Tata H5X named “Harrier”
The Tata H5X has a new name: Harier. It will be the company’s new five-seater SUV and will be the first vehicle with the company’s IMPACT Design 2.0 styling.
The new Harrier is engineered on the new “Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced” (OMEGA) architecture, developed in collaboration with Jaguar-Land Rover and derived from the Land Rover D8 architecture. The Harrier will be produced at Tata Motors’ plant at Chakan, near Pune. Although much information has not been shared about the new SUV, we expect it to be powered by a fourcylinder diesel engine and offer a choice of manual or automatic transmission.
The name “Harrier” has been inspired from the name of the bird of prey and Tata Motors say that it implies “a dominant beast imbued with endless stamina and strength. Gifted with unwavering instinct. Effortlessly conquers every challenge thrown its way”. The Tata Harrier will be launched in the ‘first quarter of 2019’, which essentially means by March next year.
