In the build-up to the media unveil of the Tata Harrier next month, the company is playing out a couple of videos of its new flagship SUV’s interior. These teasers give us a glimpse of the car’s widescreen infotainment unit and the Nexon-like side aircon vents, which is in sync with the details revealed by some of the spy images.
The first video highlights bits like the touchscreen infotainment unit, side aircon vents, and the three-spoke steering wheel. Other than this, it even gives us a look at the dual-tone dark grey-tan colour theme of the dashboard. The video’s tagline, ‘New Benchmark of Grandeur’, hints at a high-quality and a feature-laden cabin. The second video teaser gives us a closer look at the Nexon-like side aircon vents and the brushed aluminium trim that can be found in abundance on the dashboard. This video clip has a tagline ‘The new Benchmark of Contentment.’
The interior of the Tata Harrier doesn’t feature the button-less design seen on the H5X concept. The cabin of the production-spec model features a dark grey-tan dual-tone colour theme. The talking points of the interior include a floating-type touchscreen infotainment unit that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, tan leather upholstery, multifunction steering wheel, and a large colour-TFT multi-information display.
An earlier set of spy images reveal the strong focus on delivering generous legroom to the rear occupants. Furthermore, the rear passengers will reportedly enjoy features like dedicated smartphone storage slots, and an in-built cooled storage area under the front armrest. Other highlights of the cabin include one-litre bottle holders in the door pads, folding rear centre armrest with cupholders, and aircraft-inspired pull-up/push-down type parking brake lever.
The Tata Harrier has many firsts to its credit. For starters, it becomes the first production model to follow the company’s IMPACT 2.0 theme. Moreover, it is the first recipient of the OMEGA ARC modular platform that is based on the Jaguar Land Rover D8 architecture. Finally, it is the first-ever Tata SUV to sport an FCA-sourced 2.0-litre ‘Kryotec’ turbocharged diesel engine. The series production of the new model commenced on 30 October and the new model should launch in January. Bookings have been underway for a token amount of INR 30,000.
