    The Tata Harrier will soon be available in dual-tone colour schemes. Tata Motors' cryptic teaser campaign on social media suggests the SUV is set to be offered with the option of new black-on-orange (Calisto Copper-Black) and black-on-silver (Ariel Silver-Black) schemes. In either case, orange and silver will be the primary body colours while the roofs on these dual-tone versions will sport a contrast black finish. So far, the Harrier could be accessorised with official roof decals though full-length roof wraps were offered as dealer-level extras. Expect the dual-tone combos to add about Rs 60,000 to the Harrier’s price. The Harrier will remain on sale in the existing mono-tone paint schemes, namely Calisto Copper, Ariel Silver, Thermisto Gold, Telesto Grey and Orcus White, the last of which is the only colour available on base XE trim.

    The Harrier will be the latest Tata model to be offered with dual-tone colour options. Dual-tone paint schemes are an option on the Tiago, Nexon and Hexa, and are standard on the Tiago NRG, Tiago JTP and Tigor JTP.

    The Harrier dual-tone’s teaser campaign comes at a time when the Tata SUV's latest competitor, the MG Hector, has been in the spotlight. The Hector’s competitive price tag is sure to wean some buyers away from the Harrier, which has been the value pick among SUVs of the size so far. Also, Tata Motors had only recently hiked Harrier prices.

    Dual-tone paint options aside, the Harrier is set to get crucial mechanical updates in the months and years to come. First up, will be the upgradation to a BS6-spec version of the 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel engine. In BS6-spec the Fiat-sourced engine will make power in the region of 170hp, up from the current 140hp. The Harrier will also get a Hyundai-sourced 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox further down the road, and a 1.6-litre turbo-petrol engine-powered version is also in the works. Come 2020, the larger and seven-seat version of the Harrier, shown as the Buzzard at the 2019 Geneva motor show, will also go on sale.
