The much-awaited Tata Harrier has been finally launched in the country. The pre-bookings for the mid-size SUV started in mid-October last year and deliveries will begin now . The car is offered in four variants and  are priced in a manner that they overlay the SUVs like Hyundai Creta, Mahindra XUV500 and Jeep Compass. While people who want to buy Creta will be impressed by Harrier’s huge size and Compass customers will be attracted by Harrier’s value for money. Check out the features of the car below:


Under the hood the Harrier gets a 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine sourced from Fiat, it makes 140PS of max power and 350Nm of peak torque. Power is sent to the front wheels only through a 6-speed manual transmission. A 6-speed automatic gearbox sourced from Hyundai will be introduced at a later stage. Unfortunately, Tata says it will not be offering the Harrier with a four-wheel drive system anytime soon.
