Dimensions: Harrier measures 4598 mm in length, 1894 mm in width and 1706 mm in height. It has a wheelbase of 2741 mm and ground clearance of 205 mm. Fuel tank capacity is 50 litres. Boot space is 425 litres, which can be extended to 810 litres with rear seats folded. With its big size, Harrier offers more space than any other car in the segment, including the 7 seater XUV500.
The engine spins at a meagre 1500 rpm @ 80 kmph, 1750 rpm @ 100 kmph, 2250 rpm @ 120 kmph and 2500 rpm @ 140 kmph (all in 6th gear). It’s no surprise that the Harrier accelerates briskly even at triple digit speeds, while it pulls cleanly in 6th gear from as low as 60 kmph without bogging down a bit.
Summing it up: It is clear that the Harrier is a driver’s car – period. It was a pleasant surprise and a revelation behind the wheel and the development engineers at Tata seem to have nearly nailed it on the head when it comes to driving dynamics and ride comfort. The Tata Harrier is a brilliant package and is engaging to drive with handling characteristics which are not expected from a car of it’s footprint.
Nevertheless, this is not only the best Tata car, but is also the best driver’s car made by any Indian car maker till date.
