Tata Motors: All variants of the Harrier get a USB Type C port at the front. Now in the Harrier XZ and above variants, USB Type C port will also be made available in the rear.
Tata Harrier & Safari: Tata Motors has added new features to the Harrier and Safari. These features will be available in XMS and above variants. Most of these features are tech and safety features, which are already being offered in the jet editions of the Harrier and Safari. Making these premium features available in lower-spec variants can help reach more customers. The new features added to the standard Harrier and Safari models will give them strength against the rivals (the cars they compete with in the market).
USB Type C port is available at the front in all variants of Harrier. Now in the Harrier XZ and above variants, USB Type C port will also be made available in the rear. The ESP has been upgraded in the XZS variant of the Harrier and above. It gets additional features like driver dose-off alert, after-impact braking and panic brake alert.
Many new features have also been given in its XZ + variant. This includes disc brakes, parking brake and wireless charger on all four wheels. The iRA Connected Car tech has also been updated with features like usage analytics, smartwatch app connectivity, drive analytics, auto and manual DTC checks and monthly health reports.
Like the Harrier, updates have also been given in the variants of Safari. It also gets all-wheel disc brakes, which are already available on the Safari. Talking about the Gold Edition, the updates are limited to the iRA. Features like Comfort Head Restraint will be available only on the XZ+ variant of Safari.
It is worth noting that the features update may have happened in select variants but the prices of all variants of Harrier and Safari have been increased. The price of Tata Harrier has increased from Rs 5 thousand to Rs 31 thousand, while the price of Safari has increased from Rs 9 thousand to Rs 20 thousand.
Both Harrier and Safari get the same Kryotec 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine. This engine generates 170 PS maximum power and 350 Nm peak torque. Transmission options include 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic.
