Tata Motors has unveiled the first official teaser for the upcoming Harrier facelift, which is anticipated to launch in the coming weeks, likely during the Navratri season. Alongside the Harrier facelift, the company has also introduced the new Safari. Interested customers will have the opportunity to book the new Tata Harrier 2023 and the Safari facelift online or at authorized dealerships starting from October 6, 2023.
The initial teaser provides a glimpse of the design direction for the new Tata Harrier. The front fascia of the facelifted Harrier exhibits significant revisions and draws inspiration from the new Nexon EV. Notably, the SUV will feature a full-width LED daytime running light bar with a welcoming function positioned just above the grille. The Harrier retains its split headlamp configuration, incorporating new LED headlights housed in triangular enclosures on the lower bumper. While the side profile is expected to remain largely unchanged, the new model will come equipped with updated alloy wheels. At the rear, we anticipate a fresh tailgate design, connected LED tail-lamps, and a revised bumper.
Inside the cabin, the 2023 Tata Harrier is set to receive substantial updates, as indicated by previous spy shots. The SUV will feature a redesigned dashboard layout characterized by cleaner, horizontal lines. It will boast a new 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality, complemented by a 10.25-inch fully digital driver’s display.
The interior of the new Tata Harrier will showcase a new four-spoke steering wheel with a gloss black panel and an illuminated Tata logo. Similar to the new Nexon, the Harrier will adopt touch-based climate controls. For the automatic variants, the gear lever is expected to be shared with the Nexon, inspired by Land Rover cars.
Under the hood, the 2023 Tata Harrier is likely to retain the existing 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine, delivering 173 PS and 350 Nm of torque. Transmission options are expected to include a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed torque converter automatic. Additionally, the Harrier may receive a new 1.5-liter T-GDI turbo-petrol engine that made its debut at Auto Expo 2023, potentially offered with both manual and DCT transmissions.
