-Seven-seat version of the Harrier
-62mm longer than the Harrier
-Expected to get the same 2.0-litre diesel but with higher state of tune
Tata has unveiled the Buzzard SUV at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Codenamed the H7X, it is essentially a seven-seat version of the Harrier and is 62mm longer than the five-seat model. The Buzzard is named so for a bird of prey from the Buteo family of raptor birds.
It gets the same interior and exterior design as the Harrier but with the addition of two more seats and consequently, a third row. This car is underpinned by the OMEGA platform and will be offered with the same 2.0-litre diesel engine.
However, this engine will be in a higher state of tune as compared to the Harrier’s 170bhp. A six-speed manual will be standard, but one should also look out for a Hyundai-sourced six-speed automatic.
This car is coming to India and is most likely to be brought to the country once the Altroz has been launched here. Whereas the Harrier is currently a rival to the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Nissan Kicks and Renault Duster, this car will take on the Mahindra XUV500 and Tata’s very own Hexa.
