive Jeep Compass. This 6-speed automatic is smooth, seamless and the answer to what the majority of Harrier buyers were looking for. The addition of an automatic and extra features builds on the Harrier existing strengths to make it a complete SUV and a far more compelling buy.
