- The Tata Harrier will get a Hyundai-sourced six-speed torque converter AT.
- It is expected to be offered in the XT and XZ trims.
- The automatic version will cost Rs 1 lakh over the manual model.
A test prototype of the Tata Harrier automatic variant was spotted recently ahead of its launch in the months to come. Besides the automatic gear-shift lever, visible in the spy shots, the test mule features no changes.
The Tata Harrier is expected to feature a Hyundai Creta-sourced six-speed torque converter automatic transmission. The Harrier automatic is expected to be offered in the higher-spec XT and XZ variants. The automatic gearbox will be mated to a BS-VI compliant 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel motor that will reportedly churn out a maximum power of 170bhp and 350Nm peak torque. In comparison, the BS-IV version makes 138bhp and 350Nm.
Features list on the automatic variant is likely to remain unchanged, so expect it to come with the multiple terrain-response settings for the ESP and the drive mode selector. The Harrier automatic is expected to cost around Rs 1 lakh over the corresponding manual variant. Besides the automatic version, Tata Motors will also launch an all-black Harrier this month.
Further, Tata Motors will also launch a seven-seat version of the Harrier, which debuted as the Tata Buzzard at this year's Geneva Motor Show. The SUV will be launched in the first quarter of 2020, and will get a different nameplate for the Indian market. In addition to an automatic transmission, the seven-seat Harrier is also likely to feature an AWD drive-train.
