Tata Motors is continuously working to ensure that Harrier and Safari stay ahead of the competition. The latest additions to the Harrier range will also be available for Safari.
Given the coup of successful updates Tata Harrier has taken recently, including visual enhancements, new comfort and convenience features, safety upgrades and latest in-car tech, it's not surprising that it's been chosen as the platform to be updated with a petrol option. What's different about Harrier compared to other rivals is that the petrol variant will be significantly cheaper than diesel variants. This makes it easy for them to target a larger customer base.

Harrier facelift is set to get refreshed styling with changes to the front grille, headlamps and bumpers. A new set of alloy wheels and subtle changes at the rear are also anticipated. On the inside, Harrier facelift will be getting a larger touchscreen infotainment system. The screen size could be anywhere from 10-inches all the way up to 12-inches.

Tata Harrier's latest facelift is attributed to automotive enthusiast Eeshwar Kabra. Another focus area could be improvements to Harrier's off-roading capabilities, which might include tweaks to the suspension setup. Overall the quantum of changes could be more in the case of Safari in comparison to Tailander, as it now has a more aggressive challenger with the release of Scorpio-N.
Harrier petrol variant
Harrier is currently undergoing a small makeover with the introduction of a new 1.5-litre turbo petrol motor for its range, which will replace its current 1.2-litre turbo petrol motor. While basic engine architecture will remain the same, it'll be on offer with an added cylinder to boost the output power to 150 bhp. Its closest rival, XUV700, uses a 2.0-litre turbo petrol motor that puts out 197 bhp of power.
Harrier and Safari’s 2.0-litre turbo diesel motor produces 170 horsepower and 350 Newton metres. This will be continued in the current form, with transmission options including 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic. Harrier gasoline variants are also expected to get both manual and automatic transmission options.
Harrier is an SUV that's designed to look sharp and powerful. There are no passengers around, just SUV fun with a long range of diesel and petrol variants ranging in price up to Rs 24 lakh. Harrier facelift petrol variant will be available at a starting price of Rs 1.34 lakh cheaper than the top-spec model coming in early 2023.
