    Tata Harrier to launch with diesel manual option only

    The Tata Harrier is still a good month or more away from launch but a lot of the SUV’s details and specifications are out in the public domain. We already know the Harrier will be a five-seater and will come powered by an approximately 140hp, 2.0-litre diesel engine christened Kryotec. Also, while a 6-speed manual gearbox will be standard fit, we were the first to tell you the Harrier will also be offered with a 6-speed automatic sourced from Hyundai. In a fresh update, we can now confirm the Harrier will be launched solely with a manual gearbox and front-wheel drive. The automatic transmission will only go on sale after it makes its debut on the Harrier’s yet unnamed seven-seat sibling that comes later in 2019.

    It is learnt that the automatic gearbox will make its debut in the BS-VI version of the SUV that will debut along with the 7-seater model. Tata Motors that foresees strong demand for the automatic has opted to delay bringing in the model rather than being in a position that it can’t deliver cars on time.

    Automatic transmission aside, the Harrier’s seven-seat sibling will come powered by a 170hp version of the 2.0 Kryotec engine. Interestingly, this more powerful version of the Kryotec engine will also make its way onto the Harrier in the future.

    Yes, it could give new life to a slow-selling car



    Yes, but only if there are significant changes



    No, it's confusing and dilutes the brand name



    No difference, the product speaks for itself
