Tata Harrier facelift design

The biggest update for the Harrier is up front, where it sports a new grille and split headlight design, with a full-width LED light bar above the grille. The new front bumper is split into two sections that's divided by a gloss black band.

In profile, the Harrier hasn’t changed much with the facelift, save for new designs for the 18- and 19-inch alloy wheels – the latter is only available with the Dark edition variants. At the back, the Harrier facelift gets a revised bumper, and the tail-lamp housing, though largely similar, gets new LED lighting elements that make it  seem slimmer than before. The overall design resembles the Harrier EV shown at Auto Expo 2023.

Tata Harrier facelift interior and features

Tata has made major changes to the Harrier's interior too. The dashboard ditches the faux wood trim and gets a mix of materials, including a textured top panel, gloss black surfaces and leatherette padding with contrast stitching – all underlined by a slim strip of LED ambient light.

The Harrier gets two infotainment touchscreen options – 10.25-inch and 12.3-inch, depending on the trim. It also gets a touch-based panel for the HVAC controls in the centre console, similar to the one seen on the new Nexon and Nexon.ev.

Other features on the Harrier facelift include a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, a new four-spoke steering wheel with a backlit Tata Motors logo, a new drive selector for automatic variants, a rotary knob for the drive selector with a digital display, dual-zone climate control, 10-speaker JBL-tuned sound system, rear window shades, 360-degree camera, panoramic sunroof and more.

Safety features include up to 7 airbags (6 airbags standard across the range), ADAS, hill-hold control, three-point seat belts with reminders for all passengers, and more.

Tata Harrier facelift powertrain, variants, colours

Under the hood, the Harrier facelift remains mechanically unchanged – the 170hp, 350Nm, 2.0-litre diesel engine is mated to a 6-speed manual or automatic gearbox. The automatic gearbox is only available from the Adventure+ variant onwards. It also gets three terrain response modes – Normal, Rough and Wet – and three driving modes (Eco, City and Sports). Tata Motors also says the suspension setup has been retuned to better suit our road conditions.

Like the Nexon facelift, Tata Motors has ditched the older nomenclature to adopt new ‘Persona-based’ trim names, and the Harrier now comes in four core trims – Smart, Pure, Adventure and Fearless – and gets additional packages bundled with various features that have a ‘+’ or ‘A’ suffix.

The Harrier is available in six colours – Seaweed Green, Ash Grey, Lunar White, Pebble Grey, Sunlit Yellow and Coral Red. The Oberon Black colour option is limited only to the Dark edition variants. Like in the Nexon, the trims of the Harrier facelift come with their own unique exterior and interior colour options. For example, the Fearless trims get the Sunlit Yellow colour with contrasting yellow accents inside.

Tata Harrier facelift rivals

The Harrier facelift continues to rival the 5-seat Mahindra XUV700, diesel versions of the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos, as well as the MG Hector and Jeep Compass
