Tata Harrier Dark Edition video reviewed for the first time
Video starts by showing the exteriors of the Dark edition. The black colour paint scheme gives Harrier a menacing look. all the silver inserts that is found on a normal Harrier is removed and replaced with black inserts. even the chrome strip running above the window is also given a slight black finish.
The new paint scheme will attract more eyes on the road for sure. Design of the alloys in Dark edition remain same, but they are now blacked out. There is even a dark edition badge on both sides of the car. Apart from that everything else remains same as that of normal Harrier.
Mechanically, the Harrier stays the same. A 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine producing 140PS is still on offer. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox, however, the option of an automatic is still unavailable. The Tata Harrier rivals the Mahindra XUV500, MG Hector, Hyundai Creta, Renault Captur, Nissan Kicks, Jeep Compass and the newly launched Kia Seltos.
Commenting on the launch of this limited edition, Vivek Srivatsa, marketing head, passenger vehicles business unit, Tata Motors said, “In line with our endeavour to take the style quotient of the Harrier even higher, we wanted to offer a product that would make heads turn. The colour Black has always been desired amongst car buyers across the SUV segment. To meet these aspirations and to mark the onset of the festive season, we have launched the Harrier #Dark Edition today in a completely new avatar with a compelling package of striking exteriors and inviting interiors with 14 design enhancements. We are confident our customers will appreciate the Harrier in this look as much as they have appreciated the Harrier since its launch.”
