Tata Harrier To Launch Next Year Based On The Land Rover Discovery Sport

Tata, as you may have heard, owns Jaguar Land Rover. It tends to keep its models fairly separate, marketed as they typically are in different segments and towards different customers. But that’s all about to change with the launch of the Harrier.

Previewed earlier this year by the H5X concept, the Tata Harrier is being built atop the same LR-MS/D8 platform that underpins the Land Rover Discovery Sport, Jaguar E-Pace, and the forthcoming next-generation Range Rover Evoque. Only this one’s destined for Tata showrooms in markets like India, the Middle East, and Africa.

We don’t have much in the way of details to go on at the moment, but Motor Authority projects it’ll be powered by a 2.0-liter turbodiesel four – potentially based on JLR’s Ingenium family – to be offered in two states of tune. It’ll be offered with manual or automatic transmissions and in front- or all-wheel drivetrains.

Toned down somewhat from the styling of the H5X concept, the Harrier will be among the first to adopt Tata’s newest design language – dubbed Impact Design 2.0 – which is set to proliferate across the Indian automaker’s lineup in the coming years.

The crossover will likely have room for five inside, with a seven-seater version to follow. Expect prices somewhat higher than the discontinued, budget-oriented Nano when the Harrier launches (in markets where Tatas are sold) sometime early next year. That is, at least, if Toyota doesn’t raise strong objections to the use of the name, which it applies to its own-badged version of the Lexus RX, and has since the late 1990s – not only in Japan, but in other Asian markets as well.

    ‘Expect prices somewhat higher than the discontinued, budget-oriented Nano when the Harrier launches’……
    Seriously? Nano is a city car/supermini or even smaller. Why would anyone with sane mind expect a similar price for a 5/7 seater compact crossover SUV?

  • Don’t think Toyota will be pleased with that name..

    And ofc will be momo expensive than a Toyota Harrier? Lol, i can’t even imagine someone putting 40k$ on a car having a TATA badge on its Back lmao.
