Though the power figures are still under the mask, it is safe to assume that the new diesel will produce power north of 150bhp and will be the most powerful engine by Tata in it’s passenger car segment. Tata Motors said that the engine itself is inspired by the cryogenic rocket engine and have focused on making the motor, both, more reliable without compromising on the engines punchiness.
In their recent statement, Tata Motors also claims that engine has been benchmarked against global standards of performance and refinement. Tata Harrier needed a completely new approach to product development and manufacturing processes. The completely new world-class assembly line has been built in a record time of 6 months with the best manufacturing practices adopted from Jaguar Land Rover. It boasts of 90% automation levels with over 100+ KUKA and ABB robots.
The Impact 2.0 design language has lend the car a very futuristic look and lend it a character never seen before on any Tata product. The Tata Harrier is based on the all new Omega ARC architecture that has been derived from Land Rover’s legendary D8 architecture on which over 1 million SUVs have been sold worldwide.
