Tata Harrier, Safari XTA+: engine and gearbox
Both of Tata’s SUVs use the same 170hp, 350Nm, 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine. In these XTA+ variants, it is paired with a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
Tata’s next big launch for the Indian market is expected to be its all-new micro-SUV that was previewed at the 2020 Auto Expo as the HBX concept. The HBX will rival Hyundai's upcoming Casper small SUV and also go up against models such as the Maruti Suzuki Ignis.
