The Tata Harrier has enjoyed a fair bit of success in its very own market, and now, Tata have launched the Harrier Camo Edition at a price of ₹ 16.50 lakh for the base model and ₹ 20.30 lakh for the fully equipped variant, which is identical to the Harrier Dark Edition that came with cosmetic alterations. However, the Camo Edition is sold only in certain variants – all above the XT variant. Two accessory packages are available: Camo Stealth and Camo Stealth+.
Looks that kill
On the outside, you’ll notice the Camo Green paintwork that gives the Harrier a very tough stance. This is a new colour and looks similar to the one seen on the Nexon. The lower half of grille, the side skirts, headlamp surrounds and the lower half of the glass house. Even the strip under the tail gate gets a black finish. You will also gets Tata cars lettering on the bonnet, front parking sensors, a side step, Camo decals on the roof, bonnet and doors.
Inside the Harrier
The cabin boasts of an all-black theme, like what you get on the Dark Edition. It features black leatherette seats and gets contrast Camo Green stitching while the dashboard gets a Blackstone ,Matrix trim, replacing faux-wood inserts. With the accessory package, you get a 3D moulded floor, trunk mats, sunshades, new OMEGARC scuff plates and a forest camo-themed back seat organiser.
Loaded with equipment
The features list remains absolutely the same. It comes equipped with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, push-button start, automatic climate control and wipers, automatic projector headlights, steering-mounted audio controls, panoramic sunroof. On the XZ variant, you get features, 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, HID Xenon projector headlights, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearshift knob, a 7.0-inch digital display in the instrument cluster, a 9-speaker JBL sound system, 60:40 split-folding rear seats and a panoramic sunroof.
Under the hood
Under the bonnet, the Harrier remains untouched, and so the Harrier Camo edition is powered by the same 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine produces 167bhp and 350Nm of torque. It comes paired either to a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission or a 6-speed manual gearbox. Turbo lag is evident initially, but the SUV pulls well in its mid-range. Acceleration is quick, and it maintains high speeds well. The shifts from the gearbox are smooth, for as long as it isn’t hurried. But when driving fast, the need for quicker shifts are felt. Driving in manual mode isn’t bad either.
The Harrier takes on SUVs like Nissan’s Kicks, Hyundai’s Creta, Kia’s Seltos and MG’s Hector. Also, read the latest car comparisons, only at autoX.
